A jew, a universal genius, and headed for Israel!

Mazal tov to Yehoshua Torbjörn, who won a two day traveling contest. I simply couldn't resist posting this newpaper clip of him, and translating bits of it:


"Last night the winner of the two day travel-chance quiz was determined. During 45 minutes the 10 contestants were made to answer questions from different Americans presidents, to the names of the capitals of Switzerland and Croatia, and the winner was Torbjörn Karfunkel, age 35. He had no doubts about how the prize should be spent: "It will be a trip to Israel, I haven't been there in 23 years".

Like I've said to Torbjörn himself already (who won shitloads of cash on "Who wants to be a millionaire" a few years back), it pays off to be, like, incredibly smart! Since he is the manifestation of modesty, he answered back saying "well it pays off being well informed".
