comment Is Extra virgin olive oil kosher by default?
The context of the quoted article is olive oil. But I have emailed Star-K asking them.

comment How do we answer those who claim G-d doesn't exist?
Related to your question: youtube.com/watch?v=PEg_Oys4NkA Is there a rational basis to believe that Judaism is true? In this lecture, Lawrence Kelemen presents a rational approach to the Divine origin of Judaism. You will find out the one unique claim that Judaism makes that no other religion in history has made.

comment Standing for someone who's turned seventy
Yes! Does anyone discuss the possibility that because people live longer nowadays, the cut-off age may have advanced beyond 70?

comment Is it a good thing to sing “ יָמִים עַל יְמֵי מֶלֶךְ תּוֹסִיף שְׁנוֹתָיו כְּמוֹ דֹר וָדֹר” in honour of the senior Rabbinic speaker?
@GershonGold "To remember" yes; to be reminded - that's my question.

comment Is shogeg beyond my control?
I have doubts about the example you give (similar to YEZ's comment). The food is what it is (kosher or not). HaShem is unlikely to intervene miraculously to change it if we are not bothered enough to make sure of its kashrut.

comment Can you make a beracha during hiccups?
The speech impediment was permanent. Hiccups go away (normally). I did not downvote.

comment Can you make a beracha during hiccups?
What sort of beracha? If it's on food, you can hardly enjoy it with the hiccups. If it's for the glass of water you are drinking to "drown" the hiccups, it doesn't need a beracha. If it's for tefilla, can you concentrate with the hiccups?

comment What if the tafel comes to hand first?
If the spoon you are holding contains only one thing, then the question of making a brocho on a mixture doesn't occur. You don't have a mixture! Make ho'adomo on that spoonful and see what comes up in the next spoonful.
