comment Do I have to check my fruits and vegetables [for insects] before I put them in a smoothie?
To focus the question: would blending such fruits be considered "mevatel issur le-chatchillah," which is not permitted.

comment Ulchaparat pasha in Chazarat haShatz
Good question; at this point it's a halacha question, given that I don't (yet) know which governs this issue

comment Going into a Reform synagogue to take a test
That question is specifically not about prayer or weddings, but about non-religious functions. I would see tests as perfectly fitting that original question.

comment Best practices for well-circulating Hoshanot
My comment was a bit fatalistic, so I didn't post as an answer. In my experience nothing ad hoc has worked, and in my informal estimation the only way it would work is with actual enforced patterns, something that I have never seen and that would probably meet with resistance in many places.

comment Best practices for well-circulating Hoshanot
Traffic cops. Otherwise some people will cut in and out to make sure they get around, and others will take the path of least obvious resistance instead of maximizing use of available space, and things jam up (see also hakafos). If this had an answer we'd be able to eliminate regular traffic jams too. #humannature #fail
