TIL - Today I Learned

TIL that the commander of Israelís navy from 2007 to 2011 was half-Chinese (dw, he was apparently Halachically Jewish), he was even nicknamed Chayni for his Chinese appearance.

I always knew there was a FIL and a MIL and some BILs and SILs, and some people had SILs and DILs. Today I learned that there is also a TIL.

When I posted the topic it was inevitable that DDF would take it this direction.

That the reason animals and inanimate creations do not literally express shira is because they do not have free will. Angels technically have free will (though disobeying is suicide because they only exist as Hashem's command), and therefore, their shira is literal.

That uncluttered halacha threads can become cluttered very fast and that for every cluttered halacha thread an uncluttered one would be opened 🔄
Jews ≠ Zionists
Palestinians ≠ Hamas
Satmar ≠ SatmarHQ

TIL that KSA has a Rabbi (apparently since 2021), he calls himself the Chief Rabbi of the KSA.

Needed a torch and a lift that I didn't have. Brought it to my buddies and five minutes later, BOOM!  :)

And here I thought you were talking about those things you put on your finger to measure blood oxygen levels. I was trying to figure out what was going on :)

I have/want to change a glow plug. My mechanic says I shouldn't attempt because if it is breaks it will fall into the engine. Still debating

You need to be careful. Plenty of YouTube videos with tips.
