Quote from: Dan DDMS
This wallet has a cult following on DDF from members who love its slim profile and performance, even with a lot of cards.

I want to thank all my supporters who bought this wallet and believed in me. I want to thank my wife for always standing by me and above all I want to thank basic for making this day possible.

Re: Frum Orthodox Pilots
Aboutley. The Torah is not literal. Unless u say the world was created old in which case there is no argument. Otherwise, you are ignoring every fact that tells you otherwise.but we've had this discussion before and it is pointless. You can't argue with people who don't think for themselves.
Why can't hashem make something seem older in order to test us?
Not sure why we need to go here in this thread though. The name calling is juvenile.

The waiters need to be there even when customers aren't.
I'm not tipping for the waiters to be there when I'm not, that's just one of the business owners costs which goes into the price he charges for his dishes.

Re: why does DD's hate Elal
Does a parent hate a child that they critique and tells him how to get better?

If DD "hated" El Al they wouldn't have spent hours on the phone explaining exactly what to improve, change, and how to actually make money like some US airlines.

They have so much potential and seeing them shooting themselves in the foot makes it so much worse, being that they are Israel's airline.
Knowing how anything works in Israel, shooting themselves in the foot is par for the course.

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
steak
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. https://status.emeraldclub.com/ (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 hertzstatusmatch@hertz.com

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.

Re: Antarctica Cruise Raffle (discussion?)
A big point here, is finding a charity that appeals to all sects of Judaism. We need to figure out where we can give this cash to, that most of the people who are interested in this raffle, would want to give $ to.
Why do we have to make it confusing. We can leave out the charity and make a simple raffle that covers the exact cost of the trip?

July 23, 2018, 12:21:03 PM

Re: Antarctica Cruise Raffle (discussion?)
Because many seem to be more willing to enter based on the fact that a percentage will be going to charity. With the amount of tickets we need to sell, having it all go solely to pay for someones cruise, may deter those less interested. Also, if we don't sell out, it would be a mess returning all the money.
I don't really get that. My $100 or $180 or whatever is going towards the cruise regardless, tacking on extra money for a tzedakah isn't changing that.

Re: If I Could, I Would... (Master Thread)
#1 I don't understand what you're saying.

#2 that's true. If the person truly needed such strong painkillers then they are definitely going to be messed up from such a policy. On the other hand if they didn't need such strong drugs and weren't careful to only take non addictive painkillers then it's their fault*.
At the end of the day how many people like that are there?

#3 100% but they would also have to discontinue manufacturing the other addictive drugs (which might be impossible due to the black market).

#4 Not necessarily to die out just to not have children. So future generations won't be so prone to start taking drugs.
True. If I wanted I could answer that not doing it will kill more in the long run.
What I wrote to exgingi.
There's another person at fault. The patient.
*(If anybody here is addicted to anything. I don't mean to be mean so don't be offended.)
Oy, where do I start?
People generally listen to their doctor's and other medical professionals when they tell them what they need to get better. It's rarely the fault of the patient when they get addicted to opioids. Doctors often prescribe stronger medication for longer than necessary, do some research, the numbers are out there. Large pharmaceutical companies successfully changed the way drugs are prescribed in this country and that, along with some poor government regulations, (which ironically make it easier to get for those who don't need it and harder for those who do ie. hospice patients) has been a major factor in the causing the opioid epidemic that we now have. The average person who gets addicted to pain meds is not "not being careful", they're just not educated on the risks and dangers of taking opioids for extended periods of time. As for how many of those people are there? You'd be surprised, it's a lot. Speak to someone who's involved in the field, the number of people who have had their lives ruined because of prescription medication is high, too high.

To address your point in #4- I'm not sure if you really understand how this works. Some people are more genetically predisposed to addiction in general, it's a physiological thing. But that applies to addiction in general, there's no distinction there between opioids, caffeine, nicotine, or any other thing that you can get addicted to. Some people are just more likely to get addicted and to do so faster than others. That could be you though and you'd never know. This does not mean, however, that the people addicted to some sort of opioid right now are genetically predisposed to addiction, AFAIK there's no reason to think that the average addict is any different than the average non-addict. Statistically it makes sense that a slightly higher percentage of addicts will be more disposed but I still don't think that that is enough of a reason to say that it's better that these people shouldn't have kids. Of course having kids grow up in a house with drug addicts is a horrible situation and dangerous for the children.

The fact that you think it would be better for addicts to either die out or not have their line propagated is, IMO, pure רשעות. Why you would want that, as apposed to helping addicts overcome their addiction and lead healthy productive lives, is totally beyond me.

What I do find interesting is the direction you took to get to what is, IMO, one of the best ways we probably have to combat drug addiction and make it easier and safer for people to get help. Not to mention regulate the drug trade so we don't have people dying from cartels and laced drugs. Legalizing and regulating all drugs or at least many more may very well be our best shot at this but unfortunately it's highly unlikely to ever happen in today's political climate in the US. There is such a wrongful stigma attached to addiction in general and specifically drug and opioid addiction, that it is very hard for addicts to get help and tradition into productive, healthy members of society. Anything we can do to change that is something we should pursue, especially in our community where the stigma is doubled.

Re: How to ask a non-observant Jew to put on tefillin?
Guys, you were being asked to put on Rabeinu Tam...

  • No Yalmuka, ask to put on teffilin.

  • Yalmuka no breard, ask to put on rabeinu tam.

  • Beard plus long payus, ask to learn a chapter tanya.

This is the basics of mivtzoim.
Oh, that's how it works? I see. So next time I see some guys hanging around with tefillin I'll ask them if they want to learn a perek of Shulchan Aruch with me.

Re: How to ask a non-observant Jew to put on tefillin? Guide to not getting accosted by Lubavitchers:

- Make sure your tzitzis are not tucked in.
- Wear your black hat, but first sit on it and roll it through a bunch of dips and salads first.
- If it's Shabbos, wear a towel around your neck (around the waist will not help).
- If the Lubavitcher does not have a yellow flag, yechi yarmulke or any such parephernalia, put on a yechi yarmulke and unfurl your flag.
- If the Lubavitcher does have those items, you're out of luck.
- On Sukkos, carry around a sleeping bag and pillow and ask if they have slept in the sukkah yet.
- Do not put on a t-shirt that says, "I already put on tefillin" (or bentched lulav, etc.). It won't help.

Re: Comments That Leave Me Speechless...
Source?

1) The source for the halacha above is the Gemara Sanhedrin 47a. The Gemara learns it out from the depraved Jews who were killed in the time of the churban. They were clearly mechalel Shem shamayim barabim. See also Radak Yirmiyah 5:1

2) The source that מיתה is מכפר for chilul Hashem according to the mechilta is the passuk by the sons of עלי הכהן. They were מחלל שם שמים ברבים.

3) The numerous seforim who discuss the level of חילול השם and מיתה מכפרת are never mechalek. See for example ראשית חכמה פרק גידול בנים אות כח where he makes no distinction between the two.

4) If you still need a מקור בפירוש see the מרפה לשון (he was the one who appointed Rav Chaim Volohzhiner to be Rav of Volozhin) in עמוד התורה (p. 93 in the new edition) where he spells it out clearly.

I think itís time to move on and close the subject.
