    We ignore anything with the word “modern” in it.

    in reply to: Which filter should I get #2211645

    I’ve been using Techloq for a few years on my computer, and I’m very happy. Never noticed any major slowing down of the computer. Mainly I like that they are very discerning. On many pages they’ll gray over skin tones in images instead of just always blocking the entire page. Also if a page is blocked you can request to have it unblocked, and usually they’ll respond within 10 minutes. So often I’ll request to unblock a YouTube video, and they’ll approve it, and their technology blocks all the other images and videos on the YouTube page.

    I’ll Whatsapp you the reasons later.

    And lekavod Shabbos it’s my absolute pleasure to pay $7 for that little square dish containing 3.5 tablespoons of flavored mayonnaise which cost the takeout 59 cents to make.

    in reply to: Shabbos dips #2185373

    Oh, where to start? I love them all!
    Dill flavored mayonnaise
    Olive flavored mayonnaise
    Onion flavored mayonnaise
    Eggplant flavored mayonnaise
    Pickle flavored mayonnaise
    Mushroom flavored mayonnaise
    and so many more!

    in reply to: Beautiful Men #2182919

    R’ Yochanan would sit there so the women would see his handsome face. We can assume, however, that he didn’t leave open the top 3 buttons on his shirt, or wear “yira’eh kol zechurcha” pants, to expose other attractive body parts.
    Also, obviously, we are talking about a Tanna. We are treading on dangerous ground when we start to compare ourselves to Tannaim.
    There is a reason why it is largely left to the Rishonim to derive practical halacha from the Gemara.

    in reply to: ‘Eat like Chazal’ #2182683

    Also remember, there were no antibiotics back then. So if you get a serious infection, well… you’ll really lose a lot of weight.

    in reply to: Should girls wait for older sisters to get married? #2177188

    VThe reason given by many for making a younger sibling wait for an older one is that it’s hurtful to the older sibling to see their younger sibling get married first.
    But what I can’t understand is, what kind of sick and selfish person would be ok with leaving their younger brother or sister in limbo like that, possibly for years?
    And I just love it when I read about those “selfless” siblings who give their “permission” for their younger siblings to skip them. Who the heck are they to give or withhold permission? Are they the parent?

    in reply to: Storing tefillin in car #2176967

    I don’t know about the parshiyos, but the leather definitely can be affected by heat. In the past I’ve seen the retzuos become sticky and start sticking to each other.
    I’ve found that leaving the car windows open a crack and putting the tefillin under a couple of layers (i.e. your jacket) will keep the tefillin safe.

    First we gave up having real relationships and talking to people in real life for chatting with people in cyberspace. Now we’re going to cut out talking to humans altogether and just chat with robots…

    And what makes you think that the jury system is, according to the Torah or for that matter by any standard, a just system? A system in which a panel of civilians, unversed in any laws and of unknown ethics and morals, decides the fate of the accused?
    A system in which people are convicted, in essence, by a poll?

    in reply to: expensive foods #2158299

    There is no problem with affluent people spending according to their means. There are many examples given in the Gemara of wealthy people living lavishly, and they aren’t criticized usually.
    The problem is the less affluent pretending to be affluent, and living accordingly.

    in reply to: Stupid Planes #2155474

    Wow, this thread is still alive….
    Zaphod, I’m sorry I mistyped a letter.
    And I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings. But while people obviously don’t come into the CR to make constructive use of their time, they also don’t want to completely waste their time. And posting nonsensical topics meaning and saying nothing does waste the time of those who click on it.

    Funny how it’s none of the business of the hashgachos what goes on in the establishments they are certifying, but it’s everyone’s business how a hashgacha runs its own business.

    in reply to: Have you ever received a traffic ticket that you did not deserve? #2133786

    I got pulled over while driving with my wife. Cop says we weren’t wearing seat belts. In fact we were. We went to court, hoping somehow we’d get lucky. We didn’t. Cop showed up and lied through his teeth. Cost us almost $400 and I think some points. Welcome to traffic court, where you are guilty until proven innocent.
    How insane is this system that with no evidence but the cop’s word, you get fined hundreds of dollars?
    If there had been an anti-cop riot going on then, I likely would’ve considered joining in.

    in reply to: Junkyard World #2133120

    It’s called capitalism in a secular world. People try to fill the void in their souls with toys and senseless distractions, and other people are happy to make money by making those things, so they themselves can afford to buy their own toys. And so on…

    in reply to: At first I thought, what are the Libs thinking (or are they?) #2126595

    You can have all the sympathy in the world for these poor people, but facts are facts. And the fact is that the United States is a sovereign country with laws. The US government’s job is to enforce those laws, and anyone entering the country illegally is breaking those laws. So as far as the government is concerned there would be nothing wrong with putting illegal aliens on buses and dropping them off right across the border.
    Another point: I don’t think the immigrants who were shipped to Massachusetts were victimized. Governor Desantis said they have signed consent forms, and the immigrants were provided an actual map of where they were going. But even if everything the hysterical left said was true, and the Venezuelans were lied to, this doesn’t automatically make it wrong. The border towns are dealing with a massive crisis, and if they think that doing could help spur action, then they have every right to do this.

    in reply to: Shidduchem in 2022 #2123830

    If only that were true. Most young people’s shiduchim are handled by their parents, and the sad fact is that they often are unrealistic in where they are looking and what they are looking for.

    in reply to: Help with my literacy please #2123828

    I suggest you simply read. Read English books, newspapers, whatever. You don’t need to learn to write like Shakespeare, you just need to be able to write simple and coherent sentences. For that you simply need more exposure to English writing.

    in reply to: Paskez Chew chews and other extinct nosh photos #2123604

    While I understand the nostalgia aspect of people wanting Chew Chews to come back, I would oppose it if only because there is enough dreck being put out, no needs a reason to eat more candy.

    in reply to: Shidduchem in 2022 #2123596

    I put the OP’s letter through Google Translate, and I think this is what he’s trying to say, or at least the parts I understand:
    It seems he is either not learning or not learning in a “mainstream” yeshiva, and his shidduch prospects are negatively impacted by this. He seems to be upset by the fact in general someone in a mainstream yeshiva, although he may not be doing much actual learning, will fare better in the shidduch world than someone not in a yeshiva.
    Definitely a valid complaint. I’d comment on it, but my brain is too stressed from struggling through the letter.

    in reply to: what advice do u wish you’d have received when you were younger? #2118673

    I didn’t have a lack of advice; it was the lack of willingness to follow it.

    in reply to: misuse of lights and sirens #2115810

    I don’t know whether the accident involved L&S or such, but while we’re on the topic, I’ve got my two rants to add. I’m stuck of having jerks in BP turn on their obnoxious sirens just to try to get ahead in traffic. Aside from being a pain in the rear and stealing other people’s time, they endanger lives. I’ve come to the point that I almost tune out sirens from any car that isn’t a Hatzalah truck. I’m sure I’m far from the only one. That means there will be actual Hatzalah members who will find that no one will move aside for them due to all the tunas that cried wolf.

    Ok let me try again, maybe it was the title, which I don’t get, but ok
    Disingenuous as usual. NY and NJ, which is where most of the frum population lives, have renewables of under 30% and 10%, respectively.
    How’s that? Or were my previous posts deleted because I’m not pushing climate change disinformation?

    Calling people obnoxious names (what you call a title?) is something most people recognize as inappropriate. Why you are finding it to be such a mystery is beyond me. 

    in reply to: I got a tesla (model Y) #2107464

    Please enlighten me so I can try to stick to the rules.

    in reply to: I got a tesla (model Y) #2107463

    Of course. And the comment is deletable why again? Was I not being polite?

    in reply to: I got a tesla (model Y) #2107395

    I couldn’t figure out why in the world you block most of my comments, so I figured it was my username you didn’t like.
    Major kudos for knowing how to track ip addresses….

    when the same deletable post shows up under 2 different names there is no need to track ip addresses.
