comment What Bracha should you say on a Hurricane?
Yes, but it's not uncommon to hear thunder when you didn't see the lightning and I suppose it's possible to see lightning but not hear the thunder.

comment If kings were supposed to be from Shevet Yehuda, why was Shaul from Binyamin anointed?
There are examples in Tanach of kings who were subservient to other kings. There are many examples in history of this also.

comment Why fill the glass all the way to the top?
Many who have the custom to overfill their wine cup do so over a plate so that the wine will not be wasted and can later be poured back into a cup.

That question was about Retzuos. This question is about Tefillin.

comment Mixed swimming in a pool?
Also, I don't know that what a person would see in a non-jewish mixed swimming area these days is all that different from what one would see walking down a public street in, say, Manhattan.

comment Mixed swimming in a pool?
some other issues:A father has a mitzva to teach his children to swim. If the only place he has to do so is a public area where mixed swimming is common there might be more reason to be lenient.

What would you think of eating oily food, like a salad with olive oil dressing, and then not wiping it off the lips?

If it was Ever Min HaChai it would be a problem for non-jews too.

comment Which communities accept sheitels (wigs) as adequate hair coverings for married women?
In Chabad-Lubavitch, the Rebbe strongly insisted that only Sheitels should be worn in public. Either synthetic or human hair are used, although human hair seems to be more fashionable. Many Lubavitch married women will wear tichels inside the home.
