comment If the last day of Passover is Friday, may I eat chametz on the Shabbat right after?
@user1095 . You advise "buy some Pesach-certified kitnyios food on Chol HaMoed". How is this permitted on Chol HaMoed bearing in mind that I am preparing for Shabbos and not Yom Tov?

Insofar as he sinned. That brought on his destruction.

comment Sources that discuss reasons for the prohibition on suicide
The sources are interesting but I think they need a narrative to show how they answer show "why one is not allowed to take his/her own life".

@newcomer - You might like to post it as an answer; but you will probably get requests for sources.

comment Is every member of the community responsible for making his own eiruv tavshilin?
The situation with the Rbbi's eruv tavshilin is clearly answered and sourced under "2 Alternatives" at torahmusings.com/2010/10/forgotten-eruv-tavshilin referenced by the OP hmiself. Therefore this seems like a dup.

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.

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.

I asked how to determine that a sick person has reached the stage of being a גוסס and you answer that the doctors cannot tell?
