    in reply to: Difference between Chabad and everyone else? #1721940

    Problem with chabad, is their is no rebbe so no direction.

    Even bigger problem is the messianic Chabad who belive they have a rebbe, and therefore convinced that they have direction!!

    Mrs Sarah Levin

    without even knowing you i pray for you and your family and all jews daily,
    Without Torah as a backbone, our kids do not stand a chance, not in Greek times not today.

    i now can’t help but pray even harder for you that your grandkids and great grandkids remain Jewish.

    I Have been to Glenlivet, Glenmorangie, and most of the famous distilleries in Scotland and can confirm that All casks are burned out with a blow torch b4 being filled with whisky.
    and like someone mentioned above.
    in order to get a consistent taste, all whiskys companies will mix many different casks into one large ‘pot’ and master blender will taste and add different barrels until taste is consistent.
    this obviously excludes single cask bottles, however these are mainly collectors items.

    History of the Internet

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jump to: navigation, search

    Main article: Internet

    The history of the Internet began with the development of computers in the 1950s. This began with point-to-point communication between mainframe computers and terminals, expanded to point-to-point connections between computers and then early research into packet switching. Packet switched networks such as ARPANET, Mark I at NPL in the UK, CYCLADES, Merit Network, Tymnet, and Telenet, were developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s using a variety of protocols. The ARPANET in particular led to the development of protocols for internetworking, where multiple separate networks could be joined together into a network of networks.

    In 1982 the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced. Access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 when the National Science Foundation (NSF) developed the Computer Science Network (CSNET) and again in 1986 when NSFNET provided access to supercomputer sites in the United States from research and education organizations. Commercial internet service providers (ISPs) began to emerge in the late 1980s and 1990s. The ARPANET was decommissioned in 1990. The Internet was commercialized in 1995 when NSFNET was decommissioned, removing the last restrictions on the use of the Internet to carry commercial traffic.

    Since the mid-1990s the Internet has had a drastic impact on culture and commerce, including the rise of near-instant communication by electronic mail, instant messaging, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) “phone calls”, two-way interactive video calls, and the World Wide Web with its discussion forums, blogs, social networking, and online shopping sites. The research and education community continues to develop and use advanced networks such as NSF’s very high speed Backbone Network Service (vBNS), Internet2, and National LambdaRail. Increasing amounts of data are transmitted at higher and higher speeds over fiber optic networks operating at 1-Gbit/s, 10-Gbit/s, or more. The Internet continues to grow, driven by ever greater amounts of online information and knowledge, commerce, entertainment and social networking.

    It is estimated that in 1993 the Internet carried only 1% of the information flowing through two-way telecommunication. By 2000 this figure had grown to 51%, and by 2007 more than 97% of all telecommunicated information was carried over the Internet.[1]

    thank you wikipedia.

    Jane and Alan are going out for the evening. The last thing they do is put their cat out. The taxi arrives, and as the couple walk out of the house, the cat scoots back in. Alan returns inside to chase it out.

    Jane, not wanting him known that the house would be empty, explains to the taxi driver, ‘My husband is just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother.’ Several minutes later, an exhausted alan arrives and climbs back into the taxi saying, ‘Sorry I took so long, the stupid idiot was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger several times before I could get her to come out!’

    Terry Markland and his friend Ken Stokes left the Royal Navy in 1993 after several years of serving together. They were well used to having a glass or two of ale together at the end of a long working day. On leaving the RN, Terry went to live in Plymouth and his friend returned to his home area of Newcastle. They promised each other that whenever they went out for a beer they would order two pints at a time as a way of remembering their friendship.

    Terry drank for many years in The Star in Plymouth and each day at 1800 hours he would order and drink 2 pints of guiness. Dermot, the landlord, commented to Terry on this practice and Terry naturally told him the story. This went on for some 13 years, every day.

    Last week Terry entered The Star and only ordered one pint of bitter. Shocked and a trifle worried and anxious, Dermot enquired whether Ken had passed away hence no need for the second pint.

    ‘Oh no, ‘replied Terry, ‘I’ve given up drinking.’

    Murphy’s Flight Laws:

    No flight ever leaves on time unless you are running late and need the delay to make the flight.

    If you are running late for a flight, it will depart from the farthest gate in the terminal.

    If you arrive very early for a flight, it inevitably will be delayed.

    Flights never leave from Gate #1 at any terminal in the world.

    If you are assigned a middle seat, you can determine who has the seats on the aisle and the window while you are still in the boarding area; Just look for the two largest passengers.

    Only passengers seated in window seats ever have to get up to go to the washroom.

    The crying baby on board your flight is always seated near you.

    The less carry-on luggage space available on an aircraft, the more carry-on luggage passengers will bring aboard…

    I dont know if this joke has been on this blog yet, if it has please forgive me.

    >A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. ‘House’ for instance, is feminine: ‘la casa.’ ‘Pencil,’ howevert, is masculine: ‘el lapiz.’ A student asked, ‘What gender is ‘computer’?’ Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer’ should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

    Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men’s group decided that ‘computer’ should definitely be of the feminine gender (‘la computadora’), because:

    1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

    2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

    3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

    4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

    (THIS GETS BETTER!) The women’s group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine (‘el computador’), because:

    2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves;

    3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have got a better model.

    The women won.
