    CA: asocial is the opposite of social; meaning you’re avoiding social interaction.

    CTL, as a lawyer you know that the vast majority of private sector jobs are “at will” employment, where the employer can fire employees for any or even no reason (other than a discriminatory/protected minority basis). As such, a fake degree might land a job otherwise the applicant had no chance of, whereas if he’s later fired he only lost what he otherwise wouldn’t have ever had. As far as unemployment, my understanding is that most states will not deny it based on a pre-employment claim. But even to the extent that they might, the now former employee likely gained a lot more in the months/years he was employed than losing a few months of unemployment.

    As far as unions are concerned, they rarely represent the vast majority of private sector employees in the first place.

    Gadol: It’s difficult to believe that the firms you reference will be calling the universities of all the hundreds of applicants or dozens of potential interviewees for each and every of the many hundreds of positions they fill each year. That would take quite a huge amount of resources. How, exactly, were they verifying every interesting applicant’s resume they receive.

    All the above, of course, is no excuse to fib on a resume despite the fact that it is well known that a large majority of resumes are quite inflated in their claims compared to the reality. This is merely in response to the original point here.

    AJ: That’s akin to arguing that since Christianity has the “Old Testament”, therefore Christianity has a Jewish connection.

    I met someone from this site for lunch. He brought his copy of that morning’s New York Times (which was his bible, lhavdil) and I showed him all the lies in any story of his choosing.

    He went home a convert (to real Yiddishkeit.)

    Churches don’t give religious sermons on July 4 or on Memorial Day. Yet they did and do for Thanksgiving. That gives a good indication Thanksgiving has a foreign religious nature.

    Furthermore, the early modern American synagogues that celebrated Thanksgiving with a sermon and other ways were clearly imitating the Churches. That was also wrong.

    Three IS an issue of Avoda Zora. There is a machlokes haposkim whether it is okay to celebrate, but those who assur seem to have a better understanding of the historical context of Thanksgiving, which includes religious celebration.

    I’m a nuclear physicist. A while back I used to be a semiconductor engineer, but the field is high-pressure and very competitive. In my current occupation there’s much less competitive pressures and development can be done on a much relaxed schedule. It helps with family life.

    At nights, I dabble in giving Shiurim and answering a Shaila hotline.

    The main site started on a blog platform in 2005, the main site moved to this current domain/platform in 2006 and the coffee room section started in 2008. Login registrations/usernames are shared between the (current) main site and the coffee room section but the coffee room profiles only show coffee room posts.

    Since you claim “every Rov on the planet”who spoke about it, please name the three most chushuv/prominent such Rovs, which should be very easy for you since you can pick from “every Rov, unless of course you just made that up.

    “in the dark, I believe. Otherwise, you can safely retreat.”
