    In a nation of more guns than people, and notoriously poor impulse control, being pedantic can get you killed in the right circumstances.

    Does no one wonder why someone might be tied up and need the police? No one?

    Sideways is sort of the direction one goes after being slapped, Lemont.

    Lots of prepositions get bizarre usage. When you chow down, you eat it up.

    When you are “All Tied Up”, you have to dial 911 using your Nose.

    How come people are always “All Tied Up”?

    I’ve never heard anyone described as “Partially Tied Up”.
