Whoever decided to change the clocks less than a week before a tanis, is definitely an Anti Semite!
ah I thought about it the other way- we have 1 more hr of daylight on Purim  :)
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Here's one story.

This had started hours earlier in the day when one a teen was harassing me when I was in the library and threw a penny toward me while telling his friend "I heard if you throw a penny in the for, they'll pick it up!" After I didn't pick it up, this bright guy picked it up himself.

Later that night, I went to a movie and after the movie, on my way out, there was a group of teens that included the genius that picked up the penny earlier that day. Her recognized me and they surrounded me and started shoving me around in front of the theater. A woman came out of the theater and yelled at them to stop or she'd call the police. They stopped, and then begged me not to call the cops. I told them not to worry and then I saw a bus across the street. The bus stop was two blocks away so I started running for the bus. One of the teens started chasing me. I pulled out a bottle of pepper spray and shot it blindly behind me and nailed the loser. Good times lol.

I was about 10 years old when a bunch of black teens came up to our schoolyard fence and shouted that theyíre Nazis and will f*** us up.
Oh, the irony! Were they Jewish too?

Was at Olympic Stadium in Montreal about 30 years ago for a Montreal Machine indoor football game. When we got off the Metro at the stadium we realized that a group of people were throwing pennies at us. We just ignored it and they just looked like fools.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Just heard a beautiful vort last night from Rav Moshe Ahron Friedman, maggid shiur in the Mir.

The halacha is that by עולת העוף - a bird Olah, you can split the head off completely. But by a bird Chattas, it says "Lo Yavdil" - you are not allowed to completely separate the head. Rav Moshe Ahron Friedman said that it's reminiscent of how the nations view Yidden. When one person does a Chattas - something wrong - they are not mavdil, but they see it as all Jews are guilty. But when one person does something Olah, uplifting, then they separate it and see it as the act of a lone individual.

Why the need for the last 2 paragraphs? Just useless misdirection. Par for the course for social media I guess

not the way I would have understood it, I would think it means Toronto is full of graffiti, not necessarily anti semitic.

That is presumably what it means, and that does sound like the intended (presumably incorrect) interpretation - hence Euclid's comment.
