Anyone else ever see a guy in a Grey VW Jetta with tinted windows taking pics of a house on his phone? Wondering if itís suspicious or maybe just a mortgage company or something.
No reason to assume it's not an appraiser..

Did all of their credit history come up when they pulled it?

I have pulled credit on people thousands of times I've never seen a zero it's probably a mistake in the information being entered and they're actually getting a 9004 / 9003  (no credit found, not enough information)
I don't know what came up.. they keep insisting must be frozen but Equifax says it ain't..

What does it mean when Equifax returns a score of zero?

Initially lender thought it meant credit was frozen but Equifax says it is not frozen..

This is for a high net worth individual with dozens of inquiries, loans and investments.

Honda Odyssey 2012

Rear trunk door electronic opener button does not work. Can only open trunk from inside with a screwdriver...

All rear lights are working so I am assuming it's not a fuse. - is this a correct assumption? They all seem to be coming from the same wires that branch off..

Need to figure out which is broken, the switch or the motor that opens the latch to know which one to replace.. any suggestions?

2. cost of an out of pocket COVID-19 test?
You can be sent to quarentine in a hotel for 14 days upon return to Israel. (Basically a jail sentence).

They just tried this with my bil today..

When someone converts to Chabad they have to dip in mikvah 770 times and straight from there they have to do 770 somersaults on the floor of 770.

For some it takes multiple attempts before the conversion is complete.
Unless they are recruited

Is there a minhag to roll around on the floor if 770?
I saw a video of  that being done this morning
Yes. They do it at many different occasions. Usually starts after a half a bottle of vodka though

They figured out how to be younger people?

The big question is what is the comparable stage from the last round to where we are today. I think it is pretty clear that we are at 2 weeks before Purim at the very latest. In order for it to have spread to the amount of people who had it shortly after purim the had to have been THOUSANDS of cases within the frum community when Purim started. It took about a month from the similar stage for that to happen.
The comparable stage now is 2 weeks after purim (shavuos where all SD ended).

If you are fearful of a true brand new second wave starting, then ein ladovor sof litterally for years.

I probably shouldn't wade in here, but I ask this as someone still strictly SD and wearing a mask in Flatbush. I understand where everyone says the group that's abandoned these practices is coming from - mistrust of doctors and politicians and a sense that they have herd immunity and others are getting away with it, etc., etc. - all the arguments. I get it.

But we're at least dealing with the possibility of a safek pikuach nefesh (not to mention chillul Hashem, which is a biggie as well). As a religion, we tend to be pretty machmir in such cases, paskening that that's enough to push aside everything we do except for 3 things (which don't apply here). They say that a gadol hador once publicly made kiddush on Yom Kippur during a mageifah to make sure everyone would eat and drink and stay alive.

We're not asking anyone to do that, just to wear a $.50 mask when they come to shul. So even if they don't trust the doctors and politicians, how many of the people who've "paskened" that the mask is unnecessary asked their Rav - who I hope they still trust - whether they are allowed to discard it? If their Rav told them it's okay, I might have issues with the Rav, but at least they can feel that they asked a shailah.

But if not, who among us self-proclaimed chachamim has big enough shoulders to pasken that a shailah of safek pikuach nefesh and safek chillul Hashem l'kula? If they would go to the Rav with a kashrus mess in the kitchen or with a questionable bedikah, why isn't the question of a mask worth asking to your Rav?
Do masks only protect others, not the mask wearer?

The rules and guidelines will become clear on June 12, as per Avi Schnall
How many ppl are allowed to gather in a blm protest? It's not a facetious question, if the governor really allows massive protests with "social distancing", there's no way they can restrict size of gatherings for weddings etc
