@BubbaMetzia Even this wouldn't help you on a spaceship as a mikva cannot be in a vessel but must be in the ground.

comment Lubavitch not sleeping in a Sukka?
@Curiouser The Rama (OC 640:4) mentions fear of bandits attacking you in the Sukkah as a reason to be exempt due to mitztair.

comment What would have happened if the sin of the spies never occurred?
revisionist-history? I'm not sure why this sort of question is useful. What would have happened if X also hadn't occurred?

comment Can one use potential wind power to transport on Shabbos?
Note also that if there is no hanacha in the reshus harabbim then it is not a biblical violation.

Is there wind currently blowing? If not it would seem to only be a grama.

comment Why stand for responsive T'hilim?
similar judaism.stackexchange.com/q/26625/759 People tend to stand for not so common prayers with whose messages they can directly associate because they seem more important to them, it seems to me.

comment Lubavitch not sleeping in a Sukka?
@mochinrechavim What is your proof from the Mishna Sukkah 20b? Or from Sh"A 639? And which Rambam is 3:6 because I see one that talks about Shofar not Sukkah. That Mordechai and Rama are talking about the cold, not the reasons you mentioned, and the Taz bases his leniency on Shluchei Mitzva not Mitzta'air.

comment Will Tisha B'Av be pushed off in the future?
It would not because perhaps there are other sources which you may have overlooked which discuss the future explicitly.

comment Lubavitch not sleeping in a Sukka?
How can someone not sleep for 7 days? It violates an explicit gemara (Shevuot 25a) which says it is impossible to avoid sleeping for 3 consecutive days.

comment Rollerblading on shabbas?
@HachamGabriel You said that was Keriat Shema the way you pronounce it, and I'm saying I hope you don't make that same mistake in your pronunciation. I wouldn't want you saying the wrong thing in your Keriat Shema.

comment Rollerblading on shabbas?
@HachamGabriel In the first video you link to around 0:34 he mispronounces the word ודברת as mil'eil thereby changing its tense from future to past. That is a correctable mistake when leining IMO. See also ou.org/torah/tt/5762/vayeshev62/dav.htm
