comment Are males with older sisters “firstborn” for the purposes of the Fast of the Firstborn?
Can you throw in a source for your last line? (Shouldn't be too hard to find. Isn't there a whole series of Mishnayot about that in Bechorot?)

@Alex Ahh I see. That's what's I get for not following up and reading it inside. Note also the Tosfot he cites hebrewbooks.org/…

@Alex Hmmm so those sound more like the coincidence track. (Obviously intentional in the grander sense, but not an a priori rule.)

Re 2: is that standard among other Chassidic circles or is that particular to Chabad? If the latter, do you know why that is?

comment Bicurim from something planted in a pot
I haven't read through it, but it seems the Mishne Lamelech on that Rambam might be relevant.

Is this true for Ashkenazim or Sephardim or both or someone else?

comment Levi does not want to wash Kohen's hands
@shulem Aside from the weakness of learning a general rule from Para Adumma, the least understood mitzva, it doesn't explain why a Kohein can't wash his own hands, as he is 'holier' than a Levi. It also doesn't explain why we don't have rules about certain people washing others' hands for regular hand washing before bread or in the morning.
