I believe that link to kabalahyoga.com should be removed because of "Lifnei Iver" but that's just my opinion. I think it is quite ridiculous.

comment Can we argue with gedolim when we are sure that we are right?
A question asked to Rav BenSion Musafi Shelit"a "There is man who for hours deals with trying to disprove the words of Gedolim with crooked ways. Is it permissible to listen to his words? And he rules "G-d forbid, stay away my friend away from his words- they disgust the soul." He also brings many sources to this assertion.

@YDK good idea.

comment Was Darius Jewish?
This seams to be a Kashe on the Gemoreh that says that implies he wasn't Jewish. I would re-phrase the question.

comment How long until a bean chulent is totally cooked (mevushal kol tzorko)?
We had a problem like this once...I wanted to check on the Cholent and it was Shabbat. Thinking it was Mevushal Kol Tzorcho, I opened it after 6 hours of cooking and it turned out that it wasn't fully cooked yet. So I couldn't even put the cover back on. We took out the cholent form the crock pot, but not knowing someone else put it back in and we had a good Cholent (which BTW was Mutar for us to eat since it was cooked Maachal Ben Derusai).

comment What defines a country to be a legitimate country?
My brother told me that he heard live from Rav Dawid Yosef Shelit"a that if the government is corrupt then it would disqualify them.

comment If a King can't forgive, how did they ask Yosef, King of Egypt, for forgiveness?
He didn't forgive them though. Or maybe- a new peshat: he tried to forgive them but couldn't because of the Gemara.

comment Source for a Vacht Nacht
No the idea of reading the Zohar is from the Zohar, but the entire idea that we eat fruits etc. stems from that Shach. @simchashatorah
