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?

As in, there are 2 components that move back and forth across each other.

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?

comment Why do all our fast days revolve around the Beis Hamikdash?
Especially since from the psukim I believe it seems that most of yehudah was actually exiled before the destruction at galus y'hoyachin

comment How do you avoid 'al tiftah peh l'satan'?
The Gemara is very big on its use of euphemisms, I seem to recall an example in berachot where they say "the downfall of the haters of Israel" to refer to the downfall of the object of the haters, but don't wish to mention such a calamity.
