אה"נ that it's a paraphrase but Rash"i is explaining the word דתינה as "toward their calculations" or something similar.

comment Bananagrams on Shabbos
@SimchasTorah The isur of adult people playing games on shabas is mentioned in a mini-t'shuva from Rav Moshe in the back of Halachos of Muktzah, in the section "questions the author asked Rav Moshe". (Sorry for the imprecision. This is based on memory.)

comment Card Counting Permissibility
@Shalom What do you mean by "believed to be all chance"? Whose belief is the significant one? The casino's? Would you have an obligation to inform them if they were running games susceptible to /gaming/?

comment paying for an apartment
I'm going on hearsay here, but I'm pretty sure that there are indeed varying practices in this regard - some in which an entire apartment is paid for, others in which contributions toward the apartment are made, and others still in which two apartments are provided (one to live in and one to hire out).

comment What does “the Talmud” mean in the Talmud?
@inSeattle You are still implying that there was a conventional body of work "Notes!" that any given text could be either "in" or "out of". If so, the work of Ravina and Rav Ashi was seemingly just to rubber stamp this preexisting thing. Is this really how it happened?

comment What are some examples of Jewish names?
@Moshe What do you mean by "occupations and locations"? Are you asking for any and all Jewish names, their meanings and origins?
