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.

comment What is the best word for “kitchen products” on an e-commerce website?
@erich As a noun, that would be the chef or cook, and doesn't encompass "all things used in a kitchen". Your link doesn't include the adjective form, but the adjective means "or or related to a kitchen or cookery" (for which "culinary" also would work). I don't think either definition of culinary (the noun or the adjective) really works to describe "things used in a kitchen".

comment What would the antonym of “tempt” be?
While the title and the question aren't artfully written, together they are a perfect example of why you should actually read the question to understand it.

comment Can you ask a question without a question mark?
From a prescriptivist POV, you're right. From a descriptivist POV, it answers the question "Can you ask..." It may depend on what your definition of "ask" is. And I challenge you to tell me who would disagree with "I'm making coffee..."

None of the above. If it fell off my plate then obviously there is not enough macaroni.

comment Number text followed by numeral in parentheses
It would be more important as a disambiguation for numbers like billion (and jillion, zillion, squillion, gazillion, kazillion, bajillion, and bazillion).
