It's an Israeli thing
Not really in my neighborhood it doesn't happen
It's a specific type of community thing

Uh huh, which is why I've been experiencing it wherever I've been, in either country. It's illegal in both, btw. There are simply places where no one has the energy to enforce, and places where they do.
Fond memories of being asked by Rav Osher Kalmanowitz to go tell the fellow smoking under an awning near his shiur room window to go elsewhere. (His asthma is atrociously bad - he very nearly did not survive COVID. B"H he recovered.)

Posts that are just meant to show off secret knowledge without actually being helpful.


If you have a point to make, say it clearly. No need to talk in code.

Not a particularly good example as he clearly meant to reference הוי זהירים ברשות in that the government will not be of help.

This belongs in the "pros and cons of where you live" thread
Was just at a public event in NJ this week and was sitting next to two 11 or 12 year old boys who were vaping (indoors). Sitting with their father.

Yikes. Does vaping affect the voice like smoking does?

vaping indoors is definitely not the same thing as smoking indoors.

Often vaping involves sweet odors. Totally unbearable.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

unbearable, true. But not really the same as choking from smoke etc. (which is what was mentioned above)

Correct. But bad headaches and/or nausea as a result of those sweet odors is quite debilitating.

or Manual paper towel dispensers that have such thin paper towels, that they fall apart while trying to pull on it with wet hands.

Is that worse than empty paper towel dispensers with just a noisy hot air dryer next to it?

That take 10 minutes to dry your hands, and somehow your hands are still wet after that.

Children's albums that go through davening and have the wrong dikduk. Girsa d'yankusa is real and it's much harder to correct later on in life.


Some easy examples:


There should be a pause between chemla and rabba emunasecha
It's v'ahavtA not v'ahAvta
I thought it's v"oHAFta.  :o

Which do-gooder gets the credit for much of Klal Yisroel saying "Asher kideeshanu"? :o
P.S. That was a rhetorical question.
