I have lived in the north and the south - In the south they say everything is a Coke - In the north they say "pop" It's a regional thing. I never hear anyone say "soft drink" = )

    Which north? In New England (that's considered north, right?), it is usually either soda or soft drink... "soda" is conversational, "soft drink" - for the menus...

    Yes yes..exactly. I noticed the same thing. I think the word 'pop' is ridiculous, though. I can accept calling everything coke more than I can accept the word 'pop'. Oth, I live on the west coast again. They do it right here. Everything here is a 'soda' which makes more sense, imo.

[Lady_Aleena]: I don't know how hard it will be to get out of that mess.
[LanX]: M-x untabify
[choroba]: I don't think they're multiple people. I was told "he or she" sounds old-fashioned and "they" is the way to say it
[pryrt]: Those others were definitely offensive or unequivocably rude, I agree.
[choroba]: (well, it comes from the 14th century, so labelling it as "modern" doesn't seem appropriate)
[Your Mother]: "They" is becoming accepted but it irritates me sometimes. I tend to just pick she or he randomly or try to use "one."
LanX thinks it is appropriate here :)
[Your Mother]: They would think so.
[jdporter]: ok, I need a recipe for piping lines "through" an external program which is itself a filter
[jdporter]: without using a tmp file
