comment Answering amen to netilat yadayim after your own brocha
@BackseatChazan Obviously after you've washed (assuming you are washing before you say a bracha). Perhaps since it's exactly the same bracha you need to say, it's considered sufficiently on topic.

comment Chapter Endings while Leining Megillot
I'm not sure you can use recordings of individual chapters as proof. Maybe they just finish that way because it's the end of the relevant section.

comment Required to check the Arba Minim before the mitzvah?
Why can't black spots appear as the Etrog gets older? It ripens even after the "mashgiach" checked it.

comment Minhag and Kulot
Why not just ask your rabbi for a ruling? Avodat Mechona wasn't even around until relatively recently. No one has an old tradition about it.

@ray The point is at every scale everything behaves somewhat like we think of waves and somewhat like we think of particles. Changing scale doesn't change the thing.
