oh, and squeak, i just noticed your new subtitle. who do you now communicate with besides dolphins? J____h’s? 🙂
how did you calculate that? also, did you expect that more than 10% were deleted? I woulda thunk it would be less.
Or stop using Jewish medical referral networks like ECHO, which save heimishe lives every day, because they do
not sure how ECHO made it in there, ECHO is definitely not a reform or reconstructionist organization. It was founded and is run by very chashuver frum people.
Today, the YWN Coffee Room has hit 300,000 comments.
My thoughts? lots of really really addicted people here, present company included.
I’ll also answer for Jothar (I hope he doesn’t mind): ka-ching X 300,000.
hmm, maybe we should start an Occupy CR movement to demand that we 99 percenters get our fare share of those ka-chings! 🙂

Nechoma..I didn’t make that stuff up, I just cut and pasted it. but don’t worry I don’t cut or paste anyone in elevators…I’m not the one who runs around with scissors and all my glue spilled on route 9.December 1, 2011 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm in reply to: It's time for the Imas to save our children from the Nile again. #831484
wow, i thought some other sites were treif because they bash all rabbonim with a wide brush and blame them for all the world’s problems, and that YWN was better than them all because they don’t allow this trash.
Then I read aries comments and wonder if this site is any better than the site allegedly belonging to ______h
Where’s the chasenah being held?
why in the world would you want to know where a poster’s sister’s wedding will be????
popa_bar_abba- don’t you think you’re being a little over the top?!
denim…please tell me you saw popa’s subtitle…
PBT…the stalkers don’t need smartphones to track you..they can track you right here in the CR! oops! we weren’t supoposed to talk about that anymore were we? 🙂
you know you’re getting old when….oh wait! what was I about to say? ummm, this is embarrassing! ummm, never mind!
mazel tov goq! May your great sense of humor feed our addictions for many years to come!
you gotta change your subtitle! A certain forbidden name is mentioned therein.
soliek, why get involved with annoying facts if one is perfectly happy with their preconceived notions?
If Senator _____h Lieberman is in the news for any reason we won’t be able to discuss it either.
(you guys really fooled?)
trolls can spot other trolls much quicker than the rest of us can.
Mosheh Rabbeinu and Dovid went to war based on a command from Hashem. When tzahal gets a navi or an urim vetumim then we can compare. Until then you’re comparing apples to oranges.
And even if they did somehow get themseves a navi…when Moshe Rabbeinu or Dovid Hamelech went to war, it was announced that anyone who had built a new house or got married etc should go home. They then announced that anyone who is afraid should go home. Chazal tell us that this refers to people who were afraid that they won’t have siyata dishmaya because they had done aveiros. In other words only tzadikim gemurim went to war.
When you find someone on that level then we can discuss your question. For the rest of us who aren’t there yet, they don’t belong on the battle field, even if tzahal had a navi directing them.December 1, 2011 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm in reply to: Do you still get childish impulses to do silly things? #1060054
you are hysterical!

Funny Things To Do On An Elevator
1) CRACK open your briefcase or handbag, peer Inside and ask “Got enough air in there?”
2) STAND silent and motionless in the corner facing the wall without getting off.
3) WHEN arriving at your floor, grunt and strain to yank the doors open, then act as if you’re embarrassed when they open themselves.
4) GREET everyone with a warm handshake and ask him or her to call you Admiral.
5) MEOW occasionally.
6) STARE At another passenger for a while. Then announce in horror: “You’re one of THEM” – and back away slowly
7) SAY -DING at each floor.
8) SAY “I wonder what all these do?” And push all the red buttons.
9) MAKE explosion noises when anyone presses a button.
10) STARE, grinning at another passenger for a while, then announce: “I have new socks on.”
11) WHEN the elevator is silent, look around and ask: “Is that your beeper?”
12) TRY to make personal calls on the emergency phone.
13) DRAW a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers: “This is my personal space.”
14) WHEN there’s only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder, then pretend it wasn’t you.
15) PUSH the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
16) ASK if you can push the button for other people but push the wrong ones.
17) HOLD the doors open and say you’re waiting for your friend. After a while, let the doors close and say “Hi Greg, How’s your day been?”
18) DROP a pen and wail until someone reaches to help pick it up, then scream: “That’s mine!”
19) BRING a camera and take pictures of everyone in the lift.
20) PRETEND you’re a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the Passengers.
21) SWAT at flies that don’t exist.November 30, 2011 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm in reply to: Do you still get childish impulses to do silly things? #1060051
I want one time to ride the city bus and have my cell phone ring but pull out a banana and answer it and have a very serious conversation on my banana phone. See the reactions. ha ha
I know someone who actually did the phone thing on the bus. Just instead of using a banana he talked into his shoe! (as in get smart).
there are women mods though I know that for a fact.
ummm, is that why you haven’t been posting much lately?
you are correct, coffee addict. Mazel tov on your 4th!
wow, mine turned 4 in July and I didn’t even notice or celebrate this major milestone. 🙂
because the israeli army is not fighting against helenism as the maccabees did. What exactly is the similarity between the maccabees and the IDF?
I am one of those clumsy, 2 left feet, un-geshikteh people out there but when my children see Tatty putting up a sukkah and doing mitzvos MYSELF, even though it is hard (and sometimes embarrassing) they are priceless lessons my children will learn.
The trick is to do it first thing in the morning (while you’re still sober).
All kidding aside, +1 for that post! I agree that the chinuch of it is priceless!
makes “His own list” that he charges the restaurants to be on.
does the price of being on the list go up as the restaurant gets older?
Oops! Wrong thread! Never mind!
I didn’t read all the posts on this thread, so please excuse me if I’m being repetitive.
I think that all restaurant owners are guilty of extortion. If I’m walking by and I’m hungry but don’t have money on me they won’t give me a free meal. Don’t restaurants exist to feed people? And if I’m thirsty they’ll sell me a can of coke for $2. Extortion! In walmart I can get a dozen cans of coke for not much more than $2.
I’m surprised that you didn’t ask how females can be mods being that they aren’t even Jewish!
to all those who blame all the financial issues mentioned by the OP on a kollel lifestyle, I just want to make sure I understand you clearly. You are saying that most people who didn’t go to kollel make over $150K per year and can manage fine, right? None of them are unemployed, correct? Most of the forclosures in the US are kollel families, right? Maybe you can try taking your blinders off for just a day?
to the OP – you bring up a very valid issue, but what to you suggest, especially concerning the private school part? Do you advocate frum people sending their kids to public school? Yeah, I know that in past generations people did that and their kids turned out to be fine ehrliche yidden. But the public schools then didn’t have drugs and guns and they didn’t include immorality in the curriculum. Just minor differences, I know.
Personally I think what would help a lot is if there was an independent fundraising organization similar to oorah (think annual auction, kars for kids, cucumber communications etc) which would raise millions for tuition assistance for those who don’t make 150K or 200K. This way the entire tuition bill doesn’t fall on them and at the same time the yeshivos will be better able to pay their rebbeim on time. I have to believe that aside from the financial advantages, it can only be good for kids to have parents and rebbeim who are less stressed – I would really expect the OTD population to grow at a slower rate. I have no proof for that but it seems logical, I think.
And before anyone jumps down my throat, I said I think this would help a lot, not that it would completely solve the problem.November 28, 2011 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm in reply to: Whats my problem I can't keep CR members straight? #1037168
always, just think a zig zag sweater and always trying unsuccessfully to kick a football…
naive teenagers. And naive parents who let said naive teenagers roam free because a site with the word yeshiva in it’a name must be safe, right? Wrong!
I understand what you’re saying that each person needs to watch themselves. However remember there are teens here! See my response to you on the same concept –>here<–
With AYC, he didn’t just say that people should be careful but not paranoid. He kept saying that its no problem if you let out bits and pieces of info about your identity and don’t worry about it. I asked him at least 3 times why he’s not concerned about people linking the bits of info to figure out who someone is and he always beat around the bush and didn’t answer that.
Sigh. Jothar, are you sure?! Oh, no. And, if you’re certain that it’s true, is he capable of doing anything now, or is he under control?
observanteen, no need to panic. Chances are he doesn’t know who you are but even if he does, the main thing is to remember that EVERYONE on this site is a stranger and if any poster emails you or calls you DO NOT respond. Even if that poster seems like a teen who is just like you (I’m assuming from your SN that you’re a teen) who you’d love to know in real life. Or even if they seem like a chashuver very frum kind nice sensitive and trustworthy adult. And besides ignoring it, perhaps it would be good to forward it to the mods or editor – I’ll leave it to them to comment whether they want that or not.

that negative despicable title wasn’t there until a millisecond before you saw it and it disappeared a millisecond after it went off your screen. 🙂
Of course its a word – am I in the habit of using unwords?
Avram in MD: +1
hmmm… interesting exchange of current private emails between CR posters >>>>>> ?!?!!
I know *I* don’t exchange *private* emails with other posters from the CR… does anyone else?!
Jothar explained how that came about –> here: <–
Coffee Addict, I know Joseph personally because he , through an accomplice who worked for ywn, got hold of my personal email and started emailing me. I am not the only one.
the wedding could not have been yet…I didn’t get an invitation! also she said that after the wedding she’s going to some really far away place where they haven’t discovered the internet yet. 🙂
I never thought someone would praise someone else for giving deep cuts constantly
It’s stranger than that – read the OP again. He wasn’t praising someone. He was praising a rock for giving him deep cuts!
I agree that you’re awesome!
Charlie brown by saying that you’ll be suspected of chilling down the oilom so your not made suspicious….lol
You got me!
I assume you eat ice cream on motzei shabbos?
squeak, welcome back! is slangily a real word or did you just make it up? I like it!
From a personal experience- what should have been a 4 hour drive for one date turned into an 8 hour drive due to an accident with numerous fatalities. What should have been a 30 minute drive to the location I was taking her to, turned into a 2 hour drive, also due to the traffic. I asked her if we could go out to eat since I hadn’t eaten in 12 hours but she refused saying that she ate already. (I was asking from a humanitarian point of view, not a social point of view.)
Anyway- she told the shadchan that I’m slow, rude (for yawning too much and for suggesting that we go to eat so late at night) and some other “compliments” to show her gratitude for wasting 36 hours and $150+ on her.
The shadchan never called back with any other suggestions (no big loss). Don’t you think a more appropriate approach would have been to call my Rebbe or family Rav to see if I’m always like this, or maybe I just wasn’t myself due to the circumstances?
Dr. Pepper, I thought you were out of shidduch stories but this one takes the cake! Wow, sorry you had to go thru that but on the other hand in a way its good it happened – it made you discover quickly that she’s not a mentch.
perhaps mod72 can get you some fermented plum juice instead.
