So all the water slowly rises a bit at a time?
Why when im using the hot water it can quickly become cold?

When the tap is off, the water is constantly circulating.
When you turn on the water, the water you take out is instantly replaced by new unheated water from the supply lines... Which, especially in the winter, can drop the temp very quickly - or even, if the pipes are set up just wrong feed straight into the outlet pipe to your house...

The pic is mashma that the hot water is always going up and stays at the top of the dud while the cold is coming in and staying at the bottom...

Don't make chakiros from a general diargam of anything...
I had found a more complicated diagram, but it's harder to understand...
there's CONVECTION going on the entire time.

Would it be an issue to throw chometz in the garbage at Ben Gurion airport on Erev pesach?

Anyone know if kfi is reputable. They seem to say that a lot of banks are unadvisable to use.

I once called them asking regarding a particular bank that they listed as unadvisable, they where very helpful.

She knows how?
A woman should not read read the megillah on behalf of men and should, preferably, not even read the megillah to exempt herself. If, however, no one who can read it properly is available, she may read it for herself.

If an animal can survive for a few days without food, may one eat before feeding it?

Im not sure I understand your question. If the inyan is צער בעלי חיים or an inyan of rachmanus, not that we are worried that the animal will die while you are eating first, so then why should there be a חילוק if the animal can survive?

What determines if its time for the animal to eat?

If its normal for this animal to eat in the morning, then it would seem that you would run into this Halacha before you would be able to eat. Btw, not brought in Shulchan Aruch (some achronim do bring it) and Rambam seems to say its a midas chassidus.

It is a fish. It eats whenever you feed it.

Not entirely accurate (קס״ז, or maybe קס״ח its mentioned in passing)

His question is really a continuation from a different thread... He's talking specifically about goldfish which lefi riatah it seems may have a different outcome then a real animal?  Also, hes talking about a case where he has no food to feed the fish since it will be Pesach and he doesn't have KFP food... Thought it may be help to add these factors.

Maskim. The איסור is not mentioned, only regarding whether its a hefsek.

Interesting תשובה from the יעב״ץ, looks like he says it applies to fish as well.

Yes. But what determines its time to eat?

Can someone with a fish go away for shabbos?

Perhaps it's what the fish is accustomed to?
Going away for Shabbos- feed it before our leave a little extra and then as soon as you get home.

I dont know why that would work if its fed daily in the morning. And 2 day YT? Toast. Should I just euthanize it >:(
Seems kinda counterproductive
