comment Can a woman delay going to the Mikvah?
The case of the question is not where she is doing it malevolently.

comment Why can't a mixed gender meal of 3 form a zimun?
@SethJ that gemara says that women and slaves don't make a zimmun together because of immodesty.

comment Would a replacement kohen gadol be anointed on yom kippur?
Do you have a reason to assume we won't just continue with appointment via clothing (a perfectly valid method of appointment) when the Mikdash is rebuilt?

comment Not Bentching on a Kos when wine is already on the table
I should note that most will tell you RMF is not saying "it is no longer required" but it was never required because we hold those poskim are right.

comment Call for Halachic Dateline Source(s)
That's not even the simplest answer. The simplest suggestion is everyone counts seven days from when they were born and does Shabbat then. Doesn't matter what others around you are doing. Seven sunsets, period.

comment Is the bracha pronounced “ha-MO-tzee” or “ha-mo-TZEE”?
Interesting. This also fits with Koren's using Kayemet instead of Kayamet in the blessing Emet veYatiz. Don't extend rules of Biblical grammar without precedent.

comment What is the Book of Genealogies?
@Monica Maharsha is a commentary printed in the back of standard full size gemaras just after the Rosh. He, unlike many commentators, comments on aggadic passages as well as halachik ones.

comment Can a non-Yisrael get Maftir Yonah?
@Gershon Actually, my answer covers all cases. Yours, while incomplete, also doesn't offer the most practical suggestion for alleviating the issue if need be (Baal keriyah).

It's not very useful to answer requests for sources with "I'm not sure of any sources".

I assume you mean challenges that are unique to space travel (meaning kosher food is not the answer you are looking for).
