comment What's the opposite of eye candy?
"Eye candy" is frequently used within the design community to denote something that has no other purpose other than making thing appear prettier. Personally, I have heard "Eye candy" applied to interface elements much more than to people.

comment “When people do make changes” - which tense is this?
So I guess based on the link you have provided the tense is present simple?

comment Does the term “Postal Authority” Make sense?
Indeed, it seems quite a few bodies define themselves as regulator authorities (like Ofcom). I never noticed that until now. Still looks odd to me, but I take your word for it that there is nothing unusual about it.

comment Does the term “Postal Authority” Make sense?
It's like "cheers" - defined as "good wishes on parting or ending a conversation", yet a lot of Americans would find its use odd. My question was - is it odd?

Thanks for this. While the definition is useful, some dictionary definitions are still odd in every day language. The issue I have is with the usage, not the definition of the word.

Thanks Peter, I suspected this has something to do with British/American usage. Could you please post your comment as an answer? I think it should be considered as such.

comment What is the difference between “brain” and “mind”?
My view of this would be that "Brain" stands for a physical organ, whereas "Mind" stands for thinking/experiencing/feeling ability.

I don't think sentences like "Where is my brain?" makes any sense while "Where is my mind?" does.

Perhaps as this is already the accepted answer, it is worth also discussing phrases like "My mind is in a different place" - where replacing mind with brain will make no sense at all.
