comment Dynamics of RSK
@darijgrinberg: I think there is still something to flipping the octahedron upsidedown; I will try to understand precisely Example 5 from arxiv.org/abs/math/0703414.

comment counting how many boxes from a given Young tableau contribute to hook length made out of two YTs
This is a potentially interesting question, but it would be helpful to have some context. For instance, you use the tag representation theory (and not combinatorics!) so presumably there is some representation lurking here, but you don't spell it out...

comment Motivation behind the construction of Deligne and Lusztig
This recent article of Lusztig's also seems quite relevant: arxiv.org/abs/1409.8003.

comment exceptional cases in Kazhdan-Lusztig
Can you clarify your notation here? Does the $1$ subscript denote untwisted affine Lie algebra?

comment How to find the generic initial ideal?
By the way, it might be worth mentioning that this book is by Ezra Miller and Bernd Sturmfels.

comment What will be the consequences if second Hardy-Littlewood conjecture turns out to be true?
You might be interested in this answer of Terry Tao to a related question, which says "I don't recommend putting too much time into taking random conjectures in number theory and trying to figure out what they imply": mathoverflow.net/a/190892/25028
