comment Why is it permissible to flush a toilet on Shabbat?
I asked myself the same question some time ago, and the only kulah I found was that this is melacha she'eina tzicha legufa (the result of the work is not required), because you want the water (and etc.) not to be in your house and not that you need it to be outside.

comment May an Ashkenazi wear Yemenite Tzitzith?
@NoachmiFrankfurt I think that you are not correct. From this part of the question: "a double-knot at the base of the tassle in order for the Tzitzith to be Kosher, regardless of how they are tied after that" I understand that he is talking about the knot above.

comment “I'm just not a 'learning guy'”
About the jump to extremes about am haaretz, I heard once that a man can be am haaretz related to one thing but not another. So not all am haaretz that are mentioned in the Gemorah are the same.

comment What year was the first Shemita?
@ShmuelBrin during the 70 years the shemita was counted miderabanan. Like we count now, after the destruction of the second temple, mederabanan (according to most of opinions).

comment At what point does a chazzan take three steps back after chazaras hashatz?
I also heard once this answer. But what happens if the Sha'tz for second part of the prayer (Ashrei and after that) is not the same person?
