comment Where is the Sambatyon?
If there really is one, someone should go there and see if it holds by Rabenu Tam or the Gr"a and finally put the matter to rest.

comment Repeating Seder HaKitores
Wasn't the Gr"a among those who avoided saying it at all because of the חשש of חיסר אחת חייב מיתה?

comment (Av Harachaman,) sh'ma kolenu
@Yahu I wouldn't rule out confusion. Is it fair to assume that the presence or absence of "שמע קולנו" correlates 100% with נוסח?

comment Why Daniel is not Among the Prophets?
I think this is the idea Rabbi Dr. Leiman intended (in the linked שיעור in Shalom's answer).

comment Why did Moses raise the brass serpent in the wilderness?
@Ben Masada I don't think you are disagreeing with Alex in this case. His phrasing "beyond our understanding" was a) a paraphrase of Ibn Ezra's opinion rather than Alex's own, b) in reference not to one of the 613 מצוות in the תורה (which may be the antecedent for the פסוק you quoted in דברים), but to a one-time command to משה in the wilderness and c) among several other suggestions that in fact attribute rationales to the particular choosing of a snake and being raised high.

comment Shnayim Ve'arba'im - mi yodeya?
I forgot about that one. It was so, to borrow Dave's term, off my radar that I never even gave the question a second look, having never seen such a cat.
