comment When should “no problem” replace “you're welcome” as a response to “thank you”?
@Julian It's not that "You're welcome" is unfriendly, it's that it's not actively friendly. It's formal. Think of it in the sense other languages have for addressing the second person, e.g., French "vous" versus "tu". And I think you're reading quite a lot into "no problem", especially without context.

there is no reason to use alternate equivalent wording, if you don't like my voice that's too bad

comment The difference between “take” and “last”
"It takes 3 million years for a supernova to end." (Probably not accurate.) I don't think the distinction you've made exists.

revised How did the Swedish word “fartlek” make it to the English language running vocabulary?
That should have been a comment, the edit should not have been approved.

comment Don't look a gift-horse in the mouth
I should have said previously -- thanks for clarifying, Sam. I've left the post as-is because old teeth = bad teeth, otherwise it wouldn't be a useful metric. The exact details are available in other answers :)
