comment Do men on the women's side count toward a minyan?
Given that this was a chol hamoed morning (and a number of years ago), I would be entirely unsurprised if no women attended that minyan. Is there some reason that you think this isn't the obvious assumption, @DoubleAA?

@DoubleAA, is that a joke? If not, a source please.

comment How did Rivkah give Yackov Eisav's clothing? Isn't borrowing without permission tantamount to stealing?
This actually prompts one of my favorite comments of Rashi. (paraphrasing) So Rivkah had Esav's clothes. Why? He wanted her to wash them. But he had wives!? He didn't trust his wives to wash his clothes. (end of rashi) I think that would suggest he was living there/dependant upon his parents, as much as the college students whose behavior this resembles.

comment Talmud Study, Where to start
It sounds like you can read Hebrew but have no understanding of it. I'd suggest learning Hebrew before beginning Talmud study.

comment Can a Sukkah have all-glass walls?
@DoubleAA, at 1/3 of a tefach it is a wide string or rope. If it is seven tefachim wide, it is either an immense rope that could hold a ship's anchor or it is a cloth wall.

comment While sleeping in a sukkah, are you exempt from prayer?
Continuing in what I see as the tongue-in-cheek tone of the question: He should dwell in the sukkah as he dwells in his house. If at home he sleeps through shacharit, he should do the same in the sukkah.

@DoubleAA, use strings each of which is at least 1/3 of a tefach wide, and then measure very carefully.

@CharlesKoppelman, it was of course intentional, but not essential.

My experience with a lantern as Shalom described has also been positive.
