DRS Senior Movie (Part 2)


This is great.

If you're wondering where Part 1 is, I didn't post it because it has nothing to do with Part 2 and 3. And it has nothing to do with DRS.

Thanks Rina.

Dinner


Tonight I decided to take things into my own hands. I decided to make dinner. I wanted hamburgers so I went to the supermarket but they were sold out of them. I finally decide to make the effort and they don't even have what I want. I settle for these little pieces of steak and cocktail hot dogs (I know they're not called hot dogs but I don't like writing the other word, unless I am talking about a family's name).

Verdict: The steaks were more like a misteak and the hot dogs were more like dogs.

Oh well, thank G-d for frozen chocolate chip cookies.

Mold


A few weeks ago I was evicted from my room because of a mold problem. To tell you the truth, I never even knew I was living with mold in my room and if no one had discovered it, I would have stayed there, even though I don’t like sharing a room. They stripped the carpet and completely emptied out my room. After a few weeks of sleeping at my grandparents and cousins’ house, I finally was able to move back in. There was no mold, but now, when the air conditioning was on in the house, the ducts above my bed would leak water to the point that there was a two-foot-wide stripe of water across my blanket. Despite the obvious benefit of knowing for certain that the air is on, deep down inside I yearn for the good mold days.

Crazy Baseball Catch!

Lets hear it for teamwork!

Present Giving: A Word to the Wise

Never give someone something electronic for a present. They will assume you know everything about it, ask you to teach them how to use it and call you anytime there is a problem. Don't they know the point of the present is so that they stop bothering you?!

I am.

That's why I came up with a two-in-one solution:

Watch:

Tachanun: The Solution


There's no question that tachanun is the "downer" moment in davenning - especially on Monday and Thursday. Many people have suggested the solution is completely taking it out of davenning. We all know that's never going to happen.
Here's my solution: move it to the beginning of davenning (with korbanos). This way, all the frum davenners can still come early and say it, and everyone else can show up on time or five minutes late. It's kind of like selichos in Elul.

Anyone who votes nisht should explain their reason in the comments.

LOL = laugh out loud

I was recently in an instant message conversation with someone, and I made a joke and they replied: I actually “LOL”ed.

That didn’t make any sense to me ( I just laugh out louded?) – is that even english? That got me thinking. The correct way for him to have responded should have been: I just “L’ed OL” (laughed out loud). However, when we look deeper, we can say his usage was correct.

First, if you think why he actually had to say “I actually “LOL”ed”. I assume the term was meant when it first became popular for people to be able to express that they were laughing out loud. However, the term became so overused, that now it is used for nothing, I feel that is why my friend had to express that he actually LOL’ed – because the real term for LOL was meant for laugh out loud – and got killed and people were using it for noting, but he really did LOL, that why he had to express it that way.

To understand this further lets look take it from a different angle and look at the root. One might say since LOL became so overused, the anagram has lost its meaning, and instead of being known as “laugh out loud”, now when you laugh out loud it is an “LOL”, therefore the used of an LOl’ed is correct.
-END-

If you haven't seen his press conference yet, you can watch it below:

How To Get Free Pizza & Ice Cream From Your Friend


Have you ever wondered how you can get free pizza and ice cream when you go out with your friends? Neither have I. But now that I know how to (I did it last night), I figured I would share it with you.

The Situation: You're at pizza and you realize you don't have any, or enough money on you; you ask your friend if you can borrow money. He says yes.

The Problem: He thinks you're poor, cheap, or stupid and knows there is little chance he is getting that money back.

The Solution: Carry around a $100 bill. When it's your turn to pay, take it out, and say to your friend, I only have a $100 bill, can you pay for me? They will gladly say yes and you don't look poor, cheap, or stupid and they figure they will obviously get paid back because you have $100. Go to Ice Cream and repeat.

This only works in a place where you are spending around $5 otherwise it would make sense to break the $100.

(Thanks E.R. for the pizza and ice cream)

Airline May Make Passengers Pay To Use Bathroom


DUBLIN (AP) - Is a bathroom an optional extra when you're at 30,000 feet? Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary seems to think so - and says his no-frills airline might charge customers to use its aircrafts' toilets.

Tropicana Switching Back!

Anyone who was as outraged as I was when I saw the new redesign (right) of the Tropicana Orange Juice carton should be thrilled to know that they are switching back to the old (and superior) design in response to consumers' complaints. I didn't even realize till I read this article, that the orange on the new carton was orange juice in a glass. And how cheesy is that twist off cap that's made to look like an orange?

Web Counter Added To A Negative Benefit

At the request of a few people (you know who you are), I have added a visible counter to the site. It can be found towards the bottom of the right-hand column.

You know what that means? It's time to tell everyone you know about aNegativeBenefit.com
All you have to do is click on that little mail icon at the bottom of this post (or any post on this site). I know it looks scary, and no one you know has ever clicked it; but take my word, you'll be fine. 

And for typing out loud, what in the world will it take to get you people to comment? It gets kind of lonely on my side. Commenting is quick, easy, anonymous (if you want), and will make you feel like a better person (unless you write something stupid and some one verbally attacks you).

Book Recommendation: Ant Farm

When I first started reading Ant Farm, I said, "It's easier reading than The Cat in The Hat with less laughs than The Diary of Anne Frank." But now that I've finished reading it, I can appreciate the absurdity of it and actually find many parts of it funny. If you've ever been called weird or have daydreamed about bizarre situations, then you will almost certainly enjoy this book. If not, make fun of Micah Epstein.

Be The Change You Want To See

One of my favorite quotes is, "be the change you want to see in the world" (or something of that nature - I could easily google it but I'd rather someone else do it and then post it in the comments).  Well anyway, today I parked on the street and needed to put a quarter in the meter. It was a muni-meter so of course I had to walk a block and a half in order to put money in the machine, only to have to walk back to my car, unlock it, place the paper inside, lock the door again, then walk past the muni-meter again to get where I needed to go. 
Well guess what? Seriously - guess...
I didn't have a quarter. I only had a dollar. That's when I decided to be the change I wanted to see in the world (I wanted to be a quarter). So there I was, trying to stick my finger in the quarter slot. It didn't work. Don't worry, my finger is recovering fine. The doctor says it should fully heal in a week. But I'm hoping it will only take a quarter of that time.
