comment Sheva Brachos when getting divorced
@msh210 first citation is gruhsas libo in Nedorim, point 7 in he.wikipedia.org/wiki/… and according to second citations - it's "k" from "yaal kagam" where the halaha is according to Abaye against Rove (don't remember who say what). Anyway, I think that the prohibition of bnei tisha midos is not strong enough to invalidate the kiddushin.

comment Stirah: is snow good or bad in Judaism?
In Taanit, gemorah says that snow is 5 times better then rain. And we all know that rain is good (at least at winter)

comment A woman with dreadlocks going to the mikveh
@DoubleAA As I preceded: if most of women do makpid we say batla daata. Therefore, I think we should consider this as deoraisa case.

comment How do we know that the civil Saturday is the correct Shabbat?
@JimThio in the answer I didn't claimed that the proof is verifiable today. According to "why only his grave emit smoke?" - you are welcomed to ask a separate question about that.

comment Killing insects on Yom Tov
Sorry for confusion about "Lastly", @Ariel is correct, I meant "Lately". I'm not sure that killing is always melocha sheina tsriha legufa, as I remember in Shabbos there is a svora, that the butcher is interested that the meat would be with blood, because this way the meat looks more fresh and it is easier to sell it.

comment When you're trapped by someone Davening behind you
@SethJ The answer I got from Rav, is that I should continue "as usually", so I understood that I say Aleinu,ViYhi No'am and so on. What is the difference between maariv and other prayers. More then once, it occurred to me be stucked on minha, till after congregation finished hazarat hashats.

They converted before that and ceased to be Amalek. So, I don't think this answers the question.

comment Universal theory of Biblical eye-raising
here (haoros.com/Archive/index.asp?kovetz=834&cat=10&haoro=1): it is told about lot of places in Torah that מדובר בענין ראיה מרחוק. This means that 'וישא עיניו' is looking at a distant place.

comment Which masechtot don't really have Rashi?
As an anecdote: in Nedorim it is written Rashi/Ran in the heading of each daf. Something that is not practiced in other masechtot :) hebrewbooks.org/shas.aspx?mesechta=16&daf=2&format=pdf

comment How to fix Mamzeirim
@YDK Re: a-the simplist and b-the lesser chidush from the original suggestion. a - why do you think it's more simple to talk about intention of the husband when he married. The sugiya is about nullifying the get not in front of shliah, so it is simpler to explain that "אי ידעינן שלכך מתכוין" goes on the intention of the husband at time of divorce. b - I'm not sure I understand what original suggestion you mean.

comment How to fix Mamzeirim
@YDK she wouldn't take her chance deliberately, but she would be less careful if she would know that there is a possible "clean exit", and this can lead to takala.

comment How to fix Mamzeirim
@Menachem the meaning of "אי ידעינן שלכך מתכוין" is: if we know that husband nullified divorce without witnesses in order to retroactively nullify kiddushin and avoid mamzerim problem the kissushin are not nullified. According to your interpretation it sould be התכון not מתכון. See the context in the gemarah and it would be clear.
