Name three mobile phone operating systems besides Android.
Feivel: Incorrect. The 1800 and 1900 elections were held in non-leap years.
Feivel: not correct…
List all the other times Sam and Joseph agree.
“Name three mobile phone operating systems besides Android.”
iOS, BlackBerry, Symbian.
I’m not sure Sam and joseph agree here.
jospeh cant possibly be referring to Christian leap years. when he says “non-leap years” he obviously means Jewish ones
So, the elections of 1800 and 1900 did not take place in leap years and only part of the first US Presidential election took place in a leap year. January 1-10, 1789 was not in a leap year.
CTL, you knew all those exact dates without google? Is your middle name Encyclopedia? 😉
When did U.S. presidential elections first take place all in one day?
I did not use Google. I am a history buff. My BA degree is in US History. As for the exact dates of the election, I merely referred to my teaching notes. This is a piece of trivia I use in one of the courses I teach in US Government at a local college.
Federal Election Day was fixed as the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November in 1845. 1848 was the first Presidential election held on that date.
BTW>>>not all local/state elections are held in November. Here in CT there are still some municipalities with elections in March, but that is soon to e a thing of the past and we’ll have a unified date.
DY: That you can feed tuna to a brain-dead person.
DY: The joke is that it’s the only thing that R’ Schachter and R’ Tendler agree upon. (Because R’ Tendler holds that tuna is Treif but since he’s dead, he’s dead.)
They also agree that tuna melts are assur.
DY: Ooh, that’s a good one!
BTW, what’s his issue with tuna?
DY: He holds that there is no real Hashgacha on them and that there is a serious Chashash that dolphin or some other Treif fish is mixed in with the shredded tuna in the cans.
So it’s only canned tuna.
Is he okay with the ones with hashgacha temidis?
Because if his only issue is with the regular OU tuna, we’ve actually found something I agree with him on.
DY: Is there tuna with a Hashgacha Temidis? Part of the problem is that they call people out to Indonesia or wherever as Mashgichim once every few months and so they have ample warning.
Of course there is. Dagim, King of the Sea, Gefen, Mishpacha, etc., plus the OUP tuna.
