maybe it wasn't as common as it thought it was? 


Summarizing, then, we assume that relational information is not subject to a corpus of utterance tokens upon which conformity has been defined by the paired utterance test.

It didn’t like being called “common” and changed its name to something else?

Sad, very sad.

It, seriously, is the world's most problematic issue. Yet, the vast majority of people ignore it.

Veering straight from this question, i've always been involved with numbers.    They're really very simple, but people make much of them.    In my many incarnations, I've always asked people, like their math teachers, to check their numbers.   But not in a 2+5 way but rather to look at the mass of numbers they are crunching and see if the answer makes common sense.    

 

In our present context, don't look to see if the bill tallies correctly but if you've been charged for a course or bottle of wine you didn't consume.    


It's not my circus,

not my monkeys.
