comment Is there a Japanese phrase equivalent to “Chopstick gene”?
The authors wrote about it a number of times, including in a book by one of the authors, Living with Our Genes, which has been translated into Japanese as 『遺伝子があなたをそうさせる』. Maybe find a copy of that book and see what they called it? :-)

comment Japanese joke explanation, brushing teeth in a narrow home
What? I think it's clear what they're asking. They didn't understand 横に, but they eventually figured it out, so they posted an answer in case anyone else has the same problem. I upvoted :-)

comment Need help making sense of this poem
You haven't really asked anything specific about the grammar. Do you have a specific question? You can start by comparing with user4092's translation into Modern Japanese, and look up things you don't understand in a 古語辞典, and then ask again if you have a more specific question about something you still don't get. How's that sound?

comment Mapping 16 English tenses to Japanese tenses
Not really. English only has two tenses, and they don't map cleanly into Japanese.
