Come unto me, all ye who are weary of heavy-laden clients and I will give you REST.

Agile is the substance of features planned for, the avoidance of milestones unseen.

comment “like a duck takes to water” vs “like a fish takes to water”
I think the phrase you read is a compounded malapropism of Like fish out of water and Like duck takes to water. If you have the opportunity, you should write to the editorial contact of the article to point out their misconception.

comment Why do people often say 'hambag' for 'handbag'?
I need to apologize for my misconception and predisposition. As thus far, I haven't yet any opportune misfortune to encounter persons capable of well-refined discourses, but who are unabashed about "I am a bona fide RP speaker".

comment What kind of fallacy is it when someone points out the main flaw in his proposition before anyone can criticize it?
It is not a fallacy. It is a strategy. A preemptive strategy. A preemptive reflexive strategy - to first point out the perceived weakness and in reflex use its mitigation as a magnet to coagulate the effectiveness of your strategy.

There is no point looking for the fringes of society and outliers to prove your point. They are fringes, and their being on the fringes de-necessitates your question.

comment Why are Leicester & co pronounced as they are?
"There are many words with more than 3 syllables" - as I stated, such words are broken into groups, where the pronunciation of each group conforms to the three syllable patterns.

comment Word to describe an email missing an attachment
I dislike the silly sentence structure of "Ever blah blah blah?" It is very annoying and confusing. The grammar is unusual, abnormal and unusable as well. "Have you ever .... ?" - that is the better way of saying it.

comment What do I call physical quantities if they are not physical?
The person who down-voted must have been annoyed by my simplistic correlation of a field to a database column.
