    Suggestion: Delete the drivers for the relevant hardware.
    (If reversibility is desired, note their location, back them up on something, and
    give it to someone who wouldn’t know what to do with them to hold on to.)

    (Sure, it’s possible to get new drivers off the Internet or another laptop
    with the same hardware, but you’d first need to know that was the issue
    and then also have access to one of those sources.)

    I heard until 9 min after shkia

    This is Reb Moshe’s shita about washing for Shalosh Seudos,
    according to Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen (The Radiance of Shabbos).

    in reply to: Leftest are reshoem? #1900606

    but I think AOC basically summed it up recently when she commented how being morally right was more important than being factually correct. If it seems right and feels right, it is right. And when you base your morals on whatever your gut feeling is

    I looked this up, and it’s a misrepresentation. She wasn’t saying that it’s
    more important for a given statement to be morally than factually correct,
    she was commenting on people focusing more on fact-checking her than
    on whether her positions are right.

    “If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees,” she said. I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right.”

    Cortez said being “morally right” is more important than being “factually right” and that whenever she makes “a mistake” it is not the same thing as President Trump “lying about immigrants.”

    “But being factually correct is important,” Cooper told her.

    “It’s absolutely important,” Ocasio-Cortez agreed. “And whenever I make a mistake. I say, “Okay, this was clumsy.” And then I restate what my point was. But it’s not the same thing as the president lying about immigrants. It’s not the same thing, at all.”

    (Isn’t there an anti-duplication feature in place?)

    Edit:
    Never mind, those posts weren’t identical. Post 1 included
    “(Also, Hashem’s standards for conviction are very demanding.)”
    while post 2 did not, and post 2 added a bit about non-fatal violence.

    in reply to: Shalom Bayis Pamphlet in Aramaic #1900575

    Many years ago I saw a pamphlet in Lakewood about shalom bayis, written in Aramaic
    (the author stated that it was in Aramaic so women wouldn’t be able to read it).

    That made me laugh. Thanks.

    First of all, increasing numbers of women today ARE learning talmud…

    He said it was “many years ago.” Even today, I doubt
    those women are marrying BMG kollel men.

    Secondly, for those that don’t, Google Translate…

    Google Translate (unsurprisingly) does not feature Aramaic.

    P.S. What kind of jerk wouldn’t want yidden to share information on Shalom
    Bayis with their wives or beschert?? Is that some special thing in Lakewood??

    This might be related to the idea I’ve seen expressed by Rabbi Akiva Tatz
    that if both parties in an arrangement focus on their obligations to the other,
    it will work out well for them, but if they focus on the other’s obligations to
    them, there will be strife.
    (Rabbi Shalom Arush has separate books on the topic for men and women,
    with requests for each not to read the one not intended for them.)

    in reply to: Name a Gadol That Endorsed Biden #1900573

    To all those who go ballistic when trump’s name is mentioned need to realized Hashem
    is in charge. He wanted trump in and you are wrong to have tainas on HKBH.

    When you find out who Hashem has chosen as our president, you shut up and accept this, and everything else He does with love. Try accepting that what you want is worth nothing against what Hashem has deemed to be best for you. Stop fighting Him. Let it go.

    You could say the same about anyone in any position of power. That Hashem
    put them there doesn’t mean they were a good choice by any standard or
    that they didn’t do terrible things that Hashem decided were necessary.

    trending stunts

    Like phonebooth stuffing, goldfish-swallowing, and flagpole sitting?

    in reply to: Leftest are reshoem? #1900570

    As one who has personally observed a few leftists in their
    natural habitat, I’ve documented two distinct types.

    Are there other types you haven’t documented,
    or are you saying all leftism is pathological?

    in reply to: Leftest are reshoem? #1900569

    We now know – why Hashem only wants the Death Penalty.
    The other punishments aren’t Sustainable!

    The article appears in the UMKC Law Review, Vol. 87:1.
    “In recent years, there has been a growing bipartisan consensus that the uniquely
    American policy of mass incarceration is both fiscally and morally unsustainable.”

    I didn’t know Hashem wanted the death penalty for everyone found in
    possession of a certain amount of an illegal substance, any perpetrator
    of non-fatal violence, etc.
    “While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world’s
    population, it houses around 22 percent of the world’s prisoners.”
    Does that sound reasonable? (Is this the most criminal country?)

    in reply to: Nebulizers on Shabbos #1895396

    Hmmm. A guide to halachos about hospitals on Shabbos that I saw this past
    week didn’t seem to go that way at all, so I guess we don’t pasken that way?

    How did topic/jewish-music-3 end up being an earlier thread than topic/jewish-music-2?

    in reply to: Jewish music #1893575

    Who says “Jewish music” is a real concept, anyway?

    in reply to: Jewish music #1893574

    Idea:
    A set of notes at given time intervals has inherent positive/negative qualities.
    If true, there is no way to change the quality.

    vs

    Idea:
    A set of notes at given time intervals has positive/negative qualities
    based on who wrote it, regardless of the actual notes and intervals.
    If true, someone can later rewrite it the same way and take over.

    (I left lyrics out of it.)

    Also, can we please uncouple the idea of morally/spiritually
    good and bad music with whether the music is “Jewish?”

    will be no effect in the result (such as handwriting of lesser quality from

    “Q clearance or Q access authorization is the Department of Energy (DOE) security clearance required to access Top Secret Restricted Data, Formerly Restricted Data, and National Security Information, as well as Secret Restricted Data.” -Wikipedia.

    “Lots of nonsense that could mean literally anything” is how DEEP STATE actors
    with ties to SOROS and the CLINTON FOUNDATION describe… Yeah, it’s baloney.
    The style is actually ingenious in the way it lets people get invested in it, though.

    jewishguitarchords .com also seems to be a thing.

    Some of the theories on the origin of the virus, if true, is straight out of Torah.

    Does anyone know of a company/organization similar to Hatzalah in Lakewood?

    in reply to: Switching sides #1891597

    accusations that [Trump] is a racist are simply not supported by any evidence

    Oh, come on. Argue a conclusion one way or another, but no supporting evidence?

    in reply to: If you’re curious about the board game “Bavli,” here you go #1877681

    So basically the comments sections of online Judaica stores…
    Are those usually active (for any product)? I wouldn’t expect them to be.

    in reply to: If you’re curious about the board game “Bavli,” here you go #1877354

    Where do you usually go for reviews of Jewish games?

    Are you sure it’s being published by ArtScroll and not just distributed by them?

    What’s up with thread URLs ending in “__trashed-##” ?

    in reply to: Why are the rioters overwhelmingly white? #1876808

    The white protesters are, almost universally, young people. They’re the product of an
    overly indulgent society, where personal responsibility is not the ideal, self-gratification is.

    Yep, just look at them self-gratifying out there on the street.

    But never told anyone to stop looting.

    As we all know, the way to stop looting is to say “Looter no looting!” 3 times in quick succession.

    Does the data support systemic police racism?

    To some extent. If an AI can tell the race of a driver from the transcript of a traffic stop
    (with all non-racial factors for disparity ruled out), then you’ve got to wonder, eh?

    That “Yoshe Kalb” has nothing to do with the story of about a Yoshe Kalb in
    Rabbi Dr. Twerski’s The Zeide Reb Motele, if anyone else is curious.

    in reply to: Being a Ger and BT #1861337

    1. As some have already pointed out, the story is somewhat strange.
    2. There’s been no response from the OP after starting the thread.
    3. The OP’s name is the username of a well-known person on another platform.
    4. On the other hand, the OP’s account was not created very recently.

    Led by bill gates who has been talking for many years about spreading a virus for depopulation or just depopulation in general. He had a hand in creating one of these viruses on 2015 as well.

    Bill Gates was involved in creating a virus? News to me.
