comment If it's incorrect to “learn” someone, then why is “learned man” correct?
I think you hit it on the head; to say that someone is a learn-ed man would be to say that he is someone who is well-learned. One can learn for themselves or one can teach others but one cannot learn someone else, although it IS okay to teach yourself and to learn from others.

comment Alternatives to the expression “poor man's <noun>”
well, maybe not for oyster. but for the guncotton/TNT one it would fit. It DOES work to mean an improvised and possibly inferior substitute, so yep.

No, I think that peter is telling neil that his choice to bankroll adler, in order to run a con on him, was the choice that allowed peter and the fbi to get their first visual of neil. In essence hes telling neil that it WASN'T worth it, since it led to peter catching neil, eventually.

comment Why is the apostrophe spelling of 'Doh!' so common?
You know, now that I think about it, it feels more like there's a bit of a pause BEFORE the "d"... at least, the way homer says it. But I suppose Dan C. Is the authority on this one... :)

comment However in the middle of a sentence
Which commas? There's s lot of them... you mean the first "...lecture, however,...", right? (Wow, that sentence was comma crazy; did I do it right? I have doubts inside the quotes. :) )

I would say "far too long" but you didn't ask that.
