We are GOD'S Gas Station

GOD created the World and Us to be his GAS STATION. Our SOULS are His FUEL. This is so HE and His CREW can travel thru the Universe and spread God's seed. We will eventually become members of His CREW. That's our reward. "Yes", me, you, and everyone on Earth are a 1/2 Gallon of Gas trying to be FULL GALLON!

The choice of analogy of a professor being complemented by a ''lowly', inevitably ignorant, low IQ janitor is an unfortunate one. There are individuals of very high intellectual capacity who, for reasons unknown to us, end up in occupations not commensurate with their potential. To make such a dismissive and derogatory assumption is not in the spirit of Judaism. Please, reconsider.
