LMS - Last Man Standing.. Not FMS (First Man Standing) - This game is for night time only, not morning, afternoon, or evening.. NIGHT TIME ONLY!!

At night while most of the world is sleeping there are some members which are looking to socialize since they have no one else to speak to; they play a really exciting and fun game which basically every couple minutes you write a comment, the comments range from standing to sleeping, from young grasshoppers to old grasshoppers. it usually begins around 1:00 am EDT

RULES OF THE GAME:

1) Game starts at 1am Eastern, 12am Central, 11pm mountain, 10pm pacific... You get the point.
2) Anyone can call a roll call, just make a reply with "Roll Call". The roll call must be readable to the naked eye.
3) No more than one roll call every thirty minutes.
4) You have 30 minutes to respond to the roll call to stay active.
5) To respond to a roll call just post a reply with "Here" or "y y y"
6) If after one hour there are no more "Roll Calls" or "Heres", then the last person to post correctly either by calling a roll call or with a reply of "here" is declared winner of LMS.
7)You must have been awake for at least 12 hours before making or answering a RC.



OR IN SHORT:

When someone calls for a roll call. No more than one every 30 minutes and you have 30 minutes to respond "Here".

If a had a Rabbi this one would be high on my list.

Rav Moshe Feinstein: Sitting next to women on buses
Igros Moshe (E.H. 2:14): Nevertheless concerning other women even if they are married and nida and non-Jews – everyone agrees that there is no prohibition to come into contact with them since it is not done in a sexual arousing manner (derech chiba). Therefore there is no reason to be concerned about contact with women. Consequently there is no need to refrain from traveling on subways and buses to go to work when they are very crowded and it is not possible to avoid contact with women. That is because contact without intent for pleasure that results from the inevitable crowding and pushing is not done in a licentious manner (derech chiba)…. Similarly there is no prohibition for this reason to sit next to a woman when there is no other place available. That is because this is also not done for the sake of pleasure (derech chiba)…. However if it is known that this will bring about lustful thoughts then he should refrain from traveling in these circumstances if it isn’t necessary. But if he needs to travel on the buses and subways because of his work then it would be permitted even if it brings about lustful thoughts. He needs to fight against these thoughts by distracting himself and thinking about words of Torah as the Rambam (Issurei Bi’ah 21:19) advises. He can rely on this to allow him travel to work.  However if he knows that he has a lustful nature and these circumstances will cause him to be sexual aroused – then it is prohibited even if he needs to travel on the buses and subways for his job. But G-d forbid that a person should be that way. This is a result of idleness as it states in Kesubos (49) concerning a woman but it applies also to a man. Consequently he needs to be involved in Torah study and work and not be that way.

You answer one shaalah about the Kosher Switch, and now you wanna be a posek? don't let it get to your head. Start with the basics, like can I use maaser funds for my BOGO tuition payments? If I lend someone money by letting them swipe on my credit card, and they pay me back plus I get C*SH B**K, is that ribis? One you've got that down, wade into mixed airplane seating questions.

If you're picking a rabbi pick Rabbi Moskowitz. His thinking is more in line with yours.

I don't want someone that thinks like me. I want a common sense shoot from the hip thinker.

Then I guess you would not like Rabbi Feinstien after all. He was definitely not "shoot from the hip".

The common sense part is good enough for me. Don't take shoot from the hip as a bad thing.

Would any of these describe him?
an expression which suggests the described person
a. speaks or behaves in a brusque, honest fashion
b. does not censor their actions or words

Every word or action of his was measured. Not censored. Calculated, concise, clear. Never brusque. Always straightforward and honest. 
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

If you want brusque, there are great rabbis who were known for their sharp style.

I wouldn't be surprised if Lochte's people paid for those guys to protest last night at DWTS . Would have been a smart move.

I noticed that the cheapest RT flight in J from Europe to NYC with UA is Belfast-NYC at $1,436. Maybe this is why.
