Nerd! I'm still using my Olivetti Programa 101. No need for a new fangled display. Adding machine paper roll is all you need - but it is getting hard to find typewriter ribbons.

Re: It's a shit-hole
Speaking as a British born Israeli I can speak with more authority than most of the twerps commenting here.
I much prefer the forthright say-what-you mean attitude of Israelis (a.k.a. rudeness to some people) that the totally insincere politeness of Brits. Its only rude if you take offence and my fellow Israelis certainly don't take offence just because someone says what he means.
When a Brit politely asks after your health you can be sure he doesn't give a shit and is just going through the motions. When an Israeli asks he really wants to know and will offer plenty of free advice as how to improve it. If you get offended and call it chutzpah, well poor you.
Finally regarding the last point. You mean we aren't the chosen people? Now I'm offended.
British tax money to Israel? Please quote when and how much
Speed Camera Sign - geddit?
Most road speed camera signs around the world have a Hasslebad profile on them, totally foreign to most people under the age 50, or thereabouts.
Sadly, in spite of my valuable contribution to todays history and road safety lessons, I can't afford one.
