LOL if you think there's any charity involved.
They decided to become a for profit charity organization at this time that will prioritize shipping medical equipment to the front lines. Don't get me wrong, it's admirable, but why on our dime? It shouldn't be forced on us. They should have given every prime member a choice to opt in to slower shipping for the time being to help them help the front lines.

Is that it? I know more people who had ingrown tonsils since pesach....
Say what??🤔🙀🙀

I thought tonsils get removed because tonsillitis.
Not the main reason but one of the reasons.
"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , strep throat is caused by a bacterial infection called group A Streptococcus. When group A strep is a recurring problem, the result can be utter misery. It's one reason why children may have their tonsils removed."

For people getting sick again it might be that the virus is still living in the body and it's just coming back
Had the same thought. Why can’t it be like recurring strep A, where basically the antibiotics knocks it out of the body but it still stays in the tonsils and just spreads back to body. That’s the reason lots of children get their tonsils removed. And some kids could also be just carriers of strep because it just sits in their throat without spreading to their body. Can viruses do the same? Not necessarily in the tonsils but we see diseases can linger in the body for a while.

Thanks for posting, very well put. I was thinking of writing similar in op but I’m no rabbi. Definitely gives lots of clarity.

Imagine someone trustworthy promised you five million dollars and said its gonna be in your bank account tomorrow. Tomorrow then came and the money did not. He then tells you, “tomorrow”. And tomorrow comes and again no money. This keeps happening day after day. I would assume that after just a few days you would pretty much loathe this person, let alone ever trust him again.

I remember when I was just a child and year Y2k- 2000 was approaching with so many Rabbis practically promising Mashiach will be coming that year.

Then it was 9/11…

Then it was the Iraq war…

Then it was Obama… Somehow gematria of Gog

Then it was Trumps dyed orange hair somehow meant Edom (which is actually red)…

Then it was (still is) the Israeli government deadlock…

Now it’s the epidemic…

The list is much longer and I’m sure everyone can add to it. And this time again, it’s very prominent Rabbonim (and some ddfr’s too ;)) telling us that It “has to be this Nissan”…All simanim are pointing towards the geula”:… with gematrias and different calculations to prove it. Isn’t the time of the Geula supposed to be hidden from us?!
Yes, I understand people are looking for hope, but it’s hope at the expense of faith.
During world events a few years back, a prominent Rabbi said that this must be the time of the geula. When that didn’t happen, I actually approached him respectfully and asked him about his prediction to which he answered that it was a time that was “mesugal” for Mashiach to come. I understand the concept of eis mesugal, but shouldn’t people say clearly - that it’s a eis mesugal - next time they feel Mashiach might be coming? Instead of practically guaranteeing that Mashiach is coming next week and getting peoples hopes sky high, and then dashing it.

People very often quote Maran HaRav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit”a saying that Mashiach will be coming at a certain time, and when you actually dig deeper, all he said was that he HOPES Mashiach will be there by then.

Yes, we say Ani mamin – I believe with complete faith in the coming of the Masiach, it doesn’t say He WILL come this or that specific time.

And I sincerely hope Mashiach will be here today!

What am I missing?

Verizon has $400 off with trade in if any iPhone 5s or later which you can buy on eBay for $45. And if your switching from a different carrier you get another $400 prepaid Visa card. It’s a 2 year agreement though.

btw, for those selling on eBay, if you subscribe to a basic store the fee for selling coins is 6.15% as opposed to 10%

Also the 1st 2 I sold on ebay were auctions and closed at 636(offer) and a bid of $709. Now they're going for over $1000. What are the risks of cancelling the purchase even if the buyer already paid?
Guilty feelings, and buyer can (and should >:() leave negative reviews. Also can potentially lead to eBay account shutdown.
