Re: Dan's Tesla Thread
Thanks! Ya, I was under the impression if one did a test drive they were not eligible, looking around online seems like they changed that a few months ago.

So now he's definitely ordering the model 3 - the big question remains if he should upto the performance or not. @Dan you said you felt that it was not worth 10k, for him though he definitely likes the look of the 20 inch wheels better (though obviously if one is price conscious it will cost more over time). Also those red breaks look real hot:)

One big thing I'm thinking is that I wonder (gonna research this now) if the Non performance long range has more range, I see that they all say 310 miles, but I know that they played with the #s a bit so people wouldn't just not go with the performance.
@Dan used your link:) Ordered the performance lol.

Re: Amex F/R Master Thread
I have a F/R on mine and on my DW account, We filed a joint return, is there any DP if the 4506t could clash? (i.e. the IRS will not release the return twice in the same time period)
I've never seen any DP to indicate that it would be an issue. However to play it safe maybe leave a week in between (within the time limits that amex allows of course)

Re: Law School I've been reading a lot on the topic, and have read through most of this thread (quite a lot of info in here).

Basically I never saw myself going back to school, however i'm currently doing IT and don't necessarily love it. Also, as time goes on the bills increase..

With that said I"ve always had the idea in the back of my head about going to law school. Law does interest me (in my spare time I"ll read through random cases, i love looking up cases etc) though I assume most of law is more boring writing:)

I was considering perhaps working for a few months hard & taking Fisch's course, and hopefully getting a good enough LSAT score to get a free ride into a lower tier college. I can't anyhow see myself putting in the hours that I know friends are putting in 80~ a week for big law (aside from the crazy competition to even get in)

However some are telling me that with such low job aspirations I should just skip law altogether.. as if not in big law then there isn't much money anyhow.

If anyone could provide some insight that would be much appreciated.

1. You are only about the 101st person to tell me that. Easier said than done!!!
2. Not according to comments above thread

I know where you are coming from (a good place i'm sure) and I know what you are thinking and where you want to go. I'd rather not air out that much dirty laundry on here, so we can take it to Pm and you can call me if you have any further questions. However I''ll lay out some info here for everyone. I''ll try to keep it pareve, because i'd rather not bash them in public.

Hatzolah in many neighborhoods has become and exclusive club, you can't get in unless you are very connected to someone, or come with a lot of money, or if you are in an area that they are really really struggling.

Also they are mostly run like personal fiefdoms therefore what may seem logical and simple just doesn't happen. For example, I know many medics that are/were current members of various hatzolahs that they refused to let them ride as medics (they had to ride as emt's) simply because that's what the person in charge wanted. Only after much fighting, rabbonim etc did they get bumped up.

With that said - I would not change your life radically (e.g. move neighborhoods/take a paramedic course instead of yeshiva/etc) IN THE HOPES that you one day may be able to join hatzolah, many have gotten burned, and as overall their stance is they simply don't need you etc you most likely will be burned out and frustrated.

Chesed can be done in many other organizations that desperately need your help. I know (been an EMT for a few years now) that rolling to jobs and doing chesed at the same time is super awesome, but don't base your life around an organization that's stance is that they don't need you, and you"ll spend years trying to prove otherwise.

Well said I must say, but what I don't get, why wouldn't Hatzalah have as many members or at least a bit more than 250 throughout Flatbush for example?
  Take Israel for example they have over 6k members on ichud Hatzalah.

    What's the problem with having an overflow of members and put less stress on other members by them knowing there's only 3 members in this neighborhood, now they can have 6 or whatever?

 As well, I thought they started to charge insurance for calls ? Or was that only if you had insurance?
Members (as in the total amount of them) doesn't mean much, it's active members that count (flatbush especially)

Too many members -  I'm with you. Though of course that doesn't literally mean that everyone single EMT should have a radio, it definitely IMO should be tilted that way more than the current exclusivity. Would also help shoulder the burden off the very active members & nights and shabbos.

Insurance - Most neighborhoods softbill now I belive, as they should. No use in throwing away free money. I laughed when one coordinator went to the news and publicly resigned because he said if they start billing then it"ll corrupt hatzolah. As if lol.

Re: POLL: Wedding expenses in the frum Community - BH for simchos? or out of hand? Call me naive, really seems to be too many people trying to live upto the joneses. Can make a beatiful takanah wedding in lakewood for very cheap, no reason everyone feels the pressure to make a huge ateres avrohom type of event.

Re: New Chassidish Community Being Planned in Tampa
All of these are growing, might be a longer process, but look at KJ, is that called success?

Not sure where you inferred that I was referring to 2 friends, it's one and he's an EMT.
Oh gosh, you meant him and his partner? NO LOL, both BLS.

Re: New Chassidish Community Being Planned in Tampa
what's the hourly wage?
idk exactly, but the biggest thing is no education needed. Regardless the OPs point is spot on, many of us complain about being in a blue state, and it's true there are definitely downsides to it however there are many people in our community that rely heavily on either programs that are unique (read very profitable etc) to the liberal states, or their business do (social services programs, nursing homes threapy etc).
