comment Fasting on shabbas 10 Teves
Isn't the answer right there in the Beis Yosef? Rav David Avudarham(?) wrote that the source psauk for this fast uses the word "b'etzem" just like that of Yom Hakipurim. So, by fiat (g'zeras haKasuv) it must be observed on the given date.

comment Can a person (or cat) be both alive and dead at the same time? (Schrödinger's paradox)
Do you have in mind legal ramifications other than the one you linked? Is there reason to believe that the general answer to this question is not covered by the generalized parts of the yibum question's?

@IsaacMoses That's why I didn't vote to migrate! On-topic there does not necessarily imply off-topic here (which probably contributes to that site having so much trouble existing).

comment Berur halachah - what is this called in English?
Good question, but probably belongs on Hebrew.SE. But la"d it could be "legal clarification" (literal), "due diligence" (impressionistic).

Perhaps including the parallel analysis in the question would strengthen it. Or it might reveal more about it for you and the future answerer to learn from.

comment Chanuka candles if missed the night
Do you have reason to believe there would be a difference if one neglected to light intentionally?

comment In which language is written the R' Hillel Lichtenstein's sefer Eth Laasot?
I'm no expert, but it's definitely Yiddish. It uses the word "Yiddishkeit" for example.
