    it shall be permissible for a school bus owned, used or hired by a public or
    nonpublic school to park at any time, including overnight, upon any street or roadway

    Then it qualifies that it’s not really any street or roadway.

    Are you saying I should cast my vote on the basis of someone’s ethnicity?

    No.

    He’s asking (not saying) whether it’s assur to vote for someone who is an oved avodah zarah (regardless of ethnicity).

    I think a subset of available men (full-time learners) are more prized culturally, so a larger population of women are trying to be matched with a smaller population of men from the outset.

    That would partially shift the disparity to one subset, and presumably help a different subset. It wouldn’t change the overall numbers.

    And the potential for a man to be matched decreases with age more slowly than for a woman.

    Again, that doesn’t change the numbers, it just makes it even worse because it increases the age gap, and makes it even harder for women in a certain age group.

    The population growth rates being thrown around here, however, are inflated by an order of magnitude

    What do you think it really is?

    and it is highly unlikely that a 2-3 year marriage age gap within this growth regime alone is the primary reason men get significantly more shidduch opportunities than women.

    I guess that depends what the growth rate is…

    Also, if older men frequently marry younger women, as you implied, that would make the gap even higher.

    In other words, you agree that it will create a disparity in the number of available boys vs. girls, just that it might not reach “crisis” levels? Okay, I’ll buy that.

    Assuming the “crisis” is attributable to growth rate alone

    Not alone, combined with age gap.

    I don’t think you’re actually arguing, I think he didn’t mean “proportionally” the way you think he did.

    You set up 50 boys and 60 girls as an illustration of the shidduch crisis, and then lectured Syag that she doesn’t understand basic statistics? Lolol. The typical age gap in marriage is not 40 years.

    Are those 110 singles in the room the age at which they and their friends are starting shidduchim, or are most of their peers already married?

    Sure an age gap in marriage in an increasing population is one potential factor at play, but I seriously doubt that it is anywhere near the primary driver for the larger number of single women.

    Why wouldn’t it be? What would be a bigger factor?

    There’s a very simple way to solve the shidduch crisis. Create venues for Boys & Girls to meet. Until we put “nature” back into the picture the crisis will never be solved.

    But seriously – what exactly is so wrong with this, other than the general issur of smoking that so many people seem to not agree with?

    Yeshivos shouldn’t be promoting nivul birshus haTorah. It’s a crying shame that our society has deteriorated to the extent that this yeshiva (and at least one other that I know of) feels it can only successfully raise funds by appealing to the nefesh habehamis, but they need to resist the urge and not give their haskama to the rampant pursuit of extreme gashmius which has pervaded increasingly growing parts of frum society.

    The cost / benefit ratio is off the charts astronomical cost for negligible to no gain.

    In s speech given in 2009 (I believe), Senator Shumer boasted of a 360 mile barrier constructed as part of comprehensive border control to prevent illegal immigration.

    He didn’t think it was money wasted then…

    If the Tzaar is enough to move you out of your house, you’re Lechatchila allowed to move out of the Sukkah.

    But you aren’t really mitztaer. It’s a fraud.

    So when he told us about the whole Makifin Debinah and gave us Tzar, he didn’t cause us to lose out on fulfilling the Mitzvah of living in a Sukkah (another Mashal – if I keep you up all night, was I mevatel your Mitzvah of living in a Sukkah?)

    It’s more like he set up a hose on the schach to make it rain, or stole your blankets, etc.

    Also, if “Makifin Debinah” is a real cause for p’tur, and Hashem didn’t want us to sleep in the sukkah, he wouldn’t have given us that part of the mitzvah. It’s like you guys are reading the Chumash and/or Shulchan Aruch upside down. It’s a perversion of the Torah.

    Also, you’re not really mitztaer. It’s a fraud.

    But if you look in the Eishel Avraham of Butchach (to 339:3), he doesn’t say that we dance and clap for Tosfos’ reason. He says that we dance and sing on Shabbos because of Simchas Shabbos, and it’s Mashma from him that we’d be allowed to dance and clap even in the Gemara’s time (when we were Baki in making a Kli Shir). I’m almost positive the Minchas Elazar says the same thing.

    I assume they mean that we can rely on Tosafos b’makom mitzvah, but if that’s what they mean, they mean the gezeirah never included that (I think Yalkut Yosef says that). They certainly don’t hold you can be mechallel Shabbos for Simchas Shabbos.

    Either way, it fits with the normal klalei hp’sak. Not sleeping in the sukkah clearly doesn’t.

    From your wording you seem to be disagreeing with my “tayna”, yet in the end it doesn’t seem so. Were you perhaps a little unclear in replying to a quote, or did I just get it wrong?

    Your tayna was that sleeping in the house doesn’t enhance the mitzvah of sleeping in the sukkah. If I understood username correctly, it somehow enhances the mitzvah of תשבו because he he appreciates the sukkah more when he eats there. So it is more analogous to his misunderstanding of the clapping issue than you gave him credit for.

    Nevertheless, it still doesn’t make sense, and isn’t analogous to the clapping issue, which isn’t about being mechallel Shabbos (ch”v) to enhance Shabbos at all.
