I've split this off.  Simply too much commentary on that thread on one article for it to be a master thread.

If it's an article that is controversial or may generate a lot of discussion it probably can have it own thread...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Interesting Non-profit agency that collects data every year to put out a list of most corrupt countries-least corrupt.

As expected, US, Canada, Australia, UK etc. are up toward the top of the list (least corrupt) and North Korea, Somalia, Afghanistan etc are toward the bottom of the list (most corrupt).

Notice how Israel is ranked one of the best in the Middle East.....

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

'Turn Off All Electronic Devices:' And What Happens if You Don't
I never turn off my phone till I lose service in the air... Enough years of avoiding mashkichim in yeshiva has served me well to not get caught by flight attendants :)

Lol

I once asked the guy sitting next to me why he didn't turn off his phone. He said he never does; "I always keet my phone on when flying, and so far, plan never crashed..."

I thought it's better for bbm to turn it off before the flight, as this way it registers as off, whereas if it's out of reception the message might get stuck and not come afterwards
