On a similar note-

my Rav once suggested measuring out the kzeisim for matzah and maror before yomtov on a digital scale, as opposed to doing it on yomtov with the cards. This was really a game changer for me... I couldn't believe how much smaller the actual shiur was, and how much less strain there was on my stomach...

There is an added benefit of not wasting so much time during the seder measuring out shiurim for everyone, as everything is prepared in bags from erev yomtov

Isn't kezayis measured by volume rather than by weight?
If you don't care why would you comment?

yes.  many have tested the volume and converted to weight measurement. If you prefer, you can crush your matzah to measure by volume

You know what else takes away chashivus? Calling it a 'kiddish cup' instead of a 'becher'!

What have we fallen to DDF?! Do we also say 'Shabbos lunch'??
In Chabad we say litvish people have "Shabbos Brunch"

(This is totally made up)

not really. Difference is whether you learn before davening or after davening

Personally I enjoy my largish be her and the buzz of 4x 6oz of potent wine, it makes the singing at Hallel at the end more lively (:
The first time my wife came to the Seder at my parents' house she was surprised to see how exciting Hallel and Nirtzah were, in her parents' house they only drank Grape Juice and it was just "Abi Gezugt", in our house we had a bunch of buzzed guys singing :)

I think the traditional way of having each woman (the adult men have their own kaara) hold up some matza and having the father shake his head until she adds enough or he gets tired of shaking is better.

Why can't someone design a nice size becher with a false bottom so it can have less wine, but still be the same impressive standard look?

I like this, maybe we can bundle it with the kapota adjustable length jackpota

Or someone can actually do my billion dollar idea and create a jacket that unzips into a kapota when you leave home and realize you made the wrong choice.

Not if they hold of R Chaim Noe's shiur lechatchila.
in his sefer he also quotes testimony from Chassidim on Russia for slightly bigger numbers. 3.5 or even 4oz.
I have had a lubavitch rov (not ch) tell us to use 3.5 as the base shiur leikuva

Sedorim aren't that tough. Seudas Moshiach is much more of a challenge. Especially with Havdolo after it.

Beer for havdala
