comment Declaration of Intent
Are you asking about those specific instances for a reason? Is your question meant to be broader? Do you have a reason to make the leaps you are making between Barukh she'amar and Ma Tovu and between lulav and Erev Pesach?

comment Tearing paper towels on Shabbat
@sta no, I do not believe wiping up a spill is on par with eating in terms of "need". At least, I've never considered it so, but perhaps a more senior and seasoned Halachic expert might disagree with me.

comment How would you describe the literary style of Torah?
"Early Biblical." Is that not what you're looking for?

comment Using same dish washer for meat and dairy?
First, if you're Sephardic.

comment Drinking wine at the seder while leaning
I think that, if your understanding of the Halachah makes a simple task like drinking impossible, then perhaps your understanding is flawed, or you're putting too much effort into your technique.

Then maybe you should ask an ill person how they do it. I mean that seriously, not sarcastically.

comment Drinking wine at the seder while leaning
@private, I've never experienced difficulty with this basic task. Perhaps a photo of your leaning "style" will come in handy with answering this question.

comment Buying kitniyot during Pesach
Why would this be any different than buying apples on Pesah?

comment Shemona Ushloshim Umeya - mi yodeya?
@DoubleAA, it is to Yaacov. Doesn't make it interesting to anyone else, but not reason to make fun.

comment Do Neanderthals had soul?
@IQAndreas, I think this question is off-topic because it has nothing to do with Judaism. But it is not off-topic because it doesn't fit the Meta rules of the Christianity site. We are our own site with our own standards. (Still off-topic, but not for the reason you listed.)

comment Machsor Tom. I - Prayer book?
I've edited your answer to make it less conversational and more appropriate for this site. This is not your personal email exchange (no offense])‌​. But welcome to Mi Yodeya. Can you provide more information relevant to the question? What does Ashkenazim have to do with it, and what does the numbering mean?

comment Why do I care what time Bnei Melachim (sons of kings) rise in the morning?
Fair point. Is that the answer?

comment Why do I care what time Bnei Melachim (sons of kings) rise in the morning?
That's very circular. A quarter of the day is three hours, so we define a quarter of the day by judging that privileged members of society rise at three hours? Why are we at a quarter of the day?

So you're saying the time has nothing to do with the practices of these people? This is just a mnemonic device to remember three hours?

comment Why do I care what time Bnei Melachim (sons of kings) rise in the morning?
So I'm supposed to structure my day around the practices of the laziest members of the most privileged segment of society as was common 2000 years ago? There's nothing deeper than that?

comment Is it appropriate for a Gentile to attend and/or participate in a Seder?
Beyond the first half of the first sentence, I'm not sure what any of this has to do with the question asked.

comment Status of food that does not contain wheat
This doesn't address my question, and now you've got two versions of your question posted. Editing doesn't mean adding more things you want answered with a header of "EDIT". It means changing the question to ask what you want to know and remove confusing stream of consciousness information only loosely related to the point being asked.

comment Status of food that does not contain wheat
@DoubleAA, honetly, I think the OP wants to ask a different question than the one that was posed. I'd just like it rewritten to clarify what is meant so we don't have to guess.

comment Status of food that does not contain wheat
Does it contain barley? Spelt? Oats? Rye?
