As I understand the rules, they vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. So whatever you read online is very likely to apply where you live, although it may be correct for where the poster lives.
Brothers don’t always get along well …
And not just in “obscure” circles. Some years back, Consumer Reports did a study of then-available music-playing gadgetry. They had 2 groups of testers: professional sound technicians and professional musicians. A major result was that the technicians all agreed fairly well, as did the musicians, but the two groups were wildly different in their rankings. The techies gave high values to accurate production of the music, “warts and all”, including audience noise, background noise, etc. The musicians preferred being able to hear all the music clearly, and liked anything that improved that, such as cutting out low and/or high frequencies and other artifacts that interfered with understanding the music. This wasn’t surprising in retrospect, of course.
Or maybe a fnetik speling.
Maybe true in your idiolect. But there are lots of situations where phrases like “very unique” is a compact way of describing reality. One I’ve seen is to describe things that are common in some parts of the world, but occur only in isolation in other areas. Thus, along the “ring of fire” around the edges of the Pacific Ocean, volcanoes are common, and you can often see several of them from a single place. But there are many examples of single volcanoes that aren’t part of any chain. There are also small volcanic “hot spots” that have a few local vents, but there are no others within hundreds of km. I’ve seen phrases like “locally unique” to describe such isolated geological things. The geologists will just grin if you criticise the logic behind their terminology.
Various biologist and other people have pointed out that all human children are born atheists, and have to be taught about their local dominant god(s). And before humans, all animals were life-long atheists.
Yeah, mostly, but their top campaign contributors aren’t losers. They’ve been winning bigly for several decades now, by paying for the changes in US laws that are letting them drain most of the population’s coffers into their offshore accounts.
einarbt got the spacing wrong; s/he should have said “the intelligence of them asses”. (In some English dialects, them’s the correct cases for them words. Your dialect may differ.)
It might have been funnier if Opus now had a real penguin-style beak. ;-)
Yeah, but they were also probably quite tasty. ;-)
