comment Does amirah L'akum apply to robots?
what @DoubleAA said. If we really want to go sci-fi, the question could spill out into "is a sentient android considered human for the purposes of agency in the Torah". It must be Friday.

comment Cold-brew coffee on Shabbos
@sam well, that's the question: is there any melachah here. Apparently there's no problem brewing tea, but that is only steeped for a short time. Could it be dash?

comment Cold-brew coffee on Shabbos
I explicitly excluded straining from the question. Based on your feedback, I removed reference to the press.

comment Why should one have marital relations as if forced by a demon?
It was clear to me in my own chasan class, as well as a reinforcement session I had with another rav later, who was a talmid of R' Henkin, that I was not encouraged to follow this halachah. I still don't understand what the fact of it being in SA is actually supposed to mean.
