I popa would have entered any of the numerous shuls in these United Lands of Amerigo, he would have instantly noticed the Daf displayed on the huge zmanim screens. (Do they uses electricity in his shul?)December 2, 2013 11:09 am at 11:09 am #1019713
So, did you remember to do the switch, or did you forget like a …?December 2, 2013 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #1019714
I did the switch!December 2, 2013 3:16 pm at 3:16 pm #1019715
Just one example on how the CR changed my life: So I’m a pretty aggressive driver, and that’s saying it nicely. Usually, when someone isn’t driving the way I like I let out a whole string of @#$%^&* and some #$@&%*!…. well the other day I was driving and someone on the road was not behaving. So I just looked him in the eye and yelled I hate you, you big fat jerk! And then I was laughing too hard that I didn’t even get a chance to rear-end him or tail him home to give him a piece of my mind….December 2, 2013 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #1019716
Mind you, kindly put your s/n on your car… I want to be FAR AWAY!!December 2, 2013 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #1019717
lol that’s really funny! Is that a permanent change?December 2, 2013 3:36 pm at 3:36 pm #1019718
lol streetgeek, that’s terrific.
Usually, you can win the road rage argument much better by laughing at them.December 2, 2013 3:38 pm at 3:38 pm #1019719

LF – I was just exaggerating a tiny little bit. I have never ever ever rear ended anyone on purpose. Nor have I tailed anyone all the way home. I do believe however that I am the reason behind the “Pray for me, I drive in _____” bumper stickers….
TAOM – I wish, but fat chance! I try to reserve my crude language for when I’m alone in the car though I do get reminders sometimes when I slip up…Some people in my life are just such <censored> that I look forward to driving so I can just let it all out….December 2, 2013 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #1019721
Gladly lend you my car. The one without a horn. It’s highly conducive to acquiring self restraint, patience control. A “middos workout” center. (and I can do nothing about it – I’m not gonna bump the guy in front of me yapping on his cell phone, oblivious to the traffic signal). Cursing and foaming will do nothing constructive – it forces me to behave properly.
Oh, and I’ve long learned NEVER to glance at another driver’s approval, or lack thereof, of my driving expertise. There are scary, REAL SCARY people out there. (that’s for another thread)December 2, 2013 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #1019722
A “middos workout” center you say? I’ll take it – where can I pick it up from and when? Let me know ASAP so I can schedule an appointment by the mechanic to have the horn fixed.
And I also happen to disagree with your statement that cursing and foaming isn’t constructive. It may not help the situation but I personally find it therapeutic. If that’s not constructive, then what is?December 2, 2013 9:46 pm at 9:46 pm #1019723
You are Mechaven to the Gemara’s Hava Amina.December 2, 2013 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #1019724
Huh? Cryptic post alert!!!! Run for cover!!!!!!December 3, 2013 4:47 am at 4:47 am #1019725
I noticed someone with a bumper sticker, that was the title of this thread. Who was that???? I laughed so hard I almost rear ended you!December 3, 2013 7:04 am at 7:04 am #1019726
If the mechanic fixes the horn the it’s no more a middos workout center. (or as they say in Yiddish no more hat maker) I’m also terrified of the thought of getting into a horn operational vehicle and revenging myself against society at large for all the years of pent up feelings…
One more note. I’m certainly not one to lecture chas v’sholom, or even to advise. It just appears to me, that even if one finds these forms of “letting off steam” to be therapeutic, in the long run, it is detrimental to character refinement.December 3, 2013 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #1019727
funnybone – Wasn’t me, though I should get a hold of a bumper sticker like that and keep it inside my car so I’ll remember to use my lashon nekiya.
Little Froggie – So I guess the deal is off, I don’t think I would be able to handle that, but I’ll gladly do the revenging on society for you! Just give me the plate numbers of certain people and I’ll take care of it. And btw I love your way of subtly giving mussar 😉 I know I know – I’ll add this on to the long list of things I have to work on before I die.December 3, 2013 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm #1019728
Did it have Tennessee plates? It was me.December 3, 2013 5:25 pm at 5:25 pm #1019729
Insurance is cheaper in Tennessee?December 19, 2013 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm #1019730
So I figure, if I can just get enough money to have 1001 cities and 1001 boats, they won’t have taynos on me for not learning enough. So I’m working on it.
But that’s not why I’m behind on daf yomi. No, that’s because you’re all BIG FAT JERKS
HTHDecember 19, 2013 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm #1019731
The other way is easier.December 19, 2013 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #1019732
You mean plastic surgery?December 19, 2013 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm #1019733
Heh. Not quite. I mean, it’s easy to be poorer than Hillel. Anyone who is drowning in debt is poorer than Hillel. I noticed that Rashi doesn’t learn that these are real Taanos. He calls it a Pis’chon Peh to have Taanos. In other words, although there was a person who went above and beyond, that doesn’t mean that I am now a Rasha for not completely following. However, it does show that if you really want you can deal with your situation. That’s called a Pis’chon Peh.December 20, 2013 6:15 am at 6:15 am #1019734
they announced the change in shul after mussaf, but the two real jerks that left early never found outFebruary 15, 2014 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm #1019735
And what’s the excuse this time?
Just because I was 6 blatt behind I wouldn’t want to know that a tent is not an ????February 16, 2014 12:45 am at 12:45 am #1019736
It’s one thing not to know that Daf Yomi is skipping a mesechta. Fine. But you didn’t know that a tent isn’t necessarily an ohel? And we’re big fat jerks for not realizing that you’re an am ha’aretz?February 16, 2014 12:47 am at 12:47 am #1019737
Also, which type of tent are you reffering to?February 16, 2014 1:14 am at 1:14 am #1019738
Normal regular tent.February 16, 2014 1:52 am at 1:52 am #1019739
Comparable to which of the gemara’s tents, kvius-wise?February 16, 2014 2:06 am at 2:06 am #1019740
I have a big agnes 1 person ultralight.
I don’t recall the model number, but it was almost as expensive as my backpack.
Is it weird if I only spent about 3 times as much on my car as on my backpacking gear?February 16, 2014 3:00 am at 3:00 am #1019741
Your tent is lower than ten tefachim?
Is it weird if I only spent about 3 times as much on my car as on my backpacking gear?
It is weird if you were able to get a decent car in the $2,000 range.February 16, 2014 3:20 am at 3:20 am #1019742
i hold like rebbi yehudaFebruary 16, 2014 4:29 am at 4:29 am #1019743
So I’m a big fat jerk if I don’t?
(Also, R’ Yehuda holds it’s an ohel, just aray and it’s not mevatel Ohel k’va.)February 17, 2014 6:43 am at 6:43 am #1019744
You’re a big fat jerk no matter what. Sorry, but I had to say that, it was in my script.February 17, 2014 12:21 pm at 12:21 pm #1019745
Shvartze Volf, anyone?
I think I’m crying wolf! 🙂March 31, 2014 12:32 am at 12:32 am #1019747
Any jerks know what comes after sukka? I finished sukka tonight (despite that I was up to page 42 yesterday during shachris).March 31, 2014 1:16 am at 1:16 am #1019748

Probably Bava Basra, in this pattern.April 1, 2014 6:03 am at 6:03 am #1019752
Any jerks know what comes after sukka?

Popa’s on vacation because he already learned the first 14 blatt in Rosh Hashanah!May 11, 2014 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm #1019758
“There’s never a vacation from learning” – every camp learning director.
Also, he probably needs to catch up on Yoma.June 15, 2014 4:36 am at 4:36 am #1019759

Actually, a peek at Rashi and Tosafos would show you that they did not have Taanis directly after Rosh Hashana.June 15, 2014 6:13 am at 6:13 am #1019761
You’re telling me that popa called us all big fat jerks because of a diyuk in Rash”i? He doesn’t even learn Rash”i!June 15, 2014 8:21 am at 8:21 am #1019762
All of you Americans are big fat jerks!
