If I make a vow to not eat pizza, what can I not eat?
On the one hand, it would seem that bread with sauce and cheese on it is called pizza, as that is what they give you in a pizza shop when you order a slice of pizza.
However, it is implied otherwise in the bagel-bites commercial song:
@HodofHod I don't know if we can get custom badges, but you could add one to your gravatar. :-)
@YEZ there's no time limit. It'll happen. Coincidentally, I just got Famous Question over on Travel for a question I asked in 2012 -- I'm not active there and had no idea the question was that popular! (I don't remember when its Notable Question came in, but a while ago.)
It's unlikely that you'll have to wait 2 years for 2 more views, though. :-)
@GeminiMan Thanks. When I set up these weeks' community bulletin items, there were no tzav-tagged questions, so I didn't put it in the bulletin. Now thereare, so I've just added it. Alas, that removes meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/q/1994 from the bulletin.
@GeminiMan Yeah. There are so many related tags that I figured it shouldn't link only to purim-tagged questions: the wiki lists them.
Come to think of it, I guess we don't need the Zachor tag linked to in the bulletin: it's in the list in that wiki. And removing it would make room in the bulletin for meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/q/1994.
@YEZ It's a definite rule - I know almost for certain now that an answer which takes me about a minute's work will gain me a fair amount of rep., but if it takes me an hour of work I'll get very little. It's happened many times already.
Sometimes my "quickie" answers get votes because the reason they were quick is that they're verifiable -- so I looked something up and voters confirmed that it's correct. Often in the answers that involve more work, that work comes in laying out a chain of reasoning, which may or may not be correct.
@YEZ the answer to a great many voting/view/etc puzzles is "wait longer". I sometimes get stray upvotes on very old posts, ones that haven't been active in months or sometimes years, so somebody's looking at them.
I apologise in advance if this is not the place to ask this question.
Is "reputation scoring" against the spirit of Pirkei Ovos 4 (5) "Rabbi Tzaddok would say: Do not make the Torah a crown to magnify yourself with, ...."
My degree is in topology (not homotopy theory, though), so I've mentioned it to people many times. I've had many people ask me "isn't that marking mountains on maps?" (topography) but never before topiary. :-)
Someone once came to R' YB Soloveitchik to get a mesorah in shechita. He asked him "whats an ogeres (which is a nick in the knife)?" He answered "a dried fig." So he asked "OK then what's a grogeres (a dried fig)?" and he answered "A girl over the age of 13" so he asked him "OK what's a bogeres (A girl over the age of 13)?" to which the guy replied "I came here to get a mesora in shechita, not for a test on kol haTorah kula!"
Seriously, please promote Purim - Mi Yodeya? (s.tk/miyodeya) however you can. Many people will be shopping for Mishloach Manot supplies on Sunday, and the more of them that have heard of our stuff by then, the better.
@IsaacMoses Morse doesn't distinguish lowercase, but S.TK/MIYODEYA doesn't work. The reason I tell you this is to stop you from telegraphing the URL to your friends and family, something I know you were planning to do.
@DoubleAA I thought everyone said 'haftorah', being that I am very parochial, so I thought 'haftarah' was a mistake, but I see from wikipedia that this is only the Ashkenazi pronunciation - Go us!
@DoubleAA On a diff. subject - this question of mine judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/36117/… is getting an unusually large number of hits, and it's not a particularly unusual question - is there any way of knowing why?
