Just got off the phone with the most helpful UA agent ever. Long live the callback link!

Even got to brush up on my rusty Portuguese, though that may have contributed to her helpfulness.

You need to give a seminar just on people skills. It plays such a big part in getting things done.

Donuts in shul this morning included chocolate custard, cinnamon, glazed, chocolate sprinkle, and white frosting.
Because what we need before a 3 day YT is more caloric intake.

Hidden city tickets 30+ years ago: I had the pleasure of having my grandpa staying with us over the chag. He shared with us a great amount of stories from the past. One of the stories that really popped out, was an old time version of hidden city tickets. He told us that he flew a Concorde flight from NYC to Paris to Tel Aviv and back for just $1k instead of $8k each way.

How'd he get it so cheap? His brother booked him a flight that originated in Nigeria to NYC to chop down the price. Obviously, he skipped that flight. Now, back in the day they had a booklet or something similar with all the tickets for the full trip attached. Only problem is, my grandpa's brother forgot to tell him to detach the Nigeria ticket! They stopped my grandpa at the airport, but he managed to convince them to let him on the plane.

After a while, Concorde figured out the loophole and stopped selling tickets through Nigeria to Americans. To get around it, my grandpa and his brother got themselves Nigerian passports!

I would love to have CV verify if this story could be true ;)

I've rented dozens (hundreds?) of cars in this country, and this is a first. Also 2nd car to have BT. Presumably the reason for lack of cruise control in as I said, very few places where it's practical to use.

They thought I was lying when I said it's $2/box until they pulled out a calculator.

So I'm an avid coffee drinker but it's my first time getting tea at Starbucks.  I'm discussing with the barista, trying to wrap my head around the pricing model.  They have tall, grande, and vente.  You get only 1 tea bag no matter what size you choose, so the only difference is more water = weaker tea. 

1) Why am I paying more for weaker tea?
2) Will they refill my cup with hot water when I finish my tall?
3) Will they give me a vente cup filled with hot water on the side?

Please explain.

Yeah, but obviously they are making less money on the deal because they have to pay a percentage of the sale to Ebay.

Yes, but there are people on Ebay who wouldn't go to target.com so they are attracting more market.

That I get, But there should be a price difference that somehow pushes people to look at Target.com. I think its silly that they are losing money on Ebay

Oh hold with KE to get a quote for JFK-ICN-TLV in F.

Agent finds space, I ask how many miles.

Says he will check, silence for a few minutes, followed by a "What the hell?!?"

Now on hold...

Came back and said he will call me back within 30 minutes.

Why would it not be available?
Prob will be a whopping 160K each way though.

He just called back.
Apologized 20 times.

It is available, 160K as I expected.  Plus $450 tax/YQ.
Direct match with KVS A class.
ITA priced it as $14,574.30.

Anyone try booking KE to TLV with AS, DL, or FB?

First of all, do they release F to partners? I don't think so.

Would you mind sharing itinerary details? Total hours in transit, length of connection, etc.

Also, 160k is RT?

No F to AS or DL, dunno about FB offhand.
But J is still a good option.

160 each way :(

More useful from LAX where the flight times to TLV is much longer than ex-NYC TATL and shorter than ex-NYC TPAC.

You assume that ebay chargers them the same rate they charge for small customers?

You also have to remember that selling in their stores costs them overhead.

Neither of those points answers his question. Even if ebay charges Target less than others it is still costing them something (as opposed to selling only on their own site).
As far as overhead goes. Why would there be lower overhead filling orders through ebay as opposed to just on their website (which theyre paying to maintain anyhow)?

Why all the edges???
By Stormin' Normavator - September 21, 2011
I gave this product a shot after a particularly opinionated and cultured (He's been to Europe, so you know he's legit) co-worker insisted I try this. In short, I very much dislike it. Everyone knows that the very best part of the brownie is the middle, and this pan all but eliminates this. After baking, there was approximately 6.4 cubic inches of actual edible brownie. Very wasteful.

Quite frankly I am disappointed with this product and anyone who thinks an 'all edge' brownie is preferable to the warm, delicious center.

Hmm, we actually bought one like this from BBD but only used it once as it didn't really make the crunchy yet gooey perfect corners that we love.
Though that one does seem to have very good reviews, might be worth trying out.

(if I may borrow the expression) Let this also inspire you to add to the different wikis (just maybe not the more sensitive ones ;) ) and share your experiences with others (give, don't just take). But yeah, most importantly, even though this is basically what I was offering up, don't be lazy and just ask Q's - read through the posts. There is a ton of knowledge here than can be attained by just reading.

Has anyone ever noticed what a scam it is to be 'in style'? When my family looks at old pictures they are always embarrassed at how they looked back then even though at the time they thought they were so cool.

Lately I've been noticing people in shul with the most bizarre eyeglasses and thinking how we used to laugh at the people in my parents' wedding album for wearing THE SAME glasses.

Think of how much money is spent on these concocted styles....

I'm not looking for the way to get an app removed from the app store. I'm looking for the name of the thing you file (I think it's the equivelant of a cease and desist for digital content?)

Reading a pregnant blogger booking 2 trips with plans to leave the newborn with the parents before even knowing what's yet to come.  It'll hit. Just wait for it.

We're expecting our first any day now, and over the last few months, I kept telling my wife, "this is our last trip before the baby and our lives get crazy..." Must have gone on 4 or 5 "last trips."  :)
I feel like it's irresponsible to book anything now for the coming months for the exact reason you mentioned. Still have theoretical plans...just don't tell my wife  :D

Wow! Now that's  impressive. But I'm sure at this point you have it down to a science. My wife and I just took our first flight with our two children and were dreading it even though it was only about an Hour  and a half flight. Although it actually went pretty smooth.

90 minutes is nothing to fear, worst case is a rough 90 minutes.
It's the 10 hour flights that can be scary. Especially if you're in J/F.

You can have everything down to a science, but kids are unpredictable by nature...Holding my breath!

Please enlighten me. I am getting creamed by these car rental places on a daily basis!!!
What is the secret?
Hertz, Budget, and National offer online deals and Free upgrades based on status.
Priceline often offers $19-$29 per day in targeted emails. (small cars, but then they sometimes let you upgrade on-site.)

Universal Lease/Rental in LA - a frum company - charged only $180 per week
for a nice Honda Civic. very good deal - esp. during winter holiday season

They forecasted it for 1 and 1/2 days. You only need to listen.
Not all storms can be forecasted well in advance.
We do have an advance forecast for a possible monster snow storm in about a week. Like 2 feet big.

g.translate can be manipulated. I saw a gross/hilarious example once, related to Jewish politics. I fixed it for them.

They have an amazing system with the machine translations, human input and algorithms etc.

I also use it to check spelling if I type in a foreign language, to see if anything comes out funny, example - in Hebrew mixing letters...

Is it weird to be somewhat offput by a travel blogger who is jewish and reviews pork?
I think, meila you eat pork, but to blog about it with pics?

Am I way off base here?  Is there just no stigma of pork for a non-religious jew?
Entirely possible I'm just out of touch.

You should reach out to him, Dan. You are the shliach to all travel bloggers. I'm not kidding. Maybe your whole success in this area was just to be able to help this one guy. It sounds like your nitzutz is waiting for you.

Bring him to a fancy 5* kosher restaurant, put on tefillin, etc.

Please tell me how it goes.

That's not it.  It's like they're missing that tiny part of the brain that establishes a context to the information its receiving which then enables it to file the information properly.

The sense I get with these guys is they hear the Shabbos davening, and they're like "hey, that's nice! I'm going to use that next time I daven maariv for the amud."  Their brain just doesn't take it to the next level.

Absolutely!
I heard from the organizers of DDSLA that they were amazed at the turnout and the kiddush Hashem and 100% focus and admiration from those who do not typically attend the shul.

I have an idea: Dan does some mileage / M'karev outreach to J. Koum. He'd happily assist fellow Yidden with 10% maaser.
I'm sure he's familiar with tefillin, Kosher, etc..  Hmm... A Tierra Sur event for the Jewish trio: FB, WA, and DDF teams

anyone can scan a page within 30 seconds.. and then respond on another page in 15 seconds.
So, avg pages could be 20-25 pages in 9 minutes... It's just the slower readers that bring it down to 9 pages per visit. (Or the screen is static on the page for half an hour while other job/work is done on another page/screen)

For two values to be different there needs to be a difference (as in subtraction). Since there is nothing you can subtract from one to make a repeating decimal of 9s they must be equal.

Gosh, I always wondered what took them so long. I think you ruined chat for me.
When I thought they were working on me, I was able to handle it, but there's no way I'll have the patience if I know they are working on other clients while I'm waiting.

Follow the squares. Notice how everything moves in the direction you slide if it can. Always look before moving. I've messed up a few bigger blocks because I rushed.
If you think you're almost "out", stop and analyze the board to find a way out, if you catch yourself in time, you might be able to save yourself.

wow! Mazel Tov on 14,416! The game goes well with your name/avatar. Takes a lot of strategic thinking to get that 1024 cube.
Hard to move those items around when they all move together.
(Would be easier if there was another row...  :) )  I've done the moves too quickly. Too much work to catch up on -- I'll have to try my Day #2 later next week.

(I was curious who made it. He did: https://github.com/gabrielecirulli He said it was in his spare time and a 'take off' of 1024. His version looks MUCH better.
   1024: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.veewo.a1024  Although it's a clone of this: http://saming.fr/p/2048/ So, who gets the credit?

The best strategy is to choose a corner and always swipe towards it. And whatever you do make sure your highest valued tile stays in that corner. If you need to move it away, move it right back. I've won twice this way, and always get the 1024 at least

I have a live and let live mentality.

But truth be told, I find a trip to Israel, other than for the yomim tovim is not so exciting at this point. I've done basically every tourist thing imaginable. It's nice to daven vasikin at the kotel, but that is finished by 7 AM and you have to full the rest of your day. That is, until my kids get older and I can do everything from scratch.

I hear both sides. I've spent (on me and many  immediate family members )  so many miles, so much time and money on trips to Israel when sometimes I would have loved to use them for a 1,000 other places and trips.

And don't get me wrong, I love Israel.


But I do wish sometimes my family lived closer so I could use all those miles (and time!) for other trips.

I thought you were going to say he was on the countertop to get the matches on the top shelve of the cabinet.

I've heard stories of getting it to not post to your Credit Report.

Yups.

Its my Citi card which is my first card with them, I did call them to remove the late fee but they didn't want to, I'll try again later,
Regarding my credit report, they only report late payments of you're late 30 days from the due date so that BH not an issue here.

They wanted out, that's clear.

Odds on a sublease vs. retrofitting D to accommodate mainline aircraft?

I don't see them paying $1MM/mo without trying to do something to mitigate that bleeding.

D is worthless without curbside access. Burn it down for the insurance money and move the rental car facility back there instead of the offsite location that D forced it to.

Only way they're getting back any of that dough is the 1 in a million chance another airline wants a major CLE hub or in the more likely event of a UA bankruptcy before 2027.

dell is BEYOND frustrating!! the reps also call you a few times AFTER to discuss if you are satisfied with their help! It seems nice, but i find it rather annoying!
While on the subject, even with proper english, BA call center drives me "mad"! Calling them within the first 24 hours to get your $2.50 or $5 back is totally not worth it, rather eat it and wait to cancel online...

" The truth is that everything you need to know about the moral imbalance between Israel and her enemies can be understood on the topic of human shields. Who uses human shields? Well, Hamas certainly does. They shoot their rockets from residential neighborhoods, from beside schools, and hospitals, and mosques. Muslims in other recent conflicts, in Iraq and elsewhere, have also used human shields. They have laid their rifles on the shoulders of their own children and shot from behind their bodies.

Consider the moral difference between using human shields and being deterred by them. That is the difference we’re talking about. The Israelis and other Western powers are deterred, however imperfectly, by the Muslim use of human shields in these conflicts, as we should be. It is morally abhorrent to kill noncombatants if you can avoid it. It’s certainly abhorrent to shoot through the bodies of children to get at your adversary. But take a moment to reflect on how contemptible this behavior is. And understand how cynical it is. The Muslims are acting on the assumption—the knowledge, in fact—that the infidels with whom they fight, very people whom their religion does nothing but vilify, will be deterred by their use of Muslim human shields. They consider the Jews the spawn of apes and pigs—and yet they rely on the fact that they don’t want to kill Muslim noncombatants.

Now imagine reversing the roles here. Imagine how fatuous—indeed comical it would be—for the Israelis to attempt to use human shields to deter the Palestinians. Some claim that they have already done this. There are reports that Israeli soldiers have occasionally put Palestinian civilians in front of them as they’ve advanced into dangerous areas. That’s not the use of human shields we’re talking about. It’s egregious behavior. No doubt it constitutes a war crime. But Imagine the Israelis holding up their own women and children as human shields. Of course, that would be ridiculous. The Palestinians are trying to kill everyone. Killing women and children is part of the plan. Reversing the roles here produces a grotesque Monty Python skit.

If you’re going talk about the conflict in the Middle East, you have to acknowledge this difference. I don’t think there’s any ethical disparity to be found anywhere that is more shocking or consequential than this."

They are clueless about happenings four thousand years ago but they talk about billions.. Its literally hilarious.

Bones are dated through carbon dating. There are three options of how to deal with the age carbon dating suggests
1. The science is phony
2. God created items on the earth with dated molecular material (in order to trick us? I once asked an Adam gadol how we know that svara is a makor (both in machshava and halacha) and he quoted I believe from the ramchal that that is the faculty which Hashem gave us and He wouldn't lead us astray)
3. The days during Shivas yemei breishis were not regular days but were longer periods

Which do you subscribe to?

I have no problem with the facts in the Torah, the way they have been submitted to myself and all of klall Yisroel for generations...

Its one thing to take casual interest in new "scientific" findings. But to imply that we have to somehow answer, subscribe to, and reconcile our Torah shleima to their "discoveries" is laughable.

No one said anything about chakira.
To quote someone you probably wouldn't "the source of faith is faith itself." And I agree whole heartedly with that (It's from an essay by R' Aron Lichtenstein, which happens to be beautiful).
The central point of the essay:
Quote from: R' Aron Lichtenstein
What I received from all my mentors, at home or in yeshiva, was the key to confronting life, particularly modern life, in all its complexity: the recognition that it was not so necessary to have all the answers as to learn to live with the questions. Regardless of what issues--moral, theological, textual or historical--vexed me, I was confident that they had been raised by masters far sharper and wiser than myself; and if they had remained impregnably steadfast in their commitment, so should and could I
And
Quote from: R' Aron Lichtenstein
"Teach me good discernment and knowledge: for I have believed the commandments." Answers, I of course continued--and continue --to seek, and have found many. But commitment has not been conditioned upon them.
That doesn't mean you ignore the chovos halevavos sha'ar habechinah. It doesn't mean you close your eyes to the world around you. It means you go in with a knowledge that your faith is well rooted in a mesorah which dates backs thousands of years to a national giluy shchina at har sinai which is unshakable.

Surely that would not include pondering how to reconcile faith to science. IMHO it is the exact opposite that is intended. Of course emuna is strengthened through observing nature, and hashems goodness to us.
כו. שְׂאוּ מָרוֹם עֵינֵיכֶם וּרְאוּ מִי בָרָא אֵלֶּה הַמּוֹצִיא בְמִסְפָּר צְבָאָם לְכֻלָּם בְּשֵׁם יִקְרָא מֵרֹב אוֹנִים וְאַמִּיץ כֹּחַ אִישׁ לֹא נֶעְדָּר
כז. לָמָּה תֹאמַר יַעֲקֹב וּתְדַבֵּר יִשְׂרָאֵל נִסְתְּרָה דַרְכִּי מֵיְהֹוָה וּמֵאֱלֹהַי מִשְׁפָּטִי יַעֲבוֹר:
כח. הֲלוֹא יָדַעְתָּ אִם לֹא שָׁמַעְתָּ אֱלֹהֵי עוֹלָם | יְהֹוָה בּוֹרֵא קְצוֹת הָאָרֶץ לֹא יִיעַף וְלֹא יִיגָע אֵין חֵקֶר לִתְבוּנָתוֹ:

It's all about the context! If one is looking to be a maamin, it's easy. If one is looking to be a kofer on the other hand, from the same area of proof for emuna (the awesomeness of nature), can be distorted to kefira. -via scientific interpretations and questions.
If one thinks that everything needs to be rationalized and comprehended by the feeble human mind, (-greek philosophy and modern science), there is no way he can reach real emmuna. Lots of this stuff is spiritual and cannot possibly be comprehended by the sechel.

I subscribe to option 3--that time was elongated during creation due to the simple fact that the sun and its rotation wasn't created until mid-way through the 7 days.

The fact that some people seem to just shut off that part of the brain that prompts inquisitiveness, curiosity, and the ability to "raise questions", is particularly unfortunate, seeing we as a people have long been admired for such traits.

Nailed it:

Flight/Equip.: Jetblue Airways Corp 928 Airbus A320
Depart: Orlando(MCO) Friday, Aug 22 13:25
Arrive: Newark(EWR) Friday, Aug 22 16:13
Stops: non-stop; Miles: 940
Shakeia is at 7:45 and im 30 min from ewr, but I will have checked bag.

To cut it really close, 7:45 - 30 min travel and 15 min fudge time = 7:00 landing or earlier. 3:40 for the flight = 3:20pm  + fudge time = 3:00 take off at latest.
Scheduled takeoff 13:25 (1:25pm)  That gives you up to 1:30 hrs for delays.
You can always leave the airport without your bag and get it from the lost baggage area after Shabbos.


On the other hand, such tight timing may be disrespectful to Shabbos (If you had an important meeting or your son's engagement party - would you time it so closely?) and Chinuch is in what you DO not what you say.

Yeah, saw that. Thanks.

I hate to pay that much when I bought these  (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00134MORE/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1)for $17.

20 cents/oz vs. like 85 cents/oz.

Random doesn't mean "one-off."

Random means "without aim, or out of place."

Anything that fits that category and which does not have a better thread is random for the purposes of this thread.

Reviewing this thread and you'll see many conversations regarding the subject that proceeds for more than "10" posts.

Opossums don't usually carry rabies.  BUT there's been rabid raccoons and cats in Brooklyn.  Exercise EXTREME caution.  Even if an animal seems normal, don't go near it.

China Eastern is cheap, use old planes, have min service, basic rice and noodles meals and the only airline to fly direct from LAX to Shanghai daily.  So if you don't like connecting flights to Shanghai, you have to fly China Eastern.  This is why I ended up on this wild adventure.

Our flight was supposed to depart at 1PM.  Most of the passengers already boarded and we were the last ones to board.  I was looking out the window at the plane.  I hear them start the engines and then a loud "BOOM."  I noticed that flames were coming out of the rear tail pipe and then lots of smoke.   The emergency doors opened up to ventilate the cabin smoke. The passengers deboarded the plane using the gangway.  Fire engines were surrounding the plane.  We were told that they had mechanical problems and the flight would be delayed.  At 3PM they said that it was ready to board but had to tow the plane to out lying gate to "ventilate the cabin." We finally boarded the plane at 8PM without any further announcements from the airline.  As we board, there was a strong odor of burnt plastic and smoke.  Each passenger was given a towel to place over their noses.

The next part was insane.  As they attempted to start the engines, it stalled not once, but 3X.  Each time more and more passengers started yelling in Chinese and freaking out.  They started to get up and moved toward the doors.  They all wanted to get off the plane.  One stewardess started crying.  Again, no announcements or direction were given in Chinese, English or any other language.  All this time, they engines were off and it must have been 90 degrees.  The doors were finally open, however, the gangway was not allowed to engage due to customs/immigration regulations.  More yelling in Chinese ensued and people were edging their way toward the open doors.  The steward had to block the doorway.  Finally, they got clearance from customs and allowed us to deboard.

Now the real chaos started as everyone clamored for alternative flights.  Again China Eastern reps didn't have an organized method to do this.  Passengers, elbowed their way to the front of the service desk.  They were not able to put us on another flight b/c they only had one plane in United States.  The next flight was the next day and that was full.  They were not willing to get us on other airlines other than China Southern or China Air, these were all full.  We eventually had to book a flight with Cathay Air.  It is now, 9:30PM

When we told China Eastern that we needed our luggage, we were told that it would be out of the plane at 11PM.  By 11PM, we were then told that the luggage cannot be offloaded b/c they do not have enough people to remove the luggage.  They promised to deliver the luggage to our destination in Shanghai the next day.

Of course, our luggage did not arrive in Shanghai.  China Eastern reps in the lost luggage dept. said they did not know where the luggage is located.  They were not willing to assist in locating the luggage, I had to threatened them by saying that I will sleep in their office unless the find my luggage.  They finally found the luggage in Xian and they will have it Shanghai, but we had pick it up at the airport the next day.  The airport was 45 mins away.  I demanded to have the luggage delivered to our hotel.  They said that this was not possible b/c they had to "clear it" with the office in Los Angeles.  The problem here is that Los Angeles office is closed.  Again, more yelling on my part and finally they said they will deliver it in the afternoon.

Needless to say, the longest delay and craziest flight experience of my life.  If you want to fly direct to Shanghai, don't mind the yelling, delay, old planes, old movies on dark video screens, fly China Eastern.  After this experience, I think I will only fly Cathay or Singapore Airlines on my next trip and enjoy a layover in Hong Kong
Title: Re: Random Posts For Non-Meshugeners
Post by: EMCC on November 18, 2014, 11:40:43 PM
I was on the same plane as Stephen G.; in short my advise is to never fly with China Eastern if you don't have to...

The long story...

My boyfriend and I were super excited about our trip to Shanghai and arrived early to check in for our 1pm flight. We had no problems checking in, and happily walked ourselves through security after grabbing a bite from Pinks. We grabbed a couple of drinks and waited at the gate for boarding...

We were informed that there was a delay, so we continued to wait...

Then we heard some rumblings from those around us that there seemed to be some electrical malfunction, so we continued to wait...

By 2pm they moved us to another gate and told us that we would board shortly, so we continued to wait...

By 3pm they told us that the shuttles would take us to the plane and that we would be leaving shortly, so we continued to wait...

We got onto the shuttles and were taxied over to the plane where they informed us that there was an electrical fire and that the smell in the cabin would dissipate after the plane took off so we got on the plane... to my dismay the cabin was filled with the stink of an electrical fire mixed with the carcass of a rotting raccoon or something to that affect... we were handed a damp towel and instructed to place it over our face, and informed that the smell was not hazardous to our health...

After sitting on the plane for another 30 minutes and trying not to breathe in the death fumes, they attempted to start the engines, after THREE stalls most of the passengers had, had enough, so we got off of the plane...

That's when the mass pandemonium started...

After receiving no answers regarding the status of the flight, possible alternative flights, and the location of our baggage, many of the passengers began to yell at the airline representatives that were present. The yelling did not result in any additional answers but increased aggravation from the passengers involved.

Given that this was a trip that my boyfriend and I had been planning for months, I was getting seriously agitated considering how difficult it is for us to be able to take time off from work. So after getting the runaround from the airline representatives, I tracked down their manager (who I will kindly refer to as the Weasel). The Weasel is a little boy who while you may be looking him straight in the eye asking him a question, will look right past you and ignore anything you say regardless of how polite you may be. After repeatedly asking what he was going to do with the flight and all of the passengers the Weasel had the audacity to raise his voice at me and tell me that I should just get back on the plane and that he couldn't do anything for me. I told him that there was no way I was going to get back on a plane that his own flight crew was nervous about boarding. That if his own crew did not feel safe, how could he expect an entire plane full of passengers to place their lives in their hands. At that point the Weasel had the nerve to tell me that he was calling the cops if I would not stop questioning him!

The cops showed up with batons and stun-guns, and actually hauled away an older gentleman who was yelling. The Weasel also had the awesome customer service skills that he was yelling at an elderly grandmother who was concerned for her 1 year old grandson and sick husband .

Despite their incessant decrees that the plane was safe to fly, they could not get the baggage off of the plane because of an electrical malfunction. After speaking to a few other representatives it was brought to our attention that LAX has asked China Eastern to stop flying this plane because of the consistent malfunctions!

Now I might not be an engineer... but ELECTRICAL MALFUNCTION DOES NOT GIVE ME PEACE OF MIND BEFORE GETTING ON A PLANE!

Eventually around 10PM!!!! Yes that's right folk around 10 at night, we were informed that the flight has been CANCELLED DUE TO MALFUNCTIONS! YOU IDIOTS NEEDED TO WASTE AN ENTIRE DAY BEFORE YOU WOULD ADMIT TO THE FACT THAT THE PLANE WAS NOT CAPABLE OF FLYING????

We were then instructed that we would need to return to the airport at 7 the next morning, since there were no other China Eastern planes and none of the other airlines had any empty seats.

So they carted us off to some sad forsaken motel which provided us with useless food vouchers since their kitchen wouldn't be open at 7 in the morning. We went back to LAX and were placed back on the same flight and after another delay, were eventually flown to Shanghai.

THANKS A LOT YOU JERKS FOR WASTING AN ENTIRE DAY OF MY LIFE AND NOT EVEN APOLOGIZING FOR YOUR EXTREME INCOMPETENCE, LACK OF CUSTOMER SERVICE, AND THE WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED!

AND AS FOR YOU MISTER WEASEL! YOU ARE THE RUDEST LITTLE RAT MAN I HAVE EVER MET, YOU ARE LUCKY THAT, THAT POOR OLD GRANDMOTHER DIDN'T HAVE A HEART-ATTACK AFTER HOW RUDE YOU WERE TO HER! I HOPE YOU GET FIRED!

I was actually discussing this with my wife on the way to work today, and we agreed that we don't necessarily think so. Sure, we think living in Israel would be nice one day but in terms of what's going on, we feel much more strongly that Moshiach will come because people are good people - wherever they live - and not because Jews move to Israel. Just our opinion, obviously others are entitled to their own.

Same here. I drove my car all the way to empty and the pump stopped at 29.14, so I kept topping it off until 30.01. I was not losing my $5
they say it's not good for your gas gauge to top it off so I would just find a lucky guy to give 86 cents of gas to

BTW in lakewood you can get gas for at least 40 cents less than shell which would come out to about a $5 saving on $30 making this promo useless

First time I topped off in a long time... There was nobody else to give it to.  And the shell was competitively priced

Yes I did

Post by: ChaimMoskowitz on January 21, 2015, 07:18:21 AM
Let's go with this: A riot (/ˈraɪət/) is a form of civil disorder commonly characterized by a group lashing out in a violent public disturbance against authority, property or people. Riots typically involve vandalism and the destruction of property, public or private.

...or for short Fergunson.

Call them, I've cancelled many chase cards up to 6 months after the fee was charged. They changed their policy about AF, you get an automatic credit up to 60 days and a manual one up to 180 days.

I recently sm'ed to close a card and didnt get the AF refunded after a few days so sm'ed back abt it and they said they see that the CL I requested to be moved over was done but for some reason the card wasnt closed so she did it then and then the AF was refunded.

I read the Cuba post, and IF that is takke a drunken post, then we're talking about a pretty serious level of boozer. See, someone who just ties one on occasionally would tend to write sloppy while drunk (lots of spelling mistakes and typos.) Someone who can post drunk and have his writing be free of grammatical, spelling, syntactic errors etc. is a pretty serious level. Like a guy who you can work next to and have whole conversations with and never realize he's drunk ALL the time until someone tells you and then it clicks. Anyway, just my two cents.

So every time I pass the Red card thread I hope and pray it'll still be alive when I get home for bz and do an AOR
Any over/unders on its life span?
Do they plan on widening program to NY (please say no)?
 And finally been trying to figure this out - Who exactly makes $$ here?

I can't imagine them disappearing without even rolling out nationwide. I do think they will be around for a while. If in the same capacity as now I am unsure about

Being that the main perk target advertises with it is the 5% savings and the free shipping I assume they are expecting more people to shop with them. So target is the one making more money with the card (indirectly).


We do.

And that too!

Anyone know of a Youtube video I can use to demonstrate this Mishnah From Maseches Sukah (Perek 4 Mishnah 9):
