comment squeezing lemon juice onto slush on shabbas
@DoubleAA: The terms for food/drink used regarding the laws of squeezing is Ochel/Mashkeh (like in Birkot Hanehenin) however regarding Bishul / Baser VHalav the term used is davar yavesh/davar lach... so it seems fair here to use the definition of Ochel and Mashkeh.

comment How old was Eisav when he fell into bad ways?
how can you say both כל זמן ה שהיו קעניס לא היו נכרי' במעשיהם (which implies that after 13 his deeds were clear to all) and that which Siftei CHachamim says: וי״ל לאותן שתי שנים עשה בצנעה יאח״ב עשה בפרהסיא

+1 , thanks B'ezrat Hashem i'll take a look, but from Rashi 25:27 it seems pretty clear that it was public

comment Does the name Daniel really mean: 'G-d is my judge'?
@DoubleAA, I changed the title... The other question certainly doesn't ask this (in any case the whole reference to 'Daniel' wasn't really part of the original question anyway)

I think what he really meant to ask was: "What is the difference between self-sacrifice (Mesirut Nefesh) of a Jew and self-sacrifice of a gentile"

Nachor only got children when he was old (see Mikraot gedolot in end of Parshat Vayeira) so it's unlikely that the family was large

comment Bread between fish and meat requires hamotzi?
@msh210 when I say 'logical', what i mean is that the person has a genuine feeling that food #2 is Tafel to food #1 ... do you know of an example where this is not the case?

comment Bread between fish and meat requires hamotzi?
@msh210 Imagine there was no halachik requiremment to eat/drink something between fish-meat. Now can you tell me how exactly the bread is related to the fish/meat?.... ellah ma... the connection is halachik not a logical Ikar/Tafel intention

comment the land from which you brought us out = Egypt?
@SethJ If the gemora didn't hold of this assertion as a matter of fact - then what does it prove to bring a diyuk from Chumash in order to learn out a specific law / lesson? ... we could say... why is it written like that? STAM!

comment the land from which you brought us out = Egypt?
@SethJ : there is an example of a very similar type of question brought in gemora Pesachim 3a. The verse by Noach (Genesis 7:8) says to bring into the ark animals that are טהורה (pure) and animals that are אשר איננה טהורה (lit. that are not pure). This is instead of the shorter and more conventional טמאה (impure). ... from here we learn the importance of clean speech!
