Now I am going to get in trouble. I don't look at you as "Ultra".
I wear a wool blanket under my shirt even when it's hot out, have never eaten a Hersheys or Reeses, and I've never trimmed my beard.
So...what am I :D

I am looking to change State Farm agents.
LOL

What about Ultra Christian?

I never heard it being used, but if it was I'd consider it's a derogatory term.

That works, though those 3 things are probably not practiced by 95% of those who consider themselves Orthodox.

So in other words, would it be fair to say
Chassidim (and to some extent, black hatters)

and it's more based on a visual than someone else's label?
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Am I the only one here suspecting that's a plot by Russian descendants colluding to overturn our democracy?

Congratulations on finding one of the few pairs of unrelated Lubavitchers who aren't Russian

I have met Dan and aygart so it is more than just appearance. I think it is best I bow out before I unintentionally offend someone.
