Legal size documents. One of the most annoying features common only to the USA IINM.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I use them for my kids all the time. Not these, because they're annoyingly shaped. Wal-Mart sells square snack bags.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

The same person that invented "select-a-size" paper towels
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

did you give them slack for this tweet?


The expression is to cut someone slack and it means precisely the opposite of how frum people tend to use it. Cutting slack means to be a little easier on someone, like imagine they were being tied by a rope you were holding and you gave a little rope to loosen it, not tighten it.

Sometimes, people confuse flak with slack.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Like whoring, and turning every other thread into a discussion about likes. I'm sick of it.

(I've wanted to post this a million times but always hesitated as it could be seen as an attack on a particular DDFer. So for the record, I am absolutely NOT referring to @YitzyS here. This applies to many, many DDFers and to the "like culture" in general.)
