comment Is an asexual person obligated in Pru Urvu?
@Yishai: For better or for worse, people do sometimes ask practical halacha questions on this site instead of asking their LOR.

revised Can a man remove hair?
This answer didn't say _which_ Rambam it was talking about. Adding a citation and a link to that Rambam.

(I'm not sure which changes this summary will apply to. So it's hard for me to write a useful edit summary here.)

comment Best way to destroy coins
Minting coins can be expensive. But some countries, such as Canada, allow you to burn their banknotes. So: 1. Point out to your rabbi that burning banknotes enriches your countrymen. Then ask whether or not it's okay to use a banknote to redeem Maaser Sheni. 2. If it's permissible, do so, then burn the banknote. 3. If you want to burn the new Canadian plastic banknotes, consult a doctor first. Ask about the health effects of the fumes which will result.
