comment Heter to own Sefarim
After reading this through a few times, I found the question you're asking, but it's far from clear. I think you're asking what the person means by "the heter to own sefarim." If you can figure out a way to ask that without a back story, it would be easier to answer (and not to get off-topic answers like the one so far).

comment Why didn't Hashem call twice to Yitzchak like he did to other prophets?
I'd love an answer along the lines of Yitzhak as din / gevurah here. I wonder if anyone speaks to/can speak to that.

comment Where to get etrogim in the US after Sukkot
I've seen citrons for sale. Apparently they are used in Christmas fruit cakes. Also, Buddha's hand smells the same and I assume it tastes the same, too. It's easier to find in grocery stores.

comment “I'm just not a 'learning guy'”
Isn't there an aggadah about a group of people who learned all the time and therefore didn't have to daven and another group who davened all the time and therefore didn't have to learn?

Got a citation from the S"A? (and/or MB that opposes it?)

comment What side does someone with Situs inversus bang
Though my initial thought was that we go by rov here, these are such personal prayers that the individual deserves more attention. Good question.

comment Does Shabbos food make one fat?
I do think G-d can do unnatural things. I don't think that we go to rabbis for medical advice.
