I have excellent math skills
aha ha!

Here are 3 extremely easy problems in Math (Grade 8 level).

A businessman claiming to be "excellent" in Math and who does his own accounting should find the following Math questions real easy.

1) CP = Cost Price, SP = Selling Price

If the CP of 10 pens = SP of 12 pens, is a profit or a loss made in the transaction? Calculate the percent profit or percent loss.

(show all the working steps)

2) Find the sum of the series to n terms

243 + 324 + 432 +.......n

3) A dealer offers a scheme - he sells one chocolate for $ 1 and says that for every empty wrapper returned a free chocolate would be given. A boy has $ 15 with him. How many chocolates can he have in all if he participates in the above scheme?

(show all the working steps)

4) If the amount made in the 3rd year on an investment is $ 8 millions and if the amount made the following year is $ 8.5 millions, find the interest in $ if the rate of interest is 10% pa, interest being compounded annually.

Hughbe, you dont know sht about Israeli politics or culture. And you know even less about world Jewish politics and culture.
Shas is a POLITICAL party. The Rabbi was a chied POLITICIAN. Get it?
Sure, he had influence. Over his party, his followers, and his sympathizers. Who are in Israel.
Ask any Jew outside of Israel if they follow Shas, and virtually 99% percent of them will look at you like you are crazy and say no.
I am not sure how many times I have to state this. COR and Eric already stated it in their own ways.
Stop being dense.
Frijoles---Hughbe, you dont know sht about Israeli politics or culture. And you know even less about world Jewish politics and culture.

HughBe--- What is clear to me is that YOU don't know about English comprehension.

Now get someone with sense to explain the extract below.

"He is considered by his followers – directly, ultra-Orthodox Sephardic public, and indirectly, the wider religious society – as a master sage, or Maran, and the generation’s GREATEST authority on religious law. Hence, his health is no laughing matter."

My summary of the quote above---Yosef is considered by his followers and the wider religious society – as a MASTER sage, or Maran, and the generation’s GREATEST authority on religious law. Hence, his health is no laughing matter.

It is of NATIONAL interest as well as interest in the US and elsewhere.

I'm wrong most of the time according to my wife, except when I eliminated her gall stone, the dr put her on morphine for shiats sake.
the liver is an amazing organ.
No, not for shts sake, the doc put her on morphine for pain control. If she did not have pain, she should of declined the morphine. Pretty simple, really.

What wider society? We already defined the limits of his following. Israeli, sephardic, and religious. Pretty small, considering.

I'll tell you where YOU have failed, Hugh.
You refer to a FIVE-term Republican United States Senator who was also a founding member of the "Moral Majority" as a "Christian nobody", yet you quiver at the thought of a "Sephardi CHIEF Rabbi of ISRAEL" saying something you find unpleasant.
YOU have NOT quantified why Yosef has a span of influence greater than Jesse Helms when Jesse Helms and his supporters CLEARLY had more followers.
And what of the other influential evangelicals I posted about? Jerry Fallwell? Pat Robertson? Are they all nobodys too with little influence?
Why the obsession with Yosef, but complete ignorance and silence with Jesse Helms and the other evangelicals? Your anti-semitic bias shines through as usual.
1. Nobody can get me to quiver i.e. outside of a threat to my life.

2. Is your Christian Senator regarded as the GREATEST sage even by his congregants?

3. He is a nobody when compared to Yosef who CHANGED the religious and political life in Israel. Has your Christian Senator CHANGED the religious and political life in the US?

4. The obsession with Yosef is yours. History shows that I have used others in support of my point. YOU have chosen to focus on Yosef and have sought to DIMINISH his significance in Israel and Judaism. Shame on you, COR.

5. When I called your Christian man a nobody was I being anti-Christian?

6. What is it that I have said about Yosef that makes me anti-semitic? Memory tells me that what I have done was to quote him and in your mind that makes me anti-semitic. That BS will not work with me.

What if I had called Yosef a NOBODY as I did your Christian Senator man, what would you have called me?

7. I find that you have used the word anti-semitic in a TOTALLY DISHONEST and in my mind a CRIMINAL way.

Please ANSWER all questions above.

Ok, what's your IQ?
Is your IQ 52?
Or, what is it?
I'd like to co-relate your IQ score with your observed intelligence.
I am waiting for your reply.
It is 52 plus 52 plus ?= better than most on EARTH.

I'm gonna take you to task where intelligence is concerned.
You're as unintelligent as your American opponents.
Anyway, peace.
Meditate upon my words and ask yourself things like-- what should I expect from semi-literate persons in terms of expressions etc.

Keep in mind that they have the IQ of a genius.

Nothing anti-semitic about that, I didn't classify all jews.
Just you and your ugly pig nose wife.
Volintarist---You are a vile disgusting human being, who happens to be Jewish, that makes you a filthy jew.

HughBe--- In other words, being "a vile disgusting human being" is not a characteristic that is limited to some people of ALL other RACES.

Put it this way, in EVERY race there are " vile disgusting human being(s)". You are CORRECT.

I would like to add a few words about HUGH.
See, on this thread, Hugh cannot get away with his rabid church evangelism since the non-Christian and atheist posters here are way too sophisticated to buy into his cock and bull stories and so he's constantly rebuffed and often ridiculed. Of course, the cult beliefs of his opponents too are rubbish.
Hugh knows that no one is impressed with his Christian rhetoric and so he's quiet but had he seen an opening to proselytize and convert someone to Christianity I am certain he'd have shown his fire-brand form with the typical harping on sin and being saved through Jesus and swearing in the name of the Lord G-d of Avraham and so on.
Besides, he's known to consider himself "morally" superior to others and has forcefully expressed himself on this issue on several occasions.
Funnily, on a few occasions, Hugh said he is "intellectually" superior to the posters, here. ROFL.
He's also got a streak of jealousy in him - when he knows he's outclassed materially and intellectually, he casts aspersions on the opponent.
I am not disputing the fact that Hugh is a nice man in a limited sort of way but at the same time he's fanatical and irrational and competitive and jealous.
Besides, Hugh's vibes reveal he's a sex pervert - I gagged on a few occasions when the sex perversion vibes in him were prominent. It was a most disgusting smell accompanied by a nauseous feeling.
Hugh accuses others of being homosexual but his style and force fields show he himself is homosexual and a few years ago a certain post of his revealed that he visits public washrooms to peek at exposed penises and I guess to pick up young boys for sex.
Hugh is sexually attracted to a certain gay American poster on this forum who has rejected his online advances but still Hugh persists in a sort of subconscious way.
I have nothing against homosexuality and welcome everyone who is objective and a seeker of the truth.
Of course, Hugh's not intentionally rude and unlike many others he holds no grudges, forgives easily and wishes people well.
Joel--Hugh is sexually attracted to a certain gay American poster on this forum who has rejected his online advances but still Hugh persists in a sort of subconscious way.

Hugh--- Funny,very.

Joel---Of course, Hugh's not intentionally rude and unlike many others he holds no grudges, forgives easily and wishes people well.

Hugh--- The onset of wisdom, on display.
