    yossi, you only have to be concerned if the fever is over 101. (its usually higher at night)

    BIG chance you’ll get it, anonymisss. Not trying to scare you just forewarning you. It spreads very fast (duh) , especially when you’re all living in the same house (which I’m assuming). The flu itself is not so scary unless you have an underlying medical condition, like high BP.

    how unhealthy is artificial parve popcorn salt, the spice?! & while we’re talking about salt, how much is too much salt for a healthy person?!

    #1081051

    Jax, for salt, I think recommended daily amount is 2,400 mg.

    kapusta: yeah i was actually kinda hoping that no one would say in mg! how about in human talk!?

    Jax, like 2.4 g. jk I just went to the kitchen (I’m into doing exercise every night 😉 ) so, 590 mg in 1/4 teaspoon (I just went back, again, to make sure it was teaspoon and not tablespoon. anyone have a drink for me? 😉 ) that would mean about 1 whole teaspoon a day. Most foods are already salted and over a day it comes out to a LOT more than that. If you’re watching your salt, the first thing to go is processed foods. kapusta is fine. 🙂

    Glad to hear, anonymisss. Takes 5 days till its not catchy anymore. Send your bro a refuah shlaimah from all of us here!

    #1081058

    does a/o know why every time i try to start a new topic and click send post, i’m told, ‘sorry this topic has been closed’? I tried s/t w/Jewish novels (and how they stink), s/t i learnt in Chumash, titled ‘scary ??’ and now i tried getting help w/Yiddios klallios and it didn’t go through! Mods?? is there s/t wrong w/ my system or yours? or are these topics tabboo which i don’t believe can be right…answer anyone?

    #1081059

    well, there were threads on some of these topics in the past… like jewish novels….

    I am not sure why they wont start a new one for it, as it was months ago.

    kapusta: thank you! i’m not watching my salt, i just think that i over do the salt when i eat! like i usually salt the food, before i even taste it!

    mepal: see what i said to kapusta!

    Jax, I’ll play substitute for the nurse here, but seriously, not a good idea. Its probably much easier to watch your salt intake now than to end up with high blood pressure. (c’v)

    Jax, ya must be related to me, with the salt thing. I also add salt before tasting (and yeah, I have high blood pressure, no kidding)

    kapusta: yeah my family always tells me to go easy on the salt! actually low blood pressure, not high blood pressure runs in my family!

    anonymisss: we must be! i always feel everything needs salt, why bother tasting it first, if it needs it anyways, just put it in before! i actually have my own salt shaker at the table, so i don’t have to always say pass the salt!

    #1081065

    Jax, oh, low blood pressure is another story. I think its just as hard for people to raise it as it is for people to lower it. or so they say.

    Dear Mepal,

    I do not have a phone and I don’t text. I just find it much easier to write “Anyone” etcetra in short than type the entire word out. Because, like the rest of my generation, I am somewhat lazy. For the future I will try to use proper grammar and spelling when specifically adressing you.

    Sincerly,

    Young-But-Not-Stupid

    Whew, good thing I know how to type.

    ur probably right but if i pass all my finals even with a 65 and 1/2 i still deserve my stupid piece of paper.

    LAST DAY FUN:

    leaving school building to dance in rain and sing who let the jews out!

    screaming at teacher (that felt sooooo good.)

    trying to fall asleep on floor (until i realized how DIRTY it was which took all of 2 seconds)

    by the way believe it or not the.nurse was more close with the first thing she said than she realized

    i was reading my medical book (ugh) and it was describing the results and consequences of actions/activities. when i was done i realized that it (the sickness) had all come about because i was overworking myself and not taking care of myself simultaneously thereby lowering my immune system (by the way my fever broke not too long after and i am feeling great with only residue congestion) thanx guys!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 :)…..

    #1081073

    since i cant start my own topic, i’m gonna start a sub topic in a topic. Mods: you cant delete it cuz this is the random thread!

    JEWISH BOOKS STINK!! they’re always so FAKE! the parents never fight, neither do the kids. the teenagers always help out and the babys never wake up in middle of the night. No one ever uses ‘language’ as in good-bad language like stupid and crazy and idiot. The parents always have money spilling out of their pockets, the families are always super yeshivish. Sometimes the beginings are always realy good and then the ends sizzle out and are really bad, like the writer just ran out of patience, which s/he most probably did. And then, our teachers, parents wondor why we have to read non jewish books. I think the answers obvious.

    *these points do not involve the Binah or Mishpacha, cuz they always have normal real life stuff.

    *i think i may be one of the best spellers on the cr…when i’m not in a lazy mood

    *that was for you mepal

    well you could draw pictures on it…. jk it may just be a piece of paper but believe it or not some people actually hold that it is an official certification that you have been summarily edumacated (i only got one from high school. not that we learned much but whatever…..)

    YBNS, (thats what I think I’ll be calling you from now on) A. because as moish said, not everyone gets one, and B. because its very complicated to organize it exactly according to row that you end up with yours. 🙂

    congrats! you made it! sunday I’m graduating high school, I’m also having a party! (which can officially start tonight since I’m really free now, and if no one started planning yet, you’re in big trouble! 😉 )

    funny moish. In my day, they would hand out the diplomas in an envelope. The ones who didn’t get a diploma still got an envelope.

    I assume that they stop giving out diplomas because the kids would rather have an electronic version anyway 🙂

    Oh, yes, thank you for reminding me to say thank you to Mepal, Kapusta.

    Thank you Mepal!

    (Just tell me when,and I’ll (or I shall cuz will doesn’t make much sense there)(is it gramatically correct to have a perenticies within a perenticies?) stop with the perfect grammar and spelling. Just admit first that it is not worth it to start with me. Unless you’re one of those old fashioned people who LIKE perfect grammar ecetra. 🙂

    youngbutnotstupid: congrats on graduating! about the books topic, i actually like jewish novels better then non-jewish ones! weird but yeah i do! maybe cause i’m not much of a reader, so i don’t know experience with the non-jewish books!

    kapusta: we need a new thread for graduation parties, or maybe in ICOT’s mazel tov thread?!

    Always knew I couldn’t bake! Oh well…

    youngster, I’m no grammar geek. You just have to understand that when you are writing something, other people will be reading it. You have to write things out coherently. Nothing too complicated. You were actually getting good at it until you started with the ()’s.

    Hope someone can help me with this. Thanx in advance. 🙂

    A few weeks ago, to celebrate someones birthday, me and a few girls went to a popular Israeli restaurant for supper. At the end, one girl went over to an Israeli worker (maybe/maybe not frum) and asked him to come sing happy birthday to the birthday girl. Thankfully he didnt, but he gave her a few brachos and finished. I thought it was completely inappropriate to even ask. this girl, who happens to be a very good girl, was raised in a home where her parents had no problem exposing her, and she openly admits that. I would imagine the thought to ask something like that came from “over-exposure” Question: should I say something to her now about it, and if yes, how should I say it in a way that she’ll understand. She didnt think there was anything wrong the first time. :/

    not that i know enough (nor am i a kiruv rabbi) but i personally think that it (unchecked exposure/exposure b’chlal) is not just an issue with individuals but rather an issue starting to spread amongst jewish communities everywhere (you can take me or some of my friends/people that i know as examples)

    (i was planning to address this topic somehow so thanks kapusta for introducing)

    Does it have anything to do with Down’s Syndrom? Is it similiar?
