comment Everyday German. How to correctly order? Say, beer, pizza and ice cream
Two more practical additions: when ordering "Weizen" only you always will have to answer the following in the south of Germany "Hefe? Hell oder dunkel?". Chocolate icecream will be short "Eine Kugel Schoko" rather than "Schokolade".

comment Polite alternatives to “Grüß Gott”?
Yeah "Mahlzeit", and "Feierabend" is used very often. I would not consider this as a polite salutation but it definitely is not impolite either. In an official/business setting I would not recommend using it.

comment Haferschleim vs Haferbrei
@640miles: never heard of "Grützbrei" myself but I would say it is somewhere in between Grütze and Brei.

comment Are “lassen” and “sich lassen”, when used causatively, interchangeable?
No idea, I just wouldn't say "Morgen lasse ich mir mein Auto reparieren" this sounds rather odd.

yeah - shouting "Stop!" is meant for situations like e.g. when kids start running on the street without looking.

"Er lässt sich seine Haare schneiden" geht aber auch. Beim Auto hingegen funktioniert das nicht.

Reworded question and made a table of content for better readability. Feel free to further split or add other situations, above is just a framework from what we have. If somebody feels like having spare time we may also think of adding English translations to the answers.
