comment What do you have to check for Shatnez?
-1. A) R' Yirmiyohu Kaganoff disagrees with your first point. See his article "When Must I Check for Shatnez?". He looks at the sources and finds that, regarding garments, they aren't choshesh only for a mi'ut hamatzuy. B) See this post, s.vv. "It usually differs even from one identical suit to the next". C) Dear Ariel: Could you please edit your post and remove your theory about identical suits? D) Also, can you cite any rabbi to support your remaining points?

Dear Ariel: Can you cite any rabbi to support your post? Because R' Yirmiyohu Kaganoff disagrees with you. See his article "When Must I Check for Shatnez?". He looks at the sources and finds that, regarding garments, they aren't choshesh only for a mi'ut hamatzuy.

@MonicaCellio: In the game, I do not play myself: I play a fictional character, such as a warrior or an archer. But when the game asks me to name the character, I might enter my real name: this makes the game assign a sensible filename to my saved game data file.

Note: I have already tried various Google searches, such as [ halacha computer | video game idol | deity | zara | zarah ]. None have helped.

comment Should I wear tefillin during Chol HaMoed?
Dear all: Sam lives in the United States. Theoretically: He could think about where his father lived, and his paternal grandfather, and his paternal great-grandfather, and so on. Then, he could make a decision based on what the custom was in their countries. Would this be a good way for Sam to make a decision?
