Perhaps it would be best if I don't share my information. For your sake, not just mine. I did work at the Anxious Clown for some time though, in case you are curious.

@SethJ would the laws of something being chayav in tzitzis be different depending on its use? whether its a cloak or a prayer shawl, if it does not require tzitzis, do you fulfill a mitzvah by wearing it? From what i understand the POINT of wearing a prayer shawl is to fulfill the mitzvah of tzitzis, which isn't necessarily happening here.

Thats the shulchan aruchs opinion. My custom is otherwise- I do not make a brucha on a tallis sheula unless it belongs to a shul and is designated to be borrowed. I even included that info in the question for this very reason.

comment Do tzitzit have to be white?
The fact that it requires a blue string isn't disputed, the dispute is the "blue strings" you see in the stores today count.

comment What is the Halachah if someone lost an object despite efforts to protect it?
It depends on a lot of factors. If he was a shomer chinum he would be patur on gneivuh viaveiduh. The question is does this qualify as such or was it a pshiya. Care to share more details?

@AdamMosheh right and the other two he took off and you added are totally worth creating! Forget about the fact that mods are dealing with an overflow of tags, let's create new ones that nobody is ever going to use!

@AdamMosheh why do you assume it's a valid question? That being said, I'm sure some of the downvotes are for being moreid bamalchus.

@AdamMosheh yes it does. The question asks on Jewish literature associating Arabic with Hebrew, and the answer provided just that +1.

comment Why do mourning practices surrounding suicide differ from Shulchan Aruch?
I once spoke to a Posek who had to deal with this on a semi-personal level. He said that although the mental illness sevara is a bit of a stretch, we must take into account the anguish of the grieving parents/family.

comment Is throwing out challah you were mafrish a violation of bal tashchit?
The Torah doesn't say anywhere that you must burn challah. It's the minority opinion of the rosh, which some Jews accepted. -1 If I could.
