comment Are these double negatives? “No it is not. No I don't think so.”
Probably apocryphal-- every time somebody tells a version of this story, the actual words they quote (be it "Yeah, sure" or whatever) seem to be different. And in any case, this wouldn't be a "double negative" in the syntactic sense so it's a slightly pointless anecdote whether true or not...!

comment Is the word “formulæ” valid English?
@tchrist What you say is essentially true from the RAE's perspective. I'd just remind readers that the RAE isn't in possession of a magic button that it can press to instantly change the collation standard adopted by every single Spanish speaker and sort implementation on the planet. The reality is that you will find a variety of opinions on whether ch and ll are considered separate letters and where they are placed in the alphabet (if only because there are a variety of routines installed on the world's computers-- I dare say few people actually care).

comment When to use “myself” or “me”
It's maybe worth mentioning that "myself" is sometimes used for contrast or emphasis. So you may find e.g. "Please register myself but not Jim" being used by some speakers.

comment adjective-born or noun-born?
Both constructions exist. I have to say that "France-born" sounds a bit odd to my ears for some reason, but e.g. "England-born" or "English-born" sound fine (as do "Texan-born" and "Texas-born").
