cringing for all the people who didn’t realise that RY23 was kidding….
unless of course he wasn’t and I am just exceptionally slow!December 24, 2018 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1651236
CS: however if the world is not in the state of Moshiach then clearly it is not ratzon Hashem at this moment for us to serve Him in that way.
”So anyone who cares about doing mitzvos to fulfill ratzon Hashem should want to bring the era of moshiach asap so we can do exactly that.”
WE CAN’T BRING MOSHIACH, it is not within our ability. Every day we WAIT for moshiach, every day we do not BRING moshiach
uhhh no. in the olden days when people came in contact with a virus it was not a controlled amount, therefore their immune system couldn’t stand up to it…December 24, 2018 5:28 pm at 5:28 pm in reply to: The world is in a state of Geula- and don’t misunderstand us! #1651176
Just trying to clarify to you what others have said previously, very clearly:
You seem to imply that we do Hashem’s ratzon in order to bring about Moshiach. However it is not so. Hashem will bring Moshiach when He sees fit. Our tachlis is to do ratzon Hashem, no shaychus to Moshiach. Even if we knew a certain act would bring moshiach, but it contravened halacha, it would be ossur to do it. out tachlis in this world is not to bring moshiach.
can I make this any clearer?
hafleh vofeleh! I feel as though this may be the future of medicine…..

why does every random conversation nowadays somehow end up as an argument about the 2016 presidential candidates?
I think this conversation has veered off course, women’s suffrage was less about women leaving their homes to go to work, and more about about women being recognized as humans with rights rather than chattel.December 4, 2015 6:28 am at 6:28 am in reply to: Arguing over whether humans are alone in the universe #1115832

Op: literally or figuratively?
D – Danger, always check the danger to you, any bystanders and then the injured or ill person. Make sure you do not put yourself in danger when going to the assistance of another person.
R – Response, is the person conscious? Do they respond when you talk to them, touch their hands or squeeze their shoulder?
S – Send for help, call 911 and Hatzolah (in that order)
B – Breathing,heck for breathing by looking for chest movements (up and down). Listen by putting your ear near to their mouth and nose. Feel for breathing by putting your hand on the lower part of their chest. If the person is unconscious but breathing, turn them onto their side, carefully ensuring that you keep their head, neck and spine in alignment.
C – CPR
D – Defibrillator
Considering your user name I didn’t think it needed an explanation.

Why not?November 29, 2015 1:46 am at 1:46 am in reply to: How do you shecht a giraffe when your heart is black? #1114126
YOu insinuate that music is nothing more than notes and contains nothing of the composer and has little or no power.
Exhibit A: A large majority of Jews (who listen to classical music) who don’t listen to Wagner.
Exhibit B: The importance gedolim through the generations have attached to music, even ones nowadays.
Exhibit C: Music of the Leviim in the Beis Hamikdash which brought people to teshuva.
I know you will nitpick and find something in my answer which is not good enough for you but that is okay. You are free to live your life as you please ultimately, my opinion notwithstanding. If you want to listen to whatever music you want go ahead but though you will deny it the music you listen to will have an effect on you.

Music has a serious effect on ones neshama (for good or bad) and contains in it part of the neshama/soul/intentions of the composer, (and this stuff doesn’t just disappear when you put Hebrew words to it).
As a side point i once heard a story about a lady who underwent brain surgery and when they hit on a certain point she began to sing this complicated opera that they found out after (when they questioned her) she had only listened to it once in her life when she was a young girl and had hated it but it was still there somewhere deep in her memory.
I don’t think anyone will dispute the effect music has on a person.
Is it just me or does anyone else think popa is not really acting like himself?
my two cents (or less):
Aside from the halachik issue bear in mind that often printing a picture of a woman with an article can detract from the message. It becomes more about what she is wearing, her makeup and jewelery, how many wrinkles she has etc. Women are very judged by society based on their appearance (less so for men) so you could have a whole article about the amazing things a woman has done and ppl can totally miss the point because they are too busy analyzing her appearance in that picture where she is watering the flowers.October 22, 2015 11:32 am at 11:32 am in reply to: In which someone accuses Joseph of being a masculist ðŸ˜· #1107203

1. My brain is too tired
3. sorry don’t know how to do fancy formatting 48^(1/2)=16*(3^(1/2))
4. b. not overly familiar with parametric equations but if you are asking for dx/dt i am assuming you differentiate the function containing those variables
How did I do?

I would like to add another thought into the mix. This might sound very controversial but what about a person not just getting a college degree to get a good job (though that is the main aim) but also for personal fulfillment. (I am talking about women as well)
Hashem gives people talents for a reason.
sirvoddmort: likes to write about the most prosaic things using the biggest words possible. (not sure though if that is influential…)
I think your focus should not be on the letter of the law but rather the spirit of the law.April 20, 2015 11:32 am at 11:32 am in reply to: #1072951
Some people are sooooo smart…. (is that a bit too mean?)
little froggie: I like how you assume I am female
sirvoddmort: you’re right, we are all too complex to be summed up in one word. That is what i don’t like about all such activities (e.g. describe yourself in one phrase, sentence, word etc.). Thank you for spelling it out for us(?).
sdd: I beg to differ. This word may not exist on Wikipedia but it has been used in other places including scholarly peer reviewed articles.Just saying
I don’t think that high school teachers tend to be members of the cr.
Rema: You need some real life experience
yytz is right about Vitamin D. Especially frum yidden who wear more clothing than the average goy when they are outside and thus have less exposure to the sun need it. BTW I take Vitamin D, an Iron supplement and a multivitamin.
Also this thread is a bit random (but hey aren’t most threads on the CR?)
I do not condone the public bashing of anyone. However freedom of speech still exists unless you say something untrue (which may have been the case in the first post on this thread).
Curious yenta: Firstly I think this mostly refers to Jews however I will take your advice and while I’m at it I will try to do the same for Mr. Abbas (not that I am drawing any parallels…).January 25, 2015 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm in reply to: Why is everybody anti anti-vaccine theories, a dissertation #1100461
Veltz: Firstly I take offense at the fact that you think I could not comprehend what you wrote (just letting you know).
Secondly: Considering you think yourself worthy of a well thought out reply in response to your ranting I will do my best.
Admittedly there have been flawed studies but by 2015 the evidence against vaccination has been discredited by non-flawed studies.
As well research in the field of immunology is always happening. People are discovering new ways to do things all the time and if a company holds onto a semi-effective vaccine instead of funding research to improve it they will be left way behind.
The flu vaccine is a very individual case and should not inform your decisions about other vaccines.
Vaccines have dramatically changed the statistics of world mortality in the past 100+ years (antibiotics have helped as well). If you took the time to read the studies and scholarly articles and look at the statistics you might have a very different view.
In short: there are issues with one or two of the vaccines on the market today however you should not allow this to inform your perception of vaccinations in general. Keep yourself informed and try not to be so fearful of the government.January 25, 2015 7:06 am at 7:06 am in reply to: Why is everybody anti anti-vaccine theories, a dissertation #1100444
I think only once one has made at least a preliminary study of immunology are they permitted to post on such threads. Veltz’s ignorant borderline phobic rant is testament to this.
curious yenta: Why?
What is your definition of respect?
Respect is a positive feeling of esteem or deference for a person or other entity, and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Respect can be a specific feeling of regard for the actual qualities of the one respected. – Wikipedia
If you don’t like someone it is reasonable to assume you do not hold them in high esteem. It is therefore quite difficult to respect them.
The fact that RebYidd23 took the time to create this thread and write a post wherein he refers to himself in third person proves that he is self-centered. Or maybe that was the point all along…
picturesq are you saying that men are on a higher madreigah than women?
Wondering why everyone is so against recycling…
I read the rules it seems as though the NYC Department of Sanitation is trying to make it as hard as possible for anyone to ever recycle anything. There are so many good models for encouraging recycling worldwide why cant they just adopt one of them?
Would that really be so bad?

It would be really nice when ppl say things like “vaccines cause death” and the like that they would back it up with evidence. If/when you can do this I am sure many ppl would be glad to enter into a discussion about it with you.
Gamanit: riversides were not exactly very public places. It may have been a meeting place for women but I doubt you would have found men there. As well some women did wash clothes in their backyards. They would bring water from a well or the river and boil it so that they would be able to give their clothes a more thorough cleaning.

Off topic but when I saw this thread all I thought of was the Marvelous Midos Machine (I think!) song about nekamah “don’t pay back a bad deed with a bad deed of your own…”
