comment did “born and bred” originally have different meaning?
so WS2, are you saying that the British meaning of "bred and born in Britain" is akin to "born in Britain to parents who lived in Britain at the time of conception"? Or would 'bred and born' have same meaning as 'born and bred'?

comment Opposite of Envy
+1 terrific answer. I would point out that number 2 contrasts with jealousy, while we are trying to contrast with envy -- and jealousy and envy are slightly different (though whoever wrote #2 might have actually meant to say "contrasted with jealousy or envy")

+1 Now I dislike Halliburton even more!

comment Opposite of Envy
-1 because "contentedness" does not address how the emotion was inspired by observing another person (whereas "envy" clearly does -- so its opposite must, too)
