@CharlesKoppelman: But see "If I wear a synthetic and/or mesh garment with Tzitzis, will I fulfill the mitzvah of Tzitzis?".

"Part 1" of the question asked about a mesh tallit katan. "Part 2" asked about a "plastic" tallit katan. "Part 3" asked about a "combination" of Parts 1 and 2: a synthetic mesh tallit katan. Since Part 3 discussed a synthetic garment, and since Part 3 is discussed a combination of Part 1 and Part 2, therefore I assume that when SimchasTorah wrote the word "plastic" in Part 2, s/he must have meant "synthetic". I've just submitted a suggested edit accordingly. Dear SimchasTorah: Please try to write more clearly next time.

comment Tzitzis while exercising?
-1. Pro: This answer is well-written and clear. Con: Unlike Ben's answer, Shalom's answer doesn't cite any responsa related to this question. Instead, Shalom discusses only the prevalent practice at his own yeshiva. I feel the con outweighs the pro, so I am downvoting this answer.

@yitznewton: If the rabbi would rather not be identified, then perhaps it's best not to play guessing games.

comment Should I rend k'riyah if I witness the death of a non-relative? If so, what's the procedure?
@DoubleAA: Good point. I see nobody has posted any answers yet, despite the fact that the bounty has run for six days. So I've edited my question to remove the query about whether or not you can switch shirts before tearing. I hope this will encourage people to answer.

+. Removing a mediocre idea of mine: matzah farfel isn't as dense as granola. Also removing "Don't forget to continue keeping all the commandments, even at your destination": the asker didn't request mussar.
