+<!-- TITLE=New on Shlomi Fish’s Homepage: Summerschool at the NSA the screenplay + New Factoids-->
+<p>
+Here are the recent updates for <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/">Shlomi
+Fish’s Homepage</a>. This time, the highlight is some interesting new
+content.
+</p>

+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/Summerschool-at-the-NSA/"><i>Summerschool
+        at the NSA</i></a>, subtitled “As the
+sling shoots, grown-up men will sob”, is a screenplay, which I completed and
+is in a usable condition. The Hollywood
+actresses Sarah Michelle Gellar (of Buffy fame) and Summer Glau (of xkcd
+notability) conspire to kick the ass of the NSA (= the United States
+government’s National Security Agency), while using special warfare
+that is completely non-violent:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+<p> [ Black screen, SMG’s (= Sarah Michelle Gellar’s) voice, while emulating her daughter.  ]
+</p>
+<p><strong>SMG:</strong> Humpty dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty dumpty had a great fall. And all the
+King's horses, and all the King's men could not put Humpty together again.
+</p>
+<p>
+[

+</p>
+<p><strong>SGlau:</strong> <span>[Stops laughing.]</span> Oh my God, Sarah, your daughter’s so smart.
+</p>
+<p><strong>SMG:</strong> And… funny!
+</p>
+<p><strong>SGlau:</strong> Yes. Well, what does she like aside from <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_Goose">Mother Goose</a>?
+</p>
+<p><strong>SMG:</strong> Oh, she loves <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Little_Pony:_Friendship_Is_Magic"><em>My Little Pony</em></a>. She and I watch it almost every week
+together.
+</p>
+<p><strong>SGlau:</strong> Wow, you're a pega-sister, too?
+</p>
+<p><strong>SMG:</strong> I'm not addicted to <em>My Little Pony</em>. I swear! I can quit any time.
+Just let me watch one… more… episode. <span>[giggles]</span></p>
+<p><strong>SGlau:</strong> Hah, hah. For your information, my My Little Pony addicts’ support group
+meets every second and fourth Saturday of the month, and I am currently at step
+five of our twelve step program.
+</p>
+<p><strong>SMG:</strong> Sounds like a plan. I'll consider joining.

+There are brand new factoids page of
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/bits/facts/Clarissa/">Clarissa
+    Darling Facts</a> (from the old Television show
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clarissa_Explains_It_All"><i>Clarissa
+        Explains It All</i></a>) as well as new Buffy facts and Chuck Norris
+facts in the <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/bits/facts/">factoids
+collection</a>:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>
+Tomorrow never dies, unless <b>Chuck Norris</b> volunteers to take it out of its
+misery.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+The Chuck Norris of the Buffyverse, has been secretly training under
+<b>Buffy</b>’s supervision, and so far - lost every battle with her.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+<b>Clarissa Darling</b> can start from “I think therefore I am” and prove
+that the
+grass is green, that there are about 365 days in a year, and that Isaac Newton
+formulated the Law of Gravitation back in 1687.
+</p>
+</li>

+I added a page about <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/me/rindolf/">my
+    nickname, “Rindolf”</a> and its etymlogy, as well as about
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/me/rindolf/#rindolfism">Rindolfism,
+which is my philosophy</a>.

+<p>
+There are some new quotes in the
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/fortunes/">UNIX-like fortune cookies’ collections</a>:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+<p>
+I recall discussing Buffy with a Jewish American friend,
+who used to be secular, and now has become an observant
+Jew, and married a woman who properly converted to
+Orthodox Judaism, and they have some children. We
+discussed the fact
+that Sarah Michelle Gellar was Jewish, and yet that many
+men (and some Lesbian women) were more attracted to Alyson
+Hannigan’s character, Willow Rosenberg, who was a shy and
+sheepish, redhead, Jewess. Then when I mentioned that
+Hannigan was only a maternal Jew, he said she is “kosher”
+(because someone whose mother is Jewish and who did not
+convert to a different religion, is a bona-fide Jew). I
+found it amusing that you refer to women by the same word
+as you do to food, but I think the ancient Hebrew word
+"kasher" also means "approved", "appropriate", "legal",
+etc.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+In any case, both Hannigan and Gellar are now married,
+and so trying to separate between them and their husbands
+is not kosher. ;-)

+Finally, the main navigation menu sports a new and more usable CSS style thanks
