Hey!
Any like minded people out there here with similar issues?
Would love to form a group to discuss how we personally can cope with this disease.
As our values are obviously different than others, what can we do to sleigh the beast?
FB, Twitter, Instagram, skype, Text, Yahoo or Whatsapp me for details.

my handle: AASFFBLGYB

Take care!

Hi Cordnoy,

May I ask what LGYB stands for?

Thanks!

Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, "Don't do it!"
He said, "Nobody loves me."
I said, "God loves you. Do you believe in God?"
He said, "Yes."
I said, "Are you a Christian or a Jew?"
He said, "A Christian."
I said, "Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?"
He said, "Protestant."
I said, "Me, too! What franchise?"
He said, "Baptist."
I said, "Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?"
He said, "Northern Baptist."
I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?"
He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist."
I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region."
I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?"
He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912."
I said, "Die, heretic!" And I pushed him over.

Ok, so... I'm not quite sure if this thread belongs in the blocked kabbalah board, or if I'm just not getting it. I'm inclined to believe the latter. I do have a few questions though.
1)Serenity, Why were you posting in the middle of the call. Maybe those clicking noises were from the typing
2)If Serenity doesn't know what it stands for, then he's not part of the group either, then who is?
3)Yudi, what did you get when you wrote "got it"
4) What does the "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912 or 1879, have to do with this group? (besides for it being from the heiliger Guard from 2010! )
and 5)WHAT DO ALL OF THE LETTERS STAND FOR - DON'T ANSWER
Observation: Cordnoy wrote a number of confusing letters, and didn't explain when asked.
Conclusion: Knowing what the letters stand for, is not a requirement to be part of the group, However, not forcing Cordnoy to explain, is a requirement.
Summary: I have no idea what I am talking about, and am more confused then when I started writing.

I think 12:57 is before the call. During Dov's call.

The beeping was not me, but the clicking probably was. I keep my phone on mute, but noticed it wasn't on mute.
Much Hatzlacha!

Cordnoy,
If you are undersubscribed would you consider opening up your group to a slightly wider audience? Say, to African American FFBs who are not Slonim?
