Maybe they mean their generation could be ikvisa demishicha if they act properly

comment Why hold the second loaf unwrapped?
@msh210 Perhaps. Though the Shulchan Aruch does not use that language.

comment Why hold the second loaf unwrapped?
@msh210 You said "merely holding the other". How do you intend to hold it without any of your 10 fingers?

@Menachem mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt08a02.htm#19 it says he wore a small coat. You know what they say about small coats...

comment Is free will limited to humans?
The question said "Do other beings besides humans have free will?" not "Where can I find discussion about if things besides humans have free will?" The former option asks for opinions, the latter asks for citations. See this meta post for more about how to cite external material.

comment While playing a computer game, may I “worship” one of the game's “gods” to help me win?
However, murder needs an actual human to kill whereas Avoda Zara could be accomplished by worshiping an invisible foreign god.

You referenced three different opinions. I want to know what they say. You can embed a quote or summarize; I don't care. But the question asked for opinions not citations.

See Tosefta Yevamot 8:1 that a mamzer from a levi doesn't get maaser.

comment Is the midrash about the moon and sun being the same size intended literally?
@Menachem No. Eggs. The fact that there is a variety of sizes is not new. The Mishna (quoting post-Churban authorities) already clarified that we use the average size. The only people who claim olives shrunk are those who think that the sizes of olives and eggs are related by definition. This is fairly certainly disproven. Eggs on the other hand are directly related in one way to reviit which is also related differently to Amah, hence a discrepancy. I'm quite confident eggs didn't shrink either, but there is somewhat more to talk about than with olives.

@avrohom yes. We do that all the time with most types of treifa which we don't check for because of rov. (Assuming rov applies here. I'm just saying there is nothing bedieved about using rov)
