comment Arba'im Umatayim - mi yodeya?
@msh210, umm, "Eliyahu Hanavi"...? Fair point about random gematriyot, though - I usually tend to agree with you, but these are just too much fun...

comment TOras chayim or ToRAS chayim in 19th b'racha?
@Isaac, I think that Hebrew grammaticians (sp?) would disagree.

@msh210, same as on the meta thread, I'm referring to yeshivish, and "Ashkenoizis" (as opposed to Ashkenazit...)

Actually, the correct pronounciation would be "toRAT". Other than that, this is correct.

Are you also excluding mistaken dialects? i.e. correct (or I should say common) in a given dialect, but that dialect is not correct Hebrew?

comment Passing an infant across a table
Probably has to do with wide tables, and worry about dropping the baby. Or leaky diapers dripping on the table. Seems more like one of those "I cut off the ends of the roast because my pan was too small. Why did you?" things...

@Yaakov, thank you, I stand corrected - I do remember learning that now, its what happens when I write too early in the morning :)

If I'm not mistaken, the commandment is for a King to write his own sefer torah, I don't think it applies to everyone?

comment Shiv'a Ushloshim Umatayim - mi yodeya?
@Alex is correct, that verse is close, but not quite. Still, I'll leave it for entertainment value...
