comment Why do Yeshivos learn Talmud Bavli so extensively?
I second @Matt's recommendation, especially chapter 3, to answer the question "what makes G'mara more worthwhile than other halacha texts?" It is parallel to an amazing discourse in אורות הקודש by Rav Kook in which he explains how halacha and agada are inextricably linked.

comment How are nazir and sota connected?
@DanF There are certainly roots that are both Hebrew and Aramaic that appear in Tana"ch.

revised How are nazir and sota connected?
Clarified that the question is a grammatical one, not a lexical one.

comment How are nazir and sota connected?
To clarify, I made up "swear off". The question is only about the mode of the imperfect י in this case, not the lexical value of the root ז.ר.

comment The new book about the Lubavitcher Rebbe zt"l
Same here @Tatpurusha. In fact, he has been praising all 2 or 3 of the recent biographical works on the Rebbe.

comment Yichud with surveillance cameras
One of those makes the distinction explicit. The other does not. The answerers seem to all but ignore it, and it is not clear that it has any bearing on the question here. Perhaps a comprehensive answer to any one of the three would address that difference.

comment Can one run a surveillance Camera on Shabbos?
Please explain the bar mitzva part of the question. Why would surveillance of such an event be different from that of any other occurrence?
