to all gulf airline lovers:
why are we supporting(even through miles) an unruly band who undeniably employ their workers in slave-like conditions?
Are we blind that the only airlines that have top notch service are those from countries where human rights is non-exisitent?
I don't understand why it feels good to get pampered by a person that is not getting fair pay!!!!

???
do you buy anything made in china? they treat their citizen slaves a lot worse than any other country... many countries treat their workers terrible... and maybe your right that its not so nice to support them but we don't have to make our lives crazy to care about some unknown people in far off lands...

We can always care. It just comes down to how inconvenienced we're willing to be. Which is what @Moshe Green is asking. Why is this the OP's line?

It's usually sad music, trying to stir emotion in the spirit of the day.

Kaddish -

Why do some people say kaddish at every opportunity with some inventing even more times (R' Chananya be Hakasha Omer...)

Why do some only say it if no one else is?

Why do some only say it exclusively when they have yartzeit?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Kaddish is supposed to be said at the end of davening. If no one is a chiyuv someone who is able to say it should say it. If someone else is saying it there is no reason to say it unless one has a chiyuv - like a yartzeit.

Someone argues? Iím unaware of a dissenting opinion on this, but by all means show me.

Anyone know how to get google maps directions (text only) to fill the full width of the page instead of just half when printing? It would save so much paper.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

highlight, copy, paste as plain text?
edit: I see it doesn't work.  The complete directions is only available after you press print, and then it won't highlight, etc.
But most of the directions are only half a line any way.
maybe print on both sides?

1. Use the snipping tool to get an image of directions and paste into Word doc. Change layout to text wrap, so you can move the images around on the page.  Depending on how far you're going, this might take more time than the actual travel.
2. Print half the directions. Turn papers around and reinsert into printer in the proper direction and print the second half of the directions on the other side of the page, in the other direction.  Might work better in landscape.  Getting the papers in correctly could be a fun challenge.  Or a nightmare.

Yep, same issue when I tried. printing on both sides saves paper but it's still more to flip through in the car.
