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 What is the opposite of “Overridden“
I wouldn't use the "unless" example, as that could also mean the store overrides the decision to include it.

comment Dedicated “To women” or “To the women”?
Wait, this answer doesn't make sense. Are you sure your opposing sentences aren't switched around?

FYI, the 3rd commandment is "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain".

comment Can you also say “Take you care” or “Take you care, too”?
And when you say "[you] take care" it is assumed that you mean of themself.

More normally, and sounding like something a little child would say to set everyone roaring [with laughter], it would be "Company, you halt"!

comment Which is correct: “standing on line” or “standing in line”?
He says you can't pin down why you would use one or the other. If I'm standing in line, I'm standing in the line I am in. On the other hand, even if there is a line on the floor, that is not the line being referred to, but rather the line of people. Therefore you are in the line, and definately are not standing on [top of] the line of people.

Oops, didn't read the question body, only the title. And I can't delete comments on the mobile version. Oh well, perhaps everyone can try to not ask the entire in the title :)

In this case the context is not given, so a generalization is perfectly find, and so is guessing at the specifics, since there are clues in the sentance.
