comment Is there any slang word for somebody who doesn't show up for a date?
@JanusBahsJacquet Yeah, that's true, it'd require context.

This isn't correct, RAY is asking for a slang term for the person, not the action. "He's a stand up" doesn't make any sense.

comment Word a male can use to refer to a female that is not old or young (girl/lady/woman)
Or no context: "I met (with) someone today, she told me The Hobbit was a terrible book."

Calling someone a flake is also appropriate: "Jack is such a flake."

Or it's blasphemous, commanding God to bless America.

comment Should we use plural or singular for a fraction of a mile?
"Point two five of a mile" seems a bit more awkward than "Point two five miles"

comment “Y'all” or “ya'll”?
Ya'll could be a contraction of ya all, since ya is sometimes used in place of you.

comment What is the meaning of “greasing the pan”?
Further elaboration: When you cook things on a pan, you generally grease/oil/butter up the pan first to make sure whatever you cook doesn't stick.

I like it, I was just thinking of "xenotoxin" but yours seems more of a marketable term, if such a thing did exist. Thanks!

@coleopterist Well, I'm mainly going by these: dictionary.reference.com/browse/rodenticide and dictionary.reference.com/browse/pesticides

@MarkBeadles, You're right about the suffix, but I think the stem is rodent- with the connective vowel -i-.

But what I am trying to convey is a physical thing, whereas genocide and xenocide aren't.

comment Are “smith” and “blacksmith” synonymous?
I don't disagree that my example is rare, it was more to point out that smith by itself could allude to something else besides blacksmith. Even without my example, you say it could refer to any number of smithing professions, so the answer to @Mujeeb is "No, not always."
