@ChibuezeOpata, People who are proud of their ignorance deserve to be offended.

It should be noted that the plural of ignoramus is ignoramuses, not ignorami. youtube.com/watch?v=c3y0CD2CoCs

comment Similar numbers
I would add: "They are practically the same". I hear this a lot and it makes sense. The two things are so similar that for any practical use of one, the other is usable as well.

comment What do you call the activities between actual work?
Mmm, I've never heard of ancillary before, but I think it fits. Also makes me think of auxiliary, which might also work.

comment Is “SSA triangle problems may have zero or two solutions.” an ambiguous statement?
Ha, nice XKCD avatar. Can't it be interpreted the other way though? Wouldn't putting false say that SSA triangles may not have zero or two solutions, which is wrong because they can?

comment Adjective for something that puts you on edge?
Thanks, completely forgot about that one. Though, it's been so overused that it's a bit understated now. Are there any close synonyms?

comment Appositives with possessiveness?
Thanks so much! To be honest, the second sentence you provided was what I figured would be correct, though it sounded quite weird, so I was going to stick with what I had. The last sentence, however, sounds and looks perfectly fine and grammatically correct.

comment Using purgatory to describe a between state?
I think I probably meant limbo. I'm writing a book report on The Catcher in the Rye (sue me now, I'm killing it), and was referring to the "fall" that Mr. Antolini talks to Holden about. I could see the state between adolescence and adulthood described as purgatory, but the state of Holden's fall, would that be limbo, or purgatory?
