There ain't no rest for the wicked, and I never plan on shutting my eyes for good.

comment Can you say “within 90 days after”?
@aediaλ I never claimed that there was a grammatical error. I claimed that there is a usage error. On the topic of redundancy, Elements of Style states "a sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts." I use this as a basis for my first claim. When I speak of logic, I speak of logic from the standpoint of mathematical or temporal logic. A statement may be grammatically sound, however that does not make the statement correct.

@StJohnoftheCross I actually can't use hamfisted here, I have used it previously in the paper. I feel that using it again would detract from the paper.

Certainly... I am writing a major term paper on war. I am currently just creating a mindmap (I use them in the same way as an outline, because I tend to overthink outlines). My thought is that "war is never well thought out," or perhaps "war is not very well thought out." (Actually, the latter of those should be removed, it sounds rather daft.)

comment “What time?” instead of “What day?”
I live in "the South" (not that that necessarily means anything). I have heard that before, however I do agree that it is unusual. I completely understand your confusion, as it would make far more sense for the asker to be more specific.
