How many pronounceable permutations?

(How long did it take you to write the code to spit those out?)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Maybe he's an avid spelling bee player and spat it out himself in 8 seconds.

Lol I've needed to generate permutations enough times in the past that I have pre-written code for it.

I didn't think you wrote it now. But at some point it must have taken a few minutes.

Isn't this the next piece one writes in a new language after "hello world"?

Apparently in Israel there are different depreciation schedules almost on an item by item basis. MKs arguing that cell phones should get close to 50% annual depreciation rate. In the meantime they quoted various rates CURRENTLY on the books: Horses 10%, donkeys 8.5%, etc.

Quite a scary voicenote to get, thank goodness he responded quickly.

This is crazy
Updated statement
The Rohr Chabad Jewish Student Center at Texas A&M is open to all Jewish faculty and students to explore Judaism. 

In 2018 a student presenting himself as Eliyah Haliwa began visiting Chabad along with other local campus Jewish institutions (including serving as president at one of them). He would occasionally attend Shabbat meals at Chabad, and infrequently attended the services or Torah classes.

Last year he met a woman from N.Y. on a Jewish dating website.
He falsely presented himself to her as observant. When asked by the woman and her family, I informed them that his conduct did not reflect that of a fully observant Jew.

The fundamental responsibility of the officiating rabbi at a wedding, the mesader kiddushin, is to determine the Jewish status [birur hayahadut] of the couple  and ensure that they are both Jewish, single and allowed to marry each other in accordance with Jewish law.

Accordingly, when Rabbi Ezra Zafrani, a respected Syrian rabbi in Lakewood, N.J., asked me if Eliyah was Jewish, I explicitly informed him that I did not know and that whoever was officiating would need to do a proper birur and would need to independently confirm his Jewish status.

The wedding itself was officiated by Rabbi Zafraniís son, Rabbi David Zafrani. As my wife and I were in New York for other reasons, Rabbi David Zafrani, who was officiating in place of his father, and his wife, asked us to join the wedding. As the groom had no family attending, at the request of the couple and the Zafranis, we walked him down the aisle and I signed the ketubah, which had been drafted by Rabbi Ezra Zafrani. We were not officiating and our involvement was predicated on the understanding that, as supervising rabbis, Ezra and David Zafrani had done their due diligence to confirm the groomís Jewish status. 

In the ensuing weeks, it has come to light that the bride was aware that Eliyah was using a false name, information he concealed from others, when she learned of his Muslim name. We were clearly misled about his identity. Our hearts go out to this woman, her family and everyone else deceived by this individual here in Texas and in New York and New Jersey.
