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".

So contact them?
I have a private administrator who I doubt has the technical prowess to fix it. He can lower and raise the level of protection, but this is beyond his pay grade.

So my filter just decided to no longer let tapatalk work.
I had it put to a higher level because it was able to access to many forums.

(Maybe this should be saved for the Friday PC question of the day):

A Day is based on the rotation of the earth
A Month is based on the orbit of the moon
A Year* is based on the orbit of the earth around the sun.

While the Torah defines the construct of a Week - is there any celestial cycle underpinning the concept of a week? IOW - aside from the torah laying out the week of creation and defining shabbos, is there any reason to explain the concept of a week?

Short answer is not really. And in fact, there were other length weeks in various cultures - including famously the Soviets in modern times.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Week#%22Weeks%22_in_other_calendars

In the history section of that wiki page there are some theories brought, but none really provide a 'celestial underpinning'.

a week is actually the one thing that no religion has ever disputed for some odd reason.
like why aren't places on earth where they have 8 day weeks?...
I think it says something. that the בריאה is undeniable.

Except that multiple different cultures and religions throughout history have had a non-7 day week...

Whilst not really answering your question, it is mentioned in Jewish texts about 7 מזלות which each are dominant for an hour and every 7 hours they restart from #1.
That leads to מזל מאדים always being dominant on Fridays between 6-7 (and between 11am and 12 on Friday and between 1-2am on Saturday)

I don't know if these מזלות are connected to anything physical.

Some places might have gotten a few inches of snow this past week. In Brooklyn all we got was a half an inch of salt.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
