    If not for that principle we could not remain religious in diaspora. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

    15.6″ 16:9 is a horrible screen size, it is only a few mm taller than old 14.1″ 16:10.

    The best screen size is 15.4″ 16:10.

    Get 17.3″ if you really want a big screen. Only get 15.6″ if it is 1920×1080 or higher.

    If you’re doing 3D or graphics work a Gaming Computer with its powerful 3D graphics might work out. You may also consider a Business Laptop, those have powerful processors and sometimes workstation 3D graphics. Business Laptops also have superior build quality, better construction, durability, and designs than normal or gaming laptops.

    If you’re just doing office or internet work you don’t need powerful 3D graphics and the basic stuff will be fine.

    Open “Orthodoxy” makes Modern Orthodox look like Chareidim.

    in reply to: who won the final Presidential Debate? #1187642

    DikDukDuck
    Participant

    In my opinion

    Trump hasn’t performed well in any of the debates. In the second debate he did do a good job appearing gentlemanly by apologizing for his comments and giving Hillary praise.

    By not performing well I mean Trump hasn’t presented his policies as clearly (more like not at all) as Hillary. Hillary obviously prepares for the debates beforehand as all her lines sound good and scripted – but Trump’s improvise-style seems to pull (or dumb down) the debate into a dimension Hillary didn’t prepare her. Trump didn’t leave her speechless much but he did elicit a lot of gawky expressions from her. Count how many times Hillary the professional smiled like an insulted teenager in an internet fight.

    These are just my observations and frankly I don’t like either of them. I like Pence more than Kaine though.

    zahavasdad: Around 1990 Ford stopped building squares. If it’s not a square it looks pretty modern and some people will see “Lincoln” and trigger their ayin hara.

    I also don’t see anything impractical about such handbags.

    Maybe their Coach or Michael Kors bag or “luxury” items are simply practical. I know a jobless family of 6 who drive a Lincoln Town Car. Wanna know why? The parents understand the concepts of inexpensive, functional, and reliable transportation, which the Town Car provides.

    The car is 23 years old by the way, so it’s hardly special anymore, but if all you can see is the luxury nameplate and not the context that’s all you need to judge what people should or should not have! Don’t forget price depreciation! Practical premiums of yesteryear get cheap fast.

    I used to think he had a chance at winning but I don’t think anyone will vote for him now. Trump supporters of the other religion will probably vote for Cruz.

    Even if Trump wins I doubt Congress will let him do anything anyway.

    Turning away refugees is wrong in my opinion.

    Bringing in terrorists is also wrong.

    Blindly believing that no terrorists could infiltrate along with the masses and making up laws that weaken the USA’s border policy is wrong.

    The Israeli government proudly advertises their state as the only liberal democratic state in the Middle East, which is why I call it an American state and not a Jewish state. Israel is the only country with truly modern ideals in the Middle East. Its mere existence as a modern democratic state is, actually I dunno how useful or beneficial it is, but it’s a nice thing. Israel should be called West in the Middle East.

    Israel is a touchy subject for liberals, since it’s hard to support a country perceived as oppressing its occupants, or should I say oppressing who it OCCUPIES, heheheh.

    Also, being liberals, it wouldn’t be fair to go on and on about Israel without giving the same attention to every other American ally. Like, there are liberals who think in this silly way, for example, they can’t eat their favorite pizza without eating every other type of pizza too, just to be fair, and not oppress the other pizzas. If you ask me it’s just the immature among the left who think, or don’t think, like that. I’m sure there are some smart people in the left, just like I’m sure there are some smart conservatives.

    Culture and society don’t promote male beauty, so men with long hair probably wouldn’t feel the need to care about half the styling cares had by our society’s women.

    Also is the three year a staple of being Jewish? because I don’t find it very practical (and two year old me doesn’t look good in a ponytail). It can be cute on little kids but I think the more hair a kid has flying around, the more prone he is to related accidents.

    @golfer:

    I’m worried that there is a sizable chance that my kinderlach will end up being short because of that. I’m not sure what to think since I wouldn’t want to spread any vertical challenges to others.

    And it is possible to become not overweight, but current culture’s most favored method is not exactly in line with yiddishkeit (the gym).

    I like speed, which is only half the thrill of a wooden coaster and 1/10th the thrill of a modern coaster, so roller coasters aren’t really my thing. I’ve discovered I don’t like the feeling of falling.

    If we made things assur just because the goys did them we’d be pretty stuck, so I don’t like that logic.

    If a fellow Jew loaned you $2000 and you were supposed to pay him back six months ago you sound like the type who would have payed him back six months ago.

    I suppose if something comes up and you urgently need $2000, guilt him into giving it back?
