comment “Carrying” items without an eruv
Are there any more "primary" sources that discuss this?

comment “Carrying” items without an eruv
@msh210 I feel like the sources are still pretty narrow (head coverings and talitot), even the MB does not give a general rule for all clothing, just in that one case.

comment Removing facial hair by laser treatment (for a man)
I seem to recall that there were people that used some sort of paste to get rid of facial hair. It took off quite a bit of skin as well, but I am pretty sure it was halachically OK.

comment Making mistakes in shemone esri
@YDK Good point. I guess I should edit it to ask how many mistakes it takes until shemone esri is invalid, and then what should be done at that point.

I hear what you are saying, but I do not believe that that is correct.

comment Carrying in a partially shared apartment on Shabbat
I mean that it is all the same reshut and that that reshut is a reshut haychid, not that it is many different reshuts

comment Origin of the nine days
I hear your answer, and it makes sense, except that is mandatory, and not just meritorious. I realized when reading your answer that there was more to it, and then updated my question. Sorry for the confusion.

comment Origin of the nine days
I would understand if it really was "Whoever does more- harei ze messhubach" but my understanding is that it is mandatory. Additionally, it would seem that there are two mourning "periods." 1) laundry 2) eating meat and drinking wine. What you are mentioning only refers to the first one. Perhaps I should expand the question to note this.

@DoubleAA I think you are definitely right about it being a custom, and thanks for the edits

comment Origin of the nine days
@DoubleAA, thanks for the info, and edited. It is one thing to make it is a nice thing to do, some sort of chumra, or the like. It is a different thing to impost it on everyone (other than Sepharadim I believe, but I am not sure about that)
