People who won't commit themselves to an exact frequency of blog posts, but say they're intending to post at least one a week on average, but then don't, and then they don't apologise for misleading their loyal reader.

You've offended a fair few on here already Dave, so let's not take this any further. Mkay?

Really? I thought we'd got vaguely thick-skinned around here. Not to mention being a bunch of godless heathens.

That's true, however religion's always going to be something people stand for, being that it's a belief in something higher than all of us. Of course there's no issue in being an atheist, however saying that someone's stupid and not to be trusted for believing in one's completely disrespectful and removing of somebody's rights. I'm not asking for an argument/debate/spam thread but being a Christian I'm prepared to stand up for what I believe in.

You spoke for lots of people in your earlier comment, much better to speak for yourself, and let everyone else speak up if they want to I reckon. And nobody said anything about people being stupid! (Unless I missed it)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Add to my list of people you shouldn't trust: James S Roper for being as thick as shit! Oh... AND anyone who isn't an Atheist... PLUS, anyone without thick skin!

In the same vein, people who habitually add things like "Just saying" or "Just putting that out there" immediately after saying something. Clearly they know that what they're saying is at least somewhat contentious, and if they're that afraid of people reacting badly then they should just not say it in the first place.

I'm not sure I entirely agree with all of this. Sometimes stuff needs to be said and it's awkward to say it, so you naturally start umming and ahhing about it. I'm not saying I condone those specific phrases but some "padding" might get said. And being uncomfortable saying it doesn't mean you shouldn't say it.

No offence, but you're both cunts.

Oh of course, everyone fumbles sometimes when speaking off the cuff. Those two phrases I highlighted (along with "No offence but") are things that you quite often see people very deliberately say though, often in typed messages, as though it's going to actually make what they're saying any less controversial/awkward/offensive and exempt them from any kind of backlash. Maybe you're lucky enough not to have witnessed this.

Yeah, I suppose the bit I mainly disagreed with was "and if they're that afraid of people reacting badly then they should just not say it in the first place." rather than the actual sayings.

That's just an American vs. British spelling thing though, isn't it? It's normal in America to use the -ED ending and it's normal here to use the -T ending.

Or do you just mean British people who use the -ED ending? Do you think they want to be American because they write it like that? Does it matter if they do? I'm not even sure I'd parse the difference unless I was looking for it anyway.

The thing that annoys me about the ice bucket challenge is the whole "you have 24 hours" thing. What's supposed to happen if I don't do it? I wouldn't mind doing it, the cold doesn't bother me, I have cold showers all the time, but I'm less likely to do something if it involves some sort of vague threat. It's like people who post stuff on facebook that says stuff like "wonder how many people have the balls to re-post this". It's one way to guarantee that I will not re-post it.

The sabre-toothed tiger (smilodon) is the most recent of a number of species of sabre-toothed cats that have existed from time to time.

The thing is that people say they're not sabre-toothed tigers but sabre-toothed cats because they're not actually tigers. Well:

1. Killer whales aren't whales, but that's their name.

2. Are they really even cats? The "official" family name is Felidae but we informally call them cats, because cats are the most familiar animal to most of us in this family. That's why actual cats don't have another name - because it's not really a family name. If, for example, I ran a tiger sanctuary, tigers would be the most familiar animal to me in this family, so I might call it the tiger family - the family that has tigers in. Obviously someone might then argue that calling them the cat family has become common usage so that's now its meaning, but that does nothing here because I can call sabre-toothed tigers "sabre-toothed tigers" for that very reason!

Whether you like it or not, the term cat refers to any member of the family Felidae. You could also use the term felid, but in most contexts that would sound somewhat pretentious. If at any time you need to emphasise that you are talking about the species commonly kept as a pet, you can call this a domestic cat.

I'm 100% happy with sabre-toothed tiger. Smilodon is good too. But in your original statement it is unclear whether the person is equating sabre-toothed tiger and sabre-toothed cat, which is plain wrong, or whether they in fact understand the distinction, in which case it is you who has missed the point.

I'm not sure there is a distinction though. Smilodon might be the most commonly talked about species, but generally speaking people who use the term "sabre-toothed" cat are referring to all of them, and implicitly (or explicitly) saying that the term "sabre-toothed tiger" is wrong. Also, people who use the term "sabre-toothed" tiger would not necessarily limit themselves to smilodon. In short, I don't think many people use both terms. ODO doesn't distinguish between cat/tiger although it says "in particular Smilodon" under the entry for both.

And why would that be? Was Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother not trustworthy?

Edit: Used correct tense
It has to be the same year as well.

But probably not anyway.
People who use birthday when they mean birthdate.

I think these should all be turned into one long list, and we should see who the least trustworthy person on here is.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

True, I sneeze three times most mornings.

Once got to the magical eight in a row, and it's not as good as I was led to believe.

I did five in a row this morning and did wonder what the fuck was going on and whether or not it would ever stop, because you know, sneezing for the rest of your life would be a bit of a bummer.

As it turned out, my head had somehow become lodged in a large Mason jar containing the remnants of some sort of Cayenne concoction and once removed, the sneezing stopped. Scared me for a moment there, though, like.
