comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
Also how do you know chazal were not talking about their own pots and pans, which were the metzius?

Shouting match perhaps but based on criteria given in the midrash I think it is an easy match. Regarding rambam, didn't he also predict mashiach in 1212? If so, this would be the return of prophecy in messianic times, which is a different animal entirely

Bilaam's father beor did not prophesy for posterity

Also due to the special relationship between hashem and Israel, and the requirements for prophecy.

comment Among the gentiles, why Job and Bilaam were recognized as prophets whereas Muhammad was not?
thanks. i think (1) and (3) share features, but the focus of (1) is that there is explicit removal of prophecy from the nations, while the focus of (3) is that one should not necessarily extrapolate from a closed (rather than open) set, from Bilaam to the possibility of other prophets, as was implied in the question. in terms of #2, yes, I would argue that at the very least the level of suspicion one must regard any claimed prophet with nowadays is greater than that in the days of David. And that in messianic days, it will return. (is מחמד different re אכזריות, in terms of Tanchuma?)

Shmuel, if you want to frame it that way, sure, he held that Dinah demalchuta Dina. I would say that the torah law is only one peice of the larger context puzzle, and in a different situation Yaakov would have applied the law simply.
