And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech … And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower , whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name , lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children built. And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth:
“ Our Rabbis taught: There shall not be found among … a charmer . 15 This applies to one who charms large objects, and to one who charms small ones, 16 even snakes and scorpions.

“ His limbs were in proportion, and I had selected his features as beautiful. Beautiful! – Great God! His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid constrast with his watery eyes , that seemed almost of the same colour as the dun-white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion and straight black lips”
“ Miss Plastic Hungary” … a contest designed to encourage plastic surgery.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Tamas Rozsos said the pageant also meant to show that cosmetic corrections did not necessarily have to be about oversized breasts, bulbous lips and skin stretched to near tearing point. “ This about restoring harmony … eliminating asymmetries and giving women the opportunity to have normal features,” Rozsos said. “Plastic surgery has a bad reputation in Hungary but its mostly due to the exaggerations .” Associated Press
