Logistics also has other meanings. For example, what does a logistics company do?

I wanna know if you're actually concerned about grammar and spelling at all?

comment Why is “any ancient civilization” supposedly wrong in this sentence?
That may be an error of logic, but it is not an error of grammar.

comment Is there a word for “not greedy”?
One could be frugal with their money, BECAUSE they are greedy. They don't seem exclusive to me.

comment Is there a word for “not greedy”?
Being content sounds neutral to me, is that an antonym? What if the person likes to see others receive before himself?

comment What's a common phrase that means “To put it simply though not 100% correctly”?
This might be really common among Math professors and Physicists which are what, about 0.00001% of the population? That's not very common at all.

comment The difference between “I used to” and “I'm used to”
I'm used to doing it means I'm used to doing it? That was a circular explanation.

comment Is “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet” a common or respectable English expression?
Try googling "double negative as an intensifier". Despite what your English teachers wanted you to believe its use is very common colloquially.

Also B.T.O. had a hit in the 70's with that exact title.

comment Nouns and pronouns
Even when referring to the singular country one could use the plural pronoun since a country is made up of a collection of individuals or a collection of leaders. Either singular or plural could be used. Just be consistent.

comment Is there a word or phrase for the time taken to become productive?
Is the word prepare appropriate? "The meeting was scheduled for 10am, but it took some people 5 minutes to prepare."

comment Is “originally first” a grammar error?
But then somebody realized that it was actually first invented many centuries prior to that? There is nothing grammatically incorrect about it and one could also argue that isn't redundant as well. Being redundant does not make a sentence ungrammatical. In poor style perhaps.
