comment What constitutes as a ברכה שאינה צריכה?
@Ani Yodea what are you asking ? do you want to know what the parameters of Bracha SHEina Tzricha is ? or do you want to know if it is appropriate to eat dessert after bentching on shabbos so you can get 100 brachos in. don't reply - edit your question :)

comment What side does someone with Situs inversus bang
@DoubleAA That is correct. and according to the Medrish perhaps we should all get chest x-rays before Yom Kippur to make sure we score a direct hit ! I think they both are saying the same thing in spirit and the idea was to add a deed to help make the vidui more meaningful. I think we would both agree that it is more important to understand what you are saying and be sincere in your vidui than what side we "klop" on.

comment Is the blessing after food determined by the blessing before it?
Thanks but there are some pretty tough people around here and I am reluctant to post an answer without good sources :-) If by accident you forgot to say Hagoffen in Kiddush but said everything else you would only need to say the Hagoffen once you remembered and not repeat the whole Kiddush. Contrast that with a case where you said Kiddush over tap water where you would need to go back and redo the whole Kiddush. Note when I say Kiddush I am referring to Friday Night Kiddush which is D'Orayta

comment Is the blessing after food determined by the blessing before it?
And that's my answer :-) once it has been diluted the halacha takes it out of the category of wine so you haven't drunk wine rather sweet water and there is no difference between the blessing before or after. Let's say by accident you used diluted wine for Kiddush; according to you would you be yotzai after all you drank the required amount of wine in the right amount of time ? yet we find that the halacha disagrees. The wine is simply no longer there. You may have drunk what you consider wine but the halacha does not consider it wine.
