#109640 Innocent people don't need lawyers

Posted by Indigo on 06 May 2016 - 02:21 PM in News & Politics

Investigators say 24-year-old Julianna Talevski is the registered owner of the 2006 Ford Fusion seen fleeing the LCBO parking lot at Ellesmere Road and Victoria Park Avenue after two people were shot to death on April 29.

Police do not know if Talevski was driving her car at time, saying she has only communicated with investigators through her lawyer.

"Innocent people traditionally do not need lawyers," Sgt. Gary Giroux said in a media conference at Toronto Police Headquarters on Friday.

Pardon? Innocent people dont need lawyers and if you think you do you must not be innocent? Seriously???

Why is lifrosh, to commentary, the same root as lifrosh, to separate?

#109636 The Meiri

Posted by Indigo on 05 May 2016 - 06:10 AM in Halacha

They were available but ignored? Purposefully? Accidentally?

#109635 Cutting Nails on Thursday

Posted by Indigo on 05 May 2016 - 06:09 AM in Halacha

Cutting nails is an incredibly lucky halacha.

#109626 The Meiri

What what the shitah mekubetzet? Reform? Modern Orthodox?

#109623 The Meiri

Posted by Indigo on 02 May 2016 - 04:33 PM in Halacha

so why does the amateur brain surgeon the chazon ish claim otherwise?

#109615 The Meiri

Posted by Indigo on 01 May 2016 - 08:11 AM in Halacha

Is it actually true that the Meiri was lost for centuries and only recently rediscovered?

#109614 kosher lepasch food

Posted by Indigo on 01 May 2016 - 08:02 AM in Food

I had an observation on pesach. I was wondering why pesach food is so crappy. Meaning bought food. Then it dawned on me that all KLP food is either heimish or Israeli. That is to say, normal companies don't sell pesach crackers or tea or potato chips or chocolate  or anything else people buy. With a very few exceptions, like coke and pepsi that have pesach runs. But normal companies don't make KLP food. That's why everything is crap, it's all heimish or Israeli.

#109611 kitnyot and milk

Posted by Indigo on 26 April 2016 - 02:21 PM in Halacha

i think with milk, the question is if something accidentally fell in. or it was manufactured on chametz equipment. but with kitniyot, the issue is if something was davka added. in which case we are machmir, even if it would theoretically be batel, b/c it was added for a reason eg. taste. If a drop of corn syrup fell into a vat of milk before pesach, we wouldn't care. But if you specifically added corn syrup sweetener to milk, we would care.

#109608 Neshama yeteira

Do you have neshama yeteirah on yom tov?
Why do we not do besamim neither motzei shabbat yt not motzei yt?

#109607 Can someone please sue to get the "dairy equipment" designation back?

Posted by Indigo on 24 April 2016 - 08:13 PM in Halacha

Is it that the OU said they don't believe in it, or they said it was confusing to ppl? I heard it was the latter.

Certifying agencies promote ignorance as a value. It isn't that DE is confusing. It is that rabbis want to zealously guard information and keep people stupid.

The guy who killed Kitty Genovese

#109551 Kotel Compromise: Mixed-Gender Worship

Posted by Indigo on 22 March 2016 - 12:41 PM in Israel

Does their proposed birchos kohanos not anger their sincere members?

I think it does, but they've had their own internal squabbles and breakaway group.
This might be a certain faction asserting itself to feel relevant.

#109548 Idiots assigning reasons for terrible tragedies

Posted by Indigo on 22 March 2016 - 09:53 AM in Jewish Culture

yeah, at least if one of the drivers were a woman

#109535 Reciting the Shema in your sleep

Posted by Indigo on 06 March 2016 - 01:06 PM in Halacha

Are you yotzei ANY mitzvah if you are asleep? Even sukkah (if someone carries you in there)?

yishuv eretz yisrael?

#109527 Rabbinic will > halachic way

Posted by Indigo on 03 March 2016 - 07:20 AM in Halacha

I rest my case. He says explicitely that there are cases where rabbis don't investigate objectively but rather figure out how to reach the conclusion they feel is correct


#109523 Shabbos reading material

This is really interesting in the staet of ultraorthodoxy in 1860's Hungary.

#109494 Lakewood homeless abuse

Posted by Indigo on 02 February 2016 - 03:58 PM in Jewish News

I will respectfully disagree with Snag hamechubad on this point.
Apparently the man agreed to be filmed and humiliated for payment. It can't be illegal to humiliate someone who agrees to it for payment.
Although on the other hand, the man may have been bullied so it isn't totally of his free will plus I am guessing there are some mental health issues. Bullying is increasingly illegal.

That said, it is certainly a menuvaldik thing to have done.

#109488 Mezuza

Posted by Indigo on 01 February 2016 - 03:45 PM in Mishnah & Gemara

but as a general rule, a person commanded to do something could in theory do it. you can't be given a command you can't do.

for example, if you are commanded to wear tzitzit, you are kosher to tie tzitzit. but a woman is commanded to have a mezuza but can't actually write one if she built a doorway.

#109487 Mezuza

Posted by Indigo on 01 February 2016 - 03:34 PM in Mishnah & Gemara

hmm. Is it really pasul if a woman writes the mezuzah?

I believe so yes. it's in the gemara. it's not like a megillah that you could argue about.

#109475 Mezuza

Posted by Indigo on 27 January 2016 - 07:13 AM in Mishnah & Gemara

How can women be obligated in mezuzah and yet if they write a mezuzah for their own door it is pasdul?
