  • Location: As always, silence is NOT an admission of agreement on DDF. It just means that people lack the stamina to keep on arguing with made up "facts", illogical arguments, deceiving statements, nasty and degrading comments, and fuzzy math. - @yelped

When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Neither the two siblings or the parents see anything wrong with it

Pro tip: Make orders every couple days and edit the order as needed closer in.

Love it! The best posts are often in the topic where they donít get noticed.

The study found that viral droplets expelled both in coughs and sneezes travels at speeds that range between 22 miles per hour to 68 miles an hours.  This translates to 33 feet per second and 100 feet per second.  The speed rate depends upon the strength of the original expulsion and how warm and moist the atmosphere is.  The study can be viewed at https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2763852.  The corresponding author of the study is Lydia Bourouiba, PhD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Essentially, an invisible cloud is created within the atmosphere (both an inside atmosphere and an outside atmosphere) that can hit neighboring people up to 27, yes, 27 feet away.

As someone here once said...you need to get out more. This is what happens when religious education trumps all. You get practical ignorance to a level unheard of before. Every person that took part in a minyan during this time should be barred from shuls that were closed during this time...forever.

This is also the sad outcome of hagiographic biographies of the personages of the previous generations where stories are told of mesirus nefesh for [fill in the blank] when in fact those stories never happened or are embellished beyond any truth. The mesirus nefesh in the concentration camps was by individuals not hundreds or thousands.

Thats the astonishing part. My next door neighbor is a DAYAN in Bobov45 forget about a chusid...a DAYAN!!! and he has been inside his house with hi sentire family for the better part of 2 weeks. They (Bobov45) were the first chasidim to get hit hard. His 2 brothers were hospitalized. I came out the back of my house and hes on his back porch davening with a minyan in the backyards behind our houses. Yes they were separated by gates etc. He is less than 6 feet from my porch though. Astonishing!!1

Hey, hey. This isn't a private venting forum. I don't know where your grandparents are from or why you are so mad, but I still have Holocaust surviving grandparents and hear 1st hand accounts from them which completely contradict what you wrote above. Their situation and mesiras nefesh can in no way compare to today's "minyan mesiras nefesh"...
