2020 wasn't a completely waste.

At least we lowered heart disease deaths, pneumonia deaths, and completely eradicated the flu. - 2020 has been a year of medical miracles.

A young woman visits her parents and brings her fiancé to meet them. After an elaborate dinner, the mother tells her husband to find out about the young man.The father invites the fiancée to his library for a drink. So what are your plans? The father asks the young man. I am a Torah scholar. He says. A Torah scholar, Hmmm, the father says. Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughterto live in, as she is accustomed to? I will study, the young man said, and God will provide for us.And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves? asks the father. I will concentrate on my studies, the young man replies, God will provide for us.And children? asks the father. How will you support children? Dont worry, sir, God will provide, replies the fiancé.The conversation continues like this, and each time the father questions, the young idealist insist that God will provide.Later, the mother asks, How did it go, Honey?The father answers, He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I'm God.

keep on reading!
when i first found this thread and was also laughing my head off ,if a thought of lust entered my head i pushed it out without any effort since i was in such a "high" from the jokes, i realized then that i probably fall due to escaping feelings of sadness ,thats when i realized that if i can labor to gain a happy mind with accomplishing good things (like the good old days) it might be a cure to my lusting, and you know what, on days that my mood is good and  happy and i feel accomplished ,i have a hope to saying no to the lust. 
Rabbi Neuberger Shlita in his great  artscroll  english sefer ,Positive vision ,writes something to that effect that when we are sad we tend to look for forbidden pleasures as an escape.and that explained something written in Chasidishe seforim which i never understood , that when one is biatzvus, that strengthens the forces of impurity on onesself  ,and i thought it was always a "kabala"ist   idea which one cant understand , but thats how it is  but after reading Positive Vision , i realized that its just a natural human instinct for a person to run to impurity thinking that this will save himself from the depressing thoughts,and sometimes it does dispel the thoughts of sadness, but Oy !the hangover afterwards...

LATEST NEWS. This ain’t fake...

State Employee Charged After Complaining About Herself

Thursday, February 18, 2021
WEST LEYDEN, N.Y. (AP) -
An employee for a New York state agency is accused of filing an anonymous abuse complaint against herself in order to collect paid leave.

Heather Race, of West Leyden in central New York, was charged with third-degree grand larceny and two other charges related to falsification, the state police said on Wednesday.

She allegedly received eight weeks of pay, or around $6,900, on administrative leave while the abuse complaints she filed against herself were investigated.

A message seeking comment was left at a phone number listed for Race.

Race, 40, worked for the state’s Office for People with Developmental Disabilities. She was arraigned in a Lewis County court and released, the police said.
