@msh210 No, the question is also about the nusach Teman -- Baladi version. see 'Arvith here

comment Who killed Shaul?
Worth noting that the version in Divrei Hayamim follows the version in Shemuel Alef.

Rambam's siddur and R Amram Gaon has the regular Nusach Ashkenaz version. Machzor Vitri seems to have two versions: one like Nusach Ashkenaz and one that adds Chochmah. I suspect the latter is a typo because a similar mistake appears in some printings of the Rambam.

The former method is AFAIK a Nusach Sefard change.

comment Mezuza positioning: why top angled in not out?
@BruceJames Indeed, I have seen that too. The archaeological evidence against RT is pretty intense, not to mention one of his arguments being that we lay the Torah horizontally before reading it so placing things vertically is clearly a lack of Kavod (tell that to a Sephardi!). I remember an article I read about construction practices in Bavel which clarified what the gemara about כמין נגר likely meant to the Babylonians and it was like Rashi; I'll have to find it again.

comment Tzitzis Thrown Over Shoulder = Still Wearing Them?
Wouldn't the same question apply to someone who wrap their Tallit around their head and throws all four corners over one shoulder?

comment Tzitzis Thrown Over Shoulder = Still Wearing Them?
re your first point: if the minhag is to throw it out of the way when it would be in the way, then even if you aren't fulfilling the mitzva you haven't violated the minhag. So no question from Igros Moshe.

I personally fail to see how this case would be different from the standard Satuday night Havdalah candle, as discussed here.

Why would this be different from Havdala candle on Motzaei Shabbat?

comment Source of Midrash regarding Yaakov's saying Shema
That just makes the question stronger, because how could he have said Shema when coming down to Egypt if it hadn't been invented yet.

Are you referring to אלעזר בן אחוי אמר מכאן זכו ישראל לקרית שמע, בשעה שהיה יעקב אבינו נפטר מן העולם קרא לשנים עשר בניו אמ' להם אל ישראל שבשמים אביכם, שמא יש בלבבכם מחלוקת על הקב"ה, אמרו לו שמע ישראל אבינו, כשם שאין בלבך מחלוקת על הקב"ה, כך אין בלבנו מחלוקת אלא י"י אלהינו י"י אחד, אף הוא פירש בשפתיו ואמר ברוך שם כבוד מלכותו לעולם ועד,
