comment International Time Notation
I have rarely seen this, so I suggest you stay away from it. Stick with the standard 10:30 am at least for English-language web sites.

comment Why do they say “love fifteen,” in tennis?
Sounds like you are trying to explain a simple coincidence in spelling. The sounds came before the spelling, and there is no sound like English "h" in "loch." Regardless, this is not a discussion board and not an appropriate place to mount a discussion of your theory.

comment Where does this usage “and you” as in titles come from?
This is very doubtable. Science and You, 1939 or so, Chemistry and You, around the same time.

comment Meaning of “Feds” in Canadian English?
It refers to the central government, but I don't have a source for any of this. The term includes the bureaucracy as well as the elected representatives.
