the daily purge 6-2-16

Yay for calculators! This machine helps you with your gazintas and gazoutas. Need to know how many pennies it takes to make a dollar? Enter ‘100’ then divide by ‘1’. Need to calculate a tip on your $3.00 cheese sandwich lunch at 12.5%? No problem. Just dine, dash and save a cool $3.38 (rounded up, of course). The first known use of a “counting machine” was a set of bones. How they were used has been lost to history but suffice it to say if you ever needed to count 216 of anything, it made sense to invite an unwelcome neighbor over for dinner, if you know what I mean.

Not Biblical but kabbalistic, the number 216 is the number value for the word “vanity”, as in Ecclesiastes 1:1

Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

Is it any wonder that it is a human who needs ‘vanity’ to make himself about the earth?

Proverbs 16:28  A dishonest man spreads strife, and a whisperer separates close friends.
