I am a student at Northwestern University studying computer science. I am looking forward to my Mi.Yodeya reputation exceeding my Stack Overflow reputation, because I think that will mean that I am no longer a nerd.

comment What is a Hava Amina Teretz?
I don't exactly understand your first explanation. You mean someone had a hava amina and someone else challenged, and the response to the challenge is the hava amina terutz?

After I finished sitting shiva for my father, my Rabbi walked my mother and me around the block. I just assumed it was something that everybody did. He didn't give a source for it.
