comment What else could have come out of Yiftach's house?
I was under the impression that "beisi" is a general term that may refer to one's house, one's wife, or one's physical possessions (for example see Shabbos 118b-"Ishti zu beisi"). What more general word should have been used?

comment What do you do if you forgot to turn off the refrigerator light before Shabbat?
As far as intentions are concerned, this is a perfect case of "p'sik reishei".

comment First it says everyone had their own language; but then it says all spoke one before being split
Simchashatorah. It is common knowledge that the Torah is not in chronological order. Your question is predicated on a false assumption, namely that because the pasuk comes later, it must have happened later. At the very least, you should first ask "are these pesukim in chronological order?", and then continue with your question.

comment Does G_d get incarnated?
Shalom, saying G-d "can't" is a fallacy. By definition of omnipotent, you cannot say that G-d is incapable of something. In essence, you've stumbled upon the paradox of attempting to describe the infinite. It cannot be done. Judaism applies adjectives to G-d only insofar as he has applied those same attributes to himself (and us- m'bsari echze Elokai). But those are not limiters on G-d. Describing G-d's essence is a dangerous pursuit, prone to lots of contradictions, mostly because hasagos hamehus is beyond us. Interesting article on this

comment What ingredients are dairy?
@Chanoch as Menachem pointed out in his more recent answer to the same question (here), sometimes mistakes are made. Checking the ingredients is always a very good idea for a product you're not familiar with.

While there may be a commentary that addresses this, in my opinion you don't have a question at all, because the Torah is not in chronological order.

Just to point out that the Soton, the Yetzer Hara, and the Malach Hamoves (angel of death) are all one and the same
