Re: Need someone to spend big, please advise
Thanks for everyone's responses.  It'll be my business if I find someone who can spend, and if I consider them reliable.  Maybe I would find a small business owner, whose identity I can confirm.  Did it hurt to post the question?  It's not like I posted pictures of the card and my billing address.  Slow down.

I also asked for tips, not just someone who can spend.

The total profit if I can avoid the costs of spending for the entire bonus (200,000 points) would be around $3k.  It's worth it for me.  It's even worth it for me to just paypal it and pay 3%, but why not try this first.

So I guess I'll ask again, do any of you have any POSITIVE and HELPFUL information to share, or do you just want to try (unsuccessfully) to make me feel like an idiot for my post?
The number 1 sign of a business is having trouble is when they need your credit card to swipe, rather than using their own and generate points themselves.
There's always a reason why they can't get credit or why they've been banned from credit lenders.

Re: Go-carts
12 year old kid wants a go-cart for afikoman present.  The ones you drive around in family fun centers etc...

anybody ever purchase one or anybody with experience?  where should I purchase, gas or electric, where do we store it ?
I wish you can adopt me as your kid too.. I'm already asking an helicopter for next year's afikomen, the ones you see on the FDR doing rides for tourists.

Re: Lose Your Hechsher In Lakewood If You Fly An Israeli Flag?
The Lakewood oilam would stop trusting their hechsher because of the Israeli flag ? Not the oilam I’ve known for decades.
Is this rabbi Weisner a satmarer ?
Lakewood is moving towards the right, following the Oirbach's in Israel. Being more "Kenuisdig" has become now the new trend, for many reasons.

Re: The Holocaust
What about the swiss and polish who generations later (and probably still today) are hiding and not returning all what was taken during the war.
I always wondered if there is any data on how much revenue the most famous tourist attraction in Poland, known as "Auschwitz-Birkenau" generates into the Polish economy.

The fact that such a slaughter factory was placed precisely on that place, among those inhabitants, is a significant sign on the nature of that culture, I even doubt if they would be able to establish that close to a civilized Berlin or Frankfurt. Yet in the same time the Polish are literally allergic to any sort of associating that with Poland and even criminalized it.

Which brings me back to my above question, how much revenue does the 1.5 million visitors to Auschwitz a year generate into their economy? Do they have any measures taken to invest ALL those earnings, not just the actual admission fees into the camps, but all lodging, eatery, and transportation industries yieldings into Holocaust memorial or such? If that's not the case, then we are witnessing today in 2019 the worst interpretation of "הרצחת וגם ירשת", not just inheriting the victims fortunes but monetizing their shed blood.

Hyper Tough - Walmart's ultra affordable tools & accessory brand So I came across this brand while looking around for a good tool kit for my summer home here in Monticello's Walmart. I was simply astonished by the low cost of these tools, I mean a 20 Volt lithium cordless drill for $22.95??

And look at these All-in-1 tool kits. 

 And yet still I didn't buy anything, because.. because it was too cheap.. Perhaps they are all just a piece of junk?? I know Home depot's own brand, Ryobi, makes very good tools, although not in that low price range at all,  But I wonder how is it with Walmart's own brand, and they have a lot of items under this name. Does anyone have experience with this brand? Of course just for the summer anything quite decent is good enough, but I would still want to hear more on this brand, I can make good use of this wide range of low cost tools.

Re: Interesting Articles...
Heard a good one in regarding this line in the above article,
“It is considered wrong to touch bodies . . . how can they procreate?” he said. “There is a sheet, or fabric, with a strategically placed opening for — you all know what that is for.”

A man walks by a clan of dogs, listening to their conversation he overhears one dog telling to the other "You see these humans,  all their wastes stays in their bodies, they never release them!!" while another dog answers "Sure they don't, did you ever see'm urinate at the tree as we do?" The man smiles and turns to the dogs "Listen up dogs, let me teach you two important things:
1- Unlike dogs, humans do private things behind closed doors.
2-Dogs are dogs, and should not become experts on humans!..

Re: All Halocha Shailos and teiffa Questions So the thing with the knife originates to the Rebbe of Lublin, aka the חוזה מלובלין זי׳׳ע, to buy a new knife every Rush Hashuna AND to use it, as a segula for a good new year so Hashem should "cut" a good year for us, based on החותך חיים לכל חי, and particularly for parnasah. It must NOT be a Challah knife, just buy any knife needed for your kitchen at the time, dairy, parve or meat. The minhag is to use it the first night of RH to cut the apple you dip in honey, as well as for the other simanim we eat for a sweet year.

Re: Random questions.
It's been a long time since I went to Simchas Bais Hashoeva in CH, and thinking that I'd like to take my kids this year, and I have a couple of questions:

- Where can I find a schedule? List of performers?
- Any tips for parking?
- Will Kingston Ave restaurants be open late enough for a little melave malka? Even on Motzei Shabbos chol hamoed? (I also assume that they have sukkahs, or that there is access to a sukkah).

TIA for help and suggestons.

Re: PC friday question of the day. Thanks God I'm not really into looking for parenting advise, my kids are well behaved. I just found @ExGingi point to be very accurate.

Re: PC friday question of the day.
Slap on the wrist or soap in my mouth we're nothing.

A belt? Slap to your face ?

Listen, I was raised well, I knew my parents loved me, but there wasn't a feeling of unconditional love

In the non religious world, not getting kicked out for not following the rules is easy.

Oh lets wake him up at 8:34am to say shema.

What you trimmed your beard?!?

What is that garbage you're reading.

And yes, my father losing his marbles over gebrochts at the Seder table, I don't go to my parents, not Shabbat, not chagim

It makes my keh 94 year old grandmother sad and it makes my mother sad but eh?!? I'm not interested in having chumros and hiddurim shoved down my throat, pass.

But the getting hit with a belt caused me to detest most things that caused this, usually yeshiva, shull, Shabbat table.
One with a tough upbringing shouldn't speak in general.
I'm not familiar with any decent person using a belt, nor am I familiar with anyone violating century old Chumras at his father's Seder table. I'm confused so I won't say anything, but again, my feeling is that you can't speak for the general public.

Re: PC friday question of the day.
Why are these mutually exclusive? Modeling appropriate behavior may lessen the need to 'keep your kids in line' (whatever form that may take for you), but if you've been modeling appropriate behavior and the child is behaving inappropriately right now, do you not do something to address that in the moment?
Right point. Additionally, modeling appropriate behavior doesn't apply to certain misbehavior at certain ages, i.e. how do you model appropriate behavior to your child running into the street? Which brings us back to the point that for proper parenting you need a large tool box, be wise and cool, be yourself a role model, and above all a lot of Tfilah to Hashem.

Ya and what would have happened if the guy had a gun? how many people would have been killed?
What would have happened in the church in texas if there hadn't been a good guy with a gun?
Maybe look at it this way.

A bad guy in Taxes storms a Church with a gun, a good man with a gun stops him. 2 people are killed.
A bad guy in NY storms a shul with a knife, a good man with a table in the hand stops him. No one is killed B"h.

Now maybe you have your answer.

Re: Its Open Season on Jews
Let's take a step back and examine what Golus is, so maybe it will become obvious to you (and others).

Golus is a status of concealment. Yidden are called בני בכורי ישראל and were given many special gifts by Hashem. In a proper setting, Hashem's chosen people, firstborn nation, should be free of all problems, burdens and hindrances and occupied solely with learning Torah and keeping mitzvos. However, since we are in Golus, that is not the case (at least not in a revealed manner). Self-defense measures are appropriate, but putting too much emphasis on it is only burying ourselves deeper in a golus mindset, rather than focusing on a Geulah mindset of emphasizing good, and focusing on our true mission in this world. Putting trust into self-defense and weapons seems to be distancing us even more from where our trust should be.
Couldn't be said any better!

@ExGingi, You're a beacon of light here on DDF!

Re: Its Open Season on Jews
In North Miami Beach they come and pay ny prices . Then they rent out villas etc.   It's frustrating TBH.

Also, they use our shulls and don't contribute the part.

Would be nice though if visitors and Vila owners contributed to shulls
Sorry, but you are being overly bitter here, beside for it being a very false accusation.

I was in NMB a few weeks ago, Davened in Kahal Chassidim which attracts most of the villa renters/owners. On a very pushita shabbos they sold the Aliyos for at least $125 each, Shishi was sold for $800, in addition to the at least $18 for every Mi Shebeirach. The Gabei called out the guest before, saying "M'bet the guest zullen zich varem unreefen"

I don't know where you Daven, but I've clearly seen how they managed to make the guest contribute a fortune.

As a side note, I didn't know you live in NMB, but I socialized with many very geshmakeh people over there, including from Chabad (which has a beautifull shul and a large growing community) I hope you were one of them :)

Mr. Fishy, I really don't know which one of the great talents of yours exceed one another, photography or writing, but one sure complements the other, both together is the perfect set, coupled with your great intelligence and perfect attention to geography. And the outcome? an awesome TR worth million$$!! You should really be writing a book of your trips and sell it for top dollar!

You literally take along the reader on your entire journey. Feeling the exhilaration and joy at every step as well as the letdown when something goes not as planned, but with your vibrant positivity you overcome every obstacle, dragging the reader along back on track.. 

The one place I became dizzy is when you took me along on a 6 mile hike on lava stones and pebbles (sorry for saying it so simplistic ;)) I'm getting exhausted just from reading it, even without offering a helping hand to carry some of the camera gear bags... but I guess muscle size grows with the shoe size ;D.

These trips are what my dreams are made of. Not having the ability to do such myself, I really fulfilled it halfway by reading your fabulous TR!!

1. Hot water is pareve
2. Kavush only applies to leaving things for a while
3. People wash pareve dishes all the time. If it's cold milk, any taam that comes off a sponge is pogem (soap imbedded there).

So quickly we forget that they didn't have 3 sets of dishes in Europe.
1. Hot water is pareve- until you measure dairy cream and use afterwards for hot water without washing out.
2. Kavush only applies to leaving things for a while- remains can stay for a while when placed in the sink or dishwasher.

So quickly we forget that they didn't have 3 sets of dishes in Europe- but 2 sets for sure, same dishes were never used for milchig and fleishig.
