My Linux is a Jewish Stallion

Okay, so I don't pronounce SUSE correctly. It's not really a word, however, and the Germans who came up with it use a pronunciation unfamiliar to American English, so I think I'm okay saying "soos". After all, it sounds better than some of the other pronunciations ("suzi" or "suze") IMHO.

Anyway, I'm teaching myself Biblical Hebrew. The noun I learned today is samech shurek samech, S-U-S, or "soos". It means "horse" (specifically a male horse).

So if you ever hear me saying something like "I've gotta get back on the horse" or "SUSE is chomping on the bit" you'll know what I'm talking about.
