comment What does 看得开 and 看不开 mean?
Yes, you get the gist of it. I manage to find this on Baidu which says 看开: 不把不如意的事情放在心上. So, in a sense, it means don't keep thinking about those bad events, and this corresponds to being optimistic.

comment Does “坊” also mean “square”, “plaza”, “piazza” like “广场”?
I would say it is just one of the several reasons. 街坊,茶坊,工作坊,etc, possess the same connotation too.

Maybe have to trace back to the history of Chinese chess, gunpowder and cannon? In 汉典, it says (1) “炮”假借为“砲”.

comment Variants of 将在外,君命有所不受?
I don't think 君命(君王的命令) is the same as 军令(军事上所发布的命令). A general can issue a 军令, but not a 君命.
