comment How is Rav Feinstein's psak regarding subway travel and the sexes distinguished today by those wanting to sit separately on buses and planes?
@DoubleAA he actually addresses that. "But it will cause thoughts!" Still, take the bus or subway. But if it causes an um, anatomic reaction, a man shouldn't -- but Rav Moshe doesn't think that Joe Baalabos who's busy with kids, job, mortgage, wife, minyan, and daf yomi is really going to have that kind of reaction.

comment How can yeast be kosher lǝPesach?
You'll also see "torula yeast" in some ingredients. Papermakers have "wood soup" in need of disposal, and the torula yeast eat the nutrients in that. Win for the papermakers, win for the yeastmakers, win for kashrus because pine is kosher l'pesach, pareve, lamehadrin!

@DoubleAA Se'or is your sourdough starter. It still contains flour and water.
