Perhaps it would be best if I don't share my information. For your sake, not just mine. I did work at the Anxious Clown for some time though, in case you are curious.

comment Return to Egypt: Allowed?
ט מותר לחזור לארץ מצריים לסחורה ולפרקמטיה, ולכבוש ארצות אחרות; ואין אסור אלא להשתקע שם. ואין לוקין על לאו זה--שבעת הכניסה, מותר הוא; ואם יחשב לישב ולהשתקע, אין בו מעשה. He did it for parnassah

Unless you sell your chametz (and any animals that eat chametz, which is included in most versions of the mechirat chametz contract)... in which case some non-Jew's hamster is benefiting from the stored Chametz

@HachamGabriel allow me to rephrase it then (i'm pretty good at that): you ask which sfardim are meikil in extreme situations. The above answers to this very question claim that R Abba-Shaul was maikil on shobbos and the kaf hachayim was maikil with liquids. Still, nobody dares to give a blanket heter.

@DoubleAA halacha =/= physiology. halacha is based around a series of klalim, and this is one of them.
