comment Can one practice their Leining on Tisha Be'av?
@Salmononius2 To learn them more than one would at davening, I understand. I'm talking about learning at the same level.

@Salmononius2 And are you not supposed to have kavana when you daven? If you're saying it you can understand it and think about it. This is generally called "learning".

@Fred (For a fun question: Sefardim read Shuva on Tisha b'Av afternoon. A few years ago my Nakh perek-yomi cycle reached Hoshea 14 on Tisha b'Av. Can I (Ashkenazi) learn it?)

@Fred That is the (bizarre) simple read. So should we derive from this that everyone besides the reader should also space-out / cover their ears during leining at Mincha? Why is something permitted for some people and not others?

comment What to remove from a generic chumash to get only the letters as found in the torah scroll?
@AniYodea Do you have any idea where they are? I don't. Maybe every column has one. Or two. Or three. How do you allow for a small margin or error? Even one letter off ruins the whole ELS.

@AniYodea It's stupid because the Talmud already tells us we don't know how many letters there are in the Torah because we don't know all the matres lectionis. (Even one extra letter can ruin everything!) If you have a Mesorah from before that time about a relevant ELS code, fine. Otherwise, go do something productive.

@AniYodea You should use whatever text was used by the 'discoverer' of that ELS 'code'. Other texts won't necessarily work. This is the main reason why ELS codes are stupid. Unless you're doing this as a programming exercise, I would encourage you to find something useful to do with your time.

@AniYodea "best for bible codes" Depends what your searching for :) Your link was probably using some other text (likely Minchat Shai's) to make its count.

@AniYodea Sefaria is probably a very accurate representation of the Leningrad Codex. Is there a specific other text of the Torah you are looking for?

This is quite plausible (the example you bring is accurate). Are you sure the total is 304850?

comment Havdalah if you have to eat or drink on Tisha B'Av that comes out on Sunday
@Fred RAE doesn't sound so sure, especially given that this night is like Purim in that he has to read something (cf. Taz 566).

comment Prohibition of Meat and Wine on the 9th of Av
There is a prohibition at the Seudat Mafseket. The Yerushalmi calls the Seudat Mafseket "Seudat Tisha b'Av" so some have learned that were there to be a meal on Tisha b'Av it would have the same rules, and we just practice the prohibition early out of necessity. Actually I feel like this was the Brisker Rav's point. Could it be you have the story backwards?

Do they have a character marking parshat hashavua breaks? Or sefer breaks?
