comment What does “You hit singles, you hit doubles,” mean?
@Phil Yes. And even without the rest of the quotation, it must be a baseball reference. It doesn't make sense in any other context.

That's funny. When I was taught this in school (in the US), I remember being told it was a French convention.

comment Is there a word for this emotion? Resentment over someone's good fortune without wanting it - Not quite jealousy/envy
Additionally, Dictionary.com specifically offers "to envy or resent the pleasure or good fortune of (someone)". Sounds rather spot on.

comment “Her whole family IS/ARE biologists”?
@F.E. It wasn't a complaint. I thought you made a good point, but you need to make your point in the right place, which is Meta.

comment “Her whole family IS/ARE biologists”?
@F.E. That wasn't an appropriate edit. If you disagree with closure, you should make your argument on Meta. It will get better publicity there and is more likely to get the question re-opened.
