12-6-2012 A few thousand years later : Oops instead of Efes
We all now and then come across the word Oops if the browser is stuck [firefox,chrome etc]................. compare : Efes with Oops
If you look for the definition of "Oops" then you find the sentence as copied below
Defenition of Oops: that was wrong, we shouldn’t have done that
In this parshat ha-shavua we meet the very famous expression: efes etc.............. something like: lo shave! , for naught, nothing
worth, zero!! [dutch: waardeloos]
The Ramban remarks here that this keyword EFES shows a lack of faith, that it was all nothing worth : after the spies [meraglim]
first stated how good and rich the Land was they added : EFES
If I interpret things well then maybe we are doing teshuva [repentence], beginning with Google who just does not announce only
Oops [efes] but admits: that was wrong, we shouldn’t have done that.
Don't forget: Google started with 2 Jews.................
Who claims that the Internet is so bad.....?
Oops, that was wrong, we shouldn’t have done that
