comment Earliness: the quality of being early
The early bird gets its name from being early from Winter (migrating back, before the Spring), I think, so although I like your suggestion, it hints to circularity in definition.

comment Earliness: the quality of being early
@Alain: that's an interesting suggestion! I like the way you think. Perhaps I could say "vernal celerity." Many thanks.

comment Where does “Look yourself in the mirror” come from?
I've heard this all my life, so I think it's probably just recency illusion [which sounds equally fascinating], but I think that "look myself in the eye" is a lot more common (even though both are pretty common... in this corner of the English universe anyway).

comment What is the difference between 20$ and $20?
It would actually be pretty useful in discouraging forging of numbers if we padded all the whole number with dollar signs... $362$ !

comment Verbs of inaction
What are you trying to describe with such a word? Like when would you use it? To emphasize someone is slacking, or to try and convey a deeper philosophy about it?

comment Is there a rule about double negations that aren't meant as double negations (e.g. “We don't need no education”)?
+1 for fancy words I did not know until now
