A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

revised Can we argue with gedolim when we are sure that we are right?
their, there. "Ultimately ... also" read oddly to me, as if the sentence was leading up to saying that the authority of the posek was the *deciding* factor, but then pulled back from that. I left the two factors equal. (There are times I'm glad my edits are only suggestions.)

comment Is is wrong to be racist?
You have described a racist belief system. You now insist that it is not actually racist, but refuse to give any reasons or evidence to back up that assertion. Vague appeals to "nuance" are meaningless.

comment Does one make a Bracha when seeing the Pope?
@J.C.Salomon. There does seen to be a popular conception that princes serve under kings, but this is not necessarily true. Both Monaco and Andorra are principalities, ruled by a princes who are monarchs in their own right. (Andorra is a bit of a special case, mind you.)

@Nafkamina. Ah, so it's nuanced racism. So that's all right, then, I suppose.

Sirens are traditionally bird-like, though I believe a fish-like variant exists in some traditions.

comment Can a man who has undergone a gender change give his wife a Get?
You appear to think that trans status necessarily has something to do with surgery. You are wrong.

comment Where can I find the Zohar in french or english?
Not quite a dupe, @DoubleAA. That one wants English online. This one is broader: English or French; physical or digital. An answer to the other would be an acceptable answer to this too, though.
