comment If a pig was genetically modified to chew its cud, would it be kosher?
yeah. Point being chewing the cud requires having a whole internal system to deal with it (extra stomachs, for example), while split hooves seems a lot simpler from a genetics point of view. Not saying that any of this can be done, just what seems more likely

comment Sleeping on Food without a Bed
I'm starting a bounty because my question wasn't answered. I don't want to know if I can out the food under the bench. I wanted to know if it's permissible where I know that actual sleep took place.

comment Bracha on an indirect view of lightning
Yeah. As YS said, we were in a bus, it was raining, and then someone took a picture. We thought it was actually lightning and made a Brocho... Then when in happened again, we identified the actual source.
