comment Is it still a metaphor if you say “if X was Y” first?
I have edited this question because I had simile and metaphor the wrong way around when I asked it the first time.

revised Is it still a metaphor if you say “if X was Y” first?
got my similes and metaphors confused; definitely not a duplicate of "are similes a subset of metaphors?"

comment Comprehending complex sentence structure?
Does aldaily.com actually have any articles of its own? I always thought it simply linked to other online publications.

comment Acknowledge vs Noted
I agree. "Acknowledge" means "I have got your message" but it very much doesn't mean "I will do what you asked".

comment What is meant by “mercy your ears”?
Like I said, I can show you examples of the official lyrics of a song from the band's official website being completely wrong. Unless you get a chance to speak to the guy who wrote/sings the song yourself, you can't be sure what the words are. Do the band have an email address? A Facebook page or something like that? I would suggest all our efforts to make "mercy your ears" make sense are being wasted at this point.

comment Was James Joyce confused about “prone” and “supine” or am I?
I checked and the word "supine" appears only once in Ulysses: "What proofs did Bloom adduce to prove that his tendency was towards applied, rather than towards pure, science? Certain possible inventions of which he had cogitated when reclining in a state of supine repletion to aid digestion" so, not sure whether that helps. The other uses of "prone" are in the sense of "having a tendency", not physical position.
