Back to page 2…
Ashrecha Yisroel, me and the good Rabbi go back a loooong loooong time…
About that… are you two moderators? You know each other personally?December 3, 2008 1:17 am at 1:17 am #1175448
AY: I’m sworn to secrecy. So is the good Rabbi. Its a mutual pact.December 3, 2008 3:40 am at 3:40 am #1175449
Am I too late?!?! Looks like I’m always late in posting. I guess that’s what I get for being YW’s newest member… anyway I’m obviously from Brooklyn and no I’m not 19. Just don’t tell my students that – they waste their lives trying to figure out my birthday and year… anyway… I’m kinda in denial so I’ll be brooklyn19 till I’m married. And then hopefully I’ll be “yerushalayim__”December 3, 2008 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm #1175450amichaiParticipant

Because I am a proponent of the Theory of Evolution.
I’m 17, nearly 18, and I live in NY. You know me under a different screen name – one that has left the Coffee Room. Hint: I’m met with
P.P.S. What on Earth is that Microsoft Live Search ad, with pictures of immodest personalities, doing on the bottom of this page?!December 5, 2008 1:55 am at 1:55 am #1175460
Charles R. Darwin: Welcome back GMAB. (Btw, you’ve previously made the same comment under your other screen name, regarding the ads on YW.)
Did you get your drivers permit yet?December 5, 2008 7:45 am at 7:45 am #1175461BogenParticipant
Well, well, well look what we have here… the return if the G-man, eh G-boy!

Another interesting facet regarding posters here that I’ve noticed, is that the youngest posters come in two extremes. Either totally Torah-oriented, meaningful, from the heart, and indeed wisdom that reflects beyond their age; or followers of the shallow liberal/modern ideology picked up from the latest edition of the New York Times. (The older posters do seem to come in greater varieties, with some middle ground.)
Its an interesting observation.December 5, 2008 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1175464ChachamParticipant
bogen- maskim by the way gmab responded so attacked he must be a youngsterDecember 5, 2008 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #1175465Ashrecha YisroelParticipant
GMAB, I was wondering where you went… 🙂December 5, 2008 10:09 pm at 10:09 pm #1175466illini07Member
Illini is representative of my Alma Mater, and ’07 was the year I created this account. I’m sad to report that I’m not all that creative.December 6, 2008 11:28 pm at 11:28 pm #1175467I can only tryMember
I thought 07 was your graduate year, and assumed you were a young guy (on another thread).
Oh, well – Sherlock stubs his toe.

Well, I believe that the fact that we are on the internet doesn’t mean that we should be anonymous. With my username, everyone knows who I really am.December 7, 2008 2:01 am at 2:01 am #1175469

well, my username is a bit obvious….December 7, 2008 5:53 am at 5:53 am #1175471sunshinematters2Member
a gutten vuch everyone btw. A medical professional told me that some religious Jews don’t get enough sunlight due to how much skin they cover up. I don’t know if he said dark colors also, I dont remember if he said dark colors also. However he said it could lead to medical problems not having enough vitamin d. He said it is a myth about sun being dangerous. However, I can’t in this short reply, say all the benefits and precautions. I have this screen name as a sunny reminder for everyone to get more sun, especially in the winter. even though you cant get too much vitamin D in the winter, but still it is good for your mental health too! 🙂December 7, 2008 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #1175472
“he said it is a myth about sun being dangerous.” tell that to all the skin cancer victims r’l and their families. or john mccain.December 7, 2008 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #1175474xeroxMember
If a person doesn’t have enough vitamin d they can just take a vitamin pill (or chewable)..December 8, 2008 3:16 am at 3:16 am #1175475ujmParticipant
dont have internet, how’d you sign up if you didn’t have internet?December 8, 2008 3:29 am at 3:29 am #1175476HaQerMember
I like to hock, and I like this strange spelling with a Q because I like Q’sDecember 8, 2008 6:07 am at 6:07 am #1175477sunshinematters2Member
xerox said,”If a person doesn’t have enough vitamin d they can just take a vitamin
pill (or chewable)..” while that may or may not be enough. I am sure the Dr. I went to
who is a master nutritionist and expert on health, would have told me to just pop a pill!
However, since we are allowed to go off topic here obviously… 🙂 could someone
tell me, as I am new here, what is the differen’s between the topic page and the forum
page?December 8, 2008 1:18 pm at 1:18 pm #1175478
I guess you live in E”Y where the “k” and “c” were not invented yet.
(ex. Eli Haqoen Street and Petah Tiqwe)
Now let’s see who can figure those out!December 9, 2008 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #1175479
Don’t forget the Qotel & Bene Beraq.December 9, 2008 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm #1175480
I always thought the “q” was used to represent the letter “kuf” (as in, the letter after “tzadi”) while “k” or “c” would be used for “cof” (as in, the letter after “yud”). So I’d think “Eli Haquoen Street” and “Qotel” are mistakes, though the other names make sense.December 9, 2008 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #1175481
Think what ya like – THESE ARE ACTUAL SIGNS HERE IN E”Y!!!!December 9, 2008 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #1175482
Please read my posts more carefully. I never said these signs don’t exist, just that I think they are mistakes.December 9, 2008 2:47 pm at 2:47 pm #1175483Yanky55Participant
How does Joseph hatzadik have time to respond on every thread? I think he posts more than anyone else on this site.
Shouldn’t he be learning instead of being mevatel Torah with all this shtuss?
And if some people are “lucky enough” not to have a TV or care about a TV show, why in the world would he take the time to google it to find out what I was talking about?
Tayku……December 9, 2008 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #1175484
Sorry. No offence meant.December 9, 2008 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #1175485noitallmrParticipant
Was also bothering me. If he is such a Talmid Chochom whats he doing most of the day browsing? Are you on your blackberry behind your Gemoro in Kollel?December 9, 2008 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm #1175486
I’m not offended. I just didn’t want you or intellegent to think I’d accuse you of making that up. By the way, intellegent, would you mind if I referred to you as intelligent instead?December 9, 2008 3:31 pm at 3:31 pm #1175487
Whoever claimed to be a talmid chochom??
Besides, if I’m the editor, this is pashut a matter of parnassa…December 9, 2008 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1175488
anon for this,
well, I don’t know but I remember looking up places on a map and I don’t think there were any c’s or k’s on the map but maybe I’m mistaken. And those examples are actual signs. It’s really queer (or keer?)
about spelling my name “intelligent” I will have to think about that. The truth is, I get very offended when people spell my name differently but I guess if it really causes you Tza’ar I will try to be mevater.December 9, 2008 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #1175489GivPerfMember
Mine’s short for Giving Performer, a personality type bestowed on me by an online personality quiz – which is not correct, by the way. I just liked the sound of it. 🙂December 9, 2008 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1175490
I might be wrong about the spelling on maps. I learned in school that “Q” and “K” were used to represent different Hebrew letters, and have found that transliterations in siddurim and chumashim seem to follow that convention. Apparently maps don’t though.
I’m happy to address you however you prefer. I thought that you’d mentioned misspelling your username when you created it, and I thought you might want to be addressed differently, that’s all.December 9, 2008 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1175491
anon, I do believe that intelligent (oops) was being facetious regarding the spelling of her screen name.December 9, 2008 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #1175492charlie brownMember
anon for this,
I think intellegent was sarcastically saying that she’s too intelligent to care whether she’s addressed as intelligent or as intellegent.
am I correct, intellegent?December 9, 2008 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #1175493
joseph – can’t be. too many posts get through that you wouldn’t allow. unless you actually enjoy when people rip you 🙂December 9, 2008 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #1175494
Hm. everyone is really confusing me. I’m not even sure what I want anymore.
Thanks for your understanding (if someone spelled their name rivke or Chona or Ezter, that would still be the spelling of their name, no?)
That’s not exactly what i meant but I guess it’s true, LOL!
Wow! You are brilliant! How’d ya know what I meant?!? :-0December 9, 2008 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #1175495mdlevineMember
intellegent – I undertand your frustration.
a long time ago when I first started posting in the main news site and here in the CR people were referring to me as “Dr.” Levine and it took quite a bit of time and postings to convince people that I am NOT a doctor – finally, I decided it was easier to just open a practice :o)
When I first saw the “e” I assumed that the “e” was intentional and that you were in a sense combining intelligence with the “e”lectronic medium in which we communicate. whatever the reason is, as far as I am concerned you are intellegent and I am still not a doctor (btw, I do not even like it when others capitalize the mdl (or any of the letters) of mdlevine, oh well…December 9, 2008 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #1175496
Well, I’ll come outright with this.
I COULD NOT CARE LESS WHAT ANY OF YOU CALL ME!
I was KIDDING!
mdlevine, (made sure not to capitalize) you really think deeply! I just misspelled it but that is very funny!
any other comments?
I am feeling very good with all the attention!December 9, 2008 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1175497charlie brownMember
I think everyone should call you intell*gent. This way they don’t have to take sides on this important issue.December 10, 2008 6:53 pm at 6:53 pm #1175500squeakParticipant
‘cuz I’m not greasy!!! Isn’t that brilliant?
I hadn’t posted in here until now because I didn’t know why I chose my name. I just made that up now. (Actually, I do know why I chose it originally but it’s not a reason I’m going to publicize).
Wow, I’m on a ROLL today!
