comment What's a non pejorative way of saying that a woman is bigger?
+1 because I have tried, and failed. I have however had some success with "voluptuous" or "full figured"

comment Word for application that is both sender and receiver
I also work in the software industry, and 'manage' strikes me as an adequate name for something that sends and receives. It 'manages' the messages going to and from somewhere.

comment Is there a season's greeting for Halloween?
I've also heard that Halloween started in the 1800's in Ireland as a way for poor Irish peasants to get back at the rich landowners. This could also be the origination of "Trick or Treat".

comment How popular is 'brefass' in modern American vocabulary?
I would assume the same in regards to the usage of 'brefass' by children, but I was recently having breakfast with several other adults and nearly every person at the table commented 'This is a really great place to get brefass. We should come here more often.'

comment What's an English word that means “a community of experts”?
+1 for the reply, but I'm not sold on 'experts'. I'll meet you have way and suggest 'Community of professionals in crime'. Also, I'm not familiar with 'gaol' is that an acronym or initialization?

But wouldn't the fact that they are convicts cause them to not be experts in crime? Since they are convicts, it is implied that they have been jailed for their crimes, hence they have failed.

comment What is the difference between ‘Hot Corned Beef’ and ‘“Hot” Corned Beef’?
@VonC There is a Broadway Avenue on the other side of town. We also have a city called "Brooklyn" but that has no relation to the borough in New York either. I drove past the store where I saw this sign, and the sign in your picture is identical to the one in the window at the convenience store. The convenience store is called "Ned's Deli", and can be found on Google maps by searching for "West 220th Street and Mastick Road, Fairview Park, Ohio"

@VonC Very funny photo, it is from my city, but from the other side of town. Perhaps there is one company making these signs for convenience stores and restaurants in Cleveland, Ohio.
