I heard a similar story but I think the boy was required to give a get.
I once heard a story from a friend that  when he was a bochur in a yeshiva (near the home of @meivinyavin ) a freind of his  realized when learning kidushin that he had a problem. Years earlier he had been hanging out with some friends (boys and girls) when he played a claw grab game and one a little prize. One of the girls asked him for the prize and he replies if i give it to you will you marry me to which she replied yes and he gave it to her. Supposedly the rosh yeshiva Harav M. paskened that will you marry me is a loshon of the girl marrying him (being mekadesh him ) and not him being mekadesh her and therefore does not require a get.

AFAIK Its a tshuva/story from Reb Moshe Feinstein and quite old

similar stories  of teens playing around happened many times with many rabbonim. This was a unique psak (if true ) bec. of the loshon of will you marry me

I seem to remember that RMF case was a mock wedding, and he did require a get, and he took care of that himself... or it just may be urban legend

IINM there are 3 tshuvos. The longest one is about a case with no kosher eidim. But then he talks about the theoretical case if there were.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

As a levi, when they try to give me the next aliya, I tell them I'm a levi, and they go find someone else.

If its a shul that knows that I'm a levi, they dont call me after a yisroel.

I would assume that your question is in a case that the gabai did not know the halacha... I dont know, I ve never had the occasion to see that.

THIS

https://www.dirshu.co.il/29094-2/

I see the halacha that a Levi should not be called 2nd.

My question was (and this happened today) that the Levi was called up by the Gabbai (by mistake) and there was a discussion what should happen next.
Bepoiel the Levi did not get the aliya, and the gabbai took it on his own. Not sure the makor looking for that and was that the correct psak

What is wrong with the Levi taking it.
(in the case of a Kohen, they may suspect him of being pagum, ben grusha r something similar, but with a Levi- what is the chashash?)

the mishna berura on the quote says people may say the 1st oileh was a cohen

Why should it make a difference if they called his name?
Being that this Halacha is a Gemara (the way the Rishonim understood it) and there is a potential yichus miss understanding that can result, my uneducated guess is that that was the right psak.

https://www.koltorah.org/halachah/halachic-perspectives-on-pets-part-i-by-rabbi-howard-jachter

   12.  A number of authorities disapprove of keeping animals as pets, such as Rabbi Yehudah HaChasid (Sefer Chassidim number 1038), who condemns owning birds as "adding nonsense" (Midrash Kohelet 6:11 seems to be the source for this statement).  He adds that the money one spends on these birds should have been donated to charity.  The Sephardic Halachic authority, Rabbi Chaim Pelaggi (Tochachat Chaim, Parshat Beshalach, page 126) cites this opinion of Rabbi Yehuda HaChasid.  Rabbi Yaakov Breisch (Chelkat Yaakov 3:87) also writes that it is inconsistent with the spirit of Judaism to own a dog.  However, he does not offer any proof to this assertion.  In addition, a number of authorities object to owning dogs based on Kabbalistic teachings (Pele Yoetz, s.v. Kelev).  However, these comments have not been incorporated into mainstream Halachic works such as the Shulchan Aruch.  It should be noted, though, that it is unquestionably permissible for a blind person to own a guide dog.  These dogs are well-trained and do not pose any danger.  In addition, owning such an animal does not mimic "the abhorrent behavior of the uncircumcised" since the owner has a great need for the dog.  It also should be noted that a number of rabbinic authorities believe placing a bird into a cage to be a violation of Tzaar Baalei Chaim - the prohibition against causing unnecessary pain to animals (see Rabbi J. David Bleich, Contemporary Halachic Problems, volume three, page 195, footnote 3).

I am surprised that  you consider the no talking in shul keren tosfos yom tov movement unrelated to you. That did appear to be  your raison d'etre . The tag was meant to be a compliment.

Would appear to be something that is eaten as part of a satiating dish and not generally served לקינוח, so it is probably considered באים מחמת הסעודה and even when eaten לקינוח it would be בטלה דעתו.
