Deep Thoughts of the Day: Starbucks, Underwear, and World Revolution

My deep thoughts of this just begining day:

  • Starbucks makes the world go 'round.
  • There are very few things I want to know less than where you buy your underwear, so don't tell me by walking around with a Victoria's Secret bag like it's a fashion statement.
  • Men who get up early to go to minyan every morning and then commute to work have my utmost respect.
  • Desk jobs aren't all they're cracked up to be.
  • If people actually were productive for the eight hours of the day that they're at work, there would be a world revolution.

And the day is just at its start. What other revelations will I have today? Tune into this blog to find out.

What about men who go to davening and then go to learn the rest of the day, do they have your utmost respect?

If people were productive all day, most of the blogs would dissapear too!

Anon, I think the point was that they could just have easily not go to daven, or daven later. Anon, what about the guys who learn all day, but get up to daven at 9, do they get your respect?

Karl, you're definitely right about the bloggers dissapearing if people actually had work to do at work!

Anon, this was not a comment on the work vs. kollel debate. I do have views on that issue, but those do not belong here. (Maybe one day I'll get around to posting on that.)

My point was just that commuting is one of the least fun things ever. And all those men who get up even earlier to go to minyan before spending an hour commuting and then eight hours a day at work deserve respect, because it is not an easy thing to do. That dedication to mitzvot should be commended.

If I may chime in...

If they treat their learning as a job i.e. show up on time do what they are there to do, and not leave before they are supposed to, yeah, then they are worthy of respect.
