“When the day comes that I must account for my life, I will not be asked: ‘Why weren’t you Moses?’ I was not equipped to be Moses. But I dread the question, ‘Why weren’t you Zusia?’ —Reb Zusia of Anipoli

comment Poskim who hold chalita is necessary?
This question really needs some editing. First, the term requires definition. It is jargon without it. Second, the Yemenite requirement comes from the Rambam, so the question doesn't hold on its own. Third, famous is way too vague. Almost opinion based. Especially when discussing Achronim. Fourth a link which gives some background would be really helpful. Here is one: chayas.com/kosherissues.htm

comment Israeli making pizza on last day of Pesach in the Diaspora
@DoubleAA, re Maaris Eiyin, what they assume is that the Jew went in and took it back over too early. Everyone "knows" that the non-Jew isn't likely to go in there and start using the place. This has actually happened.

comment Borrowing money without clear plan of how to pay it back
@SethJ, a common structure of a loan to a poor person would be to purchase merchandise to sell at a markup. At no time (other than an Ones) is he without the means to repay. Another is where liquidity is his problem - he has possessions that may even be used as a security for the loan, but lacks money to transact business and earn a living, and wants to avoid irrevocably selling the possessions.

comment Paying tax on chametz sale
I don't think this is true. In the US, you don't have a VAT tax, you have a sales tax. As such, you may be entitled to a refund on the sales tax you paid to buy it when you resell it, but "adding value" is of no relevance.
