If you don't know what to do with your spare time, go walk your dog. If you don't have a dog, walk someone else's dog. It's a better way for you to spend your time than what you are doing right now. If you think you don't have any spare time, then you probably don't have a dog.

@user3306356 Perhaps you should read the whole question and answer it the way it is written.

comment Need a word that describes Training and Teambuilding
@jxh - At a military boot camp, they usually tear the soldier down and rebuild him. In other words, they correct bad habits and replace them with good ones.

Boot camp does all that and more.

Wait, are we talking about someone's parents? That could change things.

comment differences between 'ourselves' and 'one another'
What did you find in a dictionary that needs explanation? We all help ourselves by doing and showing some initial research. We help one another by repeating this advice.

comment Is there another word for 'listening' to an answer?
I'm having trouble thinking of a word or short phrase that combines the concepts of "hear" and "understand" without context, but you can reply conversationally to an answer in the following ways: "I see." "I follow." "I get it." It's interesting that the metaphor "I see" conveys understanding better than "I hear you" does.

comment University research or Academic research
Some context would help. Why are you trying to qualify or differentiate it? Quite a bit of industry research takes place at universities, and I would say quite a bit of that type of research could directly be used in some theses or dissertations.

You might try your question at Tex-Latex StackExchange, where typesetting is the main topic.

@FumbleFingers I can swear I didn't see your full comment when I wrote mine. I'll change my answer to community wiki or delete it if you like.

comment Antonym of “deepen”
Google N-gram viewer shows zero usage of "shallow" as a verb (from 1500 to the present year). It has all the appearance of a nonce word that never gained traction. Nobody uses it.

comment Adding a suffix and a prefix to the word “ocean”
@EdwinAshworth I must be missing your point (which seems unnecessarily argumentative, and that may be the cause of my distraction). I don't see how your cited article conflicts with tchrist's inputs on the subject of nonce formation. It looks like unnecessary hair-splitting to me, but that could be a byproduct of trying to be concise. Maybe you can elaborate here in comments or in an answer also addressing the OP's question. What am I missing from your comment?

comment How to pronounce meijer
If they are near your house, have you thought about going there and asking them yourself? I don' t think they use shibboleths to determine who can enter the store.
