comment Word for the building/structure in which primates are kept
:-( When we have great words like Arboretum... I was really hoping for something a little grander sounding than Monkey House.

Not a perfect analogy, but I think it gets the point across.

comment How did “strike” get its baseball meaning?
How does this relate to workers "going on strike"? Could there me some correlation with that use?

comment Do “want to” and “have to” mean the same thing?
To shine like a sun, you should burn like a sun is also gramatically correct.

comment Noun for “person with intermediate skill”
@FumbleFingers Don't tell that to American union workers. Journeyman in the electricians/tile layers/carpenters unions (in my local at least) is a title they work towards. Although on a practical level most of those guys stop there, which could be where the "backhandedness" of the compliment comes from? I have personally never heard it used as anything other than neutral.
