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.

comment Is a Jew allowed to participate on Christianity.SE?
@IsaacMoses. There's a rather different atmosphere on Christianity SE than there is here, and the posts on meta about the secular nature of the site are actually taken quite seriously.

@GershonGold. There are lots of different versions of the werewolf myth.

revised Why twins? Why not just Yaakov?
Capitalisation and grammar. I'm not sure what "sadeek" is supposed to mean, and Google is unhelpful.

comment Bris vs. critical thinking?
@AviD. I'd say that performing any form of elective surgery or body modifications on an infant is just morally wrong. I'm also very uncomfortable with inducting babies into a religion (I'm not a fan of infant baptism, for example). Circumcision combines two ethically dodgy practices in one easy bundle. I'm not impressed.

comment Is the passage describing an approximation of pi or is it one of the miracles of Bais Hamikdash?
Inner diameter; outer circumference? Or a curved in lip on the bowl with the circumference measured around the middle of the bowl, and the diameter across the top? Frankly, I've never seen the problem here.

Assume that I'm (a) a feminist, (b) non-religious, and (c) sometimes quite sarcastic. You might then get it.

comment Looking for more information about a story of positive atheism/heresy
Atheists generally do not accept this point of view. Made me giggle.

Which is, of course, why only boys are circumcised.

@AviD. You're assuming facts not in evidence, such as that Collin's objection is on medical grounds. It may be that Collin does not want to override his child's consent and right to self-determination.

Linkification. Some minor grammar tweaks.

comment Is it proper for a man to hold open a door for a woman?
It's never occurred to me to "open the door for a woman" specifically. I hold doors open if there's someone walking behind me.

comment What are the issues with wearing gloves on Shabbos?
So just do what parents of small children do: attach the gloves to each other by a string passed up the sleeves of the coat. Doesn't everyone do that?

Improved formatting. (Inserted two spaces to create a line break. A couple of other incidental changes.)

comment Is it acceptable to use software which incidentally blocks ads?
@msh210. In other words, Ad blocking software is perfectly acceptable, with no doubt at all, therefore software which only incidentally blocks ads is absolutely definitely acceptable and this isn't an interesting question. Am I interpreting that correctly?

I assume that makes sense to someone. Necessary context.
