comment Miracles through natural means
I don't believe this answers the question (though it partially answers the companion question).

comment Why do we need dishes designated specifically for Pesah?
Mods: I just realized after posting that this needs some serious editing. I am going to edit this for clarification; please bear with me a few minutes.

comment Why on Pesah are we more strict with Kitniyoth than we are with real grains?
@double ok, fair. Though that should really be edited into the question, because that's not at all how I read it.

comment Why on Pesah are we more strict with Kitniyoth than we are with real grains?
@double he's asking about Matzah. I'm asking about Kitniyoth. In fact, I've revised my comment because I failed to read the full answer over there. I don't believe the answer fits the question. He's not asking about whether Matzah made from Kitniyoth is allowed qua Kitniyoth. He's asking if it is Matzah.

@double please re-read that question. This is not a duplicate.

Or VTC as CYLA (consult your local attorney).

comment Can You Open Chometz Cabinets?
@DoubleAA, actually, it seems more like a breaking-and-entering/trespassing question. I don't see anything about stealing. I voted to close as Psak. Maybe I should have voted to close as unclear?

comment Connections between Biur Chametz and Tashlich?
I don't see it myself, especially since I've heard most people argue that we shouldn't throw bread into the water. But who knows? Maybe someone somewhere does talk about it. +1 for explaining the question thoroughly (imo).

comment Why did people not go to Shul at Yom Tov by night?
@user6591, that comment sounds very speculative (and I commend you for your "perhaps"), yet you sound pretty certain. Have you heard this before somewhere? If so, source?

This answer is very unclear. Please attempt to edit with clearer language, punctuation, and grammar.

comment First Steps to becoming Jewish
In your case, it might be best not to convert but to follow the Noahide laws. It sounds like conversion in your case could destabilize an otherwise happy home.

@NoachmiFrankfurt, it is someone else's transliteration.

comment Where did the myth that the *entire* matza process must be done in under 18 minutes come from?
@DoubleAA, doesn't the "if it is left idle" part distinguish it? In other words, so long as it's rolled out and put in the oven without being left idle, just as Aaron says in penultimate paragraph, "you could still be kneading the dough for 3 hours, put it right in the oven, and still have kosher matzah."

comment Why was Mordechai wearing a royal garmet with a hole in it?
This is pure speculation, of course, but part of me wonders if the significance of כַּרְפַּס in royal circles led to its inclusion in the Seder rituals. I mean, if we're dipping our royal veggies into salt-water "tears", that's pretty profound. (This comment is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.)

I would like you to rephrase the question so that it does not sound like you are asking for a Pesak.

@mevakesh maybe he had a reason. But I can tell you what I saw when I learned it.
