comment “With naked eyes” vs. “With the naked eyes”
I'd distinguish between ungrammatical and unidiomatic: "with naked eye" - ungrammatical, "with naked eyes" - grammatical but unidiomatic, "with the naked eye" - grammatical and idiomatic, "with the naked eyes" grammatical if you're talking about specific naked eyes but unidiomatic.

comment What's a modern equivalent of “fie on thee”?
@Oldcat It depends on the group of people, I suppose. Even "fuck you" isn't all that strong in some groups, but it's certainly more taboo than "fie on thee".
