I would like to note that January 5 2010 was a Tuesday. This was not actually posted on Shabbos.

comment What's the deal with all the washings?
What I said was that for washing to be effective in terms of Taharah it needs to be either in a valid mikvah or poured from a complete unbroken vessel. This is clear from the Mishnah that I referenced above. The law about a vessel is in Yadayim 1:2.

comment What is the difference between dati, chasidish, and charedi?
The culture in the US is certainly different, I say as a Chasid with a job. Few in my community study in Kollel for more than a year or two. In Israel it is different. As for "joining the army is viewed as if you are abandoning the Torah" I must disagree with you.

comment Was “correcting” left-handed children something traditionally done by Jews?
If so, that would strengthen the point. "correcting" a lefty to make him a righty was clearly not preferred if in this case he did the exact opposite.

comment Does a fathers obligation to teach his sons a parnassah extend to his daughters too?
A woman is not required to stay at home. Neither is she prohibited from working. There are examples in the Gemara of women engaging in commerce.

comment Does a fathers obligation to teach his sons a parnassah extend to his daughters too?
Actually, as I said above, the Gemara and the Pasuk make it clear that the obligation to marry off your children applies to both sons and daughters. The obligation to teach a Parnassah is learned out from a Passuk comparing it to the obligation to marry off your children. It is not at all clear to me that this should apply only to sons.

Denver is also a good staging area with lots of nearby National parks and wilderness areas.
