Well as interesting as this is, we have no idea who you are that we should value your opinions at all. Please edit in a source for your claims if you want your answer to be valuable to the community.

comment Waiting after meat and milk
@sam He ate meat-and-milk, at the end of the day. I don't know what Rashi/Rambam has to do with it. IAE a classical source would be more convincing then someone guessing, even if they are smart and have good halachic instincts.

comment Honey on Hallah for Newlyweds?
@IsaacMoses I didn't say the question is bad, though it could use support for how we know it's at all common (eg. "I saw this a few times"). I said I'm pretty certain the answer it has nothing to do with Judaism. See too this question judaism.stackexchange.com/q/22158/759 which is a valid question with an answer that says "this has nothing to do with Judaism".

@Daniel I have no reason to doubt you (though I highly suspect you have a sampling bias in saying "lots"), but I'm still highly confident it has no basis in Judaism. People do all sorts of weird things for fun.

comment Waiting after meat and milk
Ok so you should make that your answer (and clarify its source ("I heard from two rabbis I asked")) and remove everything else which doesn't address the question. (I'm not particularly convinced, btw, by your sources, nor do I see what traces of meat have to do with anything (since it's possible they aren't meat but "meat and milk" and it's possible that even if they are meat, they are meat which isn't Assur to cook with milk as it's already cooked.)

comment What does the munach say?
I don't think this accurately represent R Breuer's position (can't speak to the others'). My understanding is he thinks a munach-psik-revii is always a legarmei except for Isaiah 42:5 where if you look at Leningrad there's a Mesora note that it's a Psik. Thus we infer that everywhere else is a Legarmei.

I Chronicles 15 13 sefaria.org/I_Chronicles.15.13 is not a merkha munach etnachta. There is also a Tipcha on the word with the Merkha.

Merkha Munach Etnachta? I don't think that's possible. Where did you see it?

More like sending it at 645am instead of 3am so people think you go to sleep and wake up at normal adult times.

comment What is the dot in this vav?
Essentially, this Dagesh is no different than that in the Shin in לֹא יִשָּׁמַע עַל-פִּיךָ or any other parallel construct. True it looks weird as it resembles a Shuruk, but it's just a regular Dagesh.

comment What is the dot in this vav?
If you had asked about the difference in your question I could have given that info to you in an answer. Always better to ask what you mean to ask and not take shortcuts. (This is a perfect example of why I encourage people to include motivation, etc. in their posts.)

comment What is the dot in this vav?
It's not about what the vav has under it but what the preceding letter has. In 45:1 the preceding letter has a Shva Nakh which closes the previous syllable, so the vav opens a new one. In 41:31 the previous letter has a chirik chaseir which, being a short vowel (tenua ketana), has to be in a closed syllable when unaccented. So we lengthen the vav sound in order to close the syllable before and open the next at the same time. Think of it like yiv-va-da'. In 45:1 we have hit-vad-da' again with the daled getting doubled for the same reason (the letter preceding it had an unaccented short vowel).
