got mine seems fine although it says little,brown on the outside, on the inside i did not see anything besides some British publishing house.
any ideas to figure if it is legit or not?
and quite frankly what is the difference, ( is it assur or (lhavdil) illegal to buy?
On mine it says Egmont on both the inside and the box

The boy is in contact with Rabbi Strauss and he is helping him find the right yeshiva but I meant someone that can talk to this boy and hear him out and try and guide and strengthen him etc....
R Strauss may be able to help with that too.

Eatontown and Englewood are 2 totally different ballgames.
+10000 and it sounds like this boy belongs somewhere along that spectrum.

Got mine. Looks like a British edition with the printed price only in GBP, but quality looks comparable to the individual books we already have.
One thing I noticed is that the box has a different list of titles than what the books are. The list doesn't include Tintin and the Soviets or Alph Art which are in the set but does include Tintin & Co. which is not in the set.

From my sooper seekrit sources I have a picture of @Something Fishy in Brazil with his telephoto lens

First set the parameters. Let's assume the perimeter of the square donut is the same as the circumference of the round donut, and the inner perimeter of the round donut (i.e. the hole's perimeter) is the same as the inner circumference of the round donut. Now which one is bigger.

Editing to add the solution.

Let's say the length of the sides of the square donut on the outside are 4" and on the inside are 2". So the perimeters are 16" and 8". (And assume it's 1" in height for simplicity)

The round donut will have the same circumference if the outer diameter is ~5.1" and the inner diameter is ~2.5".

The volume of the square donut is 12 cubic inches (=4" x 4" x 1" - 2" x 2" x 1") and the volume of the round donut is ~15.3 cubic inches (=1*[Pi*5.1^2 - Pi*2.5^2]).

Note that this is not perfect because these are toruses and we have to account for the shape of curve along the z-axis, but it probably won't change the conclusion
In the original example the side was equal to the diameter

Just Shmooze / Re: Math is racist
« on: Yesterday at 04:36:52 PM »
If the left would present their ideas without the nonsense, maybe they would find acceptance. What happens is that the nonsense then becomes a part of the narrative and is bound to the subject forever after. If this proposal, with all the racist and white supremacy language, is accepted by the district as is, it will then be taught as reality in colleges. The fact that it is being presented in the context of math, which is mostly black and white (!), makes it all the more ludicrous. It's not (all) the actual proposals that are insane, it's the premise on which it is being presented that is insane.
THe right ignoring what is actually being proposed and focusing ENTIRELY on the platitudes is almost as ludirous

I've had this issue for a while already.
Do what pretty much always works for me-
CALL THEM.

I have UPS access points near me , so I ask them for a label to print out.

Hatzlacha!
The need to call is the problem
