comment Should you say a blessing on diet soda used to swallow a pill?
+1; thank you very much. At synagogue this evening, I also looked into the matter. I checked The Laws of B'rachos by R' Binyomin Forst. Page 134 footnote 9 discusses diet soda in detail. Here is a summary of the footnote: R' Forst and R' Shlomo Zalman Auerbach both agree: Diet soda requires a blessing even if you're not thirsty.

+1: well-researched. Has anyone listened to R' Lebowitz's lecture? What does he conclude about text messaging in the bathroom?

revised Should you say a blessing on diet soda used to swallow a pill?
I cited revach.net citing R' Auerbach, but it's not only R' Auerbach who holds like this: all authorities I've read all hold like this. Editing the question to make that fact clearer.

comment Yom Kippur, fasting, and snot
@msh210: Hi! I'm the OP. Thank you for your answer. Please note that the subject of the question doesn't want the snot to touch his hands, nor does he want it to touch any part of any garment. Given these facts, should this answer perhaps be converted into a comment?
