You might have more luck finding the bracha for Bread Kugel.

comment Which pasuk in Tanach has the most letters?
Yes, that is correct, but since UTF-8 Hebrew takes two bytes per char minimum (assuming no nekudos) I'm pretty sure you'd go over 128 characters, so you need the extra byte anyway. A temp table can be a concern, but are you really ever going to sort alphabetically by the first letter of a pasuk? Otherwise it's not going to be an issue. For bible-codes you need a totally different data structure, not strings.

Isn't a shofar essentially a trumpet?

comment Cold-brew coffee on Shabbos
Also, if this is the case why would anyone permit tea? You can soak tea leaves in cold water and make tea - yet even hot water is permitted! (By some, I don't do it personally.)

comment Problem of Ribis in giving loan in order to give Tzedeka
Maybe I'm missing something, but how is the first scenario anything like ribis? All the rich person is doing is obligating himself to pay 100 shekels. The back and forth of the physical money is meaningless. Is the poor person perhaps not collecting this money for himself? (But if so, why specify "poor"?)

comment Can one resume praying if interrupted when not in a minyan
You should clarify what part of the prayer you were interrupted in, and from where you are thinking of restarting. Certainly you would not start over from the very beginning.

What would you do with the stamp otherwise? Send it back to them? Toss it?

Why wait 10 minutes till you go home to continue praying? Continue as soon as you reach the shelter.

comment How is shechitah done without machinery?
Cows and bulls were not common animals back them (although obviously they existed). Sheep and goats were much more common, and are smaller. On top of that cows are much larger today than they used to be.

comment Why is the shtreimel worn balanced atop the head?
It might be for comfort - they get quite hot, so wearing them higher they cover less of the head.

@SethJ You have my permission to pick any of the questions you think I might be asking, and answer it. So I don't know the exact specific detail I'm asking, but the general question is, I hope, clear.
