Ladies and Gentlebeings, I give you the Blunder Bird, a species that flaps its feathers in the face of danger… and usually face-plants into it.
Imagine a creature with a body rounder than a beach ball, legs shorter than a dwarf, and wings that would make a bumblebee blush. You now have a Blunder Bird. These birds are as graceful as a hippopotamus in a tutu, making their attempts at flight as successful as a three-legged dog in a sack race.
The Blunder Bird’s beak is larger than its brain, causing it to frequently poke itself in the eye, or drop the worm it worked so hard to catch. Its feathers are as sparse as a bald man’s hairline, making it look like it’s just finished a round of chemotherapy.
Despite these setbacks, the Blunder Bird remains as optimistic as a Vogon at a poetry contest. It continues to try and fly, even though it knows it’ll end up as a tasty treat for the local raptors. But its antics are so charming, even the most cynical of creatures can’t help but smile at its comical displays.
In conclusion, the Blunder Bird may be the evolutionary equivalent of a laughing stock, but its indomitable spirit and contagious joy make it a beloved creature in the animal kingdom… and in the hearts of those who appreciate the absurd.January 25, 2023 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm in reply to: What’s Our Response to Environmentalists. #2159493

That is your opinion.
Rather than look to do away with Torah learning, which is completely the wrong hashkafa, perhaps we should look at our forefathers during this crisis for a solution (as Klal Yisroel has always done). If you do I think you’ll find polygamy to be the answer.December 26, 2022 9:42 pm at 9:42 pm in reply to: Quick Quote from Rabbi Yehuda Cahn #2151614

Please remove this post. It’s an expression of frustration and negativity and completely at odds with the Toradige way of our fathers.

Pulled your heads out the ground. Gas prices and general inflation are a worldwide issue, not a localized one. And certainly not caused by a few recent, relatively minor choices made by an American president.
It’s sad how people are so convinced it was the gossiping that lead to suicide. Not the inability of facing the music.
It’s also sad how people are so keen to believe the accused, in face of an overwhelmingly number of accusers. Burying their heads in the sand, pretending these abuses don’t happen within our communities. Citing the need for irrevocable proof. The word of two witnesses was enough for beis din, yet now we tell ourselves 20+ people are in cahoots with eachother just to besmirch the name of an individual.
It’s this burying our heads in the sand is exactly what enables abusers to get away with what they’re doing.December 23, 2021 9:20 am at 9:20 am in reply to: Electric Cars are they in your future? #2044183
Your concerns are precisely the reason why EV manufacturers are turning their focus to faster charging rather than extended range.
If charging time can be brought down to 5min or less, EV stations can replace gas stations.December 20, 2021 10:01 am at 10:01 am in reply to: Vayechi – Midrash Peliah #2043373

I’ve yet to come across someone from a first world country with socialized medicine that would prefer the US system.
Care is never worse in these countries. There is always the option of private medical insurance(and seemingly for far cheaper than it would cost in the US). But with socialized medicine, it ensures everyone has at least basic medical coverage.April 15, 2021 6:10 pm at 6:10 pm in reply to: The Democrat Playbook #1965190
How Terumo or Maaser is calculated is irrelevant. Either way, by your understanding of נעמה דכסופא, the Kohen or Levy would be better off recieving nothing.April 15, 2021 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm in reply to: The Democrat Playbook #1965157
So what your saying is Kohanim and Leviim getting terumos and maasros was not a privilege but rather quite the opposite? Because they seem like a handout of sorts.April 14, 2021 1:44 pm at 1:44 pm in reply to: Mistaking a gun for a taser…..oops! #1964821
What an intelligent comment…
Because this apparently needs explaining:
With cars, the benefits are obvious and far outweigh their risks.
With guns though, their primary purpose is to be used to defend oneself from other people with guns. Hence why gun control may be the solution. You know, like most developed countries.

Sidney Powell’s filings are a joke.
They read terribly. The sentences appear to have been spliced together, erroneously divided with misplaced full stops or end with closing quotation marks that were never opened and are filled with debunked conspiracy theory hogwash.
Like the primary source for the complaint’s claims about Dominion’s supposed Venezuelan connection appears to be a Wall Street Journal article from 2006.

Um, I don’t think you’re following.
The fact is, 2 cases alleging specifically to voter fraud were brought to court, both thrown out for lack of evidence.
And much like Trump you can close your eyes and block your ears in the face of fact, but that doesn’t change the reality.November 8, 2020 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm in reply to: State Legislatures Should Give Trump Reelection Win #1917825
Clark County, Nevada, Judge James Gordon ruled there wasn’t evidence of an alleged 3000 ballots cast on behalf of ineligible individuals.
Chatham County, Georgia, Judge James Bass dismissed a petition that certain ballots were recieved after the deadline.
The only case the GOP has some related to better access for election observers.
But sure. I’m lying.November 8, 2020 11:45 am at 11:45 am in reply to: State Legislatures Should Give Trump Reelection Win #1917796
I can’t believe people on here actually believe the nonsense that Biden somehow cheated in the election.
It’s been to court twice thus far, and both cases were thrown out for lack of evidence. One of which, the ruling was a one liner. Guiliani’s cases this week will prove to be about as watertight.
And the Trump campaign know this too. The only reason they’re spreading these rumors is to have people to donate to their Election “Defense” Fund.
The reason for that can be found within the small print on the Trump campaigns website. Within the small print it states that 50% of these donations go towards paying down the election campaign’s debt.
This only “fraud” is the Trump campaign’s last ditched grift for money.
And unlike most of the debunked rumors many of you lot are parroting, what I’ve said can be verified easily enough on Trump campaign website.October 24, 2020 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm in reply to: Is hydroxychloroquine really proven ineffective?? #1913028

Because early delivery isn’t always an option….
The “normal” cold isn’t COVID-19.
A cold can be caused by any of about 200 different viruses. These could be Rhinoviruses, human parainfluenza virus, adenovirus, respiratory syncytial virus amongst others.
And yes, some colds can be caused by about 6 types of coronvirus, none of these viruses to date were anything quite like COVID-19. Both genetically and how they make people sick.
To conflate the common cold with COVID-19 would be like saying all vegetables are carrots.October 8, 2020 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm in reply to: Joe Biden Criminal? #1908288

Because the rioters may be left leaning, doesn’t mean all left leaning are rioters (or support rioting)
Joe Biden on May 31st:
“Protesting such brutality is right and necessary. It’s an utterly American response. But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not.”
On June 2nd:
“There’s no place for violence, no place for looting or destroying property or burning churches or destroying businesses […] we need to distinguish between legitimate peaceful protest and opportunistic violent destruction”
On August 30th:
“The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable .as a country we must condemn the incitement of hate and resentment that led to this deadly clash. It is not a peaceful protest when you go out spoiling for a fight.”
Yet the Republicans are so keen to say what you just did in order to besmirch the left. As Jason Miller, advisor to Trump so blatantly lied in the following statement:
“Joe Biden has sat idly by for months, refusing to condemn violence and chaos from his allies in Democrat-run cities.”October 6, 2020 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm in reply to: finally realistic covid advice #1907434
Why should people quarantine more than they have to? Why should testing not be done because they are sometimes not available. And most importantly, why exactly do you see testing
as a bad thing??October 6, 2020 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm in reply to: finally realistic covid advice #1907345
Because asking people to stay home for 14 days (along with the people they live with) every time they develop a cough, isn’t realistic and will not be followed. Asking people to quarantine until test results come in as negative is.
Why this is so difficult to understand and such a terrible thing is beyond me.
The rest of your comment seems to be you raging against local politicians. Not pertinent to my original comment.October 6, 2020 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm in reply to: finally realistic covid advice #1907331
How can antibodies be relied upon when
A. We don’t know how long antibodies last for.
B. It’s very likely Kawasaki disease in adults triggered by COVID is very possibly caused by anti-bodies.October 6, 2020 3:04 pm at 3:04 pm in reply to: finally realistic covid advice #1907327
Sure. That’s great thinking.
Why not just completely live in denial? Let COVID do its thing and whoever does dies?
The point of testing, as it apparently it isn’t obvious to you, is to ensure the individual (that either may have been exposed, or showing symptoms) to test and if positive continue to isolate in order to not spread the virus to others.
Statistics is not the primary purpose of testing.October 6, 2020 12:16 pm at 12:16 pm in reply to: finally realistic covid advice #1907265
1. Who are the non political medical community? Scientists of other countries? Countries whose politicians aren’t petty enough to politicise a pandemic? Because many of them (especially the likes of South Korea and Vietnam who are handling this so much better) all encourage mask wearing.
2. Much like Trump champions the use of Hydroxyclorquinie, a “non proven” treatment, why not encourage the use of masks which, by the science we do have, have a good chance of slowing the spread of the virus?
3. You refer to better advice then masks. What exactly is this advice??
4. How is 210k deaths a good result?? It is far worse then any other countryOctober 1, 2020 6:01 pm at 6:01 pm in reply to: Joe Biden seemed to be using some sort of earpiece during the debate #1906355

There is a widely available video of Gavin McInnes from March 2017, in which he says “I felt myself defending the super far-right Nazis just because I was sick of so much brainwashing and I felt like going, ‘Well, they never said it didn’t happen. What they’re saying is it was much less than six million and that they starved to death and weren’t gassed, that they didn’t have supplies,”
He also uploaded a video titled “10 Things I Hate About Jews,” which was subsequently retitled as “10 Things I Hate About Israel.”October 1, 2020 9:45 am at 9:45 am in reply to: Trump Endorsing White Supremacists #1906177
You literally just copied and pasted the very first definition of “authoritarian” that comes up on Google. If you had to google the term, perhaps you should re-do first grade with me.

Sure I know what dementia is and how to recognize its onset.
You’ll see symptoms like semantic paraphrasia (“I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges, the oranges of that investigation”), phonemic paraphasia (“Betanyahu”, “bigly”), tangential speech (careening from one thought to the next in a parade of non sequiturs, frequently interrupting oneself, ), confusing people and generations (“Tim Apple”, “My father is German. Right? Was German. And born in a very wonderful place in Germany”), finding a MoCA test “very hard”, periodically struggling with basic mobility (like walking down a ramp or drinking a glass of water)…. The list goes on and on.
The occasional gaffe like using the word “million” instead of “thousand” is not a sign of dementia.
