comment Cashier error - is it my responsibility to go back?
This, IMHO, is not a case of tous akum. You have Jewish money in error. The mitzvo is, I think, hashovas aveidah.

comment saying asher yatzar while in an improper state
First para of the quoted source reads, "As a general rule, asher yatzar, the blessing recited after one relieves oneself, must be recited immediately once one has washed one’s hands after using the washroom. There is some discussion; however, as to how long one actually has to recite asher yatzar in the event that for whatever reason it was not recited promptly after relieving oneself." So the delay is bdiavad. Lechatchila the blessing must be recited immediately after relieving oneself.

@Shalom My concern was that the אֶתְנַן זוֹנָה וּמְחִיר כֶּלֶב was more abhorrent than a physical defect. If so I would expect אֶתְנַן כֶּלֶב וּמְחִיר זוֹנָה to be equally bad. But it isn't halacha 17. So I am finally convinced. Thanks.

Yes. Is the din the same whether it is a physical blemish of which you speak or the rather different sort of problem of harlot's wage or barter for a dog?

comment Is there a halachic problem with the Columbia University seal on the floor of the library?
Your question is general and not specifically related to the seal on the floor of the library. FYI the Name of Hashem on the floor of the library is written with a ches and not a hei. See here and here.
