comment Where are the Mishnas in the Talmud?
@Laizer IIRC chapters of M'nachos are in a different order in the Bavli from their order in the mishnayos. I seem vaguely to recall the same is true of P'sachim but I may be confusing that with some other quirk P'sachim has.

comment Where are the Mishnas in the Talmud?
@DoubleAA ... and more to the point (since the question doesn't ask about the breakup into mishnayos), so is the ordering of chapters.

comment Humans have 613 organs?
What are the "these" in your second sentence? If they're the 613 spiritual organs (which is the way your question reads), then apparently Tanya is a source for their being 613 spiritual organs, and an answer to your question.

comment What is the source not to eat the endpiece of the challah?
"If he practiced it and tried to source it but couldn't, I would assume there is no real source." I'd only assume that there's then no extant written source.

comment the nature of an argument between the Wurtzberger rov and Rav Shamshon Refoel Hirsch
If you were aware of that argument, @rabbi, then you shouldn't have asked your question as you did. You should, rather, have referred to the argument you were already aware of, including detail sufficient to identify it, and then asked about the existence of another argument about a rabbi's bending to the will of the congregation. The way you asked the question ("does anyone know the nature of a famous argument between the wurtzberger rov and Rav shamshon Refoel hirsh? i think it was to do with the extent a kehilah must follow thier rov or visa virsa"), this answer is an excellent one.
