Gafni, until you move we will already be starting to count your second set of 40 years..
And in conclusion, strive to be like Aryeh Deri who has implemented the Norwegian Law, while by you it is still delayed, seemingly from fear of who will get the credit!
Have a pleasant race!
-- MK Yigal Gueta (Shas)
Gueta, recently sworn in as MK when Shas implemented the Norwegian Law, has shown his loyalty to Deri. Deri can't kvetch too much about people supposedly trying to take the credit from him for various achievements, but Gueta has taken it upon himself to talk up for him.
Looks like the MKs know a thing or two about running marathons, based on his analogy..

How would you react if someone mistakenly gave you more money than they intended? This social experiment captures Israelis' reactions when stopped by a "blind" man asking for help changing cash.You have to watch this! This is my Israel!

Maariv is reporting about a divorce case in the beis din of Haifa in which an unusual request was made.
Unfortunately, after just a few years of marriage the couple decided to divorce. They went to divorce court and the husband claimed that the wife had hidden a lot of money. The beis din instructed him to prepare two lists of value of items in the marriage, and she would choose one of the lists for the purpose of the division of assets.
It sounds like the husband was fine with that, but he threw in an additional condition that had the judges rubbing their eyes in bewilderment. He informed them that for their wedding he had purchased two wedding dresses for his wife-to-be. She obviously only wore one of the dresses and he was demanding that the second dress be returned to him.
The beis din ended up agreeing to his demand and said as part of the settlement he must be awarded one of the dresses.
What was she planning on doing with two wedding dresses? Why didn't they return one after she settled the other to be worn at the wedding? And what does he want specifically the dress for now? Why not demand the value of the dress?

This is funny. Hamas in Gaza claimed that they had successfully built a tank, made in part from components of old IDF equipment and tank parts they have captured over time. They even had it out on display for everyone to see and be proud of them..
Unfortunately for them, or fortunately, they turned themselves into a laughing stock. The fact that it was not a tank but some sort of prop made at least partially out of wood and even driving on regular wheels under the tank treads. This wouldn't even need an anti-tank missile to knock it out of commission - just a traffic light.
Here is the clip of their proud display:
