Re: Hamburger Master Thread I cut down on red meat but, I used to cook 1 onion together with shiitake mushrooms in a frying pan till caramelized.

Nowdays I cook burgers in my cast iron skillet, i dont form a patty, rather I grab the meat in a chunk, salt it and form the patty by pressing it to the skillet for contact heat, once it sears I flip.. my burgers come out medium done, mostly because I was raised on raw meat and bacteria paranoia and though my steaks are bloody rare eh i dunno..occasionally i do medium rare.

see http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/03/the-food-lab-maximize-flavor-by-ultra-smashin.html

I trust a restaurant in that the meat was freshly ground that day and less bacteria exposure

Re: NY Post Article On Satmar Couple's Open Marriage (Interesting Articles Split) My dream would be to teach jewish history in relation to rituals.

In absence of the Bait Hamikdash, kjudaism became a religion of rituals. The excitement of daily practice is long gone, holidays are no longer as exciting, go to the kotel on tisha b'av and how many jews are really crying ?

Rav JB soloveitchik writes a lot about this, I love his passion expression tempered by intellect, his brisker lineage, influence of a chabad melamed and reconciling his secular encounters and huge intellect.

Chabad didnt do it for me because without the Rebbe, its hard to stay connected.. just as above with bait hamikdash. Also chabad philosophy didnt cater to my intellect.

Being non religious can be any thing really but yes its mostly the appeal of pleasure without guilt, as Eliyahu said "how long will you serve both baal and God ?"

Pleasures can be anything from trayf, to wanting to party on shabbat, sure a lot is sexual, but its mostly a lack of connection and caring, a bit like how marriages break down, at some point people just dont care any more so they leave.

For me, studying the Mesorah and the intellectual supremacy of the Rav, the Halachik mind, the Halachik man, the lonely man of faith etc coupled with my knowledge of Chasidus is really what keeps me grounded.

Also, the frum worlds really needs to step back and re-evaluate itself, never was being religious so heavy in rules and rituals, its like a guy that buys his wife fancy gifts but cant be bothered to listen her speak and sincerely be there for her.

Re: Hurricane Irma
but what if I tell you that rosh hashana is the next yom tov that's coming up?!
And happens to be we blow the shofer then, aside for the 30 days before R"H which we blow after shacris.
 What a coincidence I must say!?

A guy sees his new neighbor out in his backyard, so he decides to get acquainted. After introductions, he asks the new neighbor what he does for a living.

The new neighbor says, "I'm a professor." The first neigbhbor then asks, "Oh yeah, what do you teach?"

"Logic," the professor reponds.

"What is that?" the neighbor inquires.

"Well, let me see if I can give you an example...you have a dog, right?"

"Yeah, that's right," neighbor #1 responds.

"And you have children too, right?" says the professor.

"Wow, right again!" exclaims the neighbor.

"So, then you must be married and that would make you a heterosexual, right?'' proclaims the professor.

"Unbelievable, you're absolutely correct. How do you know all this about me?"

"Well," the professor says, "I observed there was a dog house in your backyard, so you must have a dog. I also saw bicycles next to your garage, so you must have children. And if you have children, you are probably married and if your married, you are most likely heterosexual... it was all logical!"

The next afternoon, the neighbor runs into his old friend. His friend asks if he has met the new neighbor. The man says that he met him yesterday.

"What's he like?"

"Well," the man says, "he's nice and he is a professor of logic."

"Oh," says the friend, "what's logic?"

"Maybe I can give you an example. Do you have a dog house?"

"Why, no, I do not," responds the friend.

"Well, then," proclaims the man, "you must be gay!"

Re: Chicago Master Thread
Sorry, but nobody told you to go to Shallot's and order a burger. I can also assume that Shemtov's makes good pizza or that Fuego makes good steaks, but those would be wrong and I should've done the research into what's actually good there beforehand.

If you wanted recommendations, you should have read this:
http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=83267.0


nope, thats BS and one of the most moronic stances and exactly WHY the kosher restaurant scene sucks.

Flam makes great wine, their noble is amazin but very expensive, their classico is good and cheap.

I ddidnt go to Shallot's, order the kids shnitzel and fries and then cry.

I ordered sushi which was excellent but roughly the size of  a half normal roll.

A friend ordered a burger at izzy's bbq and said it sucked, I said but they make amazing brisket, he didnt budge, no restaurant has any justification in selling a sub-par product, certainly not an expensive restaurant.

Your logic "who goes to shallots and gets a burger" my logic "what kind of highly rated restaurant serves medicore items on their menu"

As for your food recommendations, I think people are morons for buying crappy wine and I just as much fault restaurants for selling it, we brought a bottle of Herzog Chalk Hill 2008

Re: South Florida Master Thread
The answer to that is very simple. They want to stay in business and make a profit, and this has nothing to do with kosher or not. If you don't understand that you are lying to yourself for an ideal you have set forth for all restaurants that is simply ridiculous as everyone else in this thread has said. No one said these are michelin star restaurants. And if you don't try what a place is known for and say it's a terrible restaurant is silly based on the reality of what we live with.

That said, had the burger at Dixie BBQ and I do understand your frustration. It was one of the blandest burgers I ever had. But that doesn't mean to me that the place is terrible it means their burgers stink what else can I try, and I thought the fried chicken sandwich with custom toppings was great. (Also this is a soft opening for them and they are still customizing their menu and flavors.) TR to come.

WOW... i'll meet you in the middle!

Fries are a high dollar profit, they are like lettuce as well, a cheap plate filler. A restaurant can have crappy fries but i'd be annoyed if I got a burger and the fries suck, i'd be pissed off if I got a 75$ steak and the fries suck.

I have no doubt that dixie and other restaurants excel at what they set out to be, in Dixie case specifically burgers are one 6th of the Menu.. you expect that they would deliver.

I am not affiliated with Harbor Bistro and I famously took the grill to task on DDFB. I just feel like the Bistro model is where they serve only stuff they excel at. The results are astounding.

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
Can you share?

I realised that for some, it is a source of much needed secondary income. Rather than a game or such.

I do realize that, done right it represents a few hundred extra dollars a week, which can be crucial or at least helpful.

Sometimes I parlay my personal experience with things into the big picture, not because I think the world evolves around me, I just forget that each person is different.

For me, churning is often a distraction from my day job and inherently a waste of time.

Air Europa I am so effing pissed. Flying May 27 MIA - BCN, BCN - TLV later that week. Was planning to return TLV - MIA june 6. Air europa had a great flight with stopover in MAD at $400. I realized I had a 75 euro voucher, I tried for like 2 weeks to reach someone and they say oh voucher expired WTF the email they sent with voucher has no wording that iot must be used by a certain date.

They said email us at ... I did, no reply. So I figured what the heck I better just book right ? flights are all 1k+ from them, next best option is Tap at 600 and 13h stopover vs 19h on air europa (was going to use a few hours to explore madrid and stay in hotel.

Any ways, i'm screwed right ? The airline will no honor the older price even though they BS'ed me ?

Re: Family races to help 2 sons who could die of rare disease by age 10 They are close to 1.2m but need 1.5m. They also are finally able to release details:

Quote
The cost? A whopping minimum $1.2 million to allow renowned neuroscientist Dr. Paola Leone, director of the Cell and Gene Therapy Center at Rowan University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in New Jersey and her team to finish developing the cutting-edge therapy. “The hope is that they will lead full, functional lives,” says Leone, whose gene therapy has already proven successful in mice.

In the potentially life-saving clinical trial, Benny, Josh and other children will undergo a surgical procedure to have a genetically-engineered virus injected into their brains to help them produce normal white matter which they need to regain motor function.

“We have an expectation that the therapy will make a real difference in the lives of these kids,” says renowned neurologist Dr. Christopher Janson of the University of Illinois at Chicago who will direct the team performing the surgeries.

Their state-of-the-art research can also help find a cure for other diseases including ALS, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

HELP!! MICE!! Arab rockets in gush katif ? meh... arab terrorists in chevron? blah... mice in miami?! HELP!!

How this happened im not sure, one theory is that when my building was repairing the ceiling, they left it open and mice came in.. either way, starting saturday night, I saw a mouse in the kitchen and the bedroom. First I borrowed glue traps from neighbor ad put all over.. in middle of the night (I slept on couch.. i'm  a wuss) I checked my room amd rawr i saw a mouse run, in morning I saw the glue trap moved....

Sunday, one mouse got caught in the kitchen in the glue.. kabam! GONE

We searched my bedroom, no mice.. Then later in the kitchen I saw a big a$$ mouse.

Ok, got 2 good 'ol mouse traps loaded with peanut butter, got other traps, left the glue and got out.. got steel wool and plugged holes.

Checked my room tonight and saw a sucker run.. found him hidding in night stand.. missed that spot the first time.. I froze, he ran!! he won for now

ok i'm scared!!  im burning some points and hitting up hotel yalla.. my exterminator cant come till tuesday. Any ideas or just stay away till then??

Re: Yom Kippur Davening I hate fasting.. even something minor like tzom gedalia. but I confess that Yom Kippur is my favorite holiday. I love the swell of emotion, uplifting prayers, supplications and beseeching. No concert number can begin to pale in comparison to the prayers and activities of Yom Kippur.

Where do I start ? For one, the machzor packs in so much you barely have a minute to absorb anything. It's all raw emotion.

Some of the prayers are the most passionate pleading of any written work of history.  One example if the chazan's shacharit repetition.

This day it is written    הַיּוֹם יִכָּתֵב

בְּסֵֽפֶר הַזִּכְרוֹנוֹת.

in the Book of Remembrance,

הַחַיִּים וְהַמָּֽוֶת.

[who is for] life and [who for] death.

אָֽנָא כַּנָּה. עֽוּרִי נָא.

Please, [Yisrael, who is God's] vineyard, awake!

הִתְעוֹרְרִי נָא. עִמְדִי נָא.

Rouse yourselves and stand [in prayer]

הִתְיַצְּבִי נָא. קֽוּמִי נָא. חַלִּי נָא.

strengthen yourselves, rise up, plead,

בְּעַד הַנֶּֽפֶשׁ חֲנִי נָא.

for the sake of [your] soul, plead,

פְּנֵי דַר עֶלְיוֹן:

plead to Him Who dwells on high.

We humans are fickle. We fear silly things and shrug off real danger's. Sometimes we may have to remind ourselves to pay a bill or we will be evicted, or really do not do that to your boss or you will be fired and yes 9000 feet elevation is scary so please be careful!

And behold it's the 10th day of tishrey. We know this because the calendar says so, because everyone is in the synagogue..

This is the day!! Wake me up God!! Wake yourself up!

Make no mistake, the prayers are well orchestrated! They built up to the greatest climax never matched in any cinema setting.

The Torah reading describes Yom Kippur. Then comes the avoda. The avoda was intended to place us in the beit hamikdash. To connect us to the services.  Lifney hashem titaharu! In potraits of incredible heights we are given a front seat view to the kohen gadol and the nation.

How can one not be overwhelmed and swept up by this ?!? How can one not feel themselves in the mikdash as the high priest proclaimed the mighty and beloved name of the holy one blessed be he.. and the whole nation including you kneels and bows !!

For me, the prayer of the high priest is most prounonced.. financial indepence, no miscarriage, the house of David should not pass.

And so I pray . Shnas Ora, shnas bracha etc..

But what if every day was yom Kippur.. what if every day I could muster such incredible emotions, such highs! Such fear and joy.. such belief and sober reality that today matters!! That today would affect my destiny and that of the nation of Israel

If only I would awake each day with awe and Joy. Ready to wage battle, to change, to improve, to be better..

But I don't, I wake each morning to the drone of life.. knowing that today is a stepping stone to tomorrow.. and today will fade like yesterday.. as life fades away.

I try to pray with emotion but it escapes me.. there's no "Ana slach na, mechol na, kaper na.. "

But maybe that's what life is about.. fireworks last a few minutes or hours and life resumes.

At the end of neilah we say shema yisrael. One is supposed to say it as if he's ready right now to give his life Al kiddush hashem. So over the years I thought in the sense that if someone is going to kill me right now ,I'm ready to die al Kiddush hashem.  It doesn't really work because bh we have great security in the shull.. who is going to kill me ?!? Besides I lived in gush katif, Chevron and Jerusalem, I'm not scared to die al Kiddush hashem. I thought of what Rabbi soloveitchik said regarding the akeida, God doesn't want human sacrifices - he wants humans to sacrifice themselves. So, if the holy one blessed be he came to me during neilah and said "sacrifice your life Al kiddush hashem! Dedicate the rest of your life to doing my work!" Will I say yes! Or will I ask God how much it pays?!?

Well, that's a lot to think about!

I didn't keep track of times, but it was a good yk!

Re: Parkland, FL 2/14/18 School Shooting, 17 Killed (Another mass shooting!)
...and how many lost their lives or that doesn't matter?
So you believe if guns were banned we would have more murders?

Your moral compass is so screwed you have me worried if you have any human feelings.

Your logic dictates in banning guns would prevent killings or at least lessen them.

On a realistic real life fact, that isn't true. The murders in Chicago while even if banning guns might have made those guns harder to aquire, would in no way stop gun aquisituon and murder. Home made guns and smuggled guns would take over.

Increases in stabbing, car ramming etc would also make up.

Now, what you instead do, is deprive law abiding citizens their God given and constitutional affirmed rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Why ? Because you moral compass dictates so! So because some criminal's used guns, there for disarm the law abiding masses and throw them prey to the animals.

But an analysis of five years' worth of stats collected by the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics' National Crime Victimization Survey puts the number much, much lower — about 67,740 times a year. Guns used in self defense

Versus 8342 criminal homicides.

How many lives we're saved ? Dunno, maybe 5000 maybe 250,000?
How many of those 8342 would have been killed with an alternative weapon if no guns ? Dunno

I'm going with the 67,000 numbers because it's my God given right and duty to defend myself, my heart mourns for senseless murders, it's time we bring God, morality, the seven noahide laws and the value of human life back into the national debate.

Re: Parkland, FL 2/14/18 School Shooting, 17 Killed (Another mass shooting!)
I never said such things. If guns cause more deaths then they save you to need rethink things.

You might feel secure with owning a gun but it is a false sense of security. We have examples of that every day in Chicago. No matter how many guns you or I own we will never be safe because of them.

So then tackle inner-city education.. why should guns be banned in Florida because you have violence in Chicago?

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread
That is your answer for everything. They all do this or they all do that.
One party is increasingly becoming the party of old white men. I wonder why that plays so well on this forum, not!!!  :)

I'm 33, younger I voted R because of Israel. But stuff like school vouchers were huge to me this election (I have no kids)

The unfairness that the frum community has to shoulder this burden, the constant whining by the public school system that they don't have enough money yet they fail to educate kids properly.

My sister voted Gillium because she wants Medicaid, she's 21 with nothing but a basic HS degree and works as.. a teacher in Jewish private schools and she's a moron and I told her so.

So young people often are idiots, the same people that racked up 100k in school loans vote for the party that calls to wipe it out.

No body racks up high student debt going to state / county college.

So you lived the good life for 7 years and didn't work.. we should pay the bills?!?
