If this is the kind of thing he is basing it on, it's not a mistranslation, but a willful misrepresentation. Aka, a lie.
Agreed. I was actually thinking to add this point to my post.

So than what does it mean?
A much better translation would be 'Faithful to The Rebbe Mh"M.'

If this is what he was talking about, "faithfully believed in the Rebbe's messiahship" is a horrible mistranslation.

Can't you just weigh in on the facts as presented in the article?
Maybe if I actually read it. And others here have already weighed in on that anyways so .


And in case it wasn't clear, I was talking about weighing in in terms of this aspect:
I think every. single. person. who ever went of the derech can write the exact same article and choose any one aspect of their life to blame it on.

He chose some random reason that is a hot topic, so more people are reading it. But there's nothing novel or new about a bitter person writing why he chose to live differently than his parents.
the education his parents have that he was deprived of
not everyone's stated reason is their true/only reason. Bullying, neglect, abuse, and family-of-origin issues are oftentimes significant factors

I'm really tempted to weigh in here but I'm not sure I can without it basically being a personal attack on this author.

Although he deserves it, I'm not sure I want to go there...

(I haven't read this article, but I have seen some of his past )

Gotta love how there's not even a hava amina for someone technically being qualified but b'shita not attempting...

Now as low as $6.79 with SS.
I've been using these for years now and I don't believe I've ever seen them this low...

Interesting, makes him look weak, no?
I must've seen like 7000 ads for him, it seems from them that his primary qualification for being mayor is that he was beaten by cops when he was younger

Politics / Re: LA Times column about a recent gun control ruling

Interesting that a column about a legal ruling doesn't bother addressing the legal arguments.
Well addressing the legal arguments would require dealing with  the 'inconvenient' constitution :)

Where do these idiots come from?
California.

Although this judge shows that not everyone there is an idiot like Newsom and this author.

I explained why but that falls on deaf ears.
It falls on deaf ears because even though you explained your mistake in quoting that post, you keep ignoring that it answers your (straw man) question.

Because you mixed things up.

Yuneeq started speaking about people being attacked *because* of their identity. Jews get attacked because they are Jews more than any other group.
But because he misstated one line about it "being more dangerous" for Jews, you started beating that drum.

Then Lurker, Yuneeq, myself, and WhyMe (and perhaps others) clearly stated what the claim really is. Those who have argued with you (I think it is just sguitarist) almost certainly don't realize you are speaking about overall danger while they are speaking about danger *for being Jewish*.

Ltttc was responding to WhyMe, not saying it is more dangerous for Jews.


The funniest (saddest?) part of all this is that the post he quoted to start this thread is one where @yuneeq makes it perfectly clear that he's talking about hate crimes, not deadly or dangerous in an absolute sense.

Maybe these pics help, the second pic with the matchstick is to illustrate (via the angle of the toothpick) how ďwideĒ the hole is:
I can't really tell the depth from the pictures. I think it's doable but probably a little tricky. I've done this with fairly thin wood before.

I think what I would do personally is break some toothpicks in half (probably a little bigger than the depth of the holes) and stick them in along with some wood glue with the pointed ends facing outward. the pointed ends outward is so the screw can be wedged in without just pushing them out the back and the glue is primarily to also help hold them there while being screwed in. I'd probably wait a few minutes for the glue to set a little then carefully put in the screws making sure not to push out the toothpicks.

If the screws you have are not fully threaded, make sure the part that's actually in contact with the wood is mostly threaded...

I donít think itís that thick, it seems more like 1/8Ē or less. If I can get a good pic Iíll post one.
Doesn't make sense.

The panels are probably 1/8" or less but there needs to be a frame holding things in place and keeping it rigid. (Unless you meant you're trying to attach something to the panel?)

Amazon & Walmart Deals / Re: Wilmar 26-PC Screwdriver Set ($11.21)

One advantage is they're a lot thinner and can fit many places where a 5-in-1 cannot.

For someone who uses them heavily I imagine individual ones are more convenient than dealing with always swapping bits.

@whYME or anyone else. Having the same issue now with a hollow door. The hinge screw holes are worn and the door is hollow so toothpicks donít work. Should I try toggle bolts (they seem too big?...), wood filler (would it just fall into the hollow door like the toothpicks), anchors, or something else?
Is the wood cracked by the screw holes or are they just worn out? even a cheap hollow door should have a 1/2" - 3/4" frame where the toothpick/matchstick  trick should work. You just need to make sure not to push them in too deep so they don't fall inside (this is where the glue comes in handy) then cut/break off the part sticking out.

ETA: I see the thread calling me an anti-Semite was deleted. Wish it wasn't as it shows ones true colors.
Let me guess, you think JJ1000 really thinks TimT is a lying cheating scumbag...
