Little Happy Moments The Pet Peave thread needs a thread to counteract it.

My happy moment today: found a $10 deposit in my checking account today. Pretty sure it's from TD Banks customer appreciation day.

Re: Car Lease Master Thread

the companies clearly have the residual values wrong...

If your not in the biz you dont actually know whats going on. I'm not in the biz but I can speculate (and base on friends who do leasing) that with the competition now days there is much less money to make. And that normally dealers take a nice commission on each car they sell, making the MSRP much higher than what the dealer gets it for.  Combine the two points above - they have a small margin of income and are getting it for cheaper than you - viola, the numbers are right although seem wrong. Sorry if I didnt explain this well, and missed/skipped a few steps.

Re: Bathrobe Recommendations
My wife asked me for a super warm and thick bathrobe. Anyone know whats best out there? Obviously priced well also.
Story: Someone booked a Park Hyatt stay. The next shower he took at home he had a decent bathrobe. The end.

Re: Lakewood NJ Master Thread

The concept already exists in the secular world called "pop up restaurants". It can target higher end customers who are already dulled by the menu of the local high end places and are looking for new and exciting food. It's true that there may not be enough such people in Lakewood to support such a business model. Time will tell.

There are plenty of high end dulled people in Lakewood bh

This sign at Walmart about price matching... I went into Walmart today to pick something up I ordered during the price war two weeks ago.
This sign was at the pickup counter.
I don't know if it's a general policy or store specific.

Re: FBI Raids Orthodox Homes and Businesses in Monsey and KJ
DH's statement - besides being a moronic thing to publicize - is pure BS.  Were these families living with 6 children per bedroom sleeping on mattresses on the floor?  Were they sharing a box of pasta for dinner every night?  No, they weren't.  They wanted their cake and to eat it too.  Pure greed and/or entitlement.
I can guarantee every one of these families started taking programs when they were 100% eligible. Once you're hooked to this free money faucet, it's very difficult to stop. Almost like substance addiction, people who were recently poor have a hard time parting with their survival mindset. If we can assign some medical diagnosis to this, maybe the feds would respect their rights. If a man can feel like a girl, a prince can feel like a pauper. 🌈

+1 I say there should be a policy, anyone getting a tuition break has to give their tzedakah money to the school and not to the flashy tzedakahs orgs.
Doesn't work as maaser if obligated, but then again if you're getting a tuition break you should not have a chiyuv to give maaser

Re: Prison Maybe I'm alone here, but I think what has drawn me to this thread, is less the prison experience, but more the outlook you, @hvaces42 have/had throughout. The storyline is interesting, but doesn't hit me the way you seem to genuinely believe what you're saying, not just saying it because "that's what people in this situation say". The way you put things actually provokes thoughts within others to put their lives in prospective. While I can only speak for myself, I'd assume most of us aren't and weren't in situations anything like this one, but we all face challenges and tests in some shape or size, that these lessons can be adapted to. I just want to say thank you, for inspiring me, a person not always so easily inspired. I'm sure it gets better as it goes on, but I've already taken more from this thread, than I've taken from many books, speeches, etc. Nobody should have to live hell on earth, but thank g-d when those who do, can do something like this with that miserable experience. Kudos.

Re: Rubashkin freed from prison.
All I did was answer a question. Why bring in this trash?

he was not guilty of the crimes that the raid was based on. Cleared of all charges. No illegal hiring. No drugs.

Only after a month of paying 3x salaries to new unskilled workers in the aftermath of the raid, did he need to go out and take a loan based on the value of his property. NOBODY gets 27 years for that. Nobody is being hurt. Bank is 100% fine with his repayment plan.

This 27 year sentence by the judge (above the prosecution's request) was pure anti-Semitism and she was too involved in the prosecution's case to be able to be an unbiased judge from the beginning.

Re: Random questions.
Not getting into that now
Would this be accurate?
Jewish philosophy stresses that free will is a product of the intrinsic human soul, using the word neshama (from the Hebrew root or .נ.ש.מ meaning "breath"), but the ability to make a free choice is through Yechida (from Hebrew word "yachid", יחיד, singular), the part of the soul that is united with God,[citation needed] the only being that is not hindered by or dependent on cause and effect (thus, freedom of will does not belong to the realm of the physical reality, and inability of natural philosophy to account for it is expected).

Re: What's your predictions for 2018?
  • On Dec 31, 2018 @aygart and a new member with remarkably similar positions to @ChaimMoskowitz will be arguing about politics on Every. Single. Thread.
  • Trump will not be impeached.
  • Gary Sanchez hits more home runs than Judge, Stanton and Bird (individually).
  • @churn-baby-churn ceases making snide remarks about Chabad. It makes him feel strangely good. He starts a chavrusah with @Freddie and next Chanukah the menorah on his car gets smashed in a parking garage. He disavows Chabad.
  • @ExGingi still won't have tried Izzy's.
  • @henche is still henche, but after henching a hench, zhe achieves peak henche with the henchiest henchover henchstory.
  • @Dan packs it all up and starts a restaurant review instagram channel. He gains enough weight to finally end the Benny confusion. He sells the rights to Dans Deals to @jj1000 for a pair of Ecco shoes, a Mike's dinner and 5 Indians tickets. (Dan ultimately refuses the latter because he finds better tickets than JJ did for half the price.)

PSA: DO NOT BANK WITH CHASE OR YOUR CREDIT CARDS MAY GET CLOSED! I know a LOT of people (myself included) that Chase closed all their credit cards due to to Chase deciding to end their banking relationship with them,
Regardless of the reason of these terminations, there are plenty of other banks that offer the same services, even if a little bit less, losing their credit cards is far worse than not banking with them to begin with.
I think hundreds of people can agree with what I say.
If you already have an account with them I'd suggest to close it and say good bye to their banking...

JJ1000's 10,000 Post Featuring: A day in the life of Dan, Giveaway, & More It's hard to imagine I joined DDF over 10 years ago, of course this was after I made the first comment on DDMS 14 years ago and joining ctown forums after that.

I really can't begin to count the memories I have here on DDF, one that comes ot mind is the first major DO where @Dan @AsherO @BrooklynCPA @Mikeoracle @Smirk @MOSES @whYME @yare @Avid Reader @Chachem Balaileh @mancunian @yid @SuperFlyer all had an amazing time.

Picture of the DO:

Back at that DO no one really knew who I was, besides that I was the guy who started the jokes thread, which I must say was one of my finest additions to DDF ;)

Since that DO I have made countless friends and received countless favors from DDF members, who truly are like family.

Some that come to mind.

@rots5 and @moish putting me up in Israel while @moishebatchy offered my friends and I extra sheets for our stay, this was of course when we went with the first El AL glitch tickets. @SamKey For hooking up his apartment for Pesach and @Emkay for some awesome kugel, that I am pretty sure had an ok hechsher. @Chaikel for setting up a sweet Jamaican honeymoon.

@steve2 and the fights other new comers used to love to pick like @AJK when he was a total troll back in the day and @HelpMe who IMO had no idea what he fell into when he got here, and I'd like to think was very happy that he stayed.

@TimT is always there to offer some advice and is obviously the best searcher on DDF, @AsherO and @aussiebochur used to be that helpful guy until he got too busy for us ;)

Of course there was @JEWDA who it's still hard to believe isn't here anymore, going to his widows house the day after my Lchaim/vort with my then fiance will always be very special to me. The way DDF comes together when someone is in need (@SBS thread) is so heart touching it's hard to explain.

@mileagejunkie @Marco Polo @myi @YossieW @stooges44 @davidmal @Yaalili @B.D.Da'ehu @ben89 and of course @Davidthebest are my 100 HT club peeps, and have helped ignite the great deals we post every day to help tens of thousands of people save (and maybe spend) money every day. I really appreciate every deal that's sent to us and that's posted on DDF.

I couldn't possibly remember all of the countless nights I stayed up to argue with someone that was wrong about the most random things imaginable. @churnbabychurn @ExGingi @aygart @ChaimMoskowitz and of course many others can always be counted on for some good popcorn when it's needed. And @sky121 can always be counted on for a balanced and positive view on any subject.

Some dude coming along looking to sell a stinky old fish tank has drastically improved the trip reports and photography skills of DDF, hats off to you @Something Fishy.

@DH Data Recovery practically owned the tech deals on ddf at one point, and he @chevron and @txtmax4  are always good for a wine recommendation.

Wrigley softball DO with @SrulyS @Moes Tavern @Redbull3 @MosheD @EJB @chucksterace @Bentch @grodnoking @AJK @Yitzshpitz @Dan@Yodai Dooma @ShmulieCFS @JTZ

One day I may even meet @henche though that is likely IMPOSSIBLE.

Big shoutout to @BAHayman, @Eli, and @Suave for making DDMS/DDF able to run and be what it is today thanks to them!

The first DDF shidduch was super cool @Lou Bob @MC to many more, spending shabbos together in Aruba on the Hyatt Price Mistake was awesome.

Crazy to imagine there are over 300 members with 1,000+ posts so my apologies, I'm sure I missed many memories.

I made a thread asking what I should do for my 10,000 post, and I will try to do most of them below.

Enjoy :)
A typical day in the life of Dan:

Some names and identifying details have been changed to protect the privacy of individuals.

Dan wakes up from an amazing night's rest on his W Hotel mattress. and tell his Echo Dot which he got for free to turn on the Breville Coffee Maker plugged into his smart plug.

Get into hisNissan Altima and take the quick 2 minute drive to shachris.

After davening, @AJK texts Dan that AA has a Price Mistake to LA in F for $5, if they buys it in the airport and flies today. Naturally Dan just heads straight to the airport and boards the flight to LA. On the plane there is a dog next to him, which was strange at first until he realized it was just @meshugener flying in F as well.

In LAX Dan visits the United lounge, which he has free access to with his lifetime membership and his JMPRCC. He picks up his rental from Silver Car and heads to Tierra Sur for the Lunch DO.

In LA @Yehoshua @Cholentfresser @Yaalili @PlatinumGuy @yehuda @D93 @etech0 @ilherman and @David Smith all meet up for the DO.

All of a sudden Barto walks in and instinctively, the group makes a beeline for the door. But before they can bail, he stops them...And says he planned the AA Price Mistake in order to get a face to face with Dan after all these years.

Barto has realized after years of being the bad guy, he just wanted to hang out with the cool kids on DDF from the olden days like @Drago @Saver2000 @Cbs @Q274 @MarkS @aussiebochur , @chuchem and @myb821, he said even though it's @noturbizniss but he left his old job and as he was leaving he reinstated all the damage he's done over the years, returning millions of miles to their rightful owners.

Everyone was very happy and had drinks all around as well as
grilled to perfection.

After Lunch Dan drives back to the airport and rushes to catch his flight home as he realizes it is almost time for his UPS delivery. On the plane he uses the on board Wi-Fi to make some posts and read DDF (this is actually what takes up 18 hours of the day every day, besides shabbos).

He makes it home just in time to receive his UPS delivery of US Mint coins. He had set up delayed delivery back in 2009 and every day since then he has been receiving a $10k shipment of US Mint coins shipped via the UPS Method. To date this has netted a cool 30,000,000+ SPG points.

At the end of the day he reflect on life and remembers what is really important and what he is thankful for.

Now it's time to count to 10,000 and fall asleep.

(This is a fairly typical day)

Just some simple tricks for car rental status.

You can get free Sixt Platinum status when you sign up with this link. Once you confirm your email address you can login and instantly get your card online that shows you as Platinum.

Then match that status to National and hopefully get Executive elite, possibly Executive. (Can also apply here directly for executive)

Then email Hertz Simply enroll in the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Program then provide proof of your identity and proof of status with other car rental companies via email to

And apply for Enterprise Platinum here.

Avis you can try via social media or calling sometimes.

Fell free to add more matches in the comments.
A quick chazara of all my posts: Your attitude is what decides your mood, not what's going on. You can have a trip ruined if something goes wrong, or it can become one of the most memorable trips of your life. Roll with the punches. Always have a healthy dose of cynicism. Understand that someone with beliefs to the right of you or the left of you aren't wrong, just different, a rainbow would be pretty ugly with just one color. Enjoy life and always cherish what's most important to you, and try to keep that in mind every second of every day.

As a last note I'd like to do a small giveaway. just comment on this thread and I'll choose one winner to get a Google Home Mini and another winner to get the best card games IMO being Codenames and Monopoly Deal.

I can't thank DDF enough for giving me all the opportunities life has to offer, from making friends, traveling the world, to supporting my family, I couldn't do any of it without this truly amazing community.

Just to end off with a special thanks to Dan for starting it all and giving me the opportunity to grow the site and live the blessed life that I do.
