@user6641, maybe it's to show the reverse of your (apparent) assumption is true.

comment Why didn't Yaakov divorce Leah?
A friend drafted a really interesting piece on this. I told him it was too far out, and I think I inadvertently discouraged him from posting it on his blog. Gonna reach out, Beli Neder, and try to get him to post it. If his theory is right, however, the question would really be, why didn't Ya'akov divorce Rachel?

Interesting question, but I think you're searching for more than you're going to find here.

@user6641, I cannot disagree with DoubleAA here. I think the point is that the midwife's actions make a really interesting story but do not mandate the interpretation of firstbornitude in Halachah.

@Jake, also, more than likely, the Chabad Shaliah to Wyoming cares about Halav Stam.

comment Buying non-Kosher food for home Emergency Kits
@Jake, what about controversial Hechsherim, especially for meat - ala Hebrew National or others? I imagine a dried HN salami might last quite a while.

How's that a circle? It's a straight line (albeit in reverse, the way you've stated it).

@DoubleAA, then it wouldn't be a lizard. How's that for an answer? If you discovered a scaly, cold-blooded creature that chewed its cud and had split hooves, you'd have discovered a new Class of animal.

I'd have to agree with @IsaacMoses about the phenotype of birds. Also, as a general rule, birds of prey are on the bad list.

comment How can an 'Eved own an 'Eved?
@DoubleAA, back to your original question, at the very least, I'd expect him to have to forward his earnings to his owner, since he is, after all, supposed to be earning money for him.

@DoubleAA, got time to go down the Tosafoth rabbit hole? I'm not sure I do.
