I work as a computer tester by day. By night I like to write. I like cats and dogs.

comment What other work can a mashgiach do in a kosher restaurant today?
That was indeed the reason; in Amsterdam, they have both an Ashkenazic and Sephardic hechsher.

comment Uman for Rosh Hashanah?
I have a second cousin who went there once (he missed his connecting flight in Amsterdam and was stuck for Shabbos here). He showed up at our door carrying a knapsack and a 10 liter bottle of vodka (I'm guessing - it was HUGE). So some people go to pray; others go for the cheap booze.

comment Filmmaking - Bal Tashchis?
It depends on how much money it would cost to make the eggs. It would also depend on whether dumping eggs on the floor was even necessary in the first place (there are probably plenty of other cheap props - such as a fake cup of coffee - that would get the point of spilling a product across).

Move to Holland. The tradition here is to wait only 1 hour between eating meat and milk.

comment Is Red Bullâ„¢ kosher?
Personally, I couldn't care less if it's got a proper hechsher or not. I tried Red Bull once, and it was disgusting! Give me good ol' coffee any day of the week!
