comment What is the ruling of adultery in Torah or Tanach
So, though you might have different motives for limiting your questions, it might make sense to broaden your them by source but limit them by time. E.g., "What was the punishment for X during the time of the first Jews?"

comment What is the ruling of adultery in Torah or Tanach
Just fyi, limiting your questions to Torah or Tanakh does not allow an honest response to these questions. The Oral Law is considered just as important and binding as the Written Law and must be included when talking about actual practice. In addition, there have been many works whose teachings have become canonical (Rashi's commentary, Rambam's Mishneh Torah, and Joseph Karo's Shulchan Aruch are the clearest examples).

@IsaacMoses According to this site Purim and Superbowl Sunday have never and will never overlap until they change the date of the Superbowl.

comment Midrashim concerning Balaam?
Not midrash, but interesting - livius.org/de-dh/deir_alla/deir_alla_inscr.html - Bilaam was known to the non-Jewish world and had non-Jewish traditions about him.

comment Surviving the zombie apocalypse?
The third source should probably have been the answer by itself, but long-winded-ness, I hear, is the source of wit.

comment May one love a non-Jew?
This might be better as a comment to the answer you're referring to. Alternatively, if you summarize what is said, that can stand as its own answer.

comment Why does the verse in Mishpatim say Vashti ruled over fewer countries than mentioned in Ester?
maybe Vashti was just a little more zaftig than we'd otherwise think.
