Brooklyn Hasidic jews: "Paint over the bike lanes, the girls are too hot"

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

My bad. Just wikied it.

I used to work at a porn store and this young hasidic guy came in every day for a week and looked at boxes for an hour or so, until the guy I worked with told him to buy something or get out. He was also the guy who told me about the sheet.

No worries. Lots of non-orthodox Jews believe this one too.

We do kill christian babies and use their blood to make our matzoh though, so they're not all just rumors.*

You can't. It is a racial religion. Unless you have the Jewish blood, you have to content yourself with Reform Judaism (JewLite).

This I know...

I do have some from a paternal great, great aunt or some such from Poznan in Poland... I wonder if that would work.

I'm interested in the sex and sideburns, the white sheet with a hole sounds kinky. Would that be a glory sheet? And then there's the white shirt and black slacks retro look topped off with a nice lid, and the BC's for the vision impaired.

Cool, I'm in if you Jews will have me!

Ugh, I know that area well, have had some issues. The attitude and arguments remind me of the 8th Ave lane Chelsea fought against.

That said let's keep it respectful and on biking - unless you'd want me to move it over to P&R to discuss the intricacies of Hasidic Judaism...

Am I the only one that remembers Upright Citizen's Brigade?

Anyhoo, seems like removing bike lanes is a bad way to try and get rid of cyclists. I imagine the standard reaction to be, "Oh hey, is the white divider line gone? Huh, drag."

This isn't a new issue, the bike lane aspect is though.
My fathers family were all from Williamsburg, and my Uncle drove a cab back in the 50's.
He used to get spit on for driving on Saturday (sabbath).

Hassidism is a very closed sect, but not impenetrable I do know of some folks who
'converted' into it.

Then they must have converted into a sect of poseur-Hassids. No self-respecting Hassid would associate with someone of impure blood. If you accidently touch one of them they have to immediately go home and take a ritual bath.

In my experience, a lot of Orthodoxy/Hasidim look down on us for not being as Jewish. My cousin and her husband are, and every thanksgiving we have to walk on eggshells because G-d forbid we do something not Jewish enough in front of them. Its not all of them...

One of my favourite blogs, BN, has a lot to say about these guys. If I remember correctly (I couldn't find the corresponding posts), he ran into some legal threats about his thoughts about the hasidic community. Here's a really funny blog about a hasid and his visit to the HR department: http://www.blog******.com/2008/08/go...atzaballs.html

Let's hope I don't get banninated for posting that.

And to bring it back to topic, I propose WIDER bike lines and MORE scantily clad women on bicycles distracting me.

EDIT: URL is not working because there's a questionable word in it. To view, replace the stars with an n-bomb and you're good to go.
