comment Is chimutz a wholly physical phenomenon?
@Aaron- I think that it is everyday chemistry that agitation of the ingredients does not stop a chemical reaction. (I have studied chemistry to a high level.)

comment Coerced testimony in halacha
Maybe you should add that the proof you suggest comes from "R. Tarfon changed the order of the words to test the man's accuracy," note 15.

@kouty It means I have cut out some text that is not relevant.

comment How to determine that someone is a גוסס?
Rav Feinstein attributes their inability to tell to their ignorance of (a) the din and of (b) the effects of intervention on a goses. So do you think a Talmid Chochom might be able to tell?

comment How obligated is one to say Kaddish for a deceased relative?
Slightly related Maaseh Rav. I was an ovel for my mother a”h. Only one person at a time said kaddish in the shul where I davened. The Gabbai asked if I would give up a kaddish so someone else could say one for a distant relative. I agreed. A member reproved me saying I had to say three kaddeishim at Shacharis. I asked the Rav. He said the minimum requirement is one kaddish per day.
