by the way no one seems to mention the difficulties getting children into school in BKLYN just starting girls now u need pull in BYA, Bnos Yisrael, BY 18th Avenue and that's just getting started- boy's lets talk about the elitist attitude of the cheder

on a second thought lets not ;D
but Bashing people who live in Brooklyn would be no fun.
We only bash people who live in Lakewood.
That is more my prob in Lakewood...
Why Lakewood there are crazies everywhere?

But the prob is not as much with the kollel guys as it is with the "kollel wives" who are bored and feel guilty (or some chips on their shoulder) Jealous? and always feel hav to prove their lifestyle is better .. More "emunah and betachon"
I never heard anyone having a "My Emunah is bigger than yours" contest
Definitley not people who live the simple life and don't chase gashmius
But I guess there is a first time for everything

I would feel pretty uncomfortable if that was the conversation around my Y"T table.

statistically, in ANY community, there is trend among off-the-derech kids: the more frum the family, the further the kid goes, R"L. "The greater they are, the harder they fall", and all that.

Wow! Really off topic! Pop open the back cover of your watch with a flathead mini screwdriver. Find the numbers on the battery saying what type and search on Amazon. You can usually get like 10 batteries for $2 and then you pop it in and press the back cover back on. It's very easy.

word of warning,some upper class watches stipulate that changing the battery yourself voids the warranty (i'm not sure how they could tell, perhaps from the scratches made by your butter knife or maybe there is some sort of seal) either way my Rado is supposed to be changed by a licensed dealer.

I would feel pretty uncomfortable if that was the conversation around my Y"T table.
Oh forgot the "live the life without  gashmius " stuff.. Those are exactly the ppl I am talking about.. And I'm not saying they are all or even most like that but def seems like some are just faking it and therefore have to keep proving to themselves it's right by telling others how they are wrong to not have that "betachon" (and live with "so much gashmius") ...
Your right I don't think the real ones are out there saying these stuff.. And hope your right that it doesn't exist .. And the Lakewood voice is just writing itself for te humor involved...
