There Was A Lake in Palesti

There Was a Lake in Palestine (O Zion, save yourself) 

It feels like home here - it looks like Texas. 

"Again if, as is fabled, there is a lake in Palestine, such that if you bind a man or beast and throw it in it floats and does not sink, this would bear out what we have said. They say that this lake is so bitter and salty that no fish live in it and that if you soak clothes in it and shake them it cleans them."

- Aristotle, Meteorology
