Do you have sources for your assertions about the practices of the rabanut or farmers?

comment “Law of Attraction”?
This is a bad question. But I really like the answers. I will try to rewrite it in a way that reflects what I was thinking in 2010, is consistent with itself and its answers as they currently stand, and is within the bounds of ethical edits.

comment Can you say berachot in the lying position or in bed?
Please note that at the same time the practice (and p'sak) with respect to the order and temporal placement of these b'rachos changed - for some influential Ashkenazi rishonim - the acceptability of reciting the b'rachos in various positions and postures may have changed as well. I.e. The current acceptable practice may not match that found in the g'mara for many European-descended practitioners.

comment Sukka - can walls extend past the schach
I was commenting on the words I quoted from your answer, just because I thought the point about the edge needed clarification.

comment Looking for a word with a distinct meaning driven by mesorah
Not sure where you draw the line, but how about k'ruv (the noun) or n-f-sh (the verb)?

comment Sukka - can walls extend past the schach
...**if the wall is at the edge of the schach**... Please note that gud asik allows short walls to extend up to s'chach, but not up to mid-air. It is easier to "connect" s'chach to real walls than to the imaginary extensions thereof by way of lavud. I.e. If real s'chach is very close but not overhanging real walls, lavud says that they connect anyway. Whereas if it is only close but not overhanging gud asik extensions, lavud doesn't work.
