comment What is the shiur for anointing on Yom Kippur?
Just to clarify, by m'chayav you mean obligated in Karet, not just Makkat Mardut or and issur aseh or something.

+1 As I recall, the Meiri holds that the Sha"tz is an exception because Kedusha constitutes a break-marker in the "first three". He is a daat yachid though IIRC.

comment Apple on Rosh HaShanah
+1 interesting. I wonder if we could somehow demonstrate that the Rema (or whoever first recorded the minhag) meant any sweet fruit when he said תפוח

comment Inflatable Mattress on Shabbos
But a bow-knot or some other non-double-knot might still be ok (ie he doesn't say this is a unique case of kosheir)?

comment Apple on Rosh HaShanah
Except Tosfot Shabbat 86a (and I think the academic consensus) understand that תפוח in the context of Shir haShirim is not an apple but rather a citrus. Moreover, Midrash Rabbah to that pasuk says that the תפוח ripens in May whereas apples are fall fruit. So the understanding in your link seems a little misplaced, or at least possibly based on an anachronistic translation.
