    Shouldn't that be: "Tinactin cures and prevents most cases of athlete's foot?

    I don't think it is possible to "pluralize" athlete's foot, really.

      That is one interpretation. Using that interpretation, you'd use the "mass" form of the plural, "athlete's foot". However, I interpret that as "most types of" which requires the other plural form, "athlete's foots", but you have to forgive the manufacturor for not putting that on the tube because they'd get too many letters from people who aren't used to advanced English.

      Then why doesn't it cure the smell of the athletes' feet in the gym locker-rooms?

[moritz]: choroba in python I use jsonschema
[moritz]: I'm sure there's a Perl implementation of it too
[choroba]: it seems Kelp and similar help you a lot with dispatching, but how to do something similar with contents?
[moritz]: like JSON::Schema
[Corion]: ambrus++ # more bugs than lines
[Corion]: That's like "works on my machine" ;-)
[choroba]: I mean, I'd like to say "this path should run this sub, but first it should check the user is authenticated, has the following permissions, and the contents is valid against a given schema
[ambrus]: no, that means I haven't even tried to run it, might not even parse
[ambrus]: so it doesn't work on my machine
[choroba]: i.e. I know JSON::Schema, I'm just curious whether there's a ready solution to plug it into a web service
