comment Why does the order of temple services in our prayers follow the non-hallachic opinion?
Do you have a citation for "the purpose of reciting the sacrifices is to recall the way things were performed in the Temple"? If, as Menachos 110 says, the goal is the study of the avodah, then the particular version of it studied need not be the exact process.

comment Is the bracha of Retzei (avodah) a Bakasha?
this site hakhel.info/TefillahArchives/ShemaKoleinu.html indicates that shma koleinu is the summary and ending of the bakasha section but this flies in the face of the gemara's list of brachot as connected bakashot, each no more summative than any other.

comment What amount of time qualifies as being “Tircha D'Tzibbur”?
could it be dependent on the particular tzibbur? Maybe the question should be about the logic of institutionalizing something which is naturally variable.

comment Is troilism with someone's two wives allowed?
Not to be prurient, but I think, physiologically, the precise act could not be committed with two wives at the same time.

comment Cranberries on Passover
@msh210 thanks for the clarification. I read through their pesach list and they don't mention any concern with fresh cranberries (unlike raspberries, blueberries and blackberries).

comment Sold Chametz being visible
this makes sense but I am trying to figure out what the author of the wiki page was sourced in when he wrote, "One who keeps the sold chametz in his or her household must seal it away so that it will not be visible during the holiday." I know, wiki isn't reliable but I figure he got it somewhere (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chametz)
