comment Non-literal Midrashim
@msh210 I agree it ought be reopened (and cleaned up). The first question ("When do we know...?") is unique, and unlike the other answer, there's no "meta-halakha" of "must we." The second question is not distinct from the dupe.

comment What are the exact Shmita dates (in Gregorian) since 1900 or a general formula for determining the dates?
@Gary Unrelatedly, Gregorian dating didn't start everywhere in 1582.

Feel free to vote to close as off-topic. I think I'd be tempted to do the same.

Parve or dairy, I'd bet it's not that tasty.

comment Can I use a cutlass for a shechita knife?
After looking at a few videos online, I think the average British cutlass from the pirate era is something like 24-30".

@NoachmiFrankfurt what if you're a lawyer or consultant or another person who charges by the hour/six-minute? Maybe this is a new question, but not one I'm sufficiently interested in to ask.

If you have two clocks, does it violate having two sets of weights?

comment Should single men not sit at corner of the table?
This is what the idea sounds like to me, as well. "Bubbe, just get in the middle and meet a nice meidl already! None of this hanging on the corners business."

@Ze'evFelsen I think there's a purim-torah question waiting to happen there. (though the answers wouldn't be that funny).

FYI - Tevila status does not impact kashrut of the food prepared on it. It's a whole different halakha that only affects the owner of the implements.
