comment Pronunciation of Tere ta’ame
@msh210, the only thing like that in parshat shalach (that I am aware of) is a mercha kfula, and that is a single trup (as far as I am aware in the Ashkenazi and Syrian traditions) with a sound distinct to that of two merchas.

I think its a mercha kfula (by a different name, tre meaning 2)

comment What if there's a Minyan of Aveilim?
Can't a similar question be asked about a minyan of Kohanim on Sabbat? Who gets aliyah number 3?

comment Why does a Torah have 2 poles and a Megillah have 1?
As a more practical manner the m'gila is unrolled in its entirety when it is read. This is easier with one or no poles.

It's a blessing in that you won't be attacked, not in other areas.

Good points. Does part 2 of the question make any sense, or not really?

Very interesting. Are there any other possibilities other than paranoia?
