comment How accepted is ‘f***ing’ in informal conversation?
Wow, didn't know gender increased... and you're wrong, your personal bias is showing, strongly. Google "fry on swearing" about swearing and level of education.

I quote @rheto: deleterious effects of second-hand smoke on non-smokers I took it to be a reference to health issues. Which is a valid reason for restricting smoking rights.

Wow, I've a lot of weird shit about cussing, but to compare it to smoking... smoking can and will kill you (and others). Cussing kills?

comment Should it be “100% donations policy” or “100% donation policy”?
I think you're reading too much into this. ;-)

comment “My friends and I” vs. “My friends and me” vs. “Me and my friends”
"generations of schoolmarms" can't win against the natural evolution of language. That which flows better wins (of course, flow most often depends on what one hears more often, which sounds/feels more familiar)

comment Election or Elections?
-1 because you're didn't really grasp the complete picture. I'd use "he's won the elections" for the POTUS. Because... it's a number of independent elections which culminate in chosing the President. Or any other form where there are multiple mostly independent elections (different electoral board and such) but the end result is, as you say, one position. Most parliamentary elections are, yes, elections. Even though they combine to "elect" the prime minister (or chancellor or whatever the head honcho's title is)

comment A better alternative for the word 'urine'
"number one" is most common? Any sources for that (apart from Google which is clearly useless here)? Never heard of it. Oh, I see it's used in schools a lot. US schools, I surmise. So... wouldn't know it. Do adults use it?
