comment Is a 'peeve' the same thing as a 'gripe'?
@WS2 It can include those actions, but doesn't necessarily so. Peeving can get heated, but is often simply grumbly.

comment Word request: Generalization of “spike” and “scuttle” and “slight”
Since it's military jargon, it's probably either based on the form that needs to be filled out (1206) or it's a call sign like Tango Uniform, or an acronym like dampeu.

comment Is the word “colic” a right word in this context?
Sometimes, you get a stitch in your side when you've been exercising vigorously. You'll know the sensation if you've had it. This is a good idiomatic expression.

comment What's the US slang term for “following someone in a car”?
The mad in mad-dogging is an intensifier, like mad money to mean lots of cash and mad love to mean a deep sense of connection. A cop dogging you isn't good; it means he's been following you for a little while. A cop mad-dogging you means that you believe the cop is no only tailing you, but intent on following you until you screw up so that he can bust you.
