If it’s the same thing as kinetics, I’ve heard of it and tried it. The “doctor” waved her hands in the air to diagnose all kinds of nonexistent ailments and then cured them with another wave of her hands. She was amazed by the progress she had made (detected by yet another wave of her hands) and wanted us to come back again the next day for another treatment, but I deferred. She was undoubtedly a quack.February 22, 2011 6:36 am at 6:36 am in reply to: bringing babies and small children to megillah reading #743016
Wolf, I heard otherwise from one of the biggest poskim in Yerushalayim. He said that if one misses a few words, they can read it themselves from their sefer until they catch up. I was once in a situation where there were many, many children in shul and I had to keep reading to myself to catch up. I asked a shaila afterwards to see if I was yotzei and the psak was that I was, as long as I hadn’t read more than a certain percentage of it (which I cannot recall right now).
My kids don’t go online at all. And we have a filter on our computer plus a password which only I know to turn on the computer.
One of my good friends still uses dial up because it’s cheaper. I have DSL. Wireless.
Chayav–Tip #1: When changing your user name, choose something less obvious that won’t be a dead giveaway as to your true identity.
I can’t tell you how I know this without blowing my identity, but BJJ has not even sent out their letters yet. Chayav, it’s not very considerate of you to get people into a frenzy for not having received their letters yet. You should really think twice before starting a thread like this.
I used to have the same habit but I managed to kick it. It does help to put on Vaseline because you can’t “get a good piece” when they’re not dry. It’s very difficult not to pick dry lips. Mostly willpower is what made me stop doing it, but keeping them moist definitely helps.
“therefore there are chronic overdosage syndromes associated with high doses.”
I’ve often wondered how common it is to have an overdose of vitamins. I’m pregnant and I don’t take prenatals because I’m too lazy, but I use vitamin ovedosing as my rationalization. Is it really safe for pregnant women to take such high doses of vitamins?
Ah, excetra. I knew that. 🙂
BPT, I try hard not to be the grammar/spelling police, but I’m going to point this out just once since I’ve seen it in multiple posts of yours. Et cetera is abbreviated as etc., not ect.
Now back to your regularly scheduled program. 🙂
Those who think they are perfect are annoying to those of us who are.
“i hesitate to tread upon delicate ground, but it would be easy for women to check whether such a razor is as good as a real razor. “
In my experience, there is no electric shaver that comes close to a razor. I once borrowed my husband’s Lift and Cut and there was no way it compared.
BPG, it’s about his son who was born with a very severe heart defect and had to be flown to the US for emergency surgery to save his life. The story is full of hashgocha pratis and is told in a fascinating way.
I think it’s more strategy than luck. You have to know how to play the roll smartly. It does happen though that the roll of the dice is the deciding factor in a game. But it’s more fun when the player with the better strategy wins.
I am the type who doesn’t say hello to my neighbor, but I’m still fine with being here. There’s a big difference between talking to a live being in real life and typing words onto a screen.
The Goq–I’m good at backgammon too. Thanks for reminding me. Nobody here wants to play me anymore because they’re all sore losers. I play the computer a lot.
She posted today but under her new name, watermelon.
Thanks, anon. Hopefully they’ll schedule us for early in the morning, because she loves food and is miserable from the time she wakes up until she’s fed. I don’t think it will be too easy on her.
Health, your first comment is both rude and inaccurate.
Nolashonhara–If nursing is something you think you would enjoy and be good at, go for it. I decided to go to nursing school because I’ve always loved medicine but a doctor’s life is not compatible with being a mother. I started nursing school but soon after that my child got sick and I had to spend the next few years being a mommy-nurse so I dropped out. After I lost my child, I didn’t have the mental energy to go back to school. My kids’ pediatrician says that I’ve learned in the School of Life more than most doctors and nurses will ever know, but that doesn’t help with getting a job. (I ended up opening a BH very successful business from home, but medicine is something that will always be near and dear to my heart.)
Mod 80–Out of curiosity, what kind of physician are you? I understand if you don’t want to answer.
Thanks, everyone. Gefen, refuah shelaima to you too.
On the ball, I don’t know if my baby will need the cleanout for an endoscopy. In any case, she seems to do her own natural cleanout every time she eats. 🙁
Watermelon, you’re right–it’s on Variations 1. My bad.
I can sing. It’s mostly a wasted talent in a female, but as a kid I had solos in pretty much every school concert or choir. Now I only sing to my kids.
I can also cook well. And eat well. 🙂
Watermelon–I’m terrible with names but that’s from Destiny. It’s the song that’s to the tune of the Cat’s in the Cradle. About Little Boy Dov.
Why does Eees say Joseph under it then?
TMB, helpful, Jose, Volvie, Joseph, Sam I Am, gabboim, Bed-Stuy, TheChevra, so right
When I saw the title of this thread, I read the word “shin” as part of the leg and wondered how anyone could put their shin on their forehead.
TMB, helpful, Ruff Ruff, Jose, Volvie, Joseph, Sam I Am, gabboim, Bed-Stuy, Eees
Eees is not Joseph. Neither was Ruff Ruff (who now has a new name). (Dont ask me about RuphRuph and RuffRuph, They were blocked simply cause of their names). You did, however, forget to add TheChevra and so right (and a host of older ones which we will not get into now)
“so the girl can be 10? no such thing as regardless of the girls age”
Me who–According to the posek I heard this from, a 10-year-old girl can bathe with a boy under 3.
Jesse, care to elaborate on that? I’ve had other kids undergo anesthesia before without complication, so that part isn’t what scares me. (One of them was an absolute maniac when he woke up and he had to get something to calm him, but eventually he was back to his sweet little self.)
Thanks, everyone. Health, she has been dropping percentiles consistently and is below the charts now. She seems to have a dirty diaper after every meal and I won’t talk about the smell. She had some blood work done which was not all normal–there seems to be some absorption problem. The GI wants her to have an endoscopy to see if we can figure out what’s going on with her.
I was told that it’s okay until the boy is 3 regardless of the girl’s age.
Mod, don’t you think you should let up on chayav a little? I know it’s fun when someone buys every word you say, but I’m starting to feel a little sorry for him.
And Moderator 80
You know as well as I do
That Chayav’s not a lady!
Chayav–you’re pretty young, aren’t you? Mod 80 is having a grand time with you today.
Blinky–Someday we will all be together by MBD.
It’s quite simple, chayav. Popa decided to pull a fast one and pretend that he’s Mod 80, so he posted something as if he were him, and then posted again “Oops. Wrong user name.” Mod 80 decided to play along and referred to Popa as his other user name. That was it. It was all a big joke which most people realized right away because otherwise they wouldn’t have been so obvious about it. Don’t feel bad though–there were a few others that were fooled. They just came around a little more quickly than you.
Feif Un–You’re really good at this!
Sometimes we write “LOL”
When we think something is funny,
But this time I really did LOL,
Because Daas Yochid is right on the money!
Bad Hair Day–Is that really old? Yisroel Williger sings that and he’s not what I’d call old.
You’re both right. 🙂
1. “Then he threw me to the floor, then he pushed me out the door”
2. “When Hashem is at our side, every door is open wide”
3. “Though I may not be as smart as you, there is something you should know is true.”
I think there’s already a thread about this. I don’t know how to search for it though.
What about a thread
For those who cannot rhyme?
I keep on trying
But fail every time.
Joseph, are you lacking adequate attention in your real life? I find it surprising that you’re not hiding your head in shame after you’ve been outed this way.
2. Putting away laundry. I don’t mind folding it, but distributing it to the various closets is what I despise.
4. Ironing. I have an iron just for show.
“and don’t right in textish on discussion boards.”
Oops–I meant “write”, not “right”.
Chayav sounds like a young, very gullible bochur from the other threads. And grandmothers generally know how to use punctuation and don’t right in textish on discussion boards.
Chayav–I don’t think they hoped it would go over this well. You’re the only one still fooled though.
Feif Un–#3 is 15 Synagogues from Destiny.
Bad Hair Day–#3 is from Destiny but I can’t remember the name of that song. It’s about a guy who was addicted to the internet until he decided to throw his computer out the window. Waiting for the name to come to me…
1. “That is all it takes to mend a broken heart.”
2. “We are your prisoners no more.”
3. “Well the town hadn’t seen no rain as the year was going by.”
Bed-Stuy–Or all dogs, or everyone in Cedarhurst, or all gabboim, etc.
