comment What is a “biological-only” father called?
How does this make sense? "By the time I reached the age of 25 I was able to contact my normal"?

"rapist" seems to satisfy the conditions in the situation although it won't apply to all such situations.

comment What do you call all the pieces of a song minus the lyrics
"Instrumental" is used to refer to a song that never had lyrics. The question is different.

comment Is it conceivable that President Obama might use the word “queue”?
It's funny you would quote Cambridge to justify American English usage. Why not use Collins or an actual American dictionary?

comment Is there a term for a free ride without consent?
Seems good for most of OPs examples except, "... I want to sit in on someone else's meeting and just observe."

Precisely. This is exactly what I am talking about. So is there a word for it?

These suggestions have vastly different connotations than terraforming.

comment Why there are two different meanings for “triweekly”?
Similarly, the word "third" is ambiguous. Would I mean every third occurance or three times per occurance (ie. one third, two thirds, three thirds)?

comment Is possessive's apostrophe dispensable in any case?
Apart from "it" and other pronouns can you find another exception? I think not.

comment Is there a short phrase to describe forgetting to do something because something else had your attention?
I can think of situations where you might be sidetracked and yet all the time be thinking, "I must get to my ship," but you can't because you are busy doing something else, so I don't feel this necessarily has the implication of forgetfulness with it (even though Collins uses that word). This has more to do with priorities.

comment What does “triple down” in “Trump triples down on George W. Bush’s responsibility for 9/11”mean?
I think it's safe to say that the author intended 'triple down' to be a superlative of 'double down'.
