comment What do you call someone who dresses strangely or extravagantly?
@TusharRaj Agreed. The pictures being used do not really do the idea of being overdressed justice.

comment Is a hamburger considered a sandwich?
@hippietrail All the same, I think this discussion has gotten out of hand, and will probably be cleaned up shortly (and rightly so), and since I don't use the chat room personally, I'd like to apologize for my abrasive behavior. Your initial comment rubbed me the wrong way, since I thought that it was referring to the quality of the picture only, but I can see it's much more complicated than that. I still hold that a burger patty can be served between two slices of bread, but apparently, a rissole can too, and it is something very similar to a burger patty.

@hippietrail It's incidental to the issue anyway - this is actually a good point you bring up in that I didn't know rissole were a thing, but from what I've been able to find, the difference is not in whether they are served on sliced of bread or a roll, but the makeup of the patty itself. The picture itself, however, is from a recipe for a hamburger on two slices of bread. It's a "serious eats" recipe from their burgers and fries section, though I can't attest to whether or not their classification is correct or not. It was hard enough to find a good picture of a beef patty on bread slices.

@hippietrail And now you're just being insulting. But I can see how you might interpret that differently, on account of coming from another culture where long-winded rants like that are commonplace, and no attempt is made to justify a blasé statement like 'no I see something different in that picture'. I accept that there's another name for a cake of beef between two slices of bread, which by the way is usually in the form of a croquette and not a plain beef patty en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rissole But if you wanted to say that, you could've tried actually saying it instead.

I prefer Minsc's version. "Squeaky wheel gets the kick!"

comment What's the English for the Russian saying “Love sometimes plays tricks - you may fall in love with a goat”?
It doesn't carry the exact same nuance, but it's about as close as anything else could get.

Also, if you tell your friend that you want 'a sandwich' for lunch and doesn't bring you what you want, it's your own fault for not saying what kind, out of hundreds of options from all around the world.

Would a Yakisoba roll be considered a sandwich? I think that's more unusual than just a hotdog. I would still say 'yes' though. Just because the pieces are still connected (as many hamburger buns are) doesn't mean it ceases to be a sandwich.

A BLT, a Chicken Salad, a Corned Beef, and even a Grilled Cheese can all be served on a bun. But they would still be a sandwich. Just as a hamburger can be served between two slices of bread, and would be a more 'recognizable' sandwich.

comment Is there a word or an idiom for people who only spend their families' money and fool around?
The old British slang of a "dandy" comes to mind - referring to the problematic youths of England using inherited money for wasteful and dangerous activities in the English countryside. It's the basis for the Mr. Toad character from "The Wind in the Willows" and the Disney short film "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride".
