comment Text and Seforim
Can you use words to describe what you are looking for? That seems most precise. Does it need to be searchable? Machine-readable? In a certain file-format?

What is the ellipse for? Doesn't a pdf contain the text?

comment Did Aaron's staff turned into a snake or a crocodile?
I don't know what's clear about your translations. They are non-standard and probably wrong.

comment Can you use electricity on Yom Tov
@RobertS.Barnes Why wouldn't it? They seem identical. (Please remember to ping me @DoubleAA when addressing me in a comment.)

comment Keeping a lulav green and moist
A lulav will really dry out within a week sufficiently to be invalid?

comment Can you use electricity on Yom Tov
@RobertS.Barnes Was your last comment supposed to be addressed to me? If so, I don't know why you posted it. It is completely irrelevant to everything I have said on this page. If you don't justify its existence I may be forced to remove it.

comment What is the exact reason that electrical stunning before shechita is forbidden?
If you can cite which rabbis tested the matter and how they came to their conclusion that would greatly improve your answer. Additionally, citing rabbinic sources to the effect that even the slightest possibility of death renders something a trefa (a claim I find quite preposterous, given that we can Shecht a Mesukkenet) would greatly improve your argument. Right now you have done little to show why we should trust you, given that you are a random internet user.

Which one? Do you have any evidence that electrical stunning can be fatal?

comment Can you use electricity on Yom Tov
@RobertS.Barnes We both know over 98% (over 99.99%?) of otherwise religious Jews don't use it. If your best argument is that there is a giant conspiracy whereby they hide it from me, then that's pretty sad. I don't need reasons to be completely (!) true to show that the Minhag is of equal status to the Minhag by Shabbat. If you want to reject both, then go ahead, but this statement "If you following the minority opinion that electricity is only forbidden on Shabbat due to minhag, then it's not clear why it would be forbidden at all on Yom Tov" is fallacious.

@Shokhet I don't know why a lack of sources was acceptable before, frankly.

comment Did anyone recognize (pray, follow, worship) God between Adam and Avraham?
Is it clear that all those people were believers? Maybe the chain skipped a generation because a grandfather talked to his grandson (or something like that)? That would still form a continuous chain.
