comment Where is the first time that the splitting of the Red Sea is referred to as קריעת ים סוף?
Indeed, though @Daniel's answer quoting Tosefta would seem to be older than the Gemara. Granted that R' Elazar ben Azarya and R' Akiva were both Tannaim, but they're still being quoted by Amoraim, which is second hand. So thus far, the Tosefta is still holding the "earliest source" baton. :-)

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"...
