comment Where could an extreme ultra-orthodox baal t'shuva etc. realistically find a shidduch?
This is less than an answer but more than a comment -- if you hear they're suggesting a shidduch that's ridiculously "out of your league", it's probably too good to be true -- e.g. s/he's related to a big-name rosh yeshiva, but they're not telling you that the actual person in question has severe behavioral problems.

comment How do we know that a potential korban is not אֶתְנַן זוֹנָה וּמְחִיר כֶּלֶב?
@AvrohomYitzchok why should it be any different? We don't concern ourselves with theoretical rare events.

comment Bootstrapping problem: havdalah ends shabbat (for one who didn't daven ma'ariv) but lighting the candle is melacha?
@SAH we don't use the name of G-d for baruch hamavdil.

comment What should a Jew do if encountered by ISIS?
@ElyBeauEastman "chutz" means "outside." "Chutz la'aretz" means "outside the land of Israel." The question would [presumably] be the same if some random hapless Jew got lost and wandered into the wrong part of Iraq.
