It's obtrusive presence infiltrates every post.  I think it deserves it's own thread.

(In truth, I posted before I saw that thread.)

Re: Israel Master Thread: Things To Do, Places To Eat
Anyone know of a guy that fixes ovens (or more accurately, will replace the oven door... glass broke)

Call the company that services your oven and get a quote for a new door.  If you can disassemble a laptop, you can probably replace the door yourself.   ;D

Re: Where can i get it? (israel edition)
1) so they claim, and they sent me a card for my son

2) I did pay for insurance for the last 3 years. I got the paperwork today. Should I bring that in office or mail ? Can I get back for the entire period that I paid ?

3) my son was born in the USA so where can I pick up the form

1)Try and get someone helpful on the phone and fax that card.  Something doesn't add up.

2)I think you can get back 80% of what you paid from the begining of your visa.

3)In that case, I'm not sure you arte eligible for maanak laida.  Maybe you mean kitzvat yiladim?

If Israel is doing this to earn goodwill/approval from the international community, they are in dreamland.
They publicize it because from a PR perspective it can't hurt. They do it to build political /intelligence capital on the other side of the fence.

Re: Laptop Deals Master Thread
IMO you are overdoing it, get an i5 with 8gb ram, ssd, and a graphics card and it will do everything you need it to do. No need for i7, and the extra ram. I assume you are not planning using it to store pictures and videos so no need for the extra TB drive.
You should be able to save a decent amount by doing that

Just to throw out a thank you to all those active in this thread.  I came here with my needs and was given specs (thanks @avromie7) and those specs turned out to be perfect. 

Further guidance from @Yisroel Tech helped me find the right match and I saved about $400 from what I would have paid with out all of your advice.

Have passwords work when the exact opposite case-sensitive letters are entered. No brainer.

I'm on all caps most of the day because of a computer program and it's annoying as hell.

Why should it be different once it is not derech chiba? I personally would recommend to be machmir but we know that the meikilim exist and that a large potion of legitimately frum yidden follow that opinion.

I would say to refuse the first lady's hand shake and risk embarrassing in public a president known to have a fragile ego would make one a chosid shoteh.

Re: Keeping Up With The Kushners
Confirmed. Modern orthodox is conservative.
There are major, substantial differences.  I would love to articulate them, but I keep Shabbos :)

The difference between Orthodox and Conservative is in the ideology of their respective Rabbinic leadership, not in the practices of their adherents.  The majority of Modern Orthodox Rabbis have views on the authority of Rabbinic Law that place them firmly in the Orthodox camp.  Those who don't tend to identify as Open Orthodox.  You can point to the low level of practice of some or many Modern Orthodox Jews as an indication of the non-viability of the Modern part of Modern Orthodoxy, but that in no way makes them Conservative.

Re: Silent Killer
Your statement have proven that you have zero understanding of addiction. You think a silly thing like a stigma can stop someone who has started down the path towards addiction. The only one it helps, maybe, is the person who never starts.

And that person who never starts because of the stigma is not worthy of our consideration?

Likes do. Hit that like button.
In this particular case, there is a significant difference between a +1 and a like.  +1 indicated the poster can confirm they don't fall out, whereas a Like would indicate that the poster likes the fact that they don't fall out.

A clear majority of both lists is just nonsense or only bad if you are a progressive incapable of seeing a point of view other than your own.

Re: Mayim Bialik NY Times Op-Ed Backlash
May all your lectures be so short and to the point :-)

You don't need me to come up with explanations and interpretations, you can just read her piece again. She doesn't blame the victims. She does say that modest dress and behavior can and does prevent many things, but doesn't say it prevents all abuse, assault or harassment.

With today's need to check boxes and put everyone on a specific side of an issue, we spout absolutes ("She victim shamed. Tznius does not prevent sexual assault") and end up losing any and all nuance or place for reasoned discussion.


I'm pretty sure almost everyone here would agree on two points:

1) No matter how a woman dresses or how much she flirts, sexual assault is never excusable.

2) Western culture's objectification of women increases the likelihood of inexcusable sexual assaults by men.

Re: Trump-Republican tax plan bad for large families
How would this tax plan look different if people were able to vote on it instead of elected officials? Would that be a better structure?

I'm asking this only partly hypothetically- we almost have the technology today to get rid of elected officials entirely and replace them by giving voters the ability to weigh in on every issue directly.

The Founders chose a Representative Democracy over a Direct Democracy quite deliberately.

I agree, in general, it's a bad idea to post a picture that shows the cuts.  That wasn't necessary to determine the type of key.

We'll have to see how it plays out but I did just look up some diaper rash cream (not for me) and it was more online than in the store and I don't think it showed a p/u discount.

I use diaper rash cream for many off label purposes.  Nothing to be embarrased about ;D

Re: Prison

I read this a while ago. Found it to be a fascinating read into the mindset of how quickly people can mentally human life as automatically worth respecting. I think it as worthwhile to read as The Wave.

Quite a read.  Just finished it.  I don't know how a moral society can allow this.  Far more important than tax reform, ACA repeal, or anything else for that matter is prison reform.

Binary options issued by FINRA licensed firms may are pure gambling. All others are outright scams. I havent been in the stock market for 7 years so I dont know if there are legitimate binary options platforms. All those I've seen advertised on the frum websites are outright scams to steal your money.

You were trading binary options?

sexism - prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.

Judaism doesn't discriminate against women, it discriminates between men and women.  Not being able to discriminate between things that are different is usually considered a problem.
