comment Learning secular topics for parnassah
The question works in theory, but in practice (at least in the professions), I don't think curtailing continuing education is a good idea. One wouldn't remain competitive that way. Additionally, there are precious few professions where one can coast and still meet his financial obligations in today's Orthodox world.

comment What does “twice in seven years” mean regarding checking mezuzos?
@ba if it's viewed as a cycle, I can check in years 2, 4, 9, 13, and 5-11 have passed with only one check.

comment What does “twice in seven years” mean regarding checking mezuzos?
@ba does it mean, then, that there should be no seven-year period without two checkings? Or is it a repeating seven-year cycle, where you might have seven years pass without a check?

comment Paying bill for aveirah already done
@msh210 yes, but it's the act that's impermissible, not the payment - no? I would think even more so with the animal, since the payment does not degrade the act any more, as opposed to the zenus.

comment Invitation to nonkosher restaurant
This is a valuable question, but you should modify it to be more general rather than personal advice - see meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/312/… -- and ask your rav!
