comment Word for “someone who does the same job as me”
You know what? The quote reminded me of something. I don't have my set of James Bond movies, but I remember that in one of them, M (the female M) says something like "Admiral Something, my THE-WORD-WE-ARE-LOOKING-FOR in Japan, is [...]". There should be the word. I can't remember if it's counterpart or a more specific one, but if anyone can look it up, it be worth the try...

comment Word for “someone who does the same job as me”
I know there is a word beginning with con-. I said it to someone about a year ago, but I'm having troubles remembering it.

comment Using abbreviations incorrectly?
It's mainly because "I do it like this" is an affirmative sentence, while "do I not?" is an interrogative one. Therefore, in the latter, the auxiliary verb has to come first. Now try using the short form. The negation and the auxiliary are united, and the position they occupy is the one of the auxiliary.

comment To put on the thinking cap
I've given it an up vote, but I have a question about the grammar. Shouldn't you have written "[...] IS the cap that [...]" or "[...] was the cap that Gyro WORE when he NEEDED"? I'm asking because I can still improve on how I use the tenses so if I am wrong, I could benefit from a clarification.
