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.

Response to Julia Estrin of 26Apr2018

Dear Julia,
Thanks for pointing out the insensitive comparison of the "lowly" janitor... While getting my Bachelor's of Science in Aviation Administration in a work-study program (earning extra credit and substituting theoretical classes for working in the field of the career one has chosen) one of the tasks I had to do included janitorial types of duties as a ramp agent at LAX and was ridiculed for being smart, and enrolled in a course of study that was highly intellectual, at University, while performing such a "lowly" part time job... I was drugged by coworkers and laughed at and felt totally out of place... Intelligence is not measured by ones occupation (fortunately!) I don't think the example, in this case, was meant to be poking fun at this janitor, though, the way I was mistreated on the job...
