You are skirting the issue.
Nearly means almost. So to say there are almost as many gun shops as drug stores is a lie. Your tv station lied. They made it up. And now you are grasping at straws. It makes you look silly and desperate to prove a point. Is that an Australian thing?
I'm waiting for you to tell me how many gun shops vs how many drug stores there are. Even if you knew you wouldn't say, because you can't bear the thought of being wrong.
You're insecurity is laughable.
I want to be American. You do too. It's a shame because you will never be allowed. Maybe you could move to China, that is if they will accept you.
So you are wrong once again. Don't be so hard on yourself, it happens to pathetic people all the time.
Wise up.
That's a pretty aggresive responce Guppy,,, your normally so jolly.

If I don't respond to your post it is because you become pedantic even when a point is proven ie: the fruit cake with nuts in it, you failed to take it's meaning where I was saying you are insane. Note it's origins which are British, assuming you are one. Maybe this will clear it up, as you don't seem to want to take the womens cookbook bible as gospel.
Please take note what it says before you respond as it proves beyond doubt that fruit cakes can and do include nuts.....:)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit_cake
There is good reason to be pedantic, I understood your implication and handed it back to you. I know the origins of the recipe are British, I have allready said as much.
The point I have tried to get across to you and you are determined to fail to understand is this, your book is wrong, my book is wrong, they are all wrong. Now I did mention the law, you have had ample oppourtunity to make me look a fool by presenting a few case studies on the subject.
Unlike yourself or your pal Ade, I and many others find the definition of words and the context in which they are used of some importance. I have made a point here that you either deliberatley cannot see or just miss,we all suffer from the odd bout of human error even you Pet.the cake has nothing to do with anything and is unimportant. The subject (RIGHTS) is a different matter.

Your assumption that I am British is correct,,but then I have pointed this out on several occasions when called a Yank.

I suppose you are an experienced enough cook to bring out your own cookbook and put all those other naughty cooks back in their places I can't wait to see your version for a fruit cake? I am never wrong arachnid, as I proved with that wonderful CWA recipe for fruit cake with nuts and a encyclopedia that claimed fruit cakes are made using fruit and nuts etc....just thought I would mention that again as you have a hard time adjusting to the truth of it even to the point of saying they are all wrong, which is irrelevant as the original post asked me to produce a recipe with them in it and guess what, I did. Bummer for you.

With all respect due, old chap, you're talking pompous hogwash!

For a start it was I who had been striving to get you to acknowledge the importance of context. It was I who cautioned against failing to distinguish between occasions when pedantry is necessary and occasions when it inhibits insight. I even got trolled for saying it. Now at what you think is a safe distance of time you try to put words into my mouth retrospectively.

BTW, is it "possible" yet for you to re-enable your Private Message settings? Or are you still going to insist that there is never a place for commonsense discretion?
