comment What do you call a disk drive that is not solid state?
I'm still surprised. I could see how a solid-state drive needn't have a disk, but it is just as, if not more, deserving of the term hard as its moving-parts cousin. Do you have a reference?

comment What do you call a disk drive that is not solid state?
Are you suggesting that a hard disk drive is never solid-state? I'm surprised. Is it the word drive that makes it not solid-state?

comment term for “finding correct solution by excluding wrong solutions”
By the way, the style of game where the winner is chosen by eliminating all the other players is called "last man standing". Thought you might find that a useful, related phrase.

comment What do you call second-party quotes within a quote?

comment A word for the feeling of falling

comment Can one answer “Have you got…?” with “Yes, I've got.”?
There are lots of grammatically and colloquially valid responses, but I'd guess the most likely response is a mumble along the lines of "sure" followed by some rummaging through a bag.

comment Polite synonyms for “a——hole-ish” behavior
God forgive me, but now I'm curious what blashphemy would convey the meaning of asshole-ish behavior.
