comment meaning of words and tefillah
Mishna B'rura O.C. 60:11 says that one must know the meaning of the words of the first pasuk in Sh'ma. This specificity is based on the opinion of R. Me'ir in a 3-way dispute over how much of the first paragraph requires such intent. Elsewhere he says that the same applies to the whole first paragraph in the amida and might imply that it is also true of p'suke d'zimra.

comment Must I check the kashrut certificate every time I visit a bakery or restaurant?
Do you have a source? I think it would be reasonable to argue that either the assumption that the food is permissible generally applies, regardless of how far into the date range you are, or that the assumption never holds so you need to check on each visit.

comment How does Tum'ah (“Ritual Impurity”) work?
Hi not telling and welcome to mi.yodeya! You certainly have a systematic opinion of this highly technical topic. Is the information in your second paragraph and on based on precedent or are they exclusively your own? If the former, inclusion of sources would improve your answer.

comment Source for the quotation, “More than Jews have kept the sabbath…”
@DoubleAA Somehow, genrewise I assumed those to not be the case. Looks like I was on the money! Did you assume this was a talmudic or Maimonidean quotation before you saw its source?
