No one. Elijah is likely a fictional figure, created to give the dejected post-exilic Jewish people both a moral and literal history. By giving Elijah "prophetic" powers, he falls under the realm of mythic speech, painting anyone who questions it as treasonous / blasphemous. That is precisely what the post-exilic rulers of Israel wanted--unquestioning loyalty.

Real lemon juice is too sour for most people and is so acidic that it can contribute to tooth decay (although it is good for liver detoxification). The artificial flavoring tones it down a bit, making it more tolerable for mass consumption.

However, it is a fantastic natural detergent, and we don't have to worry about tooth decay on our clothing, now do we?

It depends on the potency of your saliva, which is variable, depending on the person.

The twentieth century and the present, actually, fascinate me the most, mostly because I enjoy how much history is romanticized and construed for personal gains.

I'm terribly curious as to what will happen next...

I like U2, mostly because I enjoyed the experimental qualities of the band, and that even includes 1980s U2. I mean, there are few bands whose 1980s work still sound relevant to today, don't you think?

Needless to say, ATYCLB bored me to tears, even though I can find enjoyment in the album.

Well, at least we agree on the first two words of your response.
