comment What does Mot Umat mean?
@MosheBaron, that is a very different question than the one you have written above. I suggest leaving this one as-is (since there are now two reasonable answers) and redrafting a new question that is clearer about what you seek to know.

comment What does Mot Umat mean?
@IsaacMoses, does this question fall out of scope if the answer is simply a translation (even though the question assumes a possible philosophical answer)?

comment Is this true that Elijah and Elisha didn't perform any miracle to help Jews?
I challenge that this entire question is irrelevant, as the job a prophet is not to perform miracles, but to be the messenger of G-d to the people, and the interlocutor on behalf of the people to G-d. In other words, you may (still) be asking the wrong question. You might ask, simply, what was so special about those individuals who received personal miracles?

comment What's the difference between wasting seed and having marital relations without the possibility of conception?
It's only circular bc the premise in the question is faulty. I was commenting, however, in follow-up to your comment exchange with @ani, not on your answer directly.

@AniYodeya, Yishai, perhaps better limited as "Halachically valid purpose".

comment Toasters in motels / cabins
I do see, though, that it is asked about a past experience, thus removing yourself from the immediate question. I'll give you that.

comment Toasters in motels / cabins
Too Pesak-y. Recommend rewrite along the lines of, "do the heating elements in a toaster have the ability to kasher the toaster (assuming it's clean and hasn't been used in 24 hours)?"

comment How hungry does a Jew have to be to eat non-kosher food?
@shmuel sure, but wouldn't this be a case by case thing?
