comment Israel Am v.s. Goy
That idea alone is hand-waving. You have to actually do the nitty-gritty of what means what when to have a persuasive answer.

Is "giving a bracha to the children that they should grow up in the Torah" a Segulah for having grandchildren? Whence do you know this?

YK is basically an all day Tachanun...

comment I saw someone claim that, “In Zohar of Pinchos, that an Eishes Ish is לזר מותרת if her husband allows.”?
@DannySchoemann It it not explicitly forbidden in the Torah! Just because the claim comes from a polemic doesn't mean you have to give bad answers. What you can say is it is highly unlikely the Zohar would allow something which we have no other record of a Tanna allowing.

It's an exception. Likely people have made lots of nice Drashas based on it.

comment Should or may a non-Jew light candles at Shabbat service?
Hi Dr. Mayer! I think you should speak to a rabbi instead of some random people on the internet. What do we really know, anyway?

comment Israel Am v.s. Goy
In my estimation the scholars of traditional Judaism more frequently date it to an earlier period than that. In any event, this answer is complete hand-waving. I don't disagree that meanings of words can shift over time, but you'd have to track it to show any meaningful result.

comment Trying to understand Kol Hanearim
Do you have any reason to suspect saying something someone else did is a Segulah for having similar amounts of progeny as they did? (Or some other reason for asserting that this is a bona fide Segulah?)

Why is saying a bracha in the proximity of children a zechus?

comment Is there any point where לשבת יצרה no longer applies?
@YEZ I think the last paragraph does answer the question. The OP asserts that there is no such condition as the one you propose in your question. (I don't know the OP so his assertion isn't worth all that much to me.)

@ray So what? What if it's an old ugly woman?

comment Is it asur to listen to a parrot which is a perfect mimic of a woman singing?
The OP stated in the question that he already knew this.

Closing your eyes while handling fire is a BAD idea.
