Attorney generals are not general attorneys, or they would be called general attorneys, not attorney generals. In English, the adjective comes before the noun. General is not an adjective in this case.

There\\\'s a reason why people have to be taught to say and have trouble saying \\\"attorneys general.\\\" It\\\'s wrong.

Actually, burritos supreme wouldn\\\'t be that far off. In Spanish(and most related languages), the grammar in that context would be noun, then adjective(casa blanca - house white), vs adjective then noun(I live in a white house) used in English.

@Doug in Alaska: Yes, I will take 2 SUPREME BURRITOS!!! And a large soda.

@Ms. Info: Are you guys done with all of the photo shoots?

The classic English comedy (book) Three Men in a Boat: (To Say Nothing of the Dog) was written by Jerome K. Jerome. Just sayin.

If it\\\'s \\\"attorneys general\\\" then is it also \\\"iPods Touch\\\" instead of iPod Touches?

For the record, the day the cast released, John VanOphem @JHVanOphem] said to me on twitter: \\\"157 is missing the number in the intro.\\\"

I second the Chicago excitedness. Of course, Springfield would be even more exciting.

Well, actually, Springfield isn\'t all that exciting, and I\'m sure far more fans are in Chicago and it wouldn\'t pay to come down here, but I would be excited.

Well, I mean I guess the Lincoln museum IS pretty snazzy and we do have some other surprisingly neat touristy stuff but we still can\'t hold a candle to Chicago I mean come on how many world class museums do they have and I\'ll shut up now.

Is there a term for people who have two first names, would there be one for those with the same first name and last name, like Andrew Anderson or Pat Fitzpatrick?

Geo: When you started talking about an available ticket for Chicago, I started getting excited, thinking that you might be coming here at some time in the near future.

From Wikipedia: With sunlight not available directly as a form of energy, the tubeworms rely on bacteria in their habitat to oxidize hydrogen sulfide, using dissolved oxygen in the water for respiration.

Bacteria are so fucking awesome.
