I can't remember the last time I saw an ad online. Do people not use adblock?
+1. can't imagine going back to flashing ads all over, youtube ads that waste your life, and slow page loads.

Adblock blocks some info I need.

You can always left-click and temporarily pause it.

Or in Chrome browse incognito and not enable the extension in incognito (the default).

Adblock removes YouTube ads?

Any reason to be concerned about taking MCO to EWR on Friday leaving at 1:25 . The flight is delayed "50% of the time"?

Sometimes the answer you don't get tells you more than the answer you do get.

Do CCs intentionally not update your balance due when paying only part of the statement balance? Easy way for them to get interest without you noticing anything wrong.

What time are you supposed to land? Could you stay in MCO if your flight was delayed? Seems to close for comfort.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Flight/Equip.: Jetblue Airways Corp 928 Airbus A320
Depart: Orlando(MCO) Friday, Aug 22 13:25
Arrive: Newark(EWR) Friday, Aug 22 16:13
Stops: non-stop; Miles: 940
Shakeia is at 7:45 and im 30 min from ewr, but I will have checked bag.


-Yes, worse case scenario I could get a hotel near chabad in MCO, but that would be bad... Say it's delayed, whats the latest time that I can safely board?

To cut it really close, 7:45 - 30 min travel and 15 min fudge time = 7:00 landing or earlier. 3:40 for the flight = 3:20pm  + fudge time = 3:00 take off at latest.
Scheduled takeoff 13:25 (1:25pm)  That gives you up to 1:30 hrs for delays.
You can always leave the airport without your bag and get it from the lost baggage area after Shabbos.


On the other hand, such tight timing may be disrespectful to Shabbos (If you had an important meeting or your son's engagement party - would you time it so closely?) and Chinuch is in what you DO not what you say.

Is it more respectful to stay alone in a hotel?
