    you are stating that all the Muslims I've met sympathise with suicide bombers.
    Look, I disagree with the person you're arguing with - the woman in the story was being a massive baby and the guy is wasting his time arguing the toss over things like structuring points - but you shouldn't lie like this. I know you later tried to weasel out of it when he called you out on it by saying he implied it but he didn't even do that.

    You've made yourself look really bad here. A dishonest person.

    Then we can assume your claim is false.....shame.
    So he doesn't want to give out his mother's details on an internet forum so you assume his claim is false? Do you have brain damage?

    It must be hard being so far off the deep end of the spectrum.
    Is this an adult My Little Pony fan making calling someone else autistic?

    To be fair I actually agree with you but I'd change your avi before making that jibe in the future

    There are other way of proving things apart from using his mother as a source, which would be a biased source and so unacceptable anyway.


    Not that you will be able to follow this reasoning

    I am very sorry, but I quite liked the idea of someone wearing his "atonement" on his head (rather immodest, I would say)

    in any case, I was also wrong about "kippah":it is not Hebrew, but Yiddish, and has the same Germanic root as "cap", "Kappe" etc

    yarmulke on the other hand is of Semitic origin : it contains the same m-l-k root that you have in Arabic "malik" (king)

    it means "respect", "reverence" : you would wear such a head covering before a king

    all the best
    It's OK - I just get a lot of semantics back from my dad sometimes and it gets on my manly breasticles.

    If yarmulke is from the m-l-k root shared with the Arabic for king, you could have given me the Hebrew, melek - I have almost enough Hebrew to get by :lol: actually I'd really love to learn it.

    But that all could be quite an interesting bit of theological word-play; if you go with my mistake that kippur is worn on the head in the form of a yarmulke, surely that means you're wearing your atonement before the king? As in being humble before God, which is the whole point, right?

    Funny anecdote: I'm a Christian, and have always had the greatest respect for Jews as the fathers of my own faith. My best friend is engaged to a girl who was brought up Jewish, and while she doesn't keep the faith any more she wanted to have the children blessed, and I was invited to the synagogue with their families. Now, I usually wear a black fedora around, and before the service started I went to take it off and put on a yarmulke, but the rabbi told me that my fedora would do; it was simply about keeping my head covered. So, I kept it on, and then a few days later my friend told me that some of the other people there had asked if I was a travelling rabbi, because of the hat and the fact that I have a beard.

    She can be naked? :eek:
    I said she can wear what she wants, did it look like I said she doesn't have to wear clothing?

    So if the patient has the right to have a personal preference for a doctor, the woman in the OP was in her right?
    Generally, a patient can refuse treatment whenever they want unless they are sectioned.

    The Woman can ask for another Doctor for any stupid reason she has. She can say, I don't like non whites people and ask for a white Doctor.

    The only job of the Doctor is to refer her on to an appropriate Doctor so she can receive Medical treatment.

    You seem to live in a different world to the rest of us.

    This happened in Ireland.

    Yes, so many Asian parents don't allow their children to marry outside their race.

    yes, interesting idea (although "atonement" would be specifically reserved for God, I would say)

    Yes, Jews wear some of the strangest, most diverse head-coverings

    e.g. this is a a shtreimel (Yiddish: שטרײַמל, pl. שטרײַמלעך shtreimlech), a fur hat worn by many married haredi Jewish men Name:  Shtreimel.jpg

    who knows ? perhaps a well deserved reputation...
    I have to admit that I am quite generous with my favourite Attachment 497713 have one,please

    however, there is an issue here : when people speak of covering, there is always a great confusion : hijab, headscarf, khimaar, niqab, tchador, jilbab, burkah are used by some as almost synonymous, leading to total confusionI am very sorry, but I quite liked the idea of someone wearing his "atonement" on his head (rather immodest, I would say)

    in any case, I was also wrong about "kippah":it is not Hebrew, but Yiddish, and has the same Germanic root as "cap", "Kappe" etc

    it means "respect", "reverence" : you would wear such a head covering before a king

    all the best
    כיפה(kippah) is a pure Hebrew word Yamulke is a Yiddish word
