I like programming, astronomy, history, language, and music.

Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest unto your soul. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

comment Which is correct: “standing on line” or “standing in line”?
It isn't used in the mid-atlantic states that I know of. It sounds New Englandish.

comment When should I use “in” or “on”?
I live in Southeastern PA (Amish country), and we say "in line". That might be a southern thing, though it is not proper english.

For the record, which country are you from?

comment How do I ask a question politely?
Technically, it is incorrect to say can because even if you are told not to do something, you still are able to. Just to use an easy example, if a child is told not to jump (on the bed ;), he still CAN jump, but he MAY NOT.

comment Can a word be contracted twice (e.g. “I'ven't”)?
@nohat, I've never heard that before! I've is a common contraction (more often a common "leave out". "I got to go" instead of "I've got to go")

@David, that is also what makes it one of the hardest languages to learn. At least it isn't tonal!
