for the sake of everyone in my shul, I certainly hope not. 🙂
seriously, there is a thing to stand. I would just like to know why.September 21, 2009 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1081310squeakParticipant
kapusta, I don’t see why not – if anyone complains you can just blame it on the pipes 🙂September 21, 2009 7:09 pm at 7:09 pm #1081311September 22, 2009 4:34 am at 4:34 am #1081312coke not pepsiMember
maybe kavod?September 23, 2009 7:15 am at 7:15 am #1081317
Hi all. I’m new to the CR, but to make sure I caught up, I read through all 86 pages (unlike some who just read the first few and skipped). So, here is some info I think you need:
1) Mensa was founded in England by Roland Berrill and Lance Ware. American Mensa was started, I believe, by Victor Serebriakoff when he was international president. Isaac Asimov was not the originator. He was, however, an extremely active member in NY Mensa, but not much elsewhere as he didn’t fly.
2) One should generally say “Amen” to someone’s bracha after they washed but before they eat bread. The exception would be to a child’s bracha. Since children are not chayuv in mitzvos, their brachos are for chinuch. Therefore one can say “Amen” generally, but it would be a hefsek after washing. The best thing to do is to have the children wash first. To be on the safe side, check this out with your LOR.
3) I know I’ve heard an answer about why we say the mah nistanah when we do, but I don’t remember. Check several of the ArtScroll haggados. I’m sure there is an answer in their somewhere.
4) To get fish oil out of clothing, put in the sun until it’s evaporated (probably already evaporated by now). Then soak in a vinegar and water solution overnight. Then wash in the vinegar and water solution. If the fish smell isn’t gone, repeat the soaking and washing. When the fish odor is gone, wash in detergent to get rid of the vinegar smell. (I googled it.)
Glad to be here.September 23, 2009 7:25 am at 7:25 am #1081318
I knew I was forgetting something.
5) There is such a word as noone. However, as was pointed out (I forgot by whom), it is difficult to read. Therefore it is frequently spelled with a hypen (no-one) or with an umlaut (don’t know how to make one of those on my laptop).September 23, 2009 11:27 am at 11:27 am #1081319
Just to satisfy my curiosity, how long did it take you to read through this whole thread?September 23, 2009 12:57 pm at 12:57 pm #1081320
Wow, haifagirl! Thanks a lot!September 23, 2009 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #1081321
kapusta: I started yesterday and read slightly more than half. I finished this morning. But right now I have no life (unlike the moderators, who do a wonderful job btw).September 23, 2009 2:32 pm at 2:32 pm #1081322DebbyMember
haifagirl:”But right now I have no life”-is everything ok by you?September 23, 2009 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm #1081323
Everything is great. I’m just kind of in limbo right now. I’m in a temporary apartment until I can move into the new one on the first. I’m trying to finish up a project for work but can’t until I get more info from my boss. I need to finish up a project for my other job, but again, I’m waiting for info from that boss. So I sit here and wait and enjoy the CR.September 23, 2009 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #1081324
And thanks for your concern. That is really touching.September 23, 2009 6:03 pm at 6:03 pm #1081325

Would anyone have Rav Scheinberg’s yeshiva’s American address or know where I can find it?
Thanks.September 24, 2009 6:50 pm at 6:50 pm #1081332
mepal:well if you know where in america it is/the full name of the yeshiva you could use our good friend prof. google
and on your previous comment: 😛September 24, 2009 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #1081333
I’ve been googling all I can for days, in all different ways. That’s why I directed my question here 😉September 24, 2009 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #1081334September 24, 2009 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1081335
Thank you, Joseph. Is that his E’Y yeshivas American address? (I’m just making sure)September 24, 2009 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #1081336JosephParticipant
Yes, check out the website.September 24, 2009 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #1081337
The link didn’t work here. Thanks again.September 24, 2009 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #1081338
Are there any special prizes for posters who figure out mods other SN’s? I think there should be.
yes. and the prizes are in a triple locked safe and you have to figure out the combinations to get the prize…September 24, 2009 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #1081339
kapsssssssssta, I think that should be put in the ‘ATT mods’ thread.
too late, already answeredSeptember 24, 2009 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #1081340
mepal: Why? It was a question and it was random.September 24, 2009 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #1081341
I wasn’t too late. YOU were too fast 😉September 24, 2009 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #1081342
is the prize worth getting? or is it like one of these G.O. things where you have a whole bunch of points/tickets (whatevers) and end up with a pack of cups or something.
Now getting to serious business, how should I break it to the mod?
trying to pry personal information out of other posters or out of moderators is not encouraged. posts that attempt to identify a moderator by a alt. SN in the threads will not be approved. sorry.September 24, 2009 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #1081343
I think I should get a prize. I fixed you mistake for you 😉September 24, 2009 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #1081344
Thats the problem, haifa girl. Tooo on topic 😉September 24, 2009 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #1081345
mod, I’m not prying. I figured it out all by myself. <insert smug look> I’m just saying that I think I should be able to email the mod and ask, (and probably get a no answer regardless if its right or not) and then get upgraded to a mod or something. Dont ya think so?September 24, 2009 9:03 pm at 9:03 pm #1081346
Maybe kapusta’s a secret mod?? ;]September 24, 2009 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #1081347
I’m not gonna say who, but i know one of us is a secret mmod guess whoSeptember 24, 2009 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #1081348September 24, 2009 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #1081349
I’ve heard rumors in the Moderator Lounge that kapusta is really 72, but I’m not positive, 72 is very secretive.
Kapustas nose is too big to be 72 :o)September 24, 2009 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1081350
Its not me tiher, but I’ve heard a rumor that 80 is one of us!September 24, 2009 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1081351
Aww! I want to meet a secret mod….. Oh 72…. Where are you? hereSeptember 24, 2009 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #1081352
72, thats funny, I’m here too. Whadaya know?!?! yes, I know. please pass me a coffeeSeptember 24, 2009 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #1081353
Thats because you’re 80September 24, 2009 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #1081354
Personally, I think kapusta is trying to fake us out by pretending to have a conversation with “72”September 24, 2009 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #1081355areivimzehlazehParticipant
mybat- you meet em every day… you just don’t know it 😉September 24, 2009 9:22 pm at 9:22 pm #1081356

No pictures in the CR or personal info 😉September 24, 2009 9:27 pm at 9:27 pm #1081361
