1. For the same reason the "satirical article" was written as a response to the assertion that Darwin was a Jew.
Once again, was the assertion about Darwin being a Jew satirical?
No, it was stupid.

There are huge anti-Semitic currents in Turkey now due to the Islamists. If you bothered to even read about the context of the issue, you would of also read how quickly the better educated secular educational establishment yanked this garbage curriculum out once noticed.

2. It is not my manner to try and save face.
3. Anyone equipped with very basic understanding would realize that I had something in mind with my questions. There is even hints of it in my original words. Study them as they are once again provided for you.
Note, you cannot get away from the fact that an ASSERTION was made that Darwin was a Jew.
Both you and Frijoles have FAILED to tell me if there are Jewish sources that speak to the Judaic background of Darwin. WHY?
STUDY what follows and when you understand it you shall realize that there is no need for me to try and save face.
The following is the start of Darwin posts and it reflects my focus.
Hi boys meaning COR, Ricky, Frijoles, Eric etc, I read where someone said that the top-three historical Jewish figures were; Abraham, Moses and Darwin.
Were you boys taught that as well?
Do you disagree with the listing?
Who would you replace on the list and why?
1. You can stop with the BS now. If your intention was to draw us to the fact that an intentional (non-satirical) assertion was made regarding Darwin having Jewish roots, then it would have been in your best interest to put forward a citation for that assertion that was valid, and not satirical. You failed to do that.

2. There are two reason why I did not answer the question. The first is that it was quite obvious to me that the article you presented was satirical and it was also comically obvious to me that you were clueless as to the nature of the article. Therefore, as far as I was concerned, your question was irrelevant. Secondly, as this is really important so pay attention, I'm not Jewish, and I DON"T CARE if Darwin was Jewish or not. Why in the world would you even direct such a question to me?

So, in summary, you f'd up but are too proud to admit it. But I thank you for the two days of laughter. It's been fun watching you squirm out of this one.

Were you aware that this hotel was in the news last month for bed bugs?

Hey impoverished Mon,

What do you know about luxury hotels or about the high life?

Nothing, at all. LOL.

I have great memories of The Pierre in New York and never faced any problems during my stay there.

Luxury hotels face some problems at times and once brought to their notice they take quick action with the same problem usually never recurring.

Even when you fly first class on classy airlines like Thai Airways Silk Class, Singapore Airways or Emirates, one faces problems from bugs, food poisoning, theft of valuables like jewelry costing $ 1 million or more, soiled linen, defective hardware and so on.

Bed bugs in The Pierre? Could be that some guest brought the bugs with him on his clothes or in his belongings and this is how the hotel room(s) got affected. This is a distinct possibility.

What about 5 star hotels or global best stand-alone-restaurants serving contaminated food that makes clients ill?

Here's 1 recent example:

WORLD'S BEST RESTAURANT NOMA GIVES 70 CUSTOMERS FOOD POISONING:

At the restaurant voted the world's best three years in a row, where the cheapest option is the £174 set menu, customers would be forgiven for thinking that their food would not only be perfectly prepared but safe to eat...

Not so at globally-renowned Danish restaurant Noma, where 67 of the 78 guests who dined there between Feb 12 and 16 fell ill with food poisoning.

Noma, which last year won its third S. Pellegrino award for World's Best Restaurant, is renowned for using unusual, locally sourced ingredients such as reindeer moss, unripe plums and live shrimp.

The restaurant, which has two Michelin stars and is credited with sparking a global interest in Nordic food, said they were still trying to track the source of the infection.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/99186...

So, think before posting and don't post on those high class topics concerning style or 5 star hotels or on science and on math of which you have zero first hand experience/poor understanding.

Now, run along to Shoney's. That's more your style and well suited to your pauperistic budget.

LMAO.

I wish them luck on the bed bugs.

Bed bug "infestations" (I LOVE that word) cut across all social classes. They are difficult to eradicate. I doubt the hotel will have any better success than any other place in NY.

I am just amazed you didnt know about this. It has been in all the papers.

HUGH,

When are you going to "manhandle" me - for just 5 minutes?

Have you arranged for the cash to book us into the best suite in The Pierre? Or, do you prefer a sea-facing suite in that 5 star hotel in Aruba that you mentioned some years ago?

Will we fly cattle class or first class to our honeymoon destination, darling?

I'm all yours, sweetheart.

Tight, tight, tight - I'm trying to loosen up.

Hugh,

I've fallen head over heels in love with you.

I only hope you can afford me considering my expensive tastes.

I'm flushed thinking about our honeymoon.

Will you wear a face veil, a bra and tights, dear, at our wedding?

The Jewish actress in western dress in the soothing/melodious Hindi film song of the early '80s is Bindiya - screen name, Esther - real name. She and her sister, Pearl, were born in India. Their Jewish ancestors migrated to India from the ME centuries ago.

No Indians is not correct, Muslims once they leave religion, go out of Islamic brotherhood, not Hindus.
