revised Near a bad smell, one might want to do Sh'ma, the Amidah, blessings, study, or think Torah. Is halacha equally strict about all five acts?

@Guy: Thank you for your comment; it's inspired me to strengthen my question. Shmuel Brin disputes your second sentence. And I've just edited my question to argue against your third sentence.

revised What are the most essential Jewish websites?
Formatting. In the previous revision, the Markdown renderer didn't actually hide the entire HTML comment. This edit fixes the answer's source so that the Markdown renderer indeed hides the entire HTML comment from viewers.

@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.
