So at least I'm not the only one who heard the debunked Brachos rumor ... I wonder where it came from.

comment Shelosha Ushmonim - mi yodeya?
I'd heard it suggested that Moshe and Aharon each reached identical spiritual levels; however, Aharon was 3 years older and thus had 3 more years to do it. So Moshe's spiritual growth rate was higher.

comment Tachanun on Yahrtzeit
The general custom is to omit Tachanun in an avel's house; if the avel goes to shul instead, it wouldn't surprise me to apply the same concept. But that's very different (I think?) from a yahrtzeit of a tzadik several hundred years ago.

The fun thing about this Day 81: Meseches Kinim. ("Combinatorics for rabbis.")

As we've asked before, can you prove more 81-ness, or is it just an 80 spin-off? (Not that I have super-better-answers.)
