I always carry a box of Kleenex when I shoot black powder. It makes me sneeze.

I see the "Evil Eye", or being greedy, but what is kuf-yud-yud-nun?

Keyn or kein or however you want to transliterate it...Yiddish for "no", roughly, so = "no evil eye".

I have been trying to learn modern Hebrew, but you start tossing Yiddish in there and I get lost. I was sounding it out and heard "kein", but didn't connect it in my brain to German, which would have got me there.
