  1. I copyrighted the name Harry. My lawyer will be contacting you in the near future :-)

    Btw i have skype built into my browser, and all the phone numbers that you wrote, now have a skype linked to them. Amusing.

  2. Rabbi Teitelbaum is currently the Rav of the YI of Lawrence-Cedarhurst. Unless you didn't want to drag him into this . . .

    Oh, 5'11". In my experience, dead giveaway for 5'7". If he actually was 5'11", he could've just said 6" already.

    Since I've slept through your classes, I can say that personality, religion, and what seeking are unnecessary. Are you gonna fail me?

  3. @harry-er than them all:
    Let me know when you have a Cease and Desist Order. :-P

    Cool. Give’em a call and see what they have to say about their buddy Harry. (okay, maybe not, I don’t know what would happen)

    Dragging real Rabbis into this was not the intention. Let just say someone didn’t do their homework when making this resume…. :-/

    Really? How can someone 5’7” fake being 5’11”? That’s just bizarre!

    Correct. Since you got the right idea I won’t fail you, but you will lose points for “unsatisfactory class participation.” :-) although you could still change that… ;-)

  4. I have been blatantly LIED to about height. And as I'm tall, it can get awkward when a guy shows up in fictional height. 5'11" = 5'7", I kid you not.

  5. You know tall girls lie about their height too…
