Difference between a ship and a boat? A boat will fit on a ship but a ship won't fit on a boat. Then you have to ask yourself why are submarines called boats rather than ships?

What happens if you ship a boat that's loaded with other stuff? Is the cargo a shipment now because its being towed by a truck or is it just a shipment of cargo?

"Definition: Half and Half is a dairy product consisting of half light cream and half milk.

Half and half has a fat content of between 10.5 percent and 12 percent. This compares with light cream, which contains anywhere from 16 percent to 29 percent butterfat, and whole milk, which has about 3.5 percent butterfat."
Same idea as "Diet Cheesecake" or "Sugar-free Maple Syrup". Culinary oxymorons!

Any volunteers to come drag my garbage and recycling to the curb? It's cold out and I don't want to. I didn't take it to the curb last week so it has to go this week? Anyone? Anyone?

Get. Out. My grandma insists on getting her own mail every day. It takes her five minutes to do it, and she says it keeps her alive. Maybe you'll run into someone looking for a talented worker...
