comment Number of Yamim Tovim that fall on Shabbos
Basically what @SethJ said: the question was spawned by my wanting to be able to say "there will be up to n days spread throughout the year like Shabbos" on interviews. My field is web development, and in some positions 24-hour on-call coverage can be an issue.

comment Permissibility of images of celestial bodies
I think it's rather stronger than an "assumption" that this prohibition is based on the worship of these objects. Also, as the OP I must object to others transparently attributing assumptions to me in edits.

comment Permissibility of images of celestial bodies
@DoubleAA the identity of which images are included in the Biblical prohibition at all is a machlokes Rishonim. Beyond that, I'm not well-versed enough in meta-halachah to know whether we ever "freeze" a Biblical prohibition based on historical considerations.

comment Tzitzis Thrown Over Shoulder = Still Wearing Them?
Thanks @jake; necessary condition had occurred to me, but there's a connotation of negation to the Hebrew word that I felt was missing.

@DoubleAA I understand this as referring to the construction, not the mode of wearing.
