comment Why only beautify two peyoth?
Citing sources for this explanation that you've "always heard" would improve this post dramatically. It's hard for anyone to figure out why a certain practice applies in specific circumstances without details of it, let alone if it even exists or you are reporting it correctly.

comment Why only beautify two peyoth?
I don't really follow why the two different Mitzvot should be the same. Do you also want to beautify Peot of the field? Why should the fact that both relate to corners be relevant?

comment Can Jews raise pets (cats, dogs, swine)?
"without authority" Actually, it does so with authority. As discussed above it is reflecting the will of God.

comment Could a Cohen burn a body to escape the impurity?
@mevaqesh Doesn't the Gemara explicitly say that it's better to be naked than wear Shaatnez Deoraita?

comment Could a Cohen burn a body to escape the impurity?
Technically he'd have to burn the corpse so thoroughly that even the skeleton doesn't remain (Rambam Tumat Meit 3:9-10). Since it's a hypothetical I suppose we can assume that he is capable of this.

comment When you're trapped by someone Davening behind you
In prepping for your Shiur did you happen to come across an opinion that someone Davening in front of a public "thoroughfare" (eg. the aisle) can't prohibit others from walking in front of him because it's not his to forbid (it's the public's and they were their first)? A sorta Choshen Mishpat-esque Svara. I know I saw it once and have never been able to track it down.

@DanF What you should make of it is to ignore on this matter the Chumashim that don't have a psik.

comment Dairy or pareve black coffee:
@Cauthon If it was nat bar nat on a ben yomo then lekhatchila you can't put chicken into the coffee. That's what I said above. If it was nat bar nat on an eino ben yomo then you could even put chicken in. Again that's all assuming the pipe hasn't been kashered by intervening cups of coffee (an easier claim than that of the Rashba in the Tur YD 93).
