Kosher ice cream truck blasting its dastardly jingle at 5000 db.  >:(
With ice cream and ices
       and very high prices
Please say a blessing
       before you start fressing
Feelings don't care about your facts

And the ice cream truck in Lakewood is taking it to the next level, he has a old school mini bus painted white and he opens the stop sign with flashing lights which is illegal

When there's a space between '?' or '!' and the last word in the sentence. e.g.:

I love ice cream !
Do you love it too ?


(Though infinitely better than leaving out the punctation altogether.)

In other languages that's how it's done (like french I believe), so I'd assume it's a common error.

When you're about to get out of the mikvah and a guy just decided to do שי טבילות right at the end of the steps, doing it so intensely that you can't even get his attention asking him to let you out.  >:(
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Belongs here.
Anyway, you create a tsunami to push the tzadik to the side and make your way out.

9/10 Jewish Press

Really? I'd rate them a 3/10 at most.

Dan's article gets a 10/10, but it went down to 9/10 when they edited it.

Or 9/10 times it's the Jewish Press that "edits" typos

Headlines (mostly in Israeli media) about a WhatsApp feature that everyone's been waiting for finally coming, only to find out that it's some useless (or worse) feature. (Like the current news item about the ability to pause while recording a voicenote) 🙄🙄🙄
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Terrible idea. A good idea would be to block and bounce all voicenotes.

If whatsapp would come close to Telegram's features and abilities that would be a news item. Until that time (or at least a match of one of them) nothing is headline worthy.
