comment What might happen if I get very low blood sugar during a run and continue running?
In layman terms: During the aerobic process your muscles burn muscle-sugar (glycogen). Your blood sugar (glucose) is used to replenish the muscle stores. Therefore; if you continue to run, your blood sugar will continue to drop. It is important to note that in ultra-marathons the dissociations, like the one in @JohnP's video, can be caused by hyponatremia. Or, too low blood sodium. Because your body wants to stay in homeostasis, if your sodium drops too low, it will pull sodium from your nervous system. This can cause motor-function loss and even death.

comment How well do chest and back go together in the same workout?
This is the most succinct, honest answer I've read in a while. Everyone is different, there is no magic-routine, it takes a ton of dedication and fine-tuning to achieve a goal. Thank you for being the right kind of physical fitness advocate.

comment What movements are safe to 'do for time'?
Performed correctly is the key. A lot of people are not well versed in what is right/wrong with Olympic lifts. Some things that seem like they should be common sense to some may totally elude others.

comment What time frame might I expect to correct arm rotation?
From a medical background we can never give anyone a definitive time frame. This is because everyone is different. I know it sounds like a cop out; but, it really is true. It depends on why your arms are rotated in. In your post assume (and I agree sounds the most logical) it is from years of being hunched at a keyboard. I think @EricKaufman has your best answer. Put in the work from a well rounded perspective and if you stop seeing results or develop pains seek medical advice.

For clarification purposes. Do you mean: What exercises can I perform quickly; or What exercises will work out the most muscle groups saving me time?

comment How does 200g of toast relate to 500g of weight loss?
Unfortunately, I'm horrible at conversions. I think the point, though, is this: Just because you are at a calorie deficit of 1750 Calories (or half a pound, for example) does not mean you are losing half a pound. Your math (again horrible at conversions so I am assuming) might be correct; but, physiologically it doesn't happen that way.

comment Exercise frequency
If you ever wanted to build muscle I would change your routine. Negatives are also viable if you get "stuck" between your body weight and X#lbs. Negatives focus on the eccentric lengthening of the muscle. In the case of pull ups, you would do the pull up and lower yourself as slowly as possible down to your starting position (then repeat).

comment Will hypothyroidism affect my exercising and or bodybuilding
Typically there are no contraindications for exercise and hypothyroidism. If anything, the exercise helps maintain (or fight) weight gain from having an under-active thyroid. Unfortunately, your hypothyroidism - indications, contraindications, treatments, etc. are out of the scope of this website. Make sure to check with your primary care physician and ask if there is any reason you can't exercise more. Or, if there are signs and symptoms you should be aware of while you are exercising that would suggest a medical emergency.

comment Stride, heart, respiration in sync when running… What's this called?
You experienced a coincidence. Kind of like when you are in a left turn lane and you see all of the left turn signals slowly coming into sync. Since those are mechanical and on timers it will happen again. You may, or may never, notice this again. It isn't, however, indicative of fitness level.
