revised Can you redeem ma'aser sheni using a $5 bill — even though burning it will enrich your countrymen?
(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 (maaser sheni) 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.

comment Is Extra virgin olive oil kosher by default?
Excellent question! +1. I agree with Isaac Moses: you should ask your rabbi, for many reasons. If he says it's not kosher: You can ask him whether or not you may use it to kindle your Sabbath or Chanukah lamps. Or you can give it to a non-Jewish acquaintance. Or you can donate it to a food bank. Or you can put it out at the curb in a box labeled "Free".

comment If your rabbi accidentally tells you that something is allowed, and you follow him, are you punished?
@ray: The only reason I claim the rabbi is unreliable is because, in this made-up example case, he gave a wrong answer.

@ray: Who forced the 119-year-old in the question to sin? Maybe it was his own fault: maybe he should've done more due diligence before choosing a rabbi.
