Oh Shreck!: You must envelope yourself in the search for truth. There is a genetic component as well, but the only way to find out if it’s genetically possible to be as smart as me is to set out to find the truth.

Which seminary should I send my daughter to?
As other people have observed, it is seminary application season and I am hoping that you can help me find the perfect seminary in EY for my daughter.
I am not looking for a place that is super academic. My daughter is not going to become a professor of Ramban when she comes back to the US. I want a place that is friendly, goes on lots of tours, and has the kind of girls that are comfortable sharing frozen yogurt even if they have a paper due next week.
Also, I don’t think it would be batampte for my daughter to go to a out of town, slow moving seminary with girls who are so comfortable and friendly that they have no standards. My daughter is very fashion conscious and she understands the importance of being proper and put together. She also appreciates the finer things in life and her lifestyle might make people with different tastes jealous.
If you have any suggestions, let me know. I am not concerned with her being able to get in to any seminary, because once she chooses, I am confident that I know the right people to call and make sure that we can work it out.
I gave you the background so that a reader will understand the wisdom of your response, but I’m sure you knew it already.October 15, 2013 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #1215150
Bookworm: One part lemon juice, two parts water. Brush gently with plain steel wool, then rinse with water.
Wolfish Musings: That question is unclear. Do you mean why do *we* do it and others don’t? Do you mean it as two separate questions – “Why do we drive on a parkway?” and “Why do we park in a driveway?” If so, we drive on a parkway because it is the fastest route to the bar mitzvah. We park in the driveway because it is the closest place to the front door, and although there are a few spots on the street, we are not sure if the meters are in effect today, and the only thing worse than paying for parking when the meters are in effect is paying for parking when the meters are not in effect. If you are referring to the seeming incongruity of the verbs and the nouns, it is the result of linguistic development that I can go into in a later post if that was what you meant.
Oomis, PLEASE DO NOT INSERT IDENTIFYING INFORMATION. IF YOU DO THIS AGAIN YOU WILL BE BANNED.
Daas Yochid: Posters who ask questions like that are not looking for the one correct answer; they are engaging in discourse that has value as part of the seminary experience. The one right answer, BTW, is B’nos Chava.October 15, 2013 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #1215151This name is already takenParticipant

Why does grape flavor smell the way it is when actual grapes don’t taste or smell anything like it?October 16, 2013 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1215156Shopping613 🌠Participant
Why does everything grape-flavored taste like medicine?October 16, 2013 2:17 pm at 2:17 pm #1215157
HLM: That’s the taste of the purple coloring. If you could remove the coloring, the flavor would taste exactly like grapes.
Shopping613: See the answer to HLM. Many colorings taste the same, so the colorings used in medicine make it taste similar to “grape flavor”.October 16, 2013 3:20 pm at 3:20 pm #1215158streekgeekParticipant

Yserbius, I’m not sure what you mean by convert. The Agent Based model will not do everything that the System Dynamic model would. If you mean incorporating Agent Based modeling, unless you are dealing with modeling that is both straightforward and abstract, Agent Based modeling can expand your analytical framework significantly.
If you choose to incorporate Agent Based modelng, you should start with AnyLogic, or else you’ll be switching again in a few years, if you’re working with anything more complicated than school assignments.October 16, 2013 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #1215166
Popship, I am loathe to answer this question since I feel that you’re testing me more than seeking information. Nevertheless, briefly, special relativity is more concerned with the physics of speed, while general relativity is more concerned with the physics of mass. Of course, at a certain level of application, they blend into the same thing.October 16, 2013 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #1215167
Bookworm, depending on how I construe the question the answer could differ.
A tardis cannot be actually bigger on the inside – it would only appear to be bigger, based on the way that the different perspectives react to measurement interfaces (including sight).
It appears bigger because such quirks are classic science fiction tropes.October 16, 2013 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #1215168strawberryMember

Strawberry, you will get into school by next May. Your wedding will be next November. It would be wrong for me to disclose the other two.October 16, 2013 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #1215174
Sanityisoverrated – sorry I didn’t mean to skip it, it just slipped through. The way I know is the same way that I know everything. This is just another fact that you find out by researching.October 16, 2013 11:35 pm at 11:35 pm #1215175oomisParticipant

I sincerely hope that line is meant as a joke. I did no such thing, and it was a kind of rude response.October 16, 2013 11:40 pm at 11:40 pm #1215176
Yserbius, I can’t imagine that anyone other than a cutting edge scientist would find it efficient to build from the ground up. And even those people would be best served using an already built open-source alternative, though no open-source software uses Prolog. I hope that you’re comfortable in Python.October 16, 2013 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #1215177HLMMember

what does “the same difference” mean?October 17, 2013 12:33 am at 12:33 am #1215182
Oomis, that was the mods editing when I responded to your question.
HLM: I don’t understand the question. Does the existence of one etymological connection require that all words carry the same connections?
Kishkefresser, it means that the difference is the same. But it is mostly used to mean “it doesn’t matter”.October 17, 2013 1:00 am at 1:00 am #1215183
You probably did not realize. That was a Mod responding to something “the-guy-who-knows-everything” presumably wrote in response to your question. He knew everything besides not to reveal identifying information.October 17, 2013 1:44 am at 1:44 am #1215184

multi-part question coming up.
Who will win the Clemson – Florida State showdown, and will the winner be able to pass Bama or Oregon in the polls? Will the winner win the ACC? Will this game be better than the ACC title game? The BCS championship?
I expect answers from a person who “knows everything”.
I am not looking for answers that rag on sports. I want real opinion answers that have some basis to them.
I realize I sound like a teacher. Too bad. Begin the answering!October 17, 2013 7:26 am at 7:26 am #1215187

Strawberry, I’m sorry. But rest assured that it will be a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of your life. And as someone who knows everything, trust me when I say that Malach thing is not true.
Burnt Steak, Florida will win and it won’t be close. They will pass Oregon but Alabama will finish the season at 2 with Ohio State at 1. Bama will win the National Championship and again the game won’t be close. Florida will beat Va. Tech in the ACC Championship and that will be a thriller.
Little Froggie: Just showing off, I guess.
I am busy again so I don’t know if I can answer all the questions in the future. But I’ll definitely try.October 17, 2013 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #1215191just my hapenceParticipant
