+1. @baby, who authored the Targum? Is this based on anything else we can source?

comment Can you use algae, water plants (e.g. water lillies), hydroponics or fungi for schach?
I honestly don't understand the background/basis of the question. If you think it's so, then it's not a question. What makes you think it isn't so? And if it isn't so, what makes you suspect, as you seem to, that there may yet be something wrong with these specific forms of vegetation?

comment Buying pasul arba minim or non-arba minim for your small child
@DoubleAA, I think it's fine. You don't have to rely on Clint's claimed expertise for Pesak, but it is relevant enough to indicate that he's at least considered this and has some experience with it. I wouldn't trust Ben's Tallit Shop's proprietor to Pasken on my Tzitzis, but I'd at least accept his answer about what he says people actually do and what his shop recommends to customers (which would, presumably, include rabbis).

comment Should shma be read in the special trop?
And why do you assume Shema' needs to be read with any trop?

comment Should shma be read in the special trop?
Isn't the trop for the day used for the unique readings for the day? On R"H that might encompass all the public readings (maybe). But on Simhath Torah it is only for some of the readings. On 9 Av there are some parts read in "Eicha Trop" and some not. On Purim, similarly. Why would you assume that this would fit that category of special reading?
