anyone have any luck finding this?
Are you comparing someone who deliberately talks to someone whose phone accidentally goes off?
True. mistakes do happen. as long as the ‘culprit’ is responsible and shuts it off as quickly as possible why should we embarrass him more? he’s usually beet red before the shh’ing begins
a car honking outside, a truck backing up, and a herd of elephants stampeding are also more disruptive but that isn’t really the point here.
You’re correct. As someone who leaves his phone home when going to shul and someone who never shhh’s, I concluded that the shhh’ing is significantly more disruptive. It doesn’t make the cell phone guy right, but if he shuts it off right away just leave him be. Most of the time the shhh’ing starts after the phone stops anyway.
Thanks! it’s worth it for his shiurim!
If the OU and now the Star-K are out, there are significantly fewer national products that you can eat. :-/
Allegedly Pomegranate in Brooklyn imported a sweetener from Israel that tastes better than sweet and low.
Saysme- I’m leaning towards the former. Even if you somehow managed to get all the plaque and tartar off your teeth (which I doubt) your inflamed gums would be a dead giveaway.
I figured you would use a competent dentist.
unrelated, what brew kit do you use for your homemade beer?
As a dentist I can say with absolute certainty that any competent dentist can tell when someone only ‘changes the oil’ right before ‘going to the mechanic’
Agreed 100% Age isn’t always an indicator of maturity.
I’ve always assumed that guys should start dating when they feel ready and mature. By ‘suggesting’ to them to start dating earlier, we run the risk of people starting before they are mature enough.
I live in a community where all you can buy is sabras. It’s ok but not great. I once had chummus from pomegranate in Brooklyn and really liked it.

I’m just a casual reader and occasional poster to the coffee room. I guess I’m a relative outsider who doesn’t get the nuances and subtleties of the coffee room personalities. For that I apologize. That being said, I’m sure there are other casual browsers who may be as unfamiliar as I am and may have missed the distinction. Thanks for clarifying.February 11, 2013 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm in reply to: Should Harassing Other Posters Be Allowed in the CR? #929098
PBA- how do you explain your treatment of some of the other posters?
And I quote…
“Wow. You really know even less than nothing. It really is quite bewildering.”
Sound familiar?February 11, 2013 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm in reply to: Should Harassing Other Posters Be Allowed in the CR? #929090
Does that include being disrespectful to people who you don’t agree with?
Whatever liqueur you choose, put it in a chocolate shot-glass (on sale on groupon) let it sit, drink the liqueur, and then eat the shot-glass!
Do not post links
After dating many girls like that, one of them explained her reasoning to me. She just wants someone who is available to eat lunch with and someone who could be home early every night.
I don’t know if that applies to every girl (I hope not).January 28, 2013 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm in reply to: Having kids while having a history of genetic disorder #924813
“We must trust that these children are part of Hashem’s plan.”
Does that mean we should allow our kids to play with knives? If ch’v something were to happen it’s all part of Hashem’s plan. Of course not! we have a chiyuv to guard ourselves and our children both after and before they are born. A vast majority of ashkenazi Jews do dor yesharim prior to getting engaged. According to your logic we should abolish testing altogether because what’s supposed to happen will happen. Of course there is hashgacha but we have to do our histadlus too!January 28, 2013 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm in reply to: Having kids while having a history of genetic disorder #924812
” “Heter to have kids”? You need no such thing. You have a *chiyuv* to have kids. “
Is it a *chiyuv* to bring sick children into the world?!January 11, 2013 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm in reply to: Having kids while having a history of genetic disorder #924785
I generically know a person who has 7 out of his 10 kids who have CF. Is this appropriate?
I’m not upset that the kids were born and of course we have to help him in helping his kids. I guess my question is was this responsible of him?
Just as a follow up, we both ended up inviting the spouses and all but 3 or 4 declined. So we ended up being menchlich and it worked out.
I’m sorry I posted this question and started this sinas chinam-fest. Oreos are not that good.
In the hospital I work in some girls wear skirt scrubs and some just wear skirts over their scrub pants. From comments I’ve gotten from patients and co-workers it seems that wearing a skirt over regular pants is a lot less noticeable (thus more tznius) than a scrub skirt.
I found a very interesting podcast from the OU about this exact topic. He basically says that you CANNOT rely on this. Attached is a link to the 6 minute shiur
Well said brony
I use “plumbers lamp wick” in those brass tubes with extra virgin olive oil bought at a grocery. Beautiful flame every time.
You can get the wicks in most hardware stores. It comes in a spool that can last for several years.
so if it’s ishto kegufo i would only need to set one seat for both (assuming the hall let mixed seating)
