comment Hetairim for shaving during the omer
@hazoriz, in fact, your point about there being two questions raises another objection. "What other ones exist?" is not a valid question for the format on this site. It's too open-ended and does not define what information you seek.

comment Hetairim for shaving during the omer
@hazoriz you're right. You're asking for sources for two heterim that have nothing to do with each other. I see these as two separate questions. I was referring to #3 on your list of things you've noticed.

Question 3 seems distinct from the question about Sefirah. Please ask it separately (if it's not a duplicate of a question that's already been asked).

comment Connections between Biur Chametz and Tashlich?
I don't see it myself, especially since I've heard most people argue that we shouldn't throw bread into the water. But who knows? Maybe someone somewhere does talk about it. +1 for explaining the question thoroughly (imo).

comment Why did people not go to Shul at Yom Tov by night?
@user6591, that comment sounds very speculative (and I commend you for your "perhaps"), yet you sound pretty certain. Have you heard this before somewhere? If so, source?

comment First Steps to becoming Jewish
In your case, it might be best not to convert but to follow the Noahide laws. It sounds like conversion in your case could destabilize an otherwise happy home.

comment Where did the myth that the *entire* matza process must be done in under 18 minutes come from?
@DoubleAA, doesn't the "if it is left idle" part distinguish it? In other words, so long as it's rolled out and put in the oven without being left idle, just as Aaron says in penultimate paragraph, "you could still be kneading the dough for 3 hours, put it right in the oven, and still have kosher matzah."

comment Why was Mordechai wearing a royal garmet with a hole in it?
This is pure speculation, of course, but part of me wonders if the significance of כַּרְפַּס in royal circles led to its inclusion in the Seder rituals. I mean, if we're dipping our royal veggies into salt-water "tears", that's pretty profound. (This comment is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.)
