Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara quotes a Mishnah that one who is not obligated to do a mitzvah cannot do so on someone else’s behalf, for instance a katan cannot recite birchas hamazon for a gadol.  According to the view mentioned later that hirhur kedibur (contemplation is equated with actually reciting) why can’t the gadol fulfill his obligation by merely listening to a katan and contemplating his words?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

Stepping on the creature while walking is muttar even according to Rebbi Yehuda, since the Rabbanan deferred their issur in a situation of Mazikin.  Why don’t we say the same according to Rebbi Shimon; that the issur miderabanan (of Melacha she’ina tzericha legufa) is muttar in cases of Mazikin, thereby allowing killing any of them on sight?
