comment Is there “פה שאסר הוא פה שהתיר” or a “מגו” in American law?
@msh210 Boy you are tough. Thank you for pushing me on this. I guess I was hoping Hamvin Yavin. However, you are correct, I should have explained the principle. I have edited the question to include a basic explanation. Thank you for your assistance on this.

comment Is there “פה שאסר הוא פה שהתיר” or a “מגו” in American law?
Hmm. I see your perspective, but I am trying to get American Law examples that may help illustrate the principle. Furthermore, one may argue the rule you quoted is dealing with comparative religion. I am asking a law question not a religion question. Furthermore one could argue that Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach demand a court system. We might debate that point. Additionally see here for a usage already accepted: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/18353/… Thanks for re-considering this.

@ablaze I will try and elaborate on Double AA's approach and try and give it a more thorough treatment.

comment Why do we have the Bakasha, request, of Shema Koleinu, hear our voices in the Shemoneh Esreh?
@msh210 I added to the question to make it unique. I still don't feel satisfied with the answers that are given on the question you directed me to.

comment Is there a reason or pattern as to when the Torah uses אֵת instead of אֶת?
I learned that as well from my High School Rebbe. I have yet to find a place that it doesn't work. Nice!

comment Why must a Yoledet, a woman who just gave birth, bring a sin offering?
I guess I have a series of questions on this Gemara. Is this really true of all woman? Even if the "just in case" approach, I don't believe she would be held accountable for an accidental Shevua? Furthermore, her husband could nullify her vow? Additionally, Chatas would not be the typical offering for accidentally violating a vow, why here is it a Chatas? I was hoping for a an idea that would explain away these questions. Thank you Monica for bringing this.

comment When was the one time the Jewish people did not fast on Yom Kippur?
@DoubleAA I guess my focus is not to ask this as a riddle, rather to discover the time that the Jews did not keep Yom Kippur and the source for it. It is just obscure, it doesn't require "riddle" type of thinking. But hey, you must moderate as you see fit. =)

comment What is the longest word in Tanach?
@sabbahillel Thanks. I didn't ask about the shortest because I saw that on this link here: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/2116/…
