the way I remember it, ambush, AOB, and ICOT got it. I think it was originally in community magazine.
yossi z., I like these logic ones. any more?May 26, 2009 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #1068523squeakParticipant
6) It IS possible that they both went down the same chimney and one stayed clean while the other got dirty. The first one wiped all the soot onto his own face and clothes on his way down, so that the second one came through clean. Once they both arrived and saw one was clean and the other dirty, they had a stira. Is this a chimney that makes one dirty or is it a chimney that does not make one dirty? They realized that this could not be immediately resolved and that they needed to wait for the “kosuv hashlishi” to be “machri’a beineihem”. Unfortunately, chimney flues are very narrow so it is not likely that anyone else will be able to fit down it after them. Therefore, TeikuMay 26, 2009 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm #1068524
Excellent drosho/pshat!May 26, 2009 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #1068525
icot is right actually
nice drosho squeakMay 28, 2009 12:39 am at 12:39 am #1068526
squeak- I have a poshiter Teretz- Lichoirah pshat is that the chimney Be’etzem makes you dirrty BUT since it’s work already affected one of them- a.k.a DF therefore according to your pshat now it’s potential has changed into a non-dirty making chimney because the soot has been wiped off but that was only due to the fact that DF had gone down it. So as I said the real potential of the chimney is to make you dirty but DF is being Meakev that potential which doesn’t change the Metzius…

The reason why one is clean is because he said perek shira for 40 days in a row as a segulah for staying clean 😉May 31, 2009 9:02 am at 9:02 am #1068528
Its mamisha a mechayeh to see such a gevaldige gishmake in the lernen of the yungerleit in the heilegeh cr 😉May 31, 2009 10:42 am at 10:42 am #1068529
Thanx aussieboy- feel free to join in!
You can see that Shavous had a major positive effect on me…May 31, 2009 11:19 am at 11:19 am #1068530
noitallmr: Its not so pashut. We need to clarify if the potential of the dirty chimmeny can change to that of the non DF making chimmeny
There is also the problem that it may take more than one DF to change the chimmeny to the potential to that of non DF making.
It can all be solved using this formula: DC + X(DF) = CF. Dirty chimmeny plus x amount of DF’s = a CF.
Now since every chimeny is diffrent we cannot judge how many DF’s it will take to change the potential.
But why are we bothering with all these complicated situations when we can just say that DF went down straight and CF went down inside a glass box?
Although there still remains the question of how they are not hurt. So either we can answer its because they were lowered slowly (which is not what it sounds like) or we can answer that they did get hurt but since it does not affect what we are discussing we neglected to mention it
noitallmr: You said i should feel free to get involoved. So i did 😉May 31, 2009 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm #1068531
