comment Sous-vide cooking for Shabbat
When I heard about this method of cooking, it sounded like the practice I've seen Sefardim do, of putting bags of rice and water in the Chamin (Cholent), and having it cook that way. -- see here for example: blog.thepeppermillinc.com/2014/05/…

comment Meaning of ודו"ק
Somewhere floating around this site is a picture of a manuscript of Rashi where you can see that the divrei hamatchil were written with a quotation mark. I can't find it, but I'm almost positive @avi posted it.

I just saw the original hebrew in the link @shmuelbrin posted judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/48448/…, and it says explicitly the cloud that rested on the Mishkan.

I get that the candle corresponded to the miracle of the Menorah (or at least the Ner Maaravi) staying lit, but what did the cloud correspond to? The pillar of smoke that rose from the Altar?

comment Jerusalem was only destroyed because of these 8 things - how?
With regards to Elisha ben Avuya, there are different opinions what caused him to become a heretic. The Lubavitcher Rebbe (in a footnote to a letter -- Igerot Kodesh vol 1, page 143 -- hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=15875&pgnum=176 ) offers that the different opinions aren't arguing, all the reasons happened, and the Rabbis are just discussing which one was the main reason. A similar thing can be said here.

comment Why is it important that God created the first pair of tongs?
With regards to your second question, they were created then, but weren't used until much later.
