comment Separate Ketchup Bottles
Hey @AlwaysLearning, I can kinda see where you're going with this, but perhaps you can expand it further. Perhaps include more of an explanation of nitzuk chibur and how it applies to ketchup bottles. Thanks!

comment Didn't Shem already have an altar on Moriah?
+1 Further, the Rambam brings the idea that Adam, Cain, Abel, and Noach all built altars on that site. According to this, it seems unlikely that Noach's son Shem didn't know/appreciate the significance of the location, and if he did, did he have an altar? And if he didn't, why not?

comment What is the benefit of humroth (stringencies)?
Are you asking what we get from observing chumros, or what makes chumros more desirable to G-d (if they are), or merely looking for a source for observing chumros? (For example: "אמר רבא קדש עצמך במותר לך" -Yevamos 20a ) Also, regarding your first assumption, don't forget the gemara in Taanis 11a-b, where the Amoraim discuss whether voluntary fasts are good or bad, using kal vachomers from the nazir.
