Topic Wiki

Bogo walks in a room and announces that we're almost at the end, so double your money now* before it's too late! He claims there are people vouching for him, but they have never heard of him.
ExGingi talked to Bogo for a minute and let's everyone know that he knows what he's doing. Except maybe that was for another Bogo thing he's doing that may or may not MLM related. Or something like that.
Baruch won't stop calling Bogo a liar and ExGingi a fool and a liar. He's gone over to everyone and tells them this at least dozen times.
Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. It's parve, exactly how ExGingi likes it. JJ didn't tell Freddie he was in the room as he doesn't like parve cholent or MLMs. This makes him a shvantz.
Dan is waiting for a juicy voicemail or at least an email to put in this thread. Dan loves Lakewood and was very impressed with it. Dan hates Lakewood and bashes at every opportunity {{Citation needed}}

JJ finally did teshuva. It remains to be seen if others mentioned on this thread will follow his lead.

*as long as you're from Lakewood.

If he gets Shishi he has more time to scam people. If he gets shlishi people will start asking why he got shlishi

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I'm sorry, I didn't follow this thread. Can someone just please tell me if this is basically correct?

A guy promised everybody that any money they give him over a certain 24 period will pay off 100% interest by the end of the current school year. People then realized that this was far-fetched and the whole thing fizzled. Now we are debating whether the guy was well meaning or stam a crook.

Is that basically it?

close enough
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

And he didn't tell me? In that case you can let him know he's a shvantz.

That is the secondary discussion in this thread. The primary issue is apparently whether a certain DDF'er is or is not a fool.

Does being called a shvantz by @Freddie make me like instant gezhe? It's like all my years of yeshiva finally paid of. Or like being knighted by the Queen li'havdil.

Meh. We need to hear some serious utterances pronounced by you before you can even be considered.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
