There are two types of people in the world. Those who are able and those who are not. It does not pas for those who are able to use their abilities to an extent that would cause everyone else embarrassment. That is called having middos. Only the untalented should showcase their abilities so that no one feels inferior.
Someone who disregards this does not have middos. You shouldn’t let him marry your daughters. Someone who waves humorous muleta over and over, showing no regard for the feelings of inadequacy that he causes, may be only eccentric. But if he wonders why no one reciprocates in kind, and tries to shame others into copying him – well, that is simply incorrigible.
This klal godol why the most capable minds in klal yisroel become lawyers, accountants, and whatnots instead of learning full time, and only bench warmers stay to warm the benches.February 7, 2013 2:07 am at 2:07 am #927780Torah613TorahParticipant
What does this have to do with Telshe and tzitzis? Is it true that they don’t wear tzitzis in Telshe and if so why?February 7, 2013 10:24 am at 10:24 am #927781haifagirlParticipant
I did not understand the OP at all.February 7, 2013 11:04 am at 11:04 am #927782lesschumrasParticipant
Squeak, what you are describing is what people call the declining generations. Until universities were thrown open to Jews in the 19th century, the only path open to our best minds was learning. Think of all the Jewish Nobel prize winners, lawyers, and scientists.250 years ago they all would have become rabbonim. Yeriday hadoros is largely a function of many of our best minds being lost to other endeavours.February 7, 2013 11:59 am at 11:59 am #927783R.T.Participant
AFAIK, In Telshe, they wore tzitzis all the time.
Briskers to my knowledge do not wear tzitzis on Shabbos and Yom Kippur.February 7, 2013 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm #927784☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Squeak, what if I let him marry only one of my daughters? The one I’m thinking of happens to like cider, so there’s at least one thing in common.February 7, 2013 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #927785BaalHaboozeParticipant

For anyone confused, this was in response to: http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/%D7%9B%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%99%D7%99-%D7%98%D7%95%D7%91February 7, 2013 4:25 pm at 4:25 pm #927789

It is like a King who has a law that he does not speak pig latin in his court. But, the King has a retarded advisor who can only speak pig latin. So he speaks pig latin to him.February 7, 2013 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm #927791WIYMember
The moshol makes no sense because speaking pig latin is a chachmah because you have to know English first.February 7, 2013 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #927792
It wasn’t English pig latin, it was klingon pig latin. You can speak pig latin from any language.February 7, 2013 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #927793apushatayidParticipant

You can also compare it to the old couple who had been married for many years. They were so tired of talking to each other that the man took a course in korean and tbe wife took a course in greek just so they could speak to each other without knowing what the other would say. Eventually they both got alzheimers and ended up in assisted living, but since they spoke different languages had to be cared for in different homes.
The moral is that by alzheimers, long term memory is the first thing to go.February 7, 2013 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #927797
I would compare it to the young couple, who fell in love, but neither knew how to speak, so they both learned how to speak so that they could communicate. But the man learned french and the woman learned russian, so they still could not speak.
So too here.February 8, 2013 12:46 am at 12:46 am #927798Torah613TorahParticipant
I only just got the story.
For those confused – it’s saying that in Telshe, they didn’t wear tzitzis in order not to embarrass people who didn’t have tzitzis. So too, people shouldn’t show off their talents.
That moshol was really whacky.February 8, 2013 12:55 am at 12:55 am #927799
Sheesh, it wasn’t a moshol, it is a pretty famous story. I’m sorry if you never heard it. And the point of referencing it was just for the punchline so that was all I quoted. But what disappoints me the most though is that best part was the end, and no one even noticed.February 8, 2013 3:41 am at 3:41 am #927800Ðash®Participant
It wasn’t English pig latin, it was klingon pig latin. You can speak pig latin from any language.
No. The Wikipedia article on Pig Latin explicity states that it is based on English (until someone changes it).
