  • in reply to: I hate vegetables #987590

    i can sympathize 1 billion percent because my diet is similar however I do eat veggies but cant look at chicken or meat in any form.(meatballs in tomato sauce once in a while is ok but like once a month is too much.

    I just try to drink water or seltzer when i can and try to eat veggies with my starches-i know this is not an option for u- but u can try to make small changes and u will see they will make a difference. i thnk trying to drink water and spreading out the sweet juices will help u.

    this is just my humble opinion. hope it helps.

    in reply to: Warning teachers about there future students #971196

    I want to offer a take on the other side of the story. As a teacher for quite a few years, I have always asked the previous teacher to tell me about the students- of course listening to the laws of lashon hara. I think it really gave me insight into who needed the extra attention especially at the beginning and who needed a bit of a firmer hand. I think i can honestly say that I never came in with a bad attitude toward a student based on previous reports. I just used the reports to make sure that everyone was getting the most out of the year- including the first few days that are oh so important to the years success!

    I am the type of teacher who loves the challenging students who keep life exciting and are active and energetic in class, even if at times they go a bit beyond the limit of what is expected in a typical classroom.

    I taught the last few years but its under ten years since I was in elementary school myself and I remember being a student quite well. Of course a teacher must keep a clear mind cuz kids can make major strides over the summer months, but I still feel that knowing the basics is important.

    the hairspray trick shoud be interesting- does this work like the “model in a bottle”?

    keep the tips coming! maybe SOMETHING will work really well!

    in reply to: Fun in Judaism #949763

    i heard this too but my teacher explained it well.

    She said of course you can do things you enjoy- amusement parks, sleepovers… but make sure u r enjoying yourself and recharging your batteries. Just to do it to waste time then its not a healthy kosher way to pass time. But of course u can have a great time and even call it fun!

    in reply to: The Longest Seder ContestóHow Late Will Your Seder End? #1199607

    WOW! i x know how the ppl whos seder finished at 4-5 got up the next day!

    I had trouble pulling the men out of bed and we were in bed by 3 the first night and 3.45 the second night! and that was after clearing up so we prob finished like 2.45 and 3.30

    in reply to: Dating and car services #937733

    why dont i think this is such a bad idea?

    if the boy doesnt feel comfortable driving, the girl shudnt put him under more pressure durnig the date by insisting he drive. THere cud be countless reasons why he x wanna/or cant drive.

    I think its fine for them to take a cab-just make sure the girl knows before cuz otherwise its weird.

    in reply to: Attempted Child Abductions In Borough Park #929824

    there was a bucharian man- or at least thats what he claimed to be!- who stopped a teenager in the low forties near fort hamilton and eventhogh he didnt grab her, he tried luring her to join him.

    she said he looked jewish but he drove off right after and she x get down his info.

    in reply to: MiraclesóAmazing Wonders! #994546

    JMH and squeak,

    being mean isnt necessary here.

    Its an amazing story. If u cant bring urself to see it, just refrain from saying anything at all. R’ Pinchas is a talmid chacham so at least don’t belittle him!!

    in reply to: Purim Shtick for teachers to do on students #1059788

    Koillel- thats cute especially if he got a bunch of 8th graders to play along!!!!

    Thanks for keeping this thread going!

    Any fresh new ideas for PURIM 2013??????

    in reply to: Son Wants To Go Collecting In Limo On Purim #926136

    Finf out who will be going around with him and if they are good boys from good homes with good values, u shouldnt have a problem. Part of the purim fun is the competition of who has a fancier car/limo/rv and who can blare the music louder- most boys do not go anywhere near drugs or strange girls.

    in reply to: Ted Cruz Stuns Hagel With Al Jazeera 'Bully' Bite #925839

    As far as what we with our little amount of understanding can perceive, Hagel looks like a terrible choice. However, keep in mind that Hashem is the one orchestrating this!!! Daven!!

    in reply to: Pesach Cleaning #925905

    i started cleaning for pesach already although not any major areas.

    If too uch gets left for the last minute, my adrenaline doesnt let me fall asleep at night until its all finished so id rather start early and keep a regular schedule.

    Also, for those of us wives who work full time out of the house, we have to start early or else there will physically not be enuf time to finish the whole house!!

    just let ur wife do her thing and maybe even offer to help out!!!

    in reply to: SHIDDUCH CONCERN #923257

    i laughed so hard shtraight through this thread! thanks for the pre-purim laughs!

    I certainly hope this is a troll thread and is just getting fed for the entertainment of it all!

    in reply to: Racism and Chinuch: What do we teach our children about diversity? #929159

    The hard part of chinuch today is getting the children to WANT to do the mitzvos and be tzniusdig and i think that the teachers/parents often use the line “we are better than them” to get the children to have a feeling for why we have certain restrictions and the goyim dont. I am not validating this behavior but because i do work in a school setting and hear the issues that arise, I do understand why teachers use this phrase and why they focus on us being the ‘am segulah’ and being a cut above the others.

    in reply to: inyan magazine #921171

    i dont want to complain if there are other people enjoying it. I know that around here, we buy the hamodia cuz its very clean but at the same time, most of my family agrees that it has gotten kind of boring as of late. Im happy your all still enjoying it! keep reading!

    in reply to: Problem With Food!!! #921062

    in reply to: Tzahal Sweatshirts #946599

    MDG, u r sooo wrong!

    snowbunny is right. I am from a very frum circle and as a teenager I always wanted a tzahal sweatshirt because it was a shticky thing to wear at night in camp and by school shabbosim. I honestly do not think anyone is associating with the IDF by wearing these sweatshirts- they are really status symbols just like any brand names…

    in reply to: Filming in BP #929342

    groisakishka- halevai it was that…..but……

    yeshivish- maybe that explains how they know all the tiny details about chassidishe dress- like the exact shoes, perfect shtreimel…

    in reply to: To mothers. How much sleep do you need? #918102

    I can’t remember the last time i was FULLY rested! even when i get a treat and sleep 6-8 hours straight, i wake up tired. Thats part of our job! but with this amount i am able to function and not get irritated quickly so i guess that means its enuf for now(eventhough i wud love to get more, its just not feasible with only 24 hours in a day!!!)

    in reply to: To mothers. How much sleep do you need? #918100

    at least 25 hours in all during the week and like 8-10 over shabbos(after lecht tzinden/night/afternoon).

    in reply to: Tent City #917045

    its really a terrible thing to let it stay there becasue there are children in lakewood who are scared to leave their houses when its dark cuz the members of this tent city walk around parts of lakewood at night and many times they are drunk/wild.

    I hoope the community and government can settle this problem quickly becasue its coming out to look like a scandal against the frum yidden that thye dont care about the homeless. Maybe we can get them to move to zuccotti park????? it was safer for us when the homeless camped out there!

    in reply to: Picking Up A Neighbor's Phone Calls on a Scanner #917130

    pleeeeeez tell her!!!

    the wires sometimes get crossed in my house if more than one person is one their cellphone and someone turns on the microwave and it can be VERY embarrassing sometimes if the call was private.

    Ur doing her a major favor and even if she might be embarrassed, she will be happy that u r telling her so that she can change it for the future.

    in reply to: Lipa's new Chanuka video…So, so sad… #914918

    i just searched for it and was happy to see that it was removed from many frum sites. There is even a non-tzniusdige lady being shown(sleeves above her elbows). this is by far not a “frum” video!

    in reply to: Grandfather's Role #900953

    just smile and give out lollipops and then let the kids go play with the toys!! Dont expect them to pay attention to you and have a conversation- just be the jolly one and they will like to come when they get older.

    P.S. also, dont give advice unless asked. they get enough advice from their parents and teachers and resent being told by more adults what to do

    in reply to: Jokes #1202293

    You are working on your family genealogy and for sake of example, let’s say that your great-great uncle, Remus Starr, a fellow lacking in character, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889.

    A cousin has supplied you with the only known photograph of Remus, showing him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture are the words:

    “Remus Starr: Horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison, 1885. Escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged, 1889.”

    Pretty grim situation, right? But let’s revise things a bit. We simply crop the picture, scan in an enlarged image and edit it with image processing software so that all that is seen is a head shot.

    Next, we rewrite the text:

    “Remus Starr was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad.

    Beginning in 1885, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.”

    Fun things to do on the first day of class

    This is for entertainment purposes only. We do not advise that you do any of these things on the first day of class or for that matter, on any day of class.

    Sit in the front row and spend the lecture filing your teeth into sharp points.

    Sit in the front and color in your textbook.

    When the professor calls your name in roll, respond “that’s my name, don’t wear it out!”

    Wear earmuffs. Every few minutes, ask the professor to speak louder.

    Leave permanent markers by the dry-erase board.

    Squint thoughtfully while giving the professor strange looks. In the middle of lecture, tell him he looks familiar and ask whether he was ever in your father’s class.

    Ask whether the first chapter will be on the test. If the professor says no, rip the pages out of your textbook.

    Become entranced with your first physics lecture, and declare your intention to pursue a career in measurements and units.

    Sing your questions.

    Speak only in rhymes and hum during class.

    When the professor calls roll, after each name scream “THAT’S MEEEEE! Oh, no, sorry.”

    Insist in a Southern drawl that your name really is Wuchen Li. If you actually are Chinese, insist that your name is Vladimir Fernandez O’Reilly.

    Page through the textbook scratching each picture and sniffing it.

    Wear your pajamas. Pretend not to notice that you’ve done so.

    Inform the class that you are Belgian royalty, and have a friend bang cymbals together whenever your name is spoken.

    Address the professor as “your excellency”.

    Shout “WOW!” after every sentence of the lecture.

    Bring a mirror and spend the lecture writing on your face.

    Ask whether you have to come to class.

    Bring a “seeing eye rooster” to class.

    Feign an unintelligible accent and repeatedly ask, “Vet ozzle haffen dee henvay?” Become aggitated when the professor can’t understand you.

    Relive your school days by leaving chalk stuffed in the chalkboard erasers.

    Watch the professor through binoculars.

    Ask to introduce your “invisible friend” in the empty seat beside you, and ask for one extra copy of each handout.

    When the professor turns on his laser pointer, scream “AAAGH! MY EYES!”

    Correct the professor at least ten times on the pronunciation of your name, even it’s Smith. Claim that the i is silent.

    Sit in the front row reading the professor’s graduate thesis and snickering.

    As soon as the first bell rings, volunteer to put a problem on the board. Ignore the professor’s reply and proceed to do so anyway.

    Claim that you wrote the class text book.

    Claim to be the teaching assistant. If the real one objects, jump up and scream “IMPOSTER!”

    Every few minutes, take a sheet of notebook paper, write “Signup Sheet #5” at the top, and start passing it around the room.

    Stand to ask questions. Bow deeply before taking your seat after the professor answers.

    Interrupt every few minutes to ask the professor, “Can you spell that?”

    Disassemble your pen. “Accidently” propel pieces across the room while playing with the spring. Go on furtive expeditions to retrieve the pieces. Repeat.

    Wink at the professor every few minutes.

    In the middle of lecture, ask your professor whether he believes in superstitions.

    Laugh heartily at everything the professor says. Snort when you laugh.

    Ask your math professor to pull the roll chart above the blackboard of ancient Greek trade routes down farther because you can’t see Macedonia.

    Two statisticians were travelling in an airplane from LA to New York. About an hour into the flight, the pilot announced that they had lost an engine, but don’t worry, there are three left.

    However, instead of 5 hours it would take 7 hours to get to New York. A little later, he announced that a second engine failed, and they still had two left, but it would take 10 hours to get to New York.

    Somewhat later, the pilot again came on the intercom and announced that a third engine had died. Never fear, he announced, because the plane could fly on a single engine.

    However, it would now take 18 hours to get to new York. At this point, one statistician turned to the other and said, “Gee, I hope we don’t lose that last engine, or we’ll be up here forever!”

    Pronouncing English

    Dearest creature in creation,

    Study English pronunciation.

    I will teach you in my verse

    Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.

    I will keep you, Suzy, busy,

    Make your head with heat grow dizzy.

    Tear in eye, your dress will tear.

    So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.

    Just compare heart, beard, and heard,

    Dies and diet, lord and word,

    Sword and sward, retain and Britain.

    (Mind the latter, how it’s written.)

    Now I surely will not plague you

    With such words as plaque and ague.

    But be careful how you speak:

    Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;

    Cloven, oven, how and low,

    Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.

    Hear me say, devoid of trickery,

    Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,

    Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,

    Exiles, similes, and reviles;

    Scholar, vicar, and cigar,

    Solar, mica, war and far;

    One, anemone, Balmoral,

    Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;

    Gertrude, German, wind and mind,

    Scene, Melpomene, mankind.

    Billet does not rhyme with ballet,

    Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.

    Blood and flood are not like food,

    Nor is mould like should and would.

    Viscous, viscount, load and broad,

    Toward, to forward, to reward.

    And your pronunciation’s OK

    When you correctly say croquet,

    Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,

    Friend and fiend, alive and live.

    Ivy, privy, famous; clamour

    And enamour rhyme with hammer.

    River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,

    Doll and roll and some and home.

    Stranger does not rhyme with anger,

    Neither does devour with clangour.

    Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,

    Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,

    Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger,

    And then singer, ginger, linger,

    Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge,

    Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.

    Query does not rhyme with very,

    Nor does fury sound like bury.

    Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.

    Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.

    Though the differences seem little,

    We say actual but victual.

    Refer does not rhyme with deafer.

    Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.

    Mint, pint, senate and sedate;

    Dull, bull, and George ate late.

    Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,

    Science, conscience, scientific.

    Liberty, library, heave and heaven,

    Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.

    We say hallowed, but allowed,

    People, leopard, towed, but vowed.

    Mark the differences, moreover,

    Between mover, cover, clover;

    Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,

    Chalice, but police and lice;

    Camel, constable, unstable,

    Principle, disciple, label.

    Petal, panel, and canal,

    Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.

    Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,

    Senator, spectator, mayor.

    Tour, but our and succour, four.

    Gas, alas, and Arkansas.

    Sea, idea, Korea, area,

    Psalm, Maria, but malaria.

    Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.

    Doctrine, turpentine, marine.

    Compare alien with Italian,

    Dandelion and battalion.

    Sally with ally, yea, ye,

    Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.

    Say aver, but ever, fever,

    Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.

    Heron, granary, canary.

    Crevice and device and aerie.

    Face, but preface, not efface.

    Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.

    Large, but target, gin, give, verging,

    Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.

    Ear, but earn and wear and tear

    Do not rhyme with here but ere.

    Seven is right, but so is even,

    Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,

    Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,

    Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.

    Pronunciation — think of Psyche!

    Is a paling stout and spikey?

    Won’t it make you lose your wits,

    Writing groats and saying grits?

    It’s a dark abyss or tunnel:

    Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale,

    Islington and Isle of Wight,

    Housewife, verdict and indict.

    Finally, which rhymes with enough —

    Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough?

    Hiccough has the sound of cup.

    My advice is to give up!!!
