Like any tornado that gathers energy when over the ocean but blows itself
out when over
  land so will the subjects that come up.
    They will live as long as we will keep them alive.
      They will die from natural causes.
         Only to flare up some time ahead, triggered off by some accidental
      We already had these Yiddish flare ups several times in the past.
       If they bore , veer off subject - they will soon expire.
         Just let things happen naturally - this is the best way.
