And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; and also, behold, ...

Re: Observations of the Random sort

There's maybe only a dozen subreddits I subscribe to, but of those, I can't tell who posts more pictures, r/guns or r/breaddit. Folks really like to show off their bangers and baguettes.
