Sources. Or lack thereof.

@doubleaa Ah, I hadn't considered that, but it would make for an interesting rebuttal.

@doubleaa, I don't understand your question.

comment What are the limits of “music”?
I personally think it should be forbidden all the time. But that's a matter of taste.

comment At a non-kosher restaurant, is sliced raw fish kosher?
I'd also like to point out that in many cities it is possible to order Kosher food from Kosher restaurants to be served at a non-Kosher restaurant. This is very common at business meetings, etc.

@DoubleAA, that's how I read the Gemara. Hence my comment.

comment Why was Shimshon viewed positively?
@Menachem, I think it's pretty clear from the Pesukim that he distanced himself from the population (that's kind of part of the question, isn't it?). The "so that they would not be punished for his actions" piece is interesting, though, if you can find that source.

I hate to be that guy, but this seems more like a comment, albeit a lengthy one, than an answer.

No offense, Adam, but this seems a little out there. The community must find it intriguing, but I'm just surprised that it's managed to stay open.

I'm very surprised that this question is even open. What does it even mean? @msh210?

comment Can there be a Minyan of lepers?
I assumed lomdus was more about Shakla VeTarya. Also, I forgot it existed. :-\
