    Weird. Didn’t know that about eye color though.

    It’d be weird to look into a mirror and see blue eyes staring back, though.Report

      If I wanted to become Jewish, how difficult would it be?

      Is there an operation I could undergo?Report

        Jaybird, the answer it depends but the process of becoming Jewish is usually fairly difficult for a variety of theological and sociological reasons. Theologically, Jews saw no needs in making gentiles Jewish because ideas about life after death were fuzzy at best and it was generally assumed that God wouldn’t punish gentiles for being gentiles. He created them to. Therefore, the Rabbis adopted stringent standards for conversion during Talmudic times. A gentile who wanted to become a Jew most not have mecurial aims, including wanting to marry a Jew, must accept the “yoke of heaven” and agree to follow all the laws of the Torah, have a ritual immesion in a mikveh, and if a man get circumicized.Report

        But I thought you shouldn’t convert just for the yokes….

        I have put a bit of thought into this, as I too have considered converting to Judaism.
        First of all, I would like to kill the baby Jesus. Secondly, I am already circumcised.
        So, I’ve got the two biggies out of the way . . .

        It’s the beard.
        I have difficulty getting a decent goatee going.
        And there are at least seven different colors of hair in my beard. In fact, it might be half an inch over or more until another hair of the same color occurs.

        Maybe there’s a Reform movement somewhere that would allow falsies.Report

        you don’t need a beard to be Jewish.
        (I think even Muslims have it as “recommended” simply because Mohammed wore one).

        I should like to see a picture of said multicolored beard.Report
