See, it was all funny back in April 2013 that I was doing the daf during shachris. But now it’s August 2020 and I’m finishing my first cycle as a Daf Yomi Jew, this Monday, i”yh.
I started doing it during shachris daily, for a while I was doing it mostly catch-up on shabbos (so I guess more like 7 blatt a week than a daf a day), for a couple of years I was doing it during my daily commute, and during covid I’ve been doing it on a call at midnight with a couple of friends.
Full disclosure: It’s not a siyum on shas bec I missed some here and there. I didn’t even bother writing down when I skipped, because it was never going to matter (when I said hadran on eruvin, back in June 2013, I can assure you that I did not expect it to be b’alma hadein). But if you miss some, it doesn’t mean you’re off the program, as long as you pick it back up.
A week and half after we finished menachos, a fellow in my shul made a siyum and it was his first siyum on a mesechta. You think I’m nuts? This guy started the daf with menachos. He said at the kiddush that he had started when he saw me make a siyum on zevachim, and a few weeks in, his wife sees him learning and says whadaya doing. He says I’m doing the daf. She says is that today’s page? No, i’m 11 days behind. She says that’s not daf yomi, daf yomi is a daf a day. And this fellow says that’s why I’m making a siyum today because I’m still exactly 11 days behind.
That’s the trick-if you miss a day, the trick is that the next day you don’t try to do two blatt. You just stay a day behind until one day you have extra time and it’s easy to catch up. I’ve spent months behind by just a couple of blatt.
I came out of CRetirement to post this. I hope someone here will be inspired to pick up an eruvin on Tuesday, and join the PBA-machzor. You don’t need to finish shas, it’s just one page at a time, and deciding to learn eruvin isn’t a promise to do it forever. And i”yh we’ll bump this thread again on January 12, 2028 when we’re making a siyum on shas.
What’s the kasha? Who says you have to marry your beshert the first time? U can marry them the second or third time
The question makes no sense.
If you rejected them, then they weren’t your beshert. Or if they rejected you.
You may as well ask what if your beshert never meets you. Or chv dies?
You can’t believe in the one hand in the concept of beshert, bit on the other hand think that human interference can prevent you from getting married.

Also, what happens the other 2%?
Ah. Glad you asked. Various things.
One guy ate the sardines. And then licked off his tallis strings.
One guy dipped his siddur in, and then gave me crazy eyes until I fled.
One guy took out some smelly cheese, and rubbed it into the shtender.
A few others for later.
Why would a guest get up for some rude jerk who tries to kick them out of a seat.
When I come to a shul, if I want to sit, I sit. If someone comes and tells me it’s her seat, I motion to be quiet because we’re davening.
If they start davening on top of me, I pull out a can of sardines from my talis bag, and open it near them, taking care to spill the oil. This method has a 98% success rate.
This year, Hashem was mezakeh me to realize the reason for the minhag of the ershteh kiddush.
It’s to confuse the soton, who knows that after kiddush we blow shofar.
That’s not very profound

For almost 3 years, this was a perfect thread, and then DY ruined it.
If you’re asking if you should call the police, then you should.
Unless you’re a moron. So you should ask your rov whether you’re a moron.
No, ask us.
Oh, you did.
Yes, you are.
Is it creepy when married men are obsessed with the dating experience?
I think so.
Maybe it is shekia and then a new day?
That would be a different story. Not this story.

In England, they drink warm beer.
Maybe suggest that. If they drink warm beer, it will be more civilized and not chilling.
The notion that somehow if all kollel people were to leave kollel, they would be ridiculously successful in a business or profession, is quite fanciful.
