That's the point. If you take your second option then there is nothing left. He doesn't even mention showers!

comment Is believing that God, Israel, and Torah are one Avodah Zarah?
OK I just didn't know if you meant a soul of collective Jewry or the collected souls of Jews. It sounds like the latter. (Also, I'm not getting the feeling RSZ understood much about Solar Physics :) )

Are they never told that dark dark blue is not tzniyus?

comment Taking a Shower during the Nine-Days
@SethJ He's saying it's not relevant to a large segment of world Jewry that year. That's like saying Yom Kippur doesn't occur in the spring.

comment Does an Early Shabbos mean Early Meat before Tish'a B'Av?
@IsaacMoses That's because this Teshuva is not R' Neustadt's source. GershonGold appended the listed source reference from a different statement. This answer is inaccurate.

comment Halacha and danger to life
I would open the first question, but then I'd have to close it as a dupe of this. This question is about at what point danger to life exempts one from performing a positive commandment. You don't really answer that.

comment Halacha and danger to life
If your answer is "God is in charge and just do what you are supposed to", then how do you explain the principle of Pikuach Nefesh? How do you know those who didn't work on Shabbat didn't survive because of those who did and had money to contribute to communal organizations?

@CharlesKoppelman It's either that or the Gadol in question is a Navi. Go figure.

Definitely not! Especially when both have explicit promises in the pasuk guaranteeing the Jews' safety. כל שני כתובים הבאים כאחד אין מלמדין

youre doing another thing though: you are extrapolating to all of torah from your two examples.

comment Halacha and danger to life
I guess I was thrown off by your usage of the term "built in". IAE that wasn't primarily what I was skeptical of. I suppose now that you are saying that all cases of Pikuach Nefesh exempting one from a Mitzva are individual exceptions

So you are saying that all cases of Pikuach Nefesh exempting one from a Mitzva are individual built-in exceptions...

I find your assertion that all cases of Pikuach Nefesh exempting one from a Mitzva to be individual built-in exceptions to be unsupported and unlikely.
