comment I have a question regarding the proper usage of I and me
Wait, what? So @JohnLawler, after getting 55k+ reputation on English SE you're telling us that there are no correct grammatical answers? It's all grammar anarchy?

I, for one, would like to know the movie this quote is taken from. You ought to tell us what it is cough.

comment What does the phrase “Terminated Indefinitely” mean?
@FumbleFingers "permanently" and "indefinitely" are two different things. Terminated permanently reiterates that the project is really dead, never to return. Terminated indefinitely means that the project may be resurrected, but the date which it might happen is ... indefinite... in this case meaning after "an unspecified period of time".

comment What does the phrase “Terminated Indefinitely” mean?
@Jim, that is the meaning I assumed as well: that a project has been halted and has no planned restart date. However, we are all just speculating until javaPlease42 gives us some context.

comment “completely” usage confusion
"Completely" is a red herring here. The question would be the same if the word "completely" were removed.

Assuming a fever is any temperature > 98.6, why can't 98.7 be a "low fever" and 103.9 be a "high fever"?

comment Word to describe ideology of unfettered belief in rational self-interest
Machiavellianism comes close, but doesn't seem to include the group-interest part. Coopetition is a neologism that also attempts to describe this. In economics, it is most commonly known as rational actors or rational choice theory.

comment Which is correct, me and Larry or Larry and I?
The pro-tip for figuring out which is to remove the other person. Which sounds right: "worked up between me" or "worked up between I"?
