Can’t believe it!!!!
Who found this one? (and yes, that was me, eons ago!!) Ten points for that bump..
Hey, how’d you find out my name? I sanitized, disinfected, sterilized and decontaminated my Coffee Room Response Lab. All bugs, cameras, mics, transmitters, and microscopic spying and snooping apparatus should have been zapped useless.
ps you can be sure I knew who it was directed to. It was a meek attempt at humor.
I suppose that last question was directed to me.
And the answer is (surprise, surprise!) NO. I recently check my head out (and in). All systems go. And I’ve got a Certificate of Normalcy (valid for 1 day) to prove that.
Have no fear Shimon, it wasn’t directed at you, it was a modFebruary 27, 2019 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm in reply to: What is the problem with the internet (rhetorical) #1687170
(Hey, where am I?)
Mammele: Actually when I walk in the streets people look (peer, peek, snoop) at me. There’s really no need to take (r”l) a picture of me! And even if I’d be sitting in an airplane (not in the cockpit), people all around will (again, heaven forfend) look (stare, peer, peek or even snoop) at me. So an additional camera peek should be no worse. As long as something’s not invading my privacy, why should I, or anyone else, care. Anything in the public I should suppose is, um, public. No?
Ye, there’s a wealth of information out there. The World Wide Web IS world wide, encompassing much. Entering someone’s name, phone number or email address can get you limited info or even a picture. You know what? A massive phone book can do the same!!!

OISH… (and gosh too!!)
That last line was supposed to be a joke (OH! + duh!). Like something of a MOD coming out and saying that he/she actually sees me, sees my face. (and knows my name is Shimon!) How I love dissecting jokes..
And now to that line about me being a shikel (piece) of a musician…
Actually I am. Right. Just a piece. And no.. while a lot of people have heard me… no such pictures circulate on the web with my name associated. Nobody is actually interested in snooping my out of “hiding”. בתוך עמי אנכי יושבת. Nothing big or interesting,,, At all.
I may have dropped HERE some hints of drops of specifics… still my anonymousity remains to this day (and a thank you to the mods for keeping it that way).
So I actually don’t care if google records how many times I buy from Walmart. Or which brand tissues I prefer. I recently checked the tissue boxes thru and thru – no hidden devices, electronical chemical or biological included. Same with all my Walmart purchases. I sent all the stuff thru a body scanner, a magnetic scanner, an x-ray scanner. They all return negative, so my stuff is still (as of now) safe from bugs, transmitters, mics and cameras.
Writer: From the fact that you address me here, using my screen name, I surmise that despite the fact that Iv’e been around here for about eight years already, no one here besides a few individuals gained access to my personal information. Neither my birthday. Not even my SS#!
I have a niggling feeling that the world out there is not so interested in me. Actually I did a google search of my name (real one, the one you DON’T KNOW) and NOTHING showed up!! No, I’m not a ‘macher’ and don’t try to be. So I’m not such a “household name”. At all. Also, I’m sensible, I post and publish what’s sensible, what I feel is safe, and keep the rest to myself. I’m not really sure the world out there needs to know what and how much I ate for supper last night (or EVERY NIGHT), who my friends are, or what my gory hobbies are.
There’s a slight difference between being cautious and paranoid. <<HEY SHIMON, YOUR FACE LOOKS…>>
Are you aware the the CR is laden with microscopic bugs, microphones and cameras? <<NOT TRUE>> They can figure out anything about you they wish, they have tiny cameras on this site, peeking at you. <<NO WE DON’T>> They may deny it… in fact I’m sure they’ll deny it… I have you warned. Don’t ever post in pajamas!!!<<GOTCHA!!!>>
How do you read?
There’s an algorithm I always use:
Take the average of how much Torah you already know, plus how much you intend to still learn, plus how much time and effort you know you will commit to Torah study. Then multiply that by the square root of your age minus the amount of best friends you have. That should give you your result.
Seriously. get what you think will be useful. I, personally, prefer the mini sets, I’m often on the go. It allows me to learn instantly on the go.
Wow. I remember… that’s how my assignment looked… (before the days of copy & paste) OUCH!!!
We already settled into what we’re going to learn אי”ה. I’d appreciate other tips, advice, ideas. Like how to go about it, how to keep it up, sound exciting, accomplish something…
I know (with my Ruach HaKodesh) someone who always uses the Holocaust to “prove” that Chachamim never had, nor will have Ruach HaKodesh, Taas Torah and etc.
And he’s wrong every single time (he doesn’t have Ruach HaKodesh!)
They use the mantra (they were indoctrinated, force-fed, since youth) “look at this great Rabbi, why didn’t he save his Kehilla?” And they attempt, with that and other ploys, over and over again, to try to lessen our adherence to Chachmei, Gedolei Yisroel. They try time and again to wean us from our עיני העדה…
I believe I once answered those claims (many years and many screen names ago!) I’ll try now – from memory:
1) A Tzadikkk’s Ruach HaKodesh comes from “Kodesh” – HaShem (Oh really?!) So although HaShem generally stands by and guides his closest, HaShem, in His infinite intelligence, for reasons we as mortals cannot fathom, decides at times to withhold his assistance.
2) That era was an era unparallel in Jewish history, actually in all of world history. A time of Heavenly “Anger” (ריתחא). A great, painful הסתר פנים (again – for reasons known only to HaShem) where HaShem so to speak turned His face away from His nation. And we’ve heard from our Greats – they felt their divine assistance vanished. ואבדה חכמת חכמיו ובינת נבניו תסתתר, a great a fearful prophesy, was said regarding this terrible era. So NATURALLY some Gedolim lost their powers. Others were extended unquestionable Ruach HaKodesh EVEN in that horrible period.
3) Certain Gedolim understood all too well, and decided it was better to perish in this world and not in the next. It was Nebach done all through our long and bitter Galus. We mention a few on Tisha Ba’av, where a father would take his children…
Syag: You put it down beautifully!
and DY: I’m almost sure the Gemarrah there is referring to actual prophesy, Nevuah, certainly a higher category than Ruach HaKodesh. So yes, they were divinely inspired to discern that prophesy departed with the passing of those three Neviim.
RY: Some are disguised behind their known tzidkus. Meaning – their true greatness and piety is far beyond what they are known in public as and for.
Obviously that “top Rabbi” doesn’t have Ruach HaKodesh… So how is he to be believed regarding others?!? Isn’t that ludicrous?!
Along the same lines: those who claim there is no Daas Torah, obviously did not have Daas Torah, isn’t it ludicrous for them to make a statement regarding Daas Torah?!?
DY: ‘scuse me!?
DY: Perhaps you forgot my bio… Folks at TorahMate put me at the giving end… they think I’m capable of making a change in someone’s life. I’m asking for tips, pointers and advice.
(what else does everybody do?)
Wrong thread… this is for the working class only… Otta hereFebruary 6, 2019 6:23 pm at 6:23 pm in reply to: Is it healthy for yeshiva bochurim to learn from a New Vilna Shas? #1675641
Hello and WB. I don’t post there that often (as I should be), I remember that one, Rebbitzen. I think it was because of something I complained about… the name didn’t sound too “eidel”. I’m sorry if I read it wrongly, or if I hurt anyone’s feelings in the process. RY, were you posting way back then? I don’t seem to recall..
First of all I don’t think you need a printer to post here in the CR. So even if you didn’t’ have a printer, you still could have been posting away…
And now, second point… we were doing all that research… which is the best printer… I takes a long time to decide… There are thousands of models to look at, investigate, probe, ponder… I don’t think seven months is enough,,,,
..back to work… model xxppxxjjxx443366, paper intake unit…
I do nothing. (That’s why I’m here posting away)
I HATE my job.
Like they taught me in my five hour course:
People’s inner self, their REAL character, middos come out when one is at the wheel. That’s the place where he/she is totally surrounded by strangers, is more or less anonymous / hidden behind the windows of the car. That’s where the real – true inner self shines or …
What if the ‘F1’ Button gets jammed, how would you get help.
Others could get confused with the restart/reset button (the one they always use after a successful crash)
oh… and in any event, I’ll volunteer…
I did a lot of things years ago…
and the understander should understand…
How do all these supposedly “””new””” posters know so much all about old time CR posters???
nostalgia … all those posts … posters …
Allowed to call her by her first name?
How you get them in the first place?
First you go into hiding for about, say, a half year, then you come out with a ‘zaftig’ piece…. that’s how you get them in the fist place.
Oh… btw… forgot to say Howdy!!! Long time no see here. (Found a job r”l?)
Can’t believe it!!!!!
Happy birth day!!!
I look at the oldies with such ‘interesting’ feelings and emotions …. so so many years and lifes ago!!!!November 19, 2018 10:51 pm at 10:51 pm in reply to: Ebay and other marketplace sites should ban multiple items on the same listing #1626464
What happened? A non-troll thread? I always look forward for you latest…
(anyways, if you narrow down your search (and there are ways) than you’ll get what you wanted, in order)November 19, 2018 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm in reply to: should jews become pilots becaese off all the dangers involved #1626449
It’s too dangerous down here? No – I don’t think so… Try it out. You may actually even enjoy it (living here in the planet “Earth”)
Maybe your question to us esteemed members of the CR was: Could or may one become a pilot in face of some dangers involved in flying. And I’ll answer that too. Iv’e tried that too. No, not dangerous at all – if you know what you’re doing and follow proper procedures…
Hairy Feldman? Commonly known as Esav.November 16, 2018 8:34 am at 8:34 am in reply to: Reminder: Don’t keep things you care about in your moldy basement. #1625013
I remember a thread somewhere started by someone about not putting things in a moldy basement. Then it got moldy…
Ever heard of the dentist, after examining a guy’s mouth, calls his wife “Call back the Shadchan, tell him we’ll go for full support”
Ask Hairy Feldman…November 4, 2018 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm in reply to: Calling 311 on someone blocking your driveway is mesira #1616789
In my humbleness, I think it makes a difference if the owner just wants the offending vehicle towed away, or to be fined. Gemarah (I think) and Halachah (I suppose too) permits to remove (at violator’s expense) something worgfully blocking you.

If it’s going to stay there and the intention is just to get even …. Don’t know.
Likewise if it’s going to stay there and his intention is to teach him a lesson… Good Shailah
WAA!!!! WAAA!!! I wan my tzummy. I wan it NOW. WAAA!!!! <<OOPS! WRONG SCREEN NAME>>
How I miss the old style… (Old topics, old posters, old issues (old style of ‘civilized debates’) too!!)
Still there…. (still a kid)
We should be gezunt or the winter should be a gezunte one?
Who and WHAT?!?
Tell me how you’d like me to respond…. Why can’t you call her? I’m so not following the CR… it’s been ages since the last time I really had some good time here. So I don’t know who’s who and what’s what. Are you making your own Sukah, meals, festivities? Is there a reason your missing her just now? (If you’re around over “here”, why don’t you drop in to our Succah? Frogette and little me would enjoy guest for the Holidays…) Can’t make you miss your mom any less, but we could probably fill you up with enough positive, conducive, uplifting, happy feelings/ moods / thoughts/ energy to counter other negative ones…
HAPPY TIMES ARE COMING!!!!
(my campaign promise)
Thank you, for you kind words, 29, Joseph.
Apparently someone did have me in mind I’m starting to see things B”H lightening up… וה’ הטוב יגמור.
I’ll repost for the sake of someone with a drop of honesty and sechel hayashar….
I wrote on this exact topic years ago, when this ‘thing’ started out, r”l.
So here we have people beseeching, begging, praying for their very dear life, they know their life is in the balance, and on the other side these guys are blithely dancing away… Sure – swaying (swigging.. uch) to the tune of השבינו… yeah. That’s for sure “Return us”… You take a peek at those clippings and you get such a feeling of nausea.. “Ribono Shel Olam, look at our tzaros”, one step in, “we have sinned much”, one step out. “Avos Haolam, our holy forefathers”, one pace forward, “please intercede on our behalf”, two paces back… FEH.
How many people passed away R””L this year, how would they have liked to grab ANY opportunity to push in ONE MORE earnest Tefillah in time….
The fish of yesteryear had more sechel…. Anyone with a drop of sense (sold out) knows that these are solemn days, days of awe, meant for a specific purpose. You guessed right, probably not meant for dancing away the night merrily .. Hardly the main activity fitting for ימים נוראים.
If you must, if you can’t control yourself, go into the privacy of a bathroom and sing your lungs out “אשמנו”, “כי עליך הורגנו”, “ולנו בושת הפנים”… No, I’m not judging you, if you don’t know any better, but kindly leave US out of your urges… no need to publicize it. No need to broadcast your contempt of Heavenly Court. כי הוא נורא ואיום is to be taken at literal sense, whichever direction you read.
How would you think the Navi Yirmiyahu would react knowing that his words השיבנו written with such sorrow, such feeling, such holiness, has turned into the songbooks of “Slichos Concerts” (Vivace tempo). We all know what happens when words of Torah are taken out and made into songs… how much more for this – AND FOR WHAT ITS BEING USED FOR!
To the rest of us, take a cursory glance at the words, let it fill you with the feelings they were meant to convey, to occupy one’s conscious with. Let the words envelope us with the correct sense of dread and awe of the Ribono Shel Olam, His Yom HaDin. Let us cherish these feelings… let us carry over the feelings of these minutes of true Yirah, Teshuva, Ahavha over into our new year.
Let us ALL be gebenched with a Kseiva Vchasima Tova – each and every one of us. May HaShem shower his blessings on us, may he shine His countenance upon us… bless us with very LIFE. A fulfilling, productive life, doing Ratzon HaShem with much health, nachas, wealth. AND TRUE HAPPINESS!!!
