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."

comment Men who are lured by the seductive beauty of women are called?
I would argue that the question did not specify that the "fooling" needed to be an intentional act by the female so the final point is moot.

comment Men who are lured by the seductive beauty of women are called?
This is more of a philosophical answer than a literal one. No dictionary is going to include the definition "Human: one who is lured by the seductive beauty of the opposite sex".

comment Legos not LEGO?
@Eno Bullocks. ;) I find that hard to believe. Probably the very first trademarked words to become generic, linoleum, was invented by an Englishman. The word sellotape is used instead of Scotch Tape (adhesive tape) in England, Ireland, Australia and many other countries. Hoover is still a trademark in the US, but is now generic in the UK…

comment What does “vanilla” mean in the context of gaming?
I find it ironic that what I find is one of the most interesting and enjoyable flavours has come to mean "bare minimum" or "no-frills" flavour.
