+Now for the finale. This video is without commercials or any other annoying

+- do almost what you want with it, just say that "I Was Here"
+( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i41qWJ6QjPI ), and as of now I am still here,
+and I am planning to remain here, hopefully indefinetely (more about
+it later). However, this is something I want as an agreement among two
+gentlemen (or among a gentleman and a lady), and I have much better things
+to do with my time than to go and hunt down people who did not properly
+attribute me. And like the great character of
+http://kungfupanda.wikia.com/wiki/Po from Kung Fu Panda, or the earlier
+and non-fictional character of Saladin, I don't hold
+grudges against people who have violated that, because I know that “an
+eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”.
+
+Now, remember that when it comes to humans, life is the antithesis of death.
+In the Bible, Yonah is disappointed that his prophecy that Ninveh the great
+city did not come true, and God tells him that if he spared the life of a
+nice shrub, why shouldn't he spare the life of the many inhabitants of
+Ninveh?
+
+I would really love to believe that there is an after-life and like I mention
+in my screenplay Star Trek: “We, the Living Dead” (
+http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/Star-Trek/We-the-Living-Dead/ ) that there
+are guilds of conscious organisms that saves people after they die, but can
+I really take a chance? Like the Hadith tells about Muhammad’s advice,
+you should not leave your camel untied when you go to pray because
+God helps them that helps themselves (see
+http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_helps_those_who_help_themselves ). For all
+I know, my death may be final, and dropping an atomic bomb on Tel Aviv or
+Seoul, or San Fransisco, or wherever will permanently destroy the lives of
+millions of innocent, happy, productive, people who will no longer be able
+to live forever - mind, body, and soul, and many of them would be muslim,
+or koreans.
+
+But there's another way: life. And one important aspect of life is music. So
+addressing:
+
+* The prime minister of Israel.
+
+* The president of Iran.
+
+* The leader of North Korea.
+
+What are your favourite songs? Just mention them, and I want to see YouTube
+and beyond filled with their awesome covers, remixes, parodies, live
+performances, translations, interpretations, and in general - the voice of
+life.
+
+No, there is not going to be a contest of who gets the most views. I wasn't
+the top of the class in my high school or in my B.Sc. studies in the Technion,
+and I don't care, because I have a really great web site and a wonderful web
+presence, and I constantly improve it and myself. Similarly,
+http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Michelle_Gellar never won a beauty contest,
+and was extremely unlikely to win one, yet because of her role playing
+Buffy in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer_(TV_series)
+she became the "it" girl of the late 90s, and ruled the early web, supreme.
+Even I was heavily infatuated with her, and she will always have a sweet spot
+in my heart.
+
+Remember, it’s always - publish or perish - if you don't share what you know
+and like, then you die a little, and then a lot, and if you stop publishing,
+then people will not remember you, which is worse if you say or act stupidly.
+I am planning on never stopping to publish as long as I am capable of that.
+
+And like I said, the only answer to the question "Who is the most powerful
+man (or woman) on Earth?" is "I am.", and you'd better start thinking that
+you are the Messiah and act like one - whether you are male or female, Jew
+or non-Jew, because either you are a superheroic person or you'll end up dead.

+
+Well, anyway, please check out my homepage - http://www.shlomifish.org/ - and
+there's
+a lot of short and zany stuff to read there too like
+“factoids” about Chuck Norris, Larry Wall, Xena the Warrior Princess,
+Buffy, and also inanimate things such as XSLT and the NSA:
+
+* http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/bits/facts/
+
+And I also have aphorisms - http://www.shlomifish.org/humour.html and
+collections of quotes - IRC/chat conversations etc:
+
+* http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/fortunes/
+
+I also have some blogs, a twitter feed - http://twitter.com/shlomif and
+a Wiki at Wikia - http://shlomif.wikia.com/wiki/Shlomi_Fish_Wiki , which
+you can fill with translations and suggestions and hacks and links and what
+not.
+
+Cheers everybody, and may life conquer death.
+
