To be fair, perhaps all these were once rated well and accurate, but I feel they are under appreciated as of NOW.
In no particular order:
– fruits & vegetables
– the great feeling after getting an oil change
– chazara (reviewing something you learned, over and over again)
– birchas asher yotzar
– electric cars
– bicycling (as a main form of transportation)
– learning from the elderly
– garbage men
– closing your eyes, and taking in a delicious breath of fresh air

Heimish food is OVER-rated imho. How about living in a country that doesn’t need bomb shelters?January 17, 2013 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #924855

Being a parent.
Finding cheap gas.

MorahRach- A shabbos nap.
i beg to differ
that is definitely NOT underrated! Name me THREE people you know (over 15yrs old) that regards this oineg shabbos lightly….January 19, 2013 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #924864haifagirlParticipant
Haifa is absolutely NOT overrated. For those of us who like to live in a city, this one is the best.
But speaking of underrated: grammar.January 21, 2013 4:06 pm at 4:06 pm #924865
snow is extremely underrated. u just have to know how to use it properly efficiently and wisely – and it is most amazing!!!! i’m talking about skiing, snowboarding, making a snowman or an igloo with the kids, sledding, etc. i make an effort to show my kids how beautiful snow is, and how we should be thankful for it (not dreading it like 90% of the population)January 21, 2013 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #924866MorahRachMember
Baalhabooze, until I had a child I did not appreciate it!!! My husband an I used to take short naps on shabbos and take walks, read just hang out. Now if I can nap for 20 mins I’m golden!!! Good call though about over 15 because most of my other examples were going to be kids, high schoolers, people with no jobs.January 21, 2013 8:55 pm at 8:55 pm #924867
if you havent noticed, i mispell grammer every time to make you” and for the record, its briooon1Q7&7#ggu!!!!
stinker.January 22, 2013 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #924868
MorahRach – i know what you mean! You and hubby should take turns napping on shabbos afternoon (that’s what I do, this way my wife and I benefit somewhat, even if it’s a short afternoon)January 23, 2013 3:58 am at 3:58 am #924869SaysMeMember
baalhabooze- so thats morahrach, her hubby, and i’ll be #3 :D, i dont like shabbos napping. Well, now we know shabbos naps ARE underrated!January 23, 2013 4:16 pm at 4:16 pm #924870dotnetterMember
