comment Cardinality of all lines on $\mathbb R^{2}$ which do not contain point $(x,y)\in l$ where $x, y \in \mathbb Q$
Yep, though Ma.H did mention that the upper bound was obvious, so I didn't elaborate. (Though never hurts to give the complete argument).

comment Cardinal arithmetic: $b\ge x>1$ and $b^2=b$ implies $x^b=2^b$
It's the only answer, so as bad as it is... :-) (Maybe if I remove the dependence on AC I'll get a vote?)

How many irrationals are there? (If there are $\aleph_0$ rationals and $2^{\aleph_0}$ total real numbers, then ...) There is one horizontal line for each irrational. This will give you a lower bound (since there are lots of non-horizontal lines that miss rational points) on the number of lines you are looking for.

comment Stone-Cech compactification problem
Yeah, and for general spaces, i guess the same argument should work (if one is okay with non-Hausdorff compactification.)

comment Size of the closure of a set
Yes, I wouldn't be surprised if there weren't an independence result here, something like $\text{MA}+2^{\aleph_0}=\aleph_2$ implying that every separable, sequentially-compact, (+compact?) space is $\leq\aleph_2$. For example, there's the result that if $\mathfrak{c}\leq\aleph_2$ then every compact, sequentially-compact space is pseudo-radial, etc.
