The above two posts are Yelp reviews about China Eastern Airlines. I flew with them before. Stay away.

The next part was insane. 
And the part of the story before that wasn't insane? ::)
Thanks for sharing.

Anyone else have the feeling how silly it is to be at work and in chu"l in light of everything going on in the holy Land?

I was actually discussing this with my wife on the way to work today, and we agreed that we don't necessarily think so. Sure, we think living in Israel would be nice one day but in terms of what's going on, we feel much more strongly that Moshiach will come because people are good people - wherever they live - and not because Jews move to Israel. Just our opinion, obviously others are entitled to their own.

If it was explicitly clear, I think we would see more Rabbonim in US living in Israel.

there are a few more sparks that still need to be elevated in ch"l. We're almost done. Then Moshiach will come and we'll all be together, celebrating in EY.

Depends who's Minyan Hamitzvos you follow (the Rambam for example does NOT consider it a Mitzvah while the Ramban famously does).

I got 2 $5 credits on one of my Amex cards from "AMERICAN EXPRESS COMNEW YORK", in the additional information it says this "Additional Information: SSAugustOffer" I have no clue what it is. At first I thought it was a special offer I forgot about (although those typically show up as a credit from the merchant) so I looked under my redeemed offer and saw between all the regular offers 2 $5 credits under "Offer Credit".

Anyone have a clue what this is?

There was a 'shop small NY'.  But that was for $10 credits, I think.
