comment Is there a saying or proverb for a situation where the weakest party will always lose?
I came here to post that "survival of the fittest" as an answer, with the caveat that it is an oversimplification of evolutionary theory, but I like your word "corruption" even better. ;-)

comment Is there an inverse of the word “consignment”?
@tyler I think that first quoted paragraph is a good summary, and as plain as any English prose I've read. :)

comment Meaning/origin of “You bet” as a response to “Thank you”
@JefersonOliveira I've never felt that the phrase you bet was in any way rude or flippant. To me, it is a more enthusiastic response than a simple you're welcome. You bet means "you can bet on it" — it is a way of saying "you can always expect the same from me."
