    Often, we find ourselves in situations where the only people who know the answer to our questions are people who are biased. What can we do to ensure that we get accurate information? Here are some examples gleaned from this very website:

    1. You go to buy a kallah bracelet and you ask the proprietor what “normal people” are buying these days.

    2. You go to a lawyer to discuss whether you need a lawyer for a particular transaction or potential lawsuit.

    3. You go to a kashrus organization to find out whether a certain food needs a hashgacha.

    4. You ask a poseik whether something is a shailah.

    1. Ask in a hardware store

    2. Ask popa

    3) Ask a poseik

    4) Ask popa


    We ask people here if they think we’re normal


    The same with clothing, Shaitel etc


    Do you think you could make the title more conceptually oblique?


    How about “shatnez experts” deciding whether items needs to be checked for shatnez?


    You ask on YWN whether something needs to be asked to Popa.

    See, many people think that emotional disorders are caused by chemical imbalances, but Popa thinks they are caused by Informational Imbalances.


    The answer is you have to ask some one normal.

    Now let us define normal = Like me 🙂
