 <h3>Favourite Sitcoms</h3>
 
-<h4>No. 1: Friends</h4>
+<h4>International</h4>
+
+<h5>No. 1: Friends</h5>
 
 <p>
 "Friends" is simply amazing and by far the funniest sitcom I ever seen. I think
 hurts just recalling it.
 </p>
 
-<h4>Runner Ups</h4>
+<h5>Runner Ups</h5>
 
 <ul>
 <li>
 well, but not as much as Clarissa, IMHO.

-
+"Student Bodies" - quite similar in spirit to Clarissa. A high school
+in America in a relatively uninteresting town, and a really whacky newspaper 
+crew writing an underground school paper. The cartoons in the middle are
+an especially nice edge.
 </li>
 </ul>
+
+<h4>Israeli</h4>
+
+<h5>No. 1: "Hatzi Hamenasheh" (the half of the Menasheh tribe)</h5>
+
+<p>
+A show about biblical times without too much realism to it and lots of insights
+from the future. This thing is so funny from an Israeli POV, but I don't know
+how much foreign people will understand it. I think it's even funnier than
+Friends, because it applies to me as an Israeli.
+</p>
+
+<h5>Runner-ups</h5>
+
+<ul>
+<li>
+"Qrovim Qrovim" - (close relatives) - a story about a few interlaced families
+living next door to each other. A bit old, but still as funny as ever. This
+is a more traditional sitcom, but very nice.
+</li>
+<li>
+"The Big Restaurant" - a middle-eastern Israeli restaurant with some 
+completely insane workers, who are desperately trying to hide their insanity
+from its patrons. (sometimes without too much success) Despite being mostly
+in Arabic (but also in Hebrew, English and French), this show was something
+that got my family and I hooked every Saturday's Evening. 
+</li>
+</ul>

+<h2>Books</h2>

+Little Women / Louisa May Alcott
+</dt>
+<dd>
+A very entertaining book albeit a little preachy. I was amazed at how 
+modern the English felt like. One of the books I have most enjoyed reading.
+</dd>
+<dt>
+The Fountainhead / Ayn Rand
+</dt>
+<dd>
+I became an Objectivist a long time before reading this book, and decided to
+read it to see what all the hype was about. I was not disappointed. It is one
+of the most powerful books I have read.

 I am enjoying my studies as much as academic studies can be enjoyed. (and trust 
 me, they can't be enjoyed very much). In any case, I feel that I deepend my 
 understanding of computers and electronics because of them. The Technion gives

+his students a high level of studying, but my main problem with it is that its
 tests are sometimes completely out of sync with the material that is learned,
 and so students receive low grades and are frustrated. This is especially 
 demotivating considering the fact that studying there is <b>a lot of work</b>
