Note the Rambam says Simcha applies to all the days of the festival mechon-mamre.org/i/3406.htm#16

comment Who should say the half kaddish after reading the Torah?
Why would this be different from any other Kaddish said in the middle of Davening that the Chazan says?

comment Prohibition of causing mitzta'er on Yom Tov
That article about showering is severely lacking. Consider these alternatives: hirhurim.blogspot.com/2007/09/yom-tov-hygiene-hot-shower.html yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/749147/Rabbi_Aryeh_Lebowitz/… daat.ac.il/daat/english/journal/broyde-wagner-1.htm nishmat.net/Uploads/files/…

comment Prohibition of causing mitzta'er on Yom Tov
"always comes up for this mitzvah is the permission not to sleep in the sukkah if it causes one to suffer." What? That's not an example of this alleged prohibition. On Sukkot the Mitzva is to live in your Sukkah as you'd live in your house. If living in your Sukkah is bothersome such that you'd leave it were it your house, you are exempt. Nothing to do with Yom Tov or any prohibition (or even sleeping; the same applies to any other activity).

Note as well that going swimming in the ocean probably wouldn't work even Deorayta without at least a Hefsek Tahara.

comment How much wine should women drink at the Pesach seder?
The Shulchan Arukh just says women are obligated with no distinctions. Are you looking for a source which specifically says "they are obligated like men even though [concerns XYZ]?"

comment Is there any source that says that women should / should not get drunk on Purim?
@whocares Putting those two facts together doesn't yield any conclusion. Your argument just doesn't follow. Kids not having the psychological makeup to have Simcha on Purim says nothing about women who are adults.

DanF @NoachmiFrankfurt remember that there is no question you can roll it Fri night as that is already the next day.

@Daniel Specifically Friday/Shabbos. Otherwise there wouldn't be an Eruv Tavshilin.

comment Why do we need dishes designated specifically for Pesah?
I'm confused. How is this different from asking why we don't use utensils which absorbed pork? Are you asking about using Chametz dishes on Pesach or to prepare, before Pesach, food for Pesach?
