comment How can an 'Eved own an 'Eved?
@DoubleAA, back to your original question, at the very least, I'd expect him to have to forward his earnings to his owner, since he is, after all, supposed to be earning money for him.

@DoubleAA, got time to go down the Tosafoth rabbit hole? I'm not sure I do.

@DoubleAA I thought of a value discrepancy, but even so, I would think that an 'Eved is a big-ticket item, so you'd think that any earnings the 'Eved has that are that significant would end up in his owner's hands, no? Rashi has an answer, I believe. Looking into it.

comment What is the earliest source of the story of Serach bas Asher and the harp?
Again, your points are all valid. The thing is, though, there's no statement saying, "No, there is no earlier source," or even, "No, I don't think there is an earlier source." I think my edit helps with that; I hope you agree.

@DoubleAA, as a mod, what say you? I'm reluctant to flag for deletion, since it's gotten 4 upvotes, was contributed by a high-rep user, and has been here for over a year. (I also can rarely access 'Bam these days to chat about it.)

All very valid points and worthy of a comment, but this does not actually answer the question that was asked.

comment Writing the name chaya
@andrewmh20, FWIW (not much, probably), my non-Chabad rabbi wrote my name, which contains a Yud and Hey combination, with an apostrophe in place of the Hey in his inscription of a book he gave me on behalf of the Shul at my Bar Mitzvah a million years ago.

@msh210 if you find it, do link to it. I'm curious what answers it's gotten.

comment sofek yayin stam in a keli
David, see my comment on Shalom's answer. It's not clear what you're asking. Please clarify. Also, your title led me to think you were asking something completely different, different still from what Shalom seems to think you're asking. So, basically, there are at least three possible interpretations of your question.

I don't think that's the question. If I understood correctly (and I'm not sure; I'm going to post a comment and vote to close as unclear), the question is about indirect contact with the bottle - that is, some kind of bottle holder or case is acting as an intermediary between the human and the bottle.

comment May a male use a female for massage or vice versa?
If you can provide some sources for your assertions (because they are stated with definitive confidence), that would greatly improve the quality of your answer. It also help to improve the quality if you could explain the reasoning (from your sources) to rule out the concerns raised above about Negi'ah.

Malka, welcome to Mi Yodeya! Thank you for your answer; if you have a source, it would improve the quality of your answer. I'm sure that's what @DoubleAA meant to say.
