Re: Iceland Master Thread
I just sent this email to Iceland air, let's see what their response will be.

To whom it may concern,

My name is xxxx xxxxx. My wife and I have booked a flight to Iceland departing Jan 9 2018 (xxxxxx) with your airline.

My wife and I are Orthodox Jews. As part of our travel itinerary, we always pre-order a Kosher meal.

Unfortunately, when we attempted to order a KSML (Kosher meal), we were told that Iceland Air does not offer this meal option. While it wouldn’t be a big deal on a short flight, traveling 5.5 hours is a different story.

I was surprised because this has never happened before

In fact, what makes this more surprising is the fact that other airlines that do fly to Iceland offer Kosher meals. Examples of those airlines include United Airlines, Lufthansa, Britishairways, and Delta.

If I had known that you don’t offer KSML, I surely would’ve booked my flight with one of the airlines that do.

While it is too late for me to cancel my reservation, it is not too late for others.

The Rabbi in Iceland who I contacted was equally surprised since many people who eat kosher travel to Iceland. As a result, he told me that when asked, he will tell people who contact him to book their flight with a different airline.

Therefore I strongly recommend that you begin to offer KSML as a meal option for all your customers.

Thank you,

Way to continue the stereotype of entitled Jews. The tone of that letter is nasty and condescending. That was the wrong way to go about it.

Re: Do we really need the US to recognize Jerusalem as the capital?
I'm not arguing that it wasn't part of Jerusalem, I'm just saying that 'Jerusalem" was always the derailing of the process. Because of the high political stakes of giving up Jerusalem it could never be done.

It could change now that it can be blamed on Trump
Are you kidding? Barak and Olmert both offered East jerusalem to the PA. Arafat and then Abas walked away from the table.
Pre 1967 Arabs controlled the ENTIRETY of jerusalem. I don't recall there not being any terrorism.
Blaming it on jerusalem is ridiculous. It's merely an excuse for arabs to kill more jews. THey won't be happy until Jews are completely out of israel, and anyone who insists they want peace is either indenial, living in a dream world or mentally retarded.
Just look at the 3 speechs today. Trump talked about how jerusalem is holy to jews, muslims and christians. BB did the same. Abas did not mention the jews at all.

Chinese on Christmas eve or day This probably belongs in the halacha thread, but I'm sure some people would get offended.
I'm seeing many people posting today on Facebook pictures of their Chinese food and commenting that they are yotzeh the din of nittul nacht. I was under the impression the mitzvah is on the 25th בדוקה, because that's the day when all the other restaurants are closed. On Christmas eve, most are still open till at least late afternoon,so there's a legitimate אפשרות that you can get food other than Chinese, so בסתמה, there's no specific mitzvah of Chinese on the 24th.
Can we get a clear cut psak?
My LOR is for sure not learning tonight, so I can't ask him such a טיפ question right now, so I have no choice but to turn to the למדנים ולייצנים on ddf.

Re: Will pay someone to write 2 essays for me in 24 hours
This is getting into the nitty gritty. I believe that a father vouching for his daughter in higher education and someone capable of writing this type of essay are mature enough to find some common ground.

I was thinking to myself, worst comes to worst if the writer gets deceived over here, all they got to lose was the essay the wrote. In my dictionary this constitutes one of the safest trades here on DDF.

Re: Smoking Meats
Baby back ribs. Smoke them like regular short ribs? Seeing different opinions. Some say do 3 2 1 or 2.5 1.5. 5
Some say just 225 and let them ride. Anyone have opinions?
Did 225 for about 7 hours. Wrapped at 4 or 5.temp was wildly inaccurate likely due to how thin the meat layer is between the bones. Every time I moved the probe it dropped from 180 to 165.

Re: Denied 80,000 points Marriott card bonus - need advice
noturbizniss, on the 12th some purchases were listed as pending. However, by the the time they went through, the sale date was listed as 1/14, unfortunately...
Sounds like you are screwed unless, as @as2 says you can put the blame on them. Unfortunately it sounds like there are 2 or 3 issues here, of which one is not due to chase. The late arriving card (initially) and then never actually sending it. The one not their fault is that your roommate took too long to send you the envelope. Depending how long it was from when they supposedly sent out the original "replacement" (that ended up being just a bill, you likely have no argument. They may respond that you shouldn't have waited 2 months (just picking out a number) to call back.
Finally, this goes to prove what everyone always says about sign ups. Ensure you have a way to meet the spend, and meet it QUICKLY. If you are going on vacation 2 weeks after signing up theres a risk you wont get the card.

Good luck!

Re: Riddles!
A famous riddle may have been asked before.  Three guys walk into a hotel and ask for a room for the night the hotel representative says it cost $30 for the three of them so they each pull out $10 and hand it to the representative after they go to their room the representative of the hotel realizes there was a sale and it only costed $25 so he calls over a hotel employee and gives him $5 and tells him to give it back to those three guys the employee takes the $5 and heads to the room on the way to their room the employee decides to keep two and only give them back three since $5 cannot be split evenly among 3 people so in the end each guy got back $1 that means they each paid $9 9 times the three of them is 27 plus the two that the employee stole is 29 what happened to the 30th dollar
Each paid9 and the employee had 2 dollars. Makes 25. The 2 is supposed to be subtracted not added

Quick question for the boys. What do you get out of these types of posts? I get that you enjoy hanging out on DDF, but really, there are better ways of having fun. Why continue to carry these type of posts on for no reason?
Who wastes more time. Me typing quick nothjng replies or you searching through the thread and picking out the quotes.

Re: Best Spending Practices for People that Lack Discipline.
Hassle to deal with, no online orders, no protection
debit cards work online.
protection - big deal. you lose a warranty or cant dispute 3 charges a year and lose a few bucks. better than paying thousands in interest.

you won't find a single person here who will tell you any cc will work if you lack discipline. Not worth the fishing expedition.

Re: Best Spending Practices for People that Lack Discipline.
You make good points about debt/interest.
However, personally this isn't currently a problem for me, as I can currently pay the bills.
Though I would like to build up savings and be able to buy some things needed for the house, and I have to hold back on those purchases due to spending not being in check.

ETA: Is there really no cards with budgets? My sapphire reserve doesn't have the option.
