revised Why have I never seen anyone “slicing the Shema”?
1. Dejargonifying. 2. Clarifying: "shiur" might make people think the link points to audio, but it actually points only to ordinary text.

comment While playing a computer game, may I “worship” one of the game's “gods” to help me win?
@Shokhet: I was also surprised by my rabbi's answer. However, nobody else here has asked their own rabbi; and anyway, it would be silly for me hold like someone else's rabbi's answer. :)

@Shokhet: I didn't feel attacked at all. You were asking if my rabbi was influenced by some past controversy regarding D&D. Was he? Maybe yes. Maybe no. I haven't asked him, so I have no idea. :)

comment A rabbi asked me to light candles before weekday Mincha/Ma'ariv. Is this customary? Is there a bracha?
Ah. I've now reread the question and I see that your interpretation is indeed a plausible one.

comment If your rabbi accidentally tells you that something is allowed, and you follow him, are you punished?
@DoubleAA: You pointed me to a webpage which contains all 13 folios of the Gemara's tractate Horayos (which is also available in English). Which part(s) discuss the case of a single individual rabbi who mistakenly permitted something which is forbidden?

revised If there are ants in the sink on Shabbat, can I use the sink even though they'll drown?
