comment Why do most of the shuls in Manhattan face the wrong direction?
This is a good answer; the only thing missing is why they chose to face SSW rather than NNE. Flesh that out, and you get answer credit.

Ok... "shotgun" isn't the first shape that comes to mind when I look at that, but then my name isn't @ClintEastwood :D

"irregardless" is not an English word. "Irrespective" or "Regardless"...

Right, so the patur remains patur, and the chayav now had teruma taken. Why was the taking of teruma ineffective?

Ah, I hadn't got to Terumos yet, so I didn't know that mishna. :) But it just pushes the question to there. Why can't you take teruma from chayav on patur?

comment Mishna Demai 5:11: why can't you take teruma from vadai on demai?
I don't see how you can read that he took the entire vadai and made it teruma for the demai. Then the mishna (or Kehati at least!) should have denoted somehow that the reason it does not work is because of that technicality that you can't declare an entire crop as teruma. According to what you're saying, if he only took part of the vadai as teruma it should be good - but that's not what the mishna says. In several places Kehati states that מעשר מן החייב על הפטור is ineffective, in general, not just when you exhaust the חייב. Why is that?
