comment Must a woman cover her hair during childbirth?
@GershonGold #1 is a general principle that the torah does not ask people to be angelic, meaning to go to superhuman lengths. similar to "Hashem does not overly trouble his creations". #2 if her life is in danger she should be exempt from extraneous actions and focus on the task at hand #3 I don't even know how to respond to that except to say it ain't always so pashut -- but in any case if it does fall off would she have to put it back on? Can I assume you concur with point #4?

comment Must a woman cover her hair during childbirth?
@GershonGold 1) lo nit'na torah l'malachei hashares 2)choleh sh'yeish bo sakana 3) kavod ha'brios (are we really going to ask her to hold onto her tichel while pushing out a baby?) 4)this is not a situation that is conducive to hirhur aveirah (similar to sotah)

comment Making two brachos at once
@DoubleAA that's what I'm having trouble understanding. I'm not making a hefsek that is unrelated to what I'm doing (eating crispix). Would this be similar to making 2 brachos on lighting the menorah?

comment How does laughing confuse the Satan?
@Alex to be clear I was only told the "to confuse the satan" part, the rest I surmised on my own (so it could be totally incorrect).

comment Why do we cover the challot on Shabbos?
so if I understand correctly, to summarize, the embarrassment issue comes from a non-extant Yerushalmi? And the earliest source after that is the Mordechai in Pesachim?
