comment Is there any relationship between this “a can of whoop ass” and the really whoop ass can?
Unless you were to say, "Wow. Look at that gal with the really whoop-ass can." But still no relationship with the act of "opening" or a "can" in the product sense.

comment Use of “of” to define objects?
"Of America" | "Of Cambodia" - Not sure that there is a term because both are are descriptors (adjectives) of the nouns: "States" and "Kingdom." Also, both are political entities, so there's that similarity. Can you provide detail on what you are trying to write or justify?

comment Use of “permission” in technical writing
Thou arte correct. I was referencing the UK-spelling ("authorised" vs. "authorized") which I like, but is a sticking-point for many of my readers.
