Did anyone ever hear of NH Hotels? Are they part of any regular hotel chain?

Why do air dusters cost so much?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Supply and demand.
Nobody really uses them.
BTW I've seen them for a dollar at Dollar tree in Lakewood.

Why is Menard's still in business?
I was in one the other day and after 15 Aisles of Home improvement items, was the milk and cereal aisle.
And the store was empty.

Is there anyplace in tanach that a person asked for a bracha from a different person?

From my limited recollection it seems like it was always offered first. Except by the Malach and yaakov. But that wasn't a person. Eisav was also initially offered then asked.

Don't know of any in Tanach (though my knowledge of Nach is not good) , but the gemara in Berachos (7a) says Hashem asked for a bracha:

תניא: אמר רבי ישמעאל בן אלישע: פעם אחת נכנסתי להקטיר קטורת לפני ולפנים, וראיתי אכתריאל יה ה' צבאות, שהוא יושב על כסא רם ונשא, ואמר לי "ישמעאל בני, ברכני! אמרתי לו: "יהי רצון מלפניך, שיכבשו רחמיך את כעסך, ויגולו רחמיך על מדותיך, ותתנהג עם בניך במדת הרחמים, ותכנס להם לפנים משורת הדין" ונענע לי בראשו'. וקא משמע לן שלא תהא ברכת הדיוט קלה בעיניך.

I noticed that I never get ads on any YouTube video that is embedded here. Is that true for all people?

Check out @hasidic_1s Tweet: ?s=09

Is it traditional for satmar/ other chasidim to say yechi? Or is this a new thing.

I always thought it was a chabad thing only.

Not sure the answer. But I'm sure you noted the key difference that this isn't kefirah...

Why does everyone push wa so much these days?

Case in point: https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/headlines-breaking-stories/1722739/ywn-giveaway-1000-cash.html

The deal groups also, one in particular pushes it so much it's unbearable.

What's so special about wa that they go to such great lengths for it?
