Re: Largest Dispute & Fraudulent Activity on your card
Update. I was asked by Discover to file a police report. Got a phone call from the detective today saying that there's video footage of the thief using the card at Macy's (needed additional info from me in order to get a subpoena). Amazingly, the perp that had the card and charged so much on it was actually arrested that Shabbos for shoplifting.
Good candidate for a dumb criminal list ::)

Re: Dimeththyltryptamine (DMT) & Halacha Should I Take LSD to Attain Spiritual Heights?
By the Grace of G‑d,
20th of Marcheshvan, 5725
[Oct. 26, 1964]
Brooklyn, N.Y.

Greeting and Blessings:

I am in receipt of your letter of October 18th, which you write in the name of your friends and in your own behalf, and ask my opinion regarding the new drug called L.S.D., which is said to have the property of mental stimulation, etc.

Biochemistry is not my field, and I cannot express an opinion on the drug you mention, especially as it is still new. However what I can say is that the claim that the said drug can stimulate mystical insight, etc., is not the proper way to attain mystical inspiration, even if it had such a property. The Jewish way is to go from strength to strength, not by means of drugs and other artificial stimulants, which have a place only if they are necessary for the physical health, in accordance with the Mitzva to take care of one’s health. I hope that everyone will agree that before any drugs are taken one should first utilize all one’s natural capacities, and when this is done truly and fully, I do not think there will be a need to look for artificial stimulants.

I trust that you and your group, in view of your Yeshiva background, have regular appointed times for the study of Torah, and the inner aspects of the Torah, namely the teachings of Chassidus, and that such study is in accordance with the principle of our Sages, namely “The essential thing is the deed,” i.e., the actual conduct of the daily life in accordance with the Torah and Mitzvoth, prayer, Teflllin, Kashruth, etc., etc. This is only a matter of will and determination, for nothing stands in the way of the will. I trust that you are also using your good influence throughout your environment.

With blessing,

Re: Dimeththyltryptamine (DMT) & Halacha The Problem With Drugs
By Adin Even-Israel (Steinsaltz)July 4, 2010 6:56 PM
I once heard from the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in a private audience, an observation about drugs.

He was speaking about the effect on a person taking drugs. He was, incidentally, very careful about not saying anything negative about anybody. He said that the opinion of the Torah in general is that the person should be the master over his or her self, and enslavement of any sort is wrong.

Can a person still be the master over himself when involved with drugs and other addictive substances?

The problem with using any kinds of drugs or almost anything that has a little bit of psychoactive material is the same. Indeed, almost everything is psychoactive, including bread. If one fasts and then takes a piece of bread, it is possible to see how many changes are made in one's psyche.

The specific problem, however, with drugs is that people come relatively fast to a point of no return. In truth there is never a point of no return; but one quickly reaches a point from where it is very hard, almost impossible, to return...

Re: Thrown out of Yeshiva for?
He's just stating the obvious in a very calm and measured way. I kept my mouth shut, because I wouldn't be able to control myself. ;)
And he has a bit more clout

Re: Lakewood Forest Fire
Again, I think one of the greatest issues not discussed is why don't the parents have control over these kids? Or do they condone it?
It could be the parents are also exasperated by the kanoim. So they will turn a blind eye.

He appears to be well educated, articulate and smart.
This is the scariest part imo.

Re: Amex Closed Accounts
Isn’t that a red flag ?
It’s basically telling the bank/CC, I am lending this guy your money that you wouldn’t lend to this guy.
