Re: Unpopular opinions you genuinely hold

None of that changes anything. Whatever margin you decide is allowable becomes the limit. You can't get rid of extremely marginal decisions. What do you mean it makes no difference? You can just say every extra centimetre doesn't make a difference until there's no offside possible. Sure, I'm just i...

Re: Unpopular opinions you genuinely hold

It's like having a margin of error for the speed limit. It makes no difference. The speed limit just becomes 73.987mph or whatever. 73.988 and it's 3 points on your licence. There's always going to be a cut-off point. It's not quite the same thing. Your speed is something you can easily monitor you...

Re: Words and expressions that grind your gears

There's certain computer files I keep for work where month first is best. There may be specific circumstances where it makes sense, but generally speaking it's just an awful way of writing it.

Re: Words and expressions that grind your gears

People putting the month first in dates. Doesn't really make sense, either do ascending levels (day-month-year) or even descending if you want to be rogue (year-month-day, though this looks horrible so don't do that), but the month is always logically in the middle.
