I am a software engineer living in Atlanta, Georgia. 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. My Mi.Yodeya reputation has finally exceeded my SO reputation! I'm not a nerd anymore.

comment Do Whole Vanilla Beans Need A Hekhsher?
@DoubleAA I have the Android app. I believe they have one for iPhone as well. I've been trying to find the equivalent list online but so far been unsuccessful.

comment Are Synagogues “holy ground,” offering protection from evil creatures?
@user9844 I suspect you are correct. To be honest, I don't know the answer to your question. What I have been trying to do is direct the question in the direction that you mentioned: finding out whether there is anything in Judaism that would explicitly prevent this rule from making sense. What I don't know is whether there is any such thing.

How does this address the question? Is a synagogue protected by nature of being "holy ground" from vampire intrusion?

@Alan I have edited your question to make it not a request for psak. Would an answer to the question as it is currently phrased be helpful for you?

@andrewmh20 Those are potentially interesting questions, but I don't think they're what the OP is interested in.

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
@andrewmh20 General questions about cross-dressing are already addressed on this site. I don't think there's really any way to make this specific question less of a request for psak.

comment Which rabbis are knowledgeable about sexual dysfunction and accept Sholom Bayis questions?
Hi Alan. Welcome to Mi Yodeya! This is a very personal question and probably the internet is not the best place to go searching for answers. It seems from your question that you have many personal considerations that should be addressed by a rabbi who knows you. If we told you it was ok, would you be willing to trust a bunch of random internet people? What if we're wrong?

comment Can one trust gentile sources for trope systems?
@mevaqesh If the inaccurate cantillation results in improperly parsing the sentence, that could be a halachic impropriety.

comment Must a non-Jew accept the Noachide laws as binding?
@SethJ not exactly. One could consciously observe them without accepting them as binding if he knows they exist. (hmm these 7 laws seem like they're worthwhile guidelines to live my life by)

comment Reform Judaism as an avenue for Ethical Monotheism for gentiles
@ShmuelBrin AFAIK they are monotheistic; although some might not believe that God plays an active role in the world.
