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 Why is the British tv show “the Undatables” not called “the Undatable” without 's'?
OK, I edited the answer so that "undatatable" is now "undatable".

comment the position of “of which”
What is "at best"? Why not "at worst"? At my best behaviour, or at my best attempts at misleading?

Sometimes I would not mind being a hippocrete, if it helps to get my message across. Also, I am among the least down-voting, trigger-happy-closing user here.

Because reverse, the turning of quantitative term into a qualitative term is what people do. But using a qualitative term which has 5 different quantitative means, as a quantitative term is mathematically illogical because you will not know which of the quantitative measure is to be implied. So this question is the domain of mathematics, where the mathematics would explain exactly what I have just explained.

comment What is the origin of “Boxing Day”?
Boxing day is not due to the pugilistic sport but to the use of boxes after christmas day. Employees of shops re-boxing goods that were out of their boxes, either for display or for sale, during the pre-Christmas season. The concept was reinforced by modern consumerism with the sight of boxes being left on the curb for garbage collection, the day after Christmas.As well as the prevalence of consumers returning the goods they had bought, or had "borrowed", and those goods had to be placed back into their boxes.

As I expressed, "size" is a graduated unit. Why are you beating a dead horse?

Anything, that explains and give light to a question is "appropriate" to the question. The intent is to answer the question, not to adhere to whether it falls into the domain of ELU. The question should be, "does the question fall into the domain of ELU", not if the answer.

There are languages today that use the algorithmic structure, even when speaking in the past. e.g., Yesterday I come home, I eat, I sleep and then I will dream.

The people who extracted it from the prayer book had a malapropic inspiration and defaulted into primitive thought patterns and henced algorithmized the language structure.

But, but, but ... wait a minute, size is a graduated unit, like step, level, standard. e.g., That student of form five has a sibling in standard five. Torque, weight, height are not graduated units.

The scholarship and academia of Physics and Mathematics will never allow such ideas to slip and fall. It has been so for the last 1000 years and will not for the next 1000 years. What more, in the reality of today?
