    Tznius is a big issue. It falls under ???? ??????, and should not be taken lightly. Frankly, I’m surprised that the mods allowed people to make fun of something so serious.

    T.V. doesn’t really let you go to any real college. C.B. is not as strict. There are plenty of smaller Yeshivas that let you go to real colleges.

    DY: you can’t clean the socket, you need to fully Kasher it. It’s easier and cheaper to have a set of Pesachdik outlets. There may be a shita that holds, if you plug a light bulb – incandescent preferably, which is hard to find these days, it might be a way of kashering that outlet.

    I wonder about the following: look at the comments of Dasan & Aviram “..you took us from a land of milk and honey..” they used attributes of Eretz Yisrael to describe Mitzrayim. Now, they actually made it out of Mitzrayim with the 20%. I cannot even imagine the mindset of the 80% who did not come out!

    rebyid, the problem with your solution is that in Flatbush where you have to use a sign as opposed to saying “Good Shabbos” those people don’t carry so you’ll be ostracized for carrying in Flatbush anyway. In Boro Park at least, many people do hold of the eruv. I grew up in BP and did say Good Shabbos and still got married. BTW, there are more people like me in Brooklyn than you think.

    I received this in an email yesterday:

    Parshas hamon – the humorous side:

    1) The Satmar Rebbe zy”a said that the segulah of Parshas HaMan is only valid until 9am. After that you have to GO TO WORK!

    2) My friend says Parshas HaMan “oisenvendig” (off by heart); he wants to get paid “off the books”!

    3) I know someone who already said Parshas HaMan 6 times – each time under a different name…

    4) Bidieved if someone forgets to say Parshas HaMan he can go to work instead…

    5)Say it walking up the stairs to get a “raise”

    crisis: as opposed to dressing like goyim of the 20th – 21st century? By the way, I dress like the litvaks who dress like goyim of the last 50 years. I don’t think it’s who they are dressing like, but more like how the clothing fits the person wearing it.

    From time to time I see either state or local police pulling over those cars that cross solid white lines or zebra stripes to save a few minutes. For example, before there were 2 lanes to get from the FDR South onto the Brooklyn Bridge and NJ Route 21 where it merges into one lane before Route 46.

    Dr. B, I’m sure you learned all the nosai keilim on Orach Chaim 124:7 and are familiar with the ‘punishments’ listed there. Like others who posted here, I have to say that most places I’ve davened, it is quiet during davening. What you wrote here is motzi shem ra, possibly constitutes a kitrug. Are you ready to shoulder responsibility of others receiving the punishments mentioned?

    The way I see it, he is a germophobe. Do you know ALL the places people use their smart phone? I’ve heard people use them in the bathroom (the sound effects when one plays games or talking to someone). So I don’t blame them for not wanting to touch a smart phone that may be host to thousands of germs and bacteria etc.
