comment Said Kiddush Levana prior to three days after Molad - Does he say it again?
@DoubleAA: The Be'er Hataiv does not say what happens if he says it prior to three days. Although I do agree with you that most likely he would issue a ruling as you say. I would accept an answer that would include a source saying that is one makes Kiddush levana prior to the three days, one does not have to repeat it. I am upvoting your answer, however can not accept yet.

@DoubleAA: Did someone say something is wrong? The reason it is not accepted is because it is your conjecture, not from a source that says so.

comment Vort or an engagement party?
Unfortunately many of your questions are asked in a way that I do not see the point. Perhaps you should work on explaining your point better, and thus you will get upvotes instead of downvotes, and answers that are more to the point.

I think the questions are degenerating. Just because it is Purim Torah should not give a license to ask any question. I think questions such as these are not appropriate.

comment Judaism and dementia
There is a book written by Douglas J. Kohn called Broken Fragments: Jewish Experiences of Alzheimer's Disease through Diagnosis, Adaptation and Moving On. I do not think it is from a Orthodox perspective, however it is from a Jewish perspective.

Downvoter: This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy. Unless you didn't like the joke. In which case, I hear you.
