Well, OK. I plead ignorance. :) You're right about that. (I thought they were different.)

Really? Cite please.

Certainly Washington and most of the others who had military experience before that had. We can be certain Britain expected that any protestant who was a subject in the...

So, I agree 100%. But the response of the fool's gallery is "but Washington and Jefferson were also traitors". So it matters what they were traitors to and why. He was a traitor against the US. He...

Tailgating when one is in a rush for some dire need is not any better than the other reasons. It isn't likely to get one there faster and increases the chances that others will be in dire need.

I once lived in a very old Japanese place with a tub literally just big enough to squat in (for me - and I was very slim). It was nothing but a big bucket or a small barrel. But it was gas heated and...

I agree. Most baths simply aren't designed for it. Which is why I miss that when I'm away from home.

More of a FWP but the thing I hate most about being away from Japan is not having a decent hot bath. The day doesn't feel complete to me without a bath in the evening. (And, dw would insist,...

The English language has several future tenses. None of them requires putting the words "moving forward" somewhere in the sentence.

This example involves a (possible) right of the people so it depends very much on how one interprets the ninth amendment. I would say that it leaves the argument wide open - i.e. not sounding idiotic...
