comment "As" considered harmful
@Kris "I'm interested to know whether this is an officially-supported view." The downvotes are showing you "No, it's not". :)

comment "Order on behalf of"
@Sid In that situation, Jack would simply be the "doctor" or "provider". Kim, on the other hand, may be a "proxy" or "agent" or simply "nurse". This type of relationship tends to use professional titles rather than descriptive ones.

comment Meaning of "nine-to-five kind of person"?
I think the key is living a structured life and having an expected schedule. I can very easily see a nine-to-five person working nights or putting in a consistent 50 hour work week. The structure seems to be the key.

comment Meaning of "nine-to-five kind of person"?
@JoeBlow I completely agree. Although not just conservative, but structured. Some people thrive on routine. These are nine-to-five type of people.

comment what is the meaning of "bag the job"
I thought this was originally "It's in the bag" meaning that the object (person/place/thing) was already acquired. From there, it was changed into the verb "to bag", meaning you're getting it into the bag or acquiring it. Pure speculation, though.

comment Where does the concept of a "God-shaped hole" originate?
THat quote was the one I first posted. Apparently the community doesn't like misquotes.

comment bcp: Error = [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]String data, right truncation
I don't really understand your analysis. However, +1 for the line feed mention. For my case, we had line feed characters in the data, which BCP really does not like.

revised The Bible seems to allow polygamy. Why doesn't the church?
Added another great quote from that paper

comment Did Abraham, David and Solomon think having many wives was sin?
Your source: "Greek and Roman men were not allowed to be married to more than one wife at a time" substantiates the claim that Greco-Roman society influenced Christianity, not the other way around. Also: "Greco-Roman SIUM was preserved and gradually reinforced by the Christian church..." Also: "The true historical significance of Greco-Roman SIUM may well lie in its impact on the Christian tradition." Also: "[polygamy] betrays modern sensibilities and does not appear to be directly derived from earliest Christian doctrine". Thanks for the great source supporting my claims!

comment Did Abraham, David and Solomon think having many wives was sin?
@RBarryYoung I'd love to see some source backing that claim. Of course, Josephus said: "...for it is the ancient practice among us to have many wives at the same time." source. That was in reference to King Herod, who lived during Jesus's time. That seems to go directly against what you are saying.

comment Did Abraham, David and Solomon think having many wives was sin?
@user2956947 So... you believe that it's impossible to love more than one person at a time? Do you love both your mother and your father? Is it not possible to love both of them plus grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. Yes, the love for each is different. But that does not mean it is diminished.

@eliyah thanks. Even though it's solid and biblical, it's not exactly a popular belief.
