DANGER NO SWIMMING ALLOWED!
punctuated up by a Yeshiva bochur who really wanted to go swimming:
Danger? No, swimming allowed!January 19, 2012 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm in reply to: Would you post NEGATIVE Info about yeshiva/Sem/Camps?? #1193660
yes it is lashon hara to post it here.
in private discussions with an individual who needs to know the information, it may be permitted. when it is and isnt needs Halachic guidance.
you dont see the negative, damaging reports, i presume, because the current moderators are watching for this, as i used to.
welcome back 80; we miss you. Even when you post as feivel it doesn’t have the same ooomph
jhere are certain individjuals on this website who “know” a lot of facts but are totally ignorant about Jiddishkeit and its basic principles.
as a moderator ji was able to jelete the vast mayority of his posts.
im afraid this one particular individjual is now going to boldly reemerge and flood the cr with misinformation and misunderstanding.
please everyjone do jour best to ijnore and not encouraje it.
its discussed in the Gemorrah, i think Yevamos.
the inyan is complicated and i dont recall it. one was the wife of the other ones brother or something like that. depending on whos baby it was one of them would be able to do Yibum, something like that, i forget.
Gehinnom isnt simple.
generally you are correct
it is a terrible awesome process of cleansing.
there are those that burn for eternity (hitler, bilam for example, i think korach also). this is a pure punishment.
there are many opinions among the Meforshim as to what the punishment is, but most agree that no one alive really knows.
the name gehinnom comes from the valley (ge) of Hinom in Yerushalaim where they would burn certain tamei things. there was always a fire burning there.
some say gehinnom is an intense, almost intolerable shame over your aveirahs that are visible to everyone
some say it is Hashem laughing at ones foolishness.
Moderator-80: You can believe in gehennom and corporal punishment without advocating it as a means of ENFORCEMENT. Which is “fire and brimstone” religion is. I think the premise of Judaism is positive, unlike that of the Christains. .
the premise of Judaism in this regard is that there is reward AND PUNISHMENT in this world and certainly in the next for ALL our actions.
there are consequences NEGATIVE and positive.
Gehinnom is a fundamental concept as is the reward in the next worldOctober 28, 2011 6:05 pm at 6:05 pm in reply to: Do Online Halachic Discussions Cause Some to be Nichshal in Aveiros? #868053
its 3 clicks
there is some kind of software problem or something today
i dont know where the thread went
ill try to get it back eventually
i havent time right now
i fixed the profile
youll have to tell me exactly where that post is in order for me to do anything
gehinnom is VERY fundamental to Judaism
i agree with you observ
the mods have no control over that
how are ya?
i deliberately gave the wrong address
i didnt want anyone to be able to find those old federal reserve notes you buried in your back yard , you know the ones next to the elm tree on the south west side
lay off zeeskite
i know him well
and for a 32 year old dental hygienist in baltimore i find him to be quite reliable, except for that illegal drug incident last year, which i will NOT reveal the details of. just because the police thought that 2346 west delancy street was the correct address, could be they made a mistake.
just shows how easily information can be disemminated even totally innocently
something like that
this is not a good idea
what do you think, jothar?
im a big fan of his sense of humor
similar to mine but more clever
i think im getting the hang of it though
some homes have separate showers, like in the basement next to the workout room.
i think im making that up
probably popa is starting to wake up
its an audio 1 min answer to this question by Rabbi Leff with sources.
it is assur for women as well as men,
but the Chochomim instituted a Takana that women are allowed to talk to each other when in a public bathroom that men might enter, so that men will be aware of their presence.
seems he says we dont poskin that way in public bathrooms today
but i THINK i heard in the past that women ARE allowed to talk in bathrooms in homes
probably its not a simple answer like most things in Halachah
good question, thus the hesitancy in my post
but i think it doesnt apply to women
dont know why
i did once hear why
but i dont recall
speaking in a bais kisay?
i *think* its assur for men to sing in the shower
(assuming the shower is located in the bathroom)
humming is *probably* ok
i think its ok for women, but im not positive.October 27, 2011 9:08 pm at 9:08 pm in reply to: Do Online Halachic Discussions Cause Some to be Nichshal in Aveiros? #868042

being emes does not make something mutar to say
i dont want to close this thread but were not going to have another discussion of the Halachas of handshaking here.
last time there was so much ignorance and misinformation about it that i wouldnt be surprised if some people actually were nichshal in this most serious aveira because of that thread.
i dont know about Kashrus issues, but dolphins are very sensitive to mercury ingestion.
when you feed tuna to your pet dolphin ALWAYS make sure the label says dolphin-safe
i just realized
he must be asking about morris and larry
you know, those guys in zion illinois that worked out that great system for winning in pinochle
i have done some research online
although i couldnt find a single reference to it (so i understand that you couldnt find anything either during YOUR research)
the only thing i could find was something about an old fisherman on the river zion in michigan who played out his line and was trolling for large mouthed bass.
sorry couldnt find anthing more specific
im not talking only about paskening
im basically asking the op: “what are you referring to when you say Kavanah?”
Kavanah for what?
its a complicated question
kavanah that you are aware of the act that you are doing?
kavanah that you are doing a mitzva?
kavanah that you are doing a particular mitzvah?
kavanah that you intend to be yoitzei the mitzvah?
particular kavanah associated with that mitzvah?
when does the kavanah have to be present?
im sure there are lots more variables i cant think of right now, and more that im not aware of at all.
all of the above ones are subject to complex disagreements among the Rishonim
i took a quick poll
no one here has ever heard of it
as far as the cat thing
that makes no sense
popa and i are two multiple personalities inhabiting one body
i thought that was common knowledge here
see our respective subtitles
im smarter than him but hes funnier
he also likes capital letters, otherwise were pretty much the same
first i deleted this
then i decided, at popas urging, why not post it?
let everyone have their fun
so well try it for a while
i thought an oxymoron was a guy who tries to climb mt everest without any oxygen cannisters
Healthy Diet Chocolate Fudge
mix 1 lb sugar with 2 quarts chocolate syrup
melt 8 sticks of butter and mix together
cook at 400 deg for 20 min
makes 2 servings
he might have to tweak it a bit to get it to fit the diet criteria exactly
if it has anything to do with your previous screenname
moderator-80 is well aware of that
if you will briefly let mod-80 know why you want to contact him he might be agreeable
but mod-80 has learned to keep private communications to a stark minimum, for a variety of reasons.
