comment What is Pas Shacharis
Right -but they did have more refined bread, and less refined bread. Even though the more refined is less healthy, they considered it higher quality.

I'm saying, the more refined bread is considered "better," "higher quality" in those times. Not sure it's relevant, or maybe you knew that....just your wording confused me because of that.

In general I think "nicer" bread is considered white bread. So I'm not sure what you mean "even"...

comment Why no bracha acharona for wine drunk with a bread meal?
Incidentally I believe it's a machloket, and thus part of the reason for saying birkat hamazon over a cos.

comment What can you look for to ensure that a vegan restaurant is Kosher?
@Imray no, it is more like someone asking how to do a certain math problem, implying they wish to so it simply and he hand , and I say "use wolfram alpha". I did not show them how to solve it like they wanted to, but I answered the question of how to do it, and conveyed the point that there is no good and easy way to do it by hand.

@Shokhet yup I agree the other answers over there are more useful. (while maintaining that I answered the question as it was posed here). If I chose not to move it over because the answers there are sufficient, am I supposed to leave this here, or delete my answer?

Nope. Though looking at it logically, it seems that from the way the trimmer appears to work it is even MORE like scissors than the shaver itself, no?
