Count on Me!

I’ve written about gematria before here, so I really shouldn’t have to explain it to you again. But since there might be one or two new readers out there I’m going to do it anyway. Basically, it’s a way of using the Hebrew alphabet to assign a word a certain numerical value and then believing that all words with the same numerical value are somehow connected, or share common qualities or whatever.

Some of you might find it less than convincing, but if you want to try it, I recommend a site I recently discovered called Khochmat Hagimatriyah. Here, you can type in any word and see what other words or phrases share the same numerical value.

I typed in my own name — מיכאל טוסבאינן — and these were some of the results I got:

מבין באופנה גדול

חי בסרט

?מי כאן אוהב פסטה

סקס באמבטיה

אידיוט גמור

and my personal favorite:

גבלס צדק

Convinced? Those of you who find these findings inconclusive, can try for yourselves here.

    According to the site, my name equals:
    “big fashion expert”
    “fooling himself”
    “who here likes pasta?”
    “sex in the bathroom”
    “complete idiot”
    “goebbles was right”

    your name equals:
    “obama is really dark”
    “i’m already wet”
    “let’s go to bed”
    “what’s up?”
    “small pleasures”
    “complete fiasco”

    you be the judge…

    Fair enough, it all makes complete sense know. I feel so fulfilled, it is kind of like reading my astrology prediction in the paper.
