Top Reasons To Go OTD
« Reply #510 on: April 08, 2015, 12:02:03 PM »
As opposed to the previous 500 posts - those are all valid causes to go OTD?

I think most people mistake this for the "Pet Peeve" thread.

+1 was thinking the same thing, most of the "religious" things are just the things in Judaism that are underappreciated generally from a lack of knowledge and understanding of what it really is...I think shalus seudus is the perfect example.

All the rules and regulations. This isn't the IRS.

Seeing those lines by the pizza shop one hour after pesach

In a way, this is very profound.

If you think about it, why do Frummies clamor for pizza right after Pesach? Doesn't it make a statement that says something like "We were severely deprived of proper food, and now we are pushing and shoving to get some"?

yes, to show that we were abstaining for mitzvah reasons, not taste. Different than standing in line pushing for pizza.

I think it has so much more to do with the fact that you're told you can't have it, as the line goes, "If I can't then I must"... I go weeks without Pizza but obviously I crave it so much more this week

If that is what has the ability to push you off the edge then you need to do some serious soul searching
it's the scene of wild reckless guys going straight down dressed like...

The only point it makes is that people feel that Pesach has deprived them of normal food. The Yomtov which we proclaim as "Zman Cheiruseinu" makes some Yidden feel exactly the opposite.

Also, more Chumros = less Cheirus.

Dressed like what? Are you talking about the disco looking dudes with the gel in their hair? Or the guys with shmoina begoodim? Which type is it that bothers you to see pushing for pizza?

That's how you look at it, the Berditchever might have seen the same scene and said look how these people are ready to kill for a slice of pizza yet they abstained for 8 days straight...
