How do you know what the rabbi was trying to say such that s/he was wrong?

comment Source for Categorization of Matter
@ray Why couldn't "the yeshiva upstairs" have used categories that Eliyahu would understand because he read Aristotle? Also, who really cares what "the yeshiva upstairs" thinks? Torah is going on down here whether they like it or not.

What are you trying to say? נשמת means 'soul of' and נשמתה means 'her soul'. I don't know what you want to say...

@YaacovDeane Until you cite any other opinion, this seems like a good answer.

comment Is a triple shvus allowed?
@Shokhet It sounds like he's asking about a "shvus dishvus with an added shvus". Your case is potentially an example of that category.

@IsaacMoses Why not just edit "floss" into that question? The answers discuss it.

comment Is it permitted to face a Chanukiah when davenning?
Similarly, if the Chanukiah is in the east and you are just praying east or it's in the north and you live south of Jerusalem. I don't know why you need to bring in your first two paragraphs.

I find preparing wicks earlier helps them burn better as they have a chance to absorb the oil fully.

comment Are Noahides obligated in the commandment of Yibum?
Which blog? Can you link to them? I see no reason think Noahides are commanded in Yibbum. Are you sure "marriages of consanguinity" are still prohibited to Noahides after the consanguinity is lost (ie. divorce/widow)? What about the prohibition on marrying your wife's sister?

comment Why study non-practical tractates of Talmud?
@Leyzer I know what you said, and I'm telling you that I don't follow because if your goal is to learn Halacha Lemaaseh then Talmud is not helpful, and if your goal is not to learn Halacha Lemaaseh then what's wrong with Zevachim?

Apparently R H Schachter said one could make a Siyum on Gittin after skipping the weird parts of the 7th perek.

comment Yarmulke fell off outside of the eiruv?
@msh210 1) I meant he can now assuming he could to begin with 2a) Standing still is a full hanacha. 2b) A human is part of the reshut he's standing in. Otherwise you could carry over your head because it's ten tefachim off the ground.

@eliyah Again, the fact that we don't have a right to stop them doesn't mean what they're doing is of any value whatsoever.
