I would like to take a poll to see how old most coffee-roomers are. What year were you born?January 27, 2014 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #1000920
I was born the year my parents moved into a house after leaving the “Old West Side”January 27, 2014 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #1000921TheGoqParticipant
Syag my father A”H used to take drives with his friend through the old west side on Tisha B’av lzecher the churban.January 27, 2014 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm #1000922☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Which gilgul?January 27, 2014 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #1000923
We did that too but not on tisha b’av. They now have bus tours every tisha b’av that go there.January 28, 2014 12:18 am at 12:18 am #1000924
this isn’t exactly what i had in mindJanuary 28, 2014 12:28 am at 12:28 am #1000925WIYMember

I was born during the 58th century.January 28, 2014 4:56 am at 4:56 am #1000927Little FroggieMember
One of the rules of this hallowed place is not to pry personal information out of others. Most coffee-roomers would like to remain anonymous, not having their ANY private details revealed – me included. (of course one may choose to do so at their own peril, that is their own undoing).
That being said, I think Froggies are not born.January 28, 2014 5:54 am at 5:54 am #1000928HaLeiViParticipant
They are hit.January 28, 2014 6:46 am at 6:46 am #1000929jewishfeminist02Member
With regard to privacy, I think birth year is a pretty safe one.January 28, 2014 6:55 am at 6:55 am #1000930☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Jfem, alone, yes. With other details, or even posting style, it might give it away to a friend or relative.January 28, 2014 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm #1000931
so not one jew is willing to reveal his or her year of birth?
I think you were given a couple clear reasons why people would be hesitant.January 28, 2014 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #1000932midwesternerParticipant
Notice that even JF, who thinks it would be harmless, did not share her birth year. And you too, the OP, did not reveal yours.January 28, 2014 3:05 pm at 3:05 pm #1000933popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Fine, I’ll share. I don’t mind.

1914. No denying I’m the oldest in the coffeeroom!January 28, 2014 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1000935
First 0012, then 102, 1020, 1200, 1222, 1322, 1422, 1522, 1622, 1722, 1822, 1922, 1962.January 28, 2014 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #1000936
Interesting, we still still don’t have a huge sample, but so far, aside from PBA, the chevra here is a bit older than I would have expected. We also have a yid (a rebyid) who recalls all of his gilgulim. See, this is an interesting study.January 28, 2014 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #1000937yaakov doeParticipant

I was born on my birthday.January 28, 2014 3:56 pm at 3:56 pm #1000939
I might have left some out or forgotten the exact years.January 28, 2014 4:28 pm at 4:28 pm #1000940nishtdayngesheftParticipant
Next threads will be your mother’s maiden name and the last 4 digits of your social security number. After that we will have to get creative.January 28, 2014 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #1000941yaakov doeParticipant
nishtdayngesheft – That’s a great idea!January 28, 2014 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1000942

49scl, please explain what you are talking about.January 30, 2014 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #1000950
It is interesting that even BoruchSchwartz did not reveal his birth year (and even if he [or anyone else, for that matter] did, there is no telling if it is true [like popa: 1996, right!])
Born: Feb. 30, 2016January 30, 2014 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #1000951
Who is this BoruchSchwartz anyway? When you go to his profile, you get “User not found.”

Where, not who.January 30, 2014 3:55 pm at 3:55 pm #1000953
Who, not where!
Click on his/her name, which should take you to his/her profile page, and you will see that there is no such member! Is he J…???January 30, 2014 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #1000954
Hey, a lot of things start with J. No, he isn’t Jellybeans. But what I meant was that he’s a real person but he’s not really on the CR.January 30, 2014 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #1000955notasheepMember
This is all very mysterious… unless he has bribed one of the mods to hide his identity, or maybe his profile was removed after his last post, which was a day ago, before anyone tried to go to his profile…
Anyway if you want to know the year of my birth, it is 1892. I’m either very old, or a ghost. You choose.January 30, 2014 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1000956Shopping613 🌠Participant
Maybe he was blocked and came back as a gilgul….poor guy, leave him aloneJanuary 30, 2014 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1000957twistedParticipant

I was born in 1200 bce, deep in the forests of west Germany. My father made pickles and my mother drank beer. We laughed and sang and cried deep into the night.
Then I disappeared and reappeared in the CR.
