comment Eating Hamentashen on Purim
If you bake it with four corners and cut one off it would be osser because of makeh bepatesh, as you would now have two kosher three sided hamantashen

comment Why did the Mitzryim turn water into blood rather than vice versa?
The Torah clearly states that all water throughout the land was turned into blood. For the magicians to also turn water into blood, they must have first turned the blood back into water.

comment Was Joseph considered a Tzaddik as he went down to Egypt?
Maybe he was considered a Tzaddick for not revealing what his brothers had done and in accepting the charem of silence imposed by them. (no source, just a thought)

comment Did Yaakov marry Bilah and Zilpah?
Ramban explains that whilst Rochel and Leah were alive, they were maid servants to them and are referred to as shvochos (37:2)and pilagshim (concubines) (35:22) and only after their deaths did he take them as proper wives.

comment Did Moshe see Paro's face again after all?
a related question but has always bothered me, Why didn't Pharaoh have Moshe killed during the plagues or even threaten with killing, until now? (he was told of his coming by his astrologers before he was born, which resulted in the order from Pharaoh that all male babies should be killed, so he knew Moshe was the instrument for the exodus).

comment Why did the Mitzryim turn water into blood rather than vice versa?
where did the Mitzryim get the water from to prove they could also do as Moishe did, if it had all been turned into blood?

comment Intent of the 9 days and Meat
to continue this theme, yes taking a shower in the nine days is not permitted (I know there are hetarim) and washing clothes, but I heard someone today claiming that having your car washed is forbidden...

comment Tachnun in Nissan
Please look at the MB. States clearly since the majority of the month is is in 'Kedushah' therefore we make the whole month Kodesh, not Yom Tov.

comment What type of Maror?
The drift of my answer, which I should have added, is that I couldn't find any reference to your specific question because fundamentally, all stated types are ok so it would seem to make no difference if they are mixed or two types are used for Marror and Koiraich.
