This week by the numbers

Quick roundup of this week...by the numbers..

$250,000,000
That's how much an English Football player is getting paid for 5 years of crossing the pond and learning how to say S-O-C-C-E-R.
Yes that's Two Hundred and Fifty Million Dollars.
To put things into perspective..that's double what A-Rod is getting...while playing a sport that ranks somewhere between lacrosse and curling in this country.

34,000
Thats how many Iraqi civilians were killed in 2006. Staggering amount.
To put things into perspective..If you add up all the wars Israel has fought since 1948 including all soldiers and civilians in terrorist attacks ..the number is right around 20,000.
not comparing situations..just putting a number into perpective...calm down

1/8
Thats how many inches of snow we've accumulated to date on my back porch. I never thought I'd see the day when my kids would be up squealing at the window at 1/8 of an inch of wet slush.
To put things into perspective my fingernail is 1/2 an inch long.

Oh..and did I mention its January 19th..?

Thats it..for now

Good Shabbos
