comment Early maariv on 2nd day Yom Tov
@Yahu Friday after Shkiya before Tzeit is Safek Yom Safek Layla. So using a cell phone (let's call that a derabanan) should be a safek derabanan and muttar. Or at least it seems completely comparable to doing Hotzaat Karmelit Bein HaShemashot at the end of (either first or second day) Yom Tov.

comment Early maariv on 2nd day Yom Tov
"For a Dirabanan, if the benefit will be, or could very well be during bein hashemashos, then carrying in a Karmelis is permitted." Why would that be, if nightfall may be any moment? How is that different from just doing a full fledged issur Derabanan on Friday evening after sunset?

@Yahu Yes, actually. Not to mention all the people that I know who don't hold of Eruvin on Deoraysas. Not to mention how few (if any) communities check their Eruvin before a weekday Yom Tov.

My point is no one avoids walking with a stroller during Bein HaShemashot. There is clearly something missing in your logic.

@Yahu So I can't carry my key from Shul to my house in order to let myself in during Bein HaShemashot between YTs? What about just pushing a stroller on a walk in the park? Who has ever heard of such a Chumra?

comment Is it permitted that male person to have feminine job? And otherwise?
The same prohibition as a man not wearing a dress (לא תלבד גבר etc.) also applies to looking at a mirror. Perhaps doing a "woman job" is like looking in a mirror.

comment Birchas HaTorah - everyone was awake all night
The RAE trick might only work if you didn't say Maariv (including Ahavat Olam) the night before.

comment What are the halachic considerations regarding davening after staying up all night on Shavuot?
Is your wife obligated in Birkot haTorah Mideorayta that she can be motziah you? Also, why did you not include the perhaps optimal option of saying it after you nap that day??

Note that there are plenty of opinions that some of these brachot can be said even without having slept (eg. judaism.stackexchange.com/a/8121/759). Being machmir for the Mishna Berura's position has become quite popular recently, but it is not the only one.

@hazoriz I hope you're not assigning any significant weight to a random internet poster's musings.

When exactly was free will instituted? Don't they need free will to sin?

comment What are “secrets of Torah” according to the Rambam?
@yEz From your link "the Rambam states in the introduction (and throughout) Moreh Nevuchim that in his book he is revealing the secrets of מעשה בראשית and מעשה מרכבה as he understands them"

(@Fred Just to note that on Tisha b'Av afternoon some communities recite Shuva not Dirshu.)

comment Why is a Haftorah recited on fast days?
@Fred More likely related to Megilla 30b. Not reciting Aneinu in the morning is a custom in only some communities and of relatively recent vintage.
