User:22.214.171.124 redirects here. Between July 24, 2004 and January 9, 2005, I made edits w/o a username, and a few times since then, I may have inadvertently edited w/o logging in. Ooops! July 24 is when I got cable modem, finally, and a static IP. Prior thereto, I was on dialup, and despite my best efforts, have been unable to find a reliable list of my anon edits. Oh well. :-p Tomer TALK 04:32, May 16, 2005 (UTC) Apparently I'm now editing from 126.96.36.199 (talk · contribs).
This page was starting to suffer from userbox overload, so I got rid of all of them and put them here instead. Enjoy.
I first started messing around on wikipedia several years ago, at which time I was unaware that there was a login or contributors' list, or whatnot. Most of my dillydallying has been starting or contributing to articles about Jews and Judaism, as well as a few minor edits in other fields. I first signed up as a real "user" just a couple months ago, so now I've gotta be careful, since now ppl can see what I'm doing... ;-) TShilo12 01:17, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)
OK, and so now, I spent a little time compiling a list of articles I started...have yet to compile a list of articles to which I've contributed extensively. For those wondering how many edits I've made on the English WP, click here. And here's a collection of garbage I've found on WP.
I was born at 8:38 PM Atlantic time, April 15, 1972, in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. That's right, income tax day. Since puertorricans don't pay U.S. Federal Income Tax, however, it's not such an evil day there.
I've lived in the Town of Washington, in Eau Claire County, Wisconsin (just south of Eau Claire, Wisconsin) since I was 7 years old. I hate winter, and blame it on the fact that I'm from Puerto Rico, eventhough my memories of PR are rather scanty, and none of them have anything to do with the climate there.
I went to Cleghorn Elementary School in Cleghorn, Wisconsin, and then to South Junior High School in Eau Claire, although from mid-October until early January of fifth grade (grade 5 for the Canucks out there), I went to Downsville Elementary School in Downsville, Wisconsin, and I went to Pepin High School in Pepin, Wisconsin for the first semester of 9th grade. (Incidentally, when I was going to Pepin HS, I was living near Lund, Wisconsin, about 2 miles from the girlhood home of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Every day on the way to school, I passed the park containing her real-life house described in Little House in the Big Woods.  I graduated June 6, 1990 from Eau Claire's Memorial High School. Unlike most people, apparently, I absolutely do not think High School was the best time of my life. One cool thing about High School tho, was the fact that the principal's office left us alone for the most part when we took over the lobby by the main auditorium every morning before school (sometimes as many as 40 of us), playing hackey sack...usually with koosh balls, in those days...
I went to UWEC off and on thereafter, finally getting a B.S. in Physics on May 22, 1998, after (sometimes serious) flirtations with Sociology, Geology and Cultural geography: Linguistics. I didn't go to commencement, as I had to work that day, at ShopKo's service desk, and didn't really regard my finally having graduated as much of an accomplishment (my GPA was only 2.44).
In July of 1999, I became manager of the shoe department at ShopKo #24 in Eau Claire, which meant, at that time, that I became an employee of J. Baker, Inc., a company that should rot in hell for the way they screwed over their employees and the chains that contracted with them. Oh wait. That's right, they went bankrupt. I guess annihilation is about the same thing as hell, except without the torment. Oh well. As that stupid country song says, "two outta three ain't bad"...
Payless Shoes took over JBI's ShopKo account in June of 2000, which meant I was either out of a job, (unless I was willing to accept the equivalent of anal rape from Payless, a store from which I will never buy a pair of shoes or even a pair of shoelaces as long as I live or) unless I went back to my service desk job at ShopKo. I was out of a job. Happily, I already had lined up a position at Honeywell, in the Advanced Circuits unit of their Electronic Materials division. Unfortunately, my brother, through whom I got the job, had made some enemies among the bigwigs, and so I was stuck in an unadvanceable position. When a layoff was offered in November of 2002, I took it happily. Greedily, you might say.
While working on my CS degree, and then for a year afterwards, I worked as the regulatory coördinator and biolab tech for a local veterinary pharmaceutical laboratory. Since June of 2007, I've been working as a data tech for IDEXX Computer Systems, a division of IDEXX Laboratories.
Other stuff about me
I have a mom and a dad.
I have 2 sisters and a brother, some cousins, nephews, grandparents, nieces, and various other relatives.
I'm a proud Jew.
I'm single and love it, but would also love to not be.
I'm just starting a relationship with a great girl who, if things work out alright, will be my wife come Sept. 2006. Well wishing is welcome, but gifts and financial contributions will be appreciated even more.
One of my fun little projects in high schools (besides inventing my own language) , was to invent a new orthography for English.
For the dialectologists, the way I speak English, "Atlantis" sounds like /ɛʔ·'læn nis/, "Toronto" sounds like /tɹ̩·'a no/ or /'tɹa·no/, and while "dentist" is usually /'dɛ·nɪst̚/, "dentists" is /'dɛ·nɪs:/ (not to be confused with "Dennis", which is /'dɛ·nɪs/).

- Comparative religion
- Comparative linguistics
- Star Trek, the various series (although I'm less than enthusiastic about Deep Space 9), as well as the movies
- Stargate, including Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis
- Good Will Hunting, mostly because I so strongly identify with Matt Damon in that film
- Europa, Europa
- Dead Poets Society (a movie because of which I will forever hate Robin Williams)
My closest friendships in the world are with Jordan, Munch and a few other great guys, more recently, Coot, Shneb, Lester and Milas, none of whom have any particular overriding interest in Wikimania.
- Mili Avital (the hottest actress ever)
- Arnold Schwarzenegger (and not only because I can spell his name w/o looking it up)
- Nicolas Cage I hate. He's a crappy actor and should go work in a gas station. I take that back. He probably can't even pump gas properly.
I honestly believe that people who believe that "communism works, it just hasn't been tried by the right people" are delusional.

“A wandering Aramean was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there, few in number; and he became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous. And the Egyptians dealt ill with us, and afflicted us, and laid upon us hard bondage. And we cried to the Lord, the God of our fathers, and the Lord heard our voice, and saw our affliction, and our toil, and our oppression. And the Lord brought us forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders. And He has brought us into this place, and has given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. And now, behold, I have brought the first of the fruit of the land, that You, O Lord, have given me.”
“'I have put away the hallowed things out of my house, and also have given them to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, according to Your commandment that You have commanded me; I have not transgressed any of Your commandments, neither have I forgotten them. I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I put away thereof, being unclean, nor given thereof for the dead; I have hearkened to the voice of the Lord my God, I have done according to all that You have commanded me. Look from Your holy habitation, from heaven, and bless Your people Israel, and the land that You have given us, as You swore to our fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey.”
Moses exhorted the Israelites to observe these laws faithfully with all their heart and soul, noting that they had affirmed that the Lord was their God, that they would walk in God’s ways, that they would observe Gods laws, and that they would obey God. And God affirmed that the Israelites were God’s treasured people, and that God would set them high above all the nations in fame and renown and glory, and that they would be a holy people to God.
Moses and the elders charged the people that as soon as they had crossed the Jordan River, they were to set up large stones on Mount Ebal, coat them with plaster, and inscribe on them all the words of the Torah most distinctly. There they were also to build an altar to God made of unhewn stones on which no iron tool had struck, and they were to offer on it burnt offerings to God and offerings of well-being and rejoice.
Moses and the priests told all Israel to hear: They had become the people of God, and should heed God and observe God’s commandments.
Moses charged the people that after they had crossed the Jordan, the tribes of Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin were to stand on Mount Gerizim when the blessings were spoken, and the tribes of Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphthali were to stand on Mount Ebal when the curses were spoken. The Levites were then loudly to curse anyone who: made a sculptured image, insulted father or mother, moved a fellow countryman’s landmark, misdirected a blind person, subverted the rights of the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, lay with his father’s wife, lay with any beast, lay with his sister, lay with his mother-in-law, struck down his fellow countryman in secret, accepted a bribe in the case of the murder of an innocent person, or otherwise would not observe the commandments; and for each curse all the people were to say, “Amen.”
On the other hand, if they obeyed God and observed faithfully all the commandments, then God would set them high above all the nations of the earth, bless them in the city and the country, bless the issue of their wombs, the produce of their soil, and the fertility of their herds and flocks, bless their basket and their kneading bowl, bless them in their comings and goings, rout their enemies, bless them upon their barns and all their undertakings, bless them in the land, establish them as God’s holy people, give them abounding prosperity, provide rain in season, and make them the head and not the tail.But if they did not obey God and observe faithfully the commandments, then God would curse them in the city and the country, curse their basket and kneading bowl, curse the issue of their womb, the produce of their soil, and the fertility of their herds and flocks, curse them in their comings and goings, loose on them calamity, panic, and frustration in all their enterprises, make pestilence cling to them, strike them with tuberculosis, fever, inflammation, scorching heat, drought, blight, and mildew, turn the skies to copper and the earth to iron, make the rain into dust, rout them before their enemies, strike them with the Egyptian inflammation, hemorrhoids, boil-scars, itch, madness, blindness, and dismay. If they paid the bride price for a wife, another man would enjoy her; if they built a house, they would not live in it; if they planted a vineyard, they would not harvest it. oxen would be slaughtered before their eyes, but they would not eat of it; their ass would be seized and not returned; their flock would be delivered to their enemies; their sons and daughters would be delivered to another people; a people they did not know would eat up the produce of their soil and all their gains; they would be abused and downtrodden continually, until they were driven mad; God would afflict them at the knees and thighs with a severe inflammation; God would drive them to an unknown nation where they would serve other gods, of wood and stone; and they would be a consternation, a proverb, and a byword among all the peoples. Locusts would consume their seed, worms would devour their vineyards, the olives would drop off their olive trees, their sons and daughters would go into captivity, the cricket would take over all the trees and produce of their land, the stranger in their midst would rise above them, the stranger would be their creditor, and the stranger would be the head and they the tail. hunger and thirst, naked and lacking everything, the enemies whom God would let loose against them. God would bring against them a ruthless nation from afar, whose language they would not understand, to devour their cattle and produce of their soil and to shut them up in their towns until every mighty wall in which they trusted had come down. And when they were shut up under siege, they would eat the flesh of their sons and daughters. God would inflict extraordinary plagues and diseases on them until they would have a scant few left, for as God once delighted in making them prosperous and many, so would God delight in causing them to perish and diminish. God would scatter them among all the peoples from one end of the earth to the other, but even among those nations they would find no place to rest. In the morning they would say, “If only it were evening!” and in the evening they would say, “If only it were morning!” God would send them back to Egypt in galleys and they would offer themselves for sale as slaves, but none would buy.
Moses reminded the Israelites that they had seen all that God did to Pharaoh and Egypt, yet they did not yet understand. Moses led them through the wilderness 40 years, their clothes and sandals did not wear out, and they survived without bread to eat and wine to drink so that they might know that the Lord was their God. They defeated King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan, took their land, and gave it to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh. Therefore Moses urged them to observe faithfully all the commandments, that they might succeed in all that they undertook.
