My latent OCD is compelling me to point out that Wolverine's skeleton was merely coated with adamantium, not made out of it. I still knew what you meant, though. OK, now I can sleep tonight. :)

Dude. Not everyone has the same amount of OCD. Some people might say CDO, but not me. I have serious OCD and I don't have that issue. Different people have different OCD on different things. Also, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder sounds better than Compulsive Disorder Obsessive.

This. Also, maybe "Canaries" as a type in. And... I tried "clean my bathroom sink and make me a sandwich" for what a teetotaler doesn't do, since I had no idea what that was but was sure one had never cleaned my bathroom. I feel that should be accepted.

My own OCD (or CDO, if you prefer) compels me to point out that "Kinder" means "children", not "child". "Children's garden" was accepted, but I'm just saying.

Because nothing makes sense any more, it turns out Hello Kitty isn't a cat. http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/miranda/la-et-cam-hello-kitty-in-los-angeles-not-a-cat-20140826-column.html#page=1

could coal be accepted for carbon ?
+1

May 8, 2018
No, because coal is not an element; it's just something else that is made of carbon. Saying diamonds are made of coal would be like saying that beef hot dogs are made of hamburgers.
