对不起, I think you might mean "things which have been found" and "things which belong to you"

comment The history of the use of “man”
@Brian Hooper @nohat @FumbleFingers @Third Idiot. This needed editing NOT closing. It is actually a reasonable question. Some people are too quick to downvote / close threads, it seems arrogant.

comment Just how offensive are the terms “retarded” and “gay”?
@eje211 I seriously disagree that not being offended implies approval. Personally I am extraordinarily difficult to offend, because I don't think feeling offended is a healthy emotion and I have taught myself to not to engage in it. Just because I don't let other peoples attempts to offend offensive, does not imply that I approve of that attempt, it simply means they were unsuccessful. You make it sound like a person has a responsibility to take offense at anything they would not encourage.

comment Pronunciation of the word Leicester
@Third Australian pronunciations of English names can be so terrible sometimes. E.g. the footballer Chris Mainwaring which they pronounce main-wearing :/

comment Use of 'The' in names containing 'Of'
It always irks me when people say "Buddha" instead of "The Buddha"
