comment Is it permissible to use a Hotel's Drinking Glasses?
YDK, he said this specifically with regard to hotel glasses. He said you could use it the first (I don't remember whether it's "day" or "time") but that's it; someone asked that they probably change the glasses; he said oh then it would be okay. Someone then asked about the fact that it's glass, he said for Ashkenazim it makes no difference lechatchila.

comment What can one learn on Tisha B'Av?
YS, the guideline on editing other users' answers is to respect them. Stuff like fixing typos or linking terms to wikipedia is okay. Your point here was different and significant enough that it belongs as a comment, or you can write your own answer (including whatever pieces of mine you like).

comment Shelosha Veshishim - mi yodeya?
This assumes we count Nezikin's Bavas Kama,Metzia,Basra (first, middle, and last portions) as separate tractates, but Kelim as one large tractate (though the Tosefta really treats it as three pieces too -- oops, did I give away an answer for 65?).

comment Shelosha Veshishim - mi yodeya?
Woops, thank you. So much for my crowd-source-hearsay-and-rumors. It figures Shabbos would be longest; it's the longest tractate of Mishna (by chapters) for which we have a Babylonian Talmud, right? The next-longest Bavli is ... I'm seeing Sanhedrin.

comment Shelosha Veshishim - mi yodeya?
And while Berachos is a medium-sized tractate page-wise, its actual Talmudic text is the longest of any tractate -- this due to page after page with lots of text and very little commentary. (As opposed to, um, ahem, Bava Basra -- thanks, Rashbam!)

We find for instance "malin oso miMa Nafshach" -- we can do circumcision on this baby, FROM a "what is your desire" argument.
