El Malei Rachamim, (God of compassion), is a prayer recited during Jewish funerals, as well as on occasions of remembrance of the deceased: Memorial Day both in the US and Israel, Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the anniversary of the death of a loved one. There isn’t a version specific to US Memorial Day, but it’s suitable for today in its traditional form. It’s also customary to light a twenty-four hour memorial candle and to give charity on behalf of the deceased. I hope all of you have had a meaningful Memorial Day, and here is the translation of the prayer for both men and women, as well as a chanted version. The chanted version is by the IDF cantor, Shai Abramson.

Wil and Denise ate onion rings yesterday and Wil has been paying the price ever since thanks to Denise’s SBD weapons of mass destruction. We’ve decided she should be the one to go to North Korea because she’d be able to get them to stand down without much work.
Six to one Braves versus Red Socks, beers over Facetime with Wil and Denise, and happy fifteenth birthday WordPress. Today is a good day.

If you ask me, Generation X acts more entitled than millennials ever could. We’re the ones who handed out participation trophies like it was going out of style, only to then shit on millennials for being exactly what we taught them to be.
So Amazon is selling a real-time facial recognition system to police departments. I’d be willing to lay odds on it working with at least their Key service. You know, the one where you can have Amazon drop off packages in your house while you’re otherwise occupied.
School shooting social media is a raging dumpster fire, and this time is no different.
