Better To Be A Flea On A Lion Than The Leader Of Mice

From my live cam chat:

guest27:  Hey Luke, I saw your video on why you converted to Judaism and chose Orthodoxy. I converted to non-Orthodox Judaism myself but I am seriously considering an Orthodox conversion because it also seems like the most authentic branch to me.
guest27:  How long did it take you to convert?
YourMoralLeader:  two years
YourMoralLeader:  you should
guest27:  that would not be considered such a long time in Holland where I live
guest27:  It’s really hard here ( even for Orthodox standards) because there are hardly any Jews here anymore
guest27:  I’m actually strugling because I’m studying Hebrew now (University of Amsterdam) and I am trying to make up my mind wether I should become Orthodox or become a non-Orthodox rabbi which also seems interesting.
YourMoralLeader:  better to be a flea on a lion than the leader of mice!
guest27:  hahaha supose thats true
guest27:  but it would mean I would have to go trough the whole process again and that seems realy discouraging
YourMoralLeader:  yeah, why not move to israel?
guest27:  I’ve been thinking about it and it’s probably a good idea just a realy big step, leaving everything behind.
guest27:  But like Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin say ‘Just like a Norwegian can live the most authentic Norwegian life in Norway a Jew can live the most authentic Jewish life in Israel.’
BlackHatBennie:  Do you own a black hat?
YourMoralLeader:  how old are you 27? how much do you love holland?
YourMoralLeader:  no
BlackHatBennie:  It would be a good look for you.  A nice modern orthodox black hat
YourMoralLeader:  Thank you, maybe I will
BlackHatBennie:  And dark sun glasses.
BlackHatBennie:  Like the Blues Brothers.
BlackHatBennie:  YML has had NUMEROUS opportunities to make the necessary sacrifice for his team, but has declined.
BlackHatBennie:  Instead, he hordes his semen to himself, content to see it wash down the drain of life, when it might otherwise be used to inseminate Jewish women to make Jewish babies.
BlackHatBennie:  Luke, why do you hate Jewish babies so that you bend over backwards to prevent their conception?
guest27:  that is pretty low dude
BlackHatBennie:  G27, I am Luke’s conscience
BlackHatBennie:  I write what he thinks, or what he will be thinking
Chaim:  I thaught that was the Torah?
BlackHatBennie:  There are many rooms in Luke’s house, if not his hovel
BlackHatBennie:  There is one room  for Torah, another for Christian music, one for his weird non-Jewish diet, one for Jewesses (sees little action), one for gentiles, one for porn, one for bloggers, one for writers.
BlackHatBennie:  I oversee all of them.
BlackHatBennie:  In my black hat.
YourMoralLeader:  lifelong vegie
guest30:  that is why you do not have the strength to have the american gangster sex
guest30:  you must start eating meat to have the energy for hoisting the women
BlackHatBennie:  Norman Mailer: ate meat, married 8 times, had lots of kids, successful writer.  Luke Ford: blogger and no to all the rest
BlackHatBennie:  Wouldn’t it be something if Luke led his entire flock to make aliyah to Israel?
BlackHatBennie:  They could move to the Negev
BlackHatBennie:  And establish a compound
