comment Were firstborn children born to a mother who miscarried killed during Makat Bechorot?
Actually, Pidyon HaBen applies to a mother's firstborn. The Midrash says that Makat Bechorot applied to every father's firstborn; this led to a lot of surprises that night, as not everyone's fatherhood was as stated!

@DanF the how do we know each plague counted as multiple? was a later addition, and it's not in the Rambam's hagada.

comment Can one give maaser to a fundraiser that will only donate its profits to charity?
Bake sale: if you're getting market-valued goods and services, that doesn't come out of maaser. If the yeshiva bake sale is selling a cake for $15 and I could buy the same cake at the grocery store for $10, that's a $5 donation. If they're selling it for $10, that's $0 donation. (More importantly, a banquet: the ticket may cost $200, but $50 of that is what you'd pay for the same food at a restaurant. The remainder is your donation.)
