Re: BitCoin Master Thread
Coinbase is giving me very low limits, even for ACH. I want to buy a whole bitcoin for weeks already, but it looks like it will take a few months until I am able to do that on their site. Is there anywhere else I can instantly buy a whole bitcoin with no limits?
Gdax if they give you the option for wire or ACH transfer.

Re: Prison
I actually had my wife read this thread and asked her this question. She said she would rather relocate elsewhere than have her husband sit even one day. In today's day and age with facetime and Whatsapp, and a practical air bridge between USA and Israel, it isn't worse than sitting (and the attached stigma). But again, no-one in their right mind should use this as leverage.
Running away from your problems doesnt make them go away. The stigma goes away if you contiue to do the right thing for a long time. I know leaders in certain industries who won lifetime achievement awards from the industry after living my exact story. So running away is easier than hard work, I get that. But where is the growth in character and being a normal functioning member of society when you dont deal with your issues amd just run away an hide from them.

I said it before and it bears repeating. As bad as life is now I wiuld do it again to get where I am today. Not afraid to deal with situations and tackle life head on are very high on my priority list today. I have a better relationship with my wife and my kids. I have a difderent appreciation of what is really important in life. I can see through BS much easier.

There are infinite possibilities when someone is abstinent and in recovery that cannot be had when one is in the throes of an addiction.

You can go to sleep. Im done for tonight. The haters can rest up for tomorrows posts. Tell me how good it was and how many others have had the same experience and how I'm just looking for attention and its all made up. Get some rest and think of some more things.  ;D #DDFTHUGLIFE 8)

Re: Grammar and Spelling Lessons 101
I'm a Brit now living in the US. Over here, you spell it "traveling", but in the UK we spell it "travelling".

What do you do about "rebel" -- is it "rebelling" or "rebeling"?

When do you do a double "L" and when not? In short, where do you draw the line? (I love puns! ::) )
For the most part Americans do not double; Brits do.  Americans will sometimes double a final 'l' when the accent is not on the first syllable and the second syllable is a short vowel: (yes, @etech0)

'tra vel -   traveling    1st syll accent
'fuel     -   fueling
'can cel-   canceling

re 'bel  -   rebelling    2nd syll accent+short vowel
com 'pel - compelling

tra 'vail -  travailing   2nd syll accent+long vowel
con 'ceal - concealing

Re: RIP/BDE Master Thread
Wow!!! He held himself back from calling the guy who was pressing him a Baal Gaaveh too. The guy wasnt getting the answer he wanted so he pressed and pressed. Why couldnt he be honest and say, "This is what i need to hear, whether you agree or not".
R Shteinman famously once asked this person being videoed how much of what he did was lishmah and how much was shelo lishmah. The person (R' Sholom Ber Sorotzkin, although if you didn't know that then you shouldn't be commenting on this video) answered 90% shelo lishmah, 10% lishmah. R' Shteinman said "It's a pity it's not 100% shelo lishmah, or we'd have another 10 kollelim".

Re: Jokes Master Thread In a particular small country, there was a king. He was much beloved of the people, and so they built for him a castle. But they were poor people and could only afford to build it out of grass. So they worked for weeks, and finally completed a lovely woven grass castle for him. And the king was pleased.

Another country, significantly richer than the first, presented a peace offering of an ornate throne. The king accepted this gift graciously and was most pleased. The only trouble was, the throne was very uncomfortable. So the king got himself a more comfortable chair and kept the massive throne in the attic. Naturally, it fell through the floor and killed him.

The moral of this story: People who live in grass houses shouldn't stow thrones.

Re: Women in Jewish magazines
I think the lack of pictures of even young girls in clothing ads epitomizes that there is something strange here.

I think they would respond by saying that it’s not good chinuch to get young girls involved in modeling. I would just counter that by saying that they hire non-Jewish girls to model. In fact, they don’t have to be involved in the photography at all. There are companies that will take your clothing line, find the models and do the photography for you. (Some heimishe companies do this.)

In general, I think that the more promiscuous society gets, the more insular frum communities will become as a counter-measure. Think about it this way: normally you keep alcohol in plain view at home. However, if a family member has an alcohol problem, you will start to hide it. If his problem gets worse, you will throw it out and stop buying alcohol altogether. If it gets more extreme, you may throw out any magazines that have advertisements for alcohol and tell your family to not mention the word “alcohol” at all etc..

Point is, women’s faces became “not tznius” when society started shoving women’s bodies in people’s faces.

Re: Women in Jewish magazines

That does not sound like a reasonable response. See chava for example of what happens when you make whats mutar assur.
There is a distinction between making what’s mutar assur, and building a “fence”.

In this case, privately owned publications have a right to set guidelines as they see fit. They can deny an advertisement if they don’t like the way your nose looks.

Society is being very smug and disingenuous about the way women are being projected. They are hypersexualizing women day in and day out and telling you that if you don’t like it then you are just plain sexist, because you are trying to “suppress” women’s bodies.

It’s NOT normal for a man to immediately have non-tznius thoughts when looking at a woman’s face. However, when women are portrayed to men from a very young age as objects, this is where their mind will race to. Fight me all you want on this, but you KNOW it’s true.

Personally, I think that they SHOULD publish women in their publications in SPITE of society’s downfall. But I don’t blame them for taking a stance.

Re: Women in Jewish magazines
Are the ones who 'yell' the loudest always right?
Let's weigh the cost for each side.
Publication stands up for "women's rights"=loses subscribers, advertisers, risks being banned.
Publication stands up for "higher levels of tznius" = loses maybe a few subscribers (who probably were to "sophisticated" to read anything that the magazine was publishing anyway)
Quotes around words to imply the exaggerating

Re: Why do some Jewish communities prohibit women from driving?
I have enough confidence in the chinuch I give my kids not to be adversely affected by such a class mate.

I also have confidence in my kids schools to give such solid chinuch, that if there was something inappropriate about parents הנהגות, it would eventually resolve through והשיב לב אבות על בנים.

Looks like your doing a good job!

My point throughout this thread is everyone has a line they don't want to cross. We are judging someone else's line.
Most here are fine with a woman not being able to smoke, as opposed to men but question the legitimacy of not letting them drive.
Most here are fine with a woman not being able were short sleeves or pants, as opposed to men but question the legitimacy of not letting a woman drive.
Most don't want there kids in a class with a non-shomer shabbos kid but question someone else lines.
Some understand a family exposed to TV internet Movies as a valid line but question others line.

My point being as long as you have a line how can you judge some else that want to draw a different line.

Re: Interesting Articles...
I once heard from R' Menashe Reisman that before the Mabul there existed advanced technologies (he had a mekor), and I think he explicitely mentioned cell phones. So not soooo far-fetched...

Did he happen to mention if they had Verizon wireless service?

Re: The Pros And Cons Of Where You Live
Excuse my ignorance (I'm originally from England), but what is "Chofetz Chaim"? A kehilla? Yeshiva? Is it affiliated with Rabbi Zaks in Monsey?

Chofetz chaim is both a sefer, and a person. The person wrote the sefer.  He lived in Radin, and had a yeshiva, and wrote the sefer. He is Rabbi Zaks' grandfather or greatgrandfather or something.  Why is Rabbi Zaks' name not Kagan? I dunno, why is your name not Avinu if you're descended from avraham.

There's also some orgs that incorporate his name. Like the chofetz chaim heritage foundation, as if the chofetz chaim's heritage is  everyone watching a movie on tisha b'av afternoon, with a frum version and a frei version.

Obviously, the chofetz chaim's real heritage is the yeshiva named after him, that was opened by his nephew, whose name is also not Kagan (I ASK YOU AGAIN, IS YOUR NAME AVINU? NO? SO I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT).

True - a better sentence would be "I order so much stuff from Amazon, that they send me many packages every day."

No comma.

Commas are used after coordinating (FANBOYS) conjunctions.

Re: Master Thread of Pet Peeves
Still on the knots. I'll come back in a week
Yup, don't get roped into these halachic arguments that knot up every thread here. People are so tightly wound and won't loosen up at all - it can really throw you for a loop.

Best not to get tied down to any side of a discussion, and certainly don't double down. You can string together a beautiful argument laced with wit and humor, but someone will inevitably find a stray frayed strand in the thread and yank it right out of context to undo everything.

Better to just to just slip out and loaf around someplace else.
