@WAF if "garon" literally meant throat, you could pretty much never be hayav for something because it is a beriya-it usually wouldn't be whole by the time it gets to your throat.

comment Eating meat: when do the 6 hours start?
If its based on when you start eating, if you have a seven hour meal may you eat basar bechalav during that seventh hour? Or can you eat them consecutively just not together? Does it matter if its "derekh bishul"?

Yabia Omer O"C vol. 7. I'd post it if I had access, but I'm sure you're plenty capable of looking it up yourself. Its around the 20's (simanim-wise), addressed to his son R. Yitzchak.

comment Can you fold a tallis on Shabbos?
@DoubleAA the Hebrew clearly says talitoteyhem- why change it? Sometimes I feel like "proper yiddish" is code for "grammarless hebrew"

I know people who, as advised by the rabbi, stopped driving to bet kinesset on shabbat and took up biking instead.

comment Best practices for praying in public with talit and tefilin
R David Yosef in Halacha Berura has a great suggestion for not freaking out non-Jews with your tefillin: cover them with your talit! (He really lives in E Israel!)

comment Does bagged lettuce need a hechsher?
When does the Aruch Hashulchan apply? I've heard that when an infestation is found, its pretty obvious- but they're only found in certain harvests. Does that mean that lettuce overall has no obvious infestation?

You can't state something as fact if you don't have a text to back yourself up.
