comment Can we contract “well have” to “well've”?
I'll've commented on this post. I'd've posted an answer, but I'dn't have gotten any votes because to many contractions make what I'm saying nearly indecipherable.

I'm tempted to suggest "Racing Zeno" or "Chasing Zeno" depending on the exact context.

comment What does “medical scare” mean?
If the ailment is personal or embarrassing saying that it was a medical scare or health scare instead of going into specific details about what was wrong can also give enough information so we know approximately what happened without violating the person's privacy.

comment An old car in bad condition
Sadly my original source is usage. That the dictionary also lists it in their example but beyond that, I'm not having much luck finding it using google's ngram viewer... trying to come up with a short phrase that also maintains context is hard.

comment What is the sound of teeth hitting each other in cold weather called?
Google Ngram viewer suggests it's rare relative to Chattering but does get used. I must have read a lot of books from the 1890s. (;

comment A word for a “non-logged in” user
Google Docs does this ... except instead of user it's <random animal> ... So you might have Anonymous Alpaca, Anonymous Bat, ... Anonymous Koala etc. If you're logged in it shows your name instead.
