comment P'sak halacha by AI?
"It doesn't work with pattern matching, which is what's needed in psak." Have you seen the pattern recognition literature? They are working on that too. (Just one example: ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/freeabs_all.jsp?arnumber=4767034) How do you know that siyata diShmaya or at least intuition cannot be simulated given sufficient processing power and time?

comment If Christianity is avodah zarah and Islam is not, why has the Christian world triumphed over the non-Christian, and why do Jews prefer to live among Christians and not Muslims?
+1 for the second part of the question about the choices disposably mobile Jews make regarding places to live. Is the first part not just a special case of rasha v'tov lo, or "why do good things happen to bad people?"?

comment words often mispronounced
I'm not clear on exactly what you mean by "pronounced wrong simply because that's how people think they should be pronounced". Are you specifying that the mistakes have to be due to whim or that they have to be due to conviction? Does it matter if people have divergent convictions depending on context? (The first divergence that comes to mind is between colloquialism and Torah reading of the "same" word.)

comment What sort of covering is required for Challa and cake while making Kiddush?
Can you cite a source for the need for covering being based on embarrassment rather than a combination of halachos regarding b'rachos precedence?

comment Hakaras hatov vs. hoda'a
If I understand your answer correctly, hakaras hatov is a component of hoda'a. Is that correct?
