comment Word describing “Nothing Changed”
@WillHunting "no change" would be the same issue. When printing clinical letters for the practices, the verbiage is usually stated "and no changes occurred in the swelling in the ankle", but for the selected drawing tool, calling it "no change" or "nothing changed" just looks like an odd tool name.

I like your explanation. I've never liked semicolons — em dashes felt more natural with the flow of words to me.

comment “A Smith & Wesson beats a straight flush”
@EricNaslund But to be fair, the original question had "Is it the idea of getting away via unlawful means when loosing?" in it, which seemed like the OP was trying to understand the literal meaning. The edited version changes that somewhat (in my opinion).

comment What do you call a man who knows well how to fix his household appliances?
@Jay Not necessarily. From that same article, "The term handyman increasingly describes a paid worker, but it also includes non-paid homeowners or do-it-yourselfers."
