WAYYYYY old news. They will be opening next week. And, yes, it is expected to be the largest kosher supermarket in the world. So big, in fact, that they can have four complete aisles of Pesach supplies while still maintaining their entire stock of regular food (during Pesach time, of course).November 10, 2010 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #709794[email protected]Participant
i heard that they are having a babysitter center so you can drop off kids while you shopNovember 10, 2010 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #709795
justwatched the video mr bau said that babysitter service was a suggestion but its not happening , maybe a drive through deliNovember 10, 2010 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #709796hudiParticipant
they aren’t having the babysitter center – some people suggested it, but it didn’t end up happening.

That is one of the things I am going to miss since I left Baltimore, They are going to have Pharmacy, deli, bakery, cafe…It used to be Safeway, so it is huge.November 10, 2010 7:08 pm at 7:08 pm #709798[email protected]Participant

Wonderful people. They should have lots of Hatzlocha in their new location!!November 10, 2010 7:35 pm at 7:35 pm #709801
-it not only has its own zip code, but it also has its own post office.
-the shopping carts come with GPS systems.
-the space shuttle astronauts use it as a reference point.
-if you order and eat a fleishig sandwich in the deli section, you will be milchig by the time you reach the pizza in the dairy section.
-it has its own weather system.
-you can actually see the curvature of the earth if you stand on one end of the aisle and look to the other.
-there is a life-size model of The Pentagon in the toy section.
-announcements on the P.A. system get charged for long distance.November 10, 2010 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #709802SacrilegeMember
Sounds like Yo Mama jokes…November 10, 2010 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm #709803
I have been to a building that actually does have its own zip and post office. There is a cafe and a gift shop in the building, but it is not particularly large. Where is it?November 10, 2010 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #709804
I remeber going there years ago.. I was served by a handicapped getlemen. Such a nice thing.. As a kid I was petrified .. but still I think it was so nice!
Apparently the Safeway opened up near there expecting to take away the business from 7 MM. They were wrong.. No one shopped there so now 7MM is moving into their old store!!November 10, 2010 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #709805mamashtakahMember
Squeak – the PentagonNovember 10, 2010 10:18 pm at 10:18 pm #709806
no… it is significantly more elevated than the Pentagon… (hint hint)November 10, 2010 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #709807
Sorry, I don’t get cellist jokes.
I think I read somewhere that Smokey the Bear had his own zip code. Could it be a building in Jelly… er, Yellowstone Park?
I seem to remember that each of the twin towers has two separate zip codes.
Hatzlocha raba to the storeowners.November 10, 2010 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #709809
Hmmm, maybe it’s not so unique after all. I was thinking of the post office atop Mt. Washington. 0 square miles, population 0.November 11, 2010 4:51 am at 4:51 am #709810HealthParticipant
I’d rather talk about Mt. Washington than Seven Mile (or Jacks). Nothing ever gets better when it gets bigger. I think the only cooked, hot deli you could get in Jacks was Franks and Potato Kugel. Anyone remember?November 11, 2010 11:53 am at 11:53 am #709811
I did a bit of research (google = research), and it seems that the WTC had two zip codes, but each tower didn’t have two.
According to ChaCha, “The Empire State Building is the only building in New York City to have its own zip code. It’s 10118.”
As per Wikipedia:
There are four types of ZIP codes: Unique (assigned to a single high-volume address), P.O.-box-only (used only for P.O. boxes at a given facility, not for any other type of delivery), Military (used to route mail for the U.S. military) and Standard (all other ZIP codes). As examples of Unique ZIP codes, certain governmental agencies, universities, businesses or buildings that receive extremely high volumes of mail have their own ZIP codes, such as 20505 for the Central Intelligence Agency in Washington, D.C., 81009 for the Federal Citizen Information Center of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) in Pueblo, Colorado; 30385 for BellSouth in Atlanta; and 21412 for Bancroft Hall, the midshipman dormitory at the United States Naval Academy. An example of a P.O.-box-only ZIP code is 22313, which is used for P.O. boxes at the main post office in Alexandria, Virginia, as well as for the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In the area surrounding that post office, home and business mail delivery addresses use ZIP code 22314, which is thus a Standard ZIP code.
Sometimes zip codes are retired. An example is the town of Halcott Center in Greene County, NY, whose 12437 zip code was eliminated (it joined the 12430 area).
Much of the NY Catskill area is less populated than it was half a century ago, and several towns have disappeared under reservoirs that were built for NYC’s water supply – Union Grove, Neversink, Shavertown, and others. (For some reason, the thought of those old towns buried underwater gives me the creeps – those who were born and grew up there truly can’t go home again.)November 11, 2010 12:29 pm at 12:29 pm #709812myfriendMember
ICOT: Some of the towns you said disappeared, are still around and kicking… http://www.townofneversink.org/November 11, 2010 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #709813justsmile613Participant

yes lets discuss that
anyone care to give their explanation as to why topics often get sidetracked?November 11, 2010 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #709815
one comment off the wall leads to other topics tryong to make sense of it!November 11, 2010 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #709816
making sense of things
is that an inborn human need or is it a learned quality?
lets discuss that
and be sure to stay on topicNovember 11, 2010 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #709817
I think most people on this forum have some ADD tendencies.November 11, 2010 5:23 pm at 5:23 pm #709818
Does the market really cover seven miles? If not, I think I smell a lawsuit for misleading advertising. 🙂

I had figured as much. 🙂
Nonetheless, I’m still gonna sue for misrepresentation. 🙂
Reminds me of a Stephen Wright joke.
“I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, ‘Hey, the sign says you’re open 24 hours.’ He said, ‘Yes, but not in a row.'”

What about this one-
I woke up one morning and looked around the room. Something wasn’t right. I realized that someone had broken in the night before and replaced everything in my apartment with an exact replica. I couldn’t believe it…I woke up my roommate and showed him. I said, “Look at this–everything’s been replaced with an exact replica!” He said, “Do I know you?”November 11, 2010 9:48 pm at 9:48 pm #709833
well you think its funny and i think its funny because we can hear him saying it (in our imaginations)
but if you dont know who he is, its not funny at all, thats what makes him funnyNovember 11, 2010 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #709834
any more?November 11, 2010 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #709835
I agree, something is lost if you don’t hear his deadpan voice in your head. But not all is lost. Here are some other good and readable ones:
- Right now I’m having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.
- I broke a mirror in my house. I’m supposed to get seven years of bad luck, but my lawyer thinks he can get me five.
- I was going 70 miles an hour and got stopped by a cop who said, “Do you know the speed limit is 55 miles per hour?” “Yes, officer, but I wasn’t going to be out that long…”
- I was in a job interview and I opened a book and started reading. Then I said to the guy, “Let me ask you a question. If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?” He said, “I don’t know.” I said, “I don’t want your job.”
- Last week the candle factory burned down. Everyone just stood around and sang Happy Birthday.
Etc. So…. has this thread been sufficiently derailed yet?November 11, 2010 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm #709836
I don’t get this one, though I think that I should…. help?
“My grandfather gave me a watch. It doesn’t have any hands or numbers. He says it’s very accurate. I asked him what time it was. You can guess what he told me.”November 11, 2010 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #709837
I can remember the first time I had to go to sleep. Mom said, “Steven, time to go to sleep.” I said, “But I don’t know how.” She said, “It’s real easy. Just go down to the end of tired and hang a left.” So I went down to the end of tired, and just out of curiosity I hung a right. My mother was there, and she said “I thought I told you to go to sleep.”
– Steven WrightNovember 11, 2010 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #709838
he means you can guess what he told him because since the watch was totally functionless there is nothing exact he could tell him, so you have to guess, just like you have to guess what time it is with such a watch
something like thatNovember 11, 2010 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #709839
I always liked this one:
“I have an irregular phone… it has no 5 on it. My friend called me up and said, ‘How come you never call me anymore?’ I said I couldn’t call everyone I wanted because my phone has no 5 on it. He said, ‘That’s wierd. How long has this been going on?’ I said I didn’t know because my clock has no 7”.

D’oh! You’re right, of course. That’s what I get for cutting and pasting without reading it through.

I bought a blank tape, went home and played in on my stereo and turned it up full blast. A few minutes later a neighbor came over to complain… He was a mime…
