comment “When I was in college…” Do you really mean college? Or university?
@Luis No, that's not right. He would say "When I was in medical school". Peter is right that college means undergraduate program.

comment Is “The Walking Dead” a personification?
I like your analysis and generally agree with the comment here that it is literal and doublespeak. As a side note, your spoiler doesn't seem to have any implication on whether or not the title works as doublespeak. It should have nothing to do with what kind of state they're in after they die. I'd say it works as doublespeak purely because their death is inevitable/fated due to the condition they're in.

comment I got first place in a competition where it's possible to tie. How would I distinguish that I was an untied first?
Agreed with the previous two comments -- if you 'came in first' you came in first without tying. If you tied with someone else, you "tied for first."

comment What does the phrase “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish” mean?
Hah! Even if he did believe in reincarnation, it's just an expression easily replaced with carpe diem or YOLO or whatever you like.

comment What is a word to describe how something bad looks good because it is being contrasted with something worse?
You might say something like "Even is really dumb. Mark isn't very smart, but he's a genius by comparison." See 'better by comparison': english.stackexchange.com/questions/65176/…
