comment A word to make something bad sound good
See the terminology used in the answers to this question: Positive euphemisms for desert?. Try "positive connotation".

comment Expression for losing something that you never really had
I would call that one luck! Every theory has an edge case, and that is certainly an edge case. Nice answer, though!

That's it, when this question is asked I'm an old man.

comment Why did Old Testament scholars choose to employ “to know” in a sexual sense?
@AndrewLazarus: Thank you for mentioning that, it might make things clearer for those who don't speak Hebrew. If you say "אני יודע אותה" there is no confusion: you mean that you have had sexual relations. In the non-sexual sense it would be "אני מכיר אותה".

comment Why is the word “Holy” used before swear words?
Excrement is not holy? Excrement is derived from food, and some cultures pray before consuming food. For those people, those same materials in the excrement were blessed only hours previous.

comment Hypernym of “move” and “copy”
@Raestloz: I'm not sure about that, especially on ext4 where the inode could just point from a different directory. You are right in the case of transferring a file from one filesystem to another, though. But that is right only from the perspective of how the filesystem works. Using the cp flag -a for instance preserves the atime, mtime, and other attributes so the end result is "as if" the file was never in any other location.
