Does it? Isn't knowing the names of arc-studying scientists semantics?

It is unfortunate, but this entire thread may very well be the result of Brian not getting his noodle wet.

Then there is this kind of bus bar.


The "buss bar" problem stems of course from Bussman fuses, often called just "Buss" fuses.

What I like is when someone types in an email that they want replacement "bus fuses" and they mean the brand, but I like to respond by asking why they want fuses on their bus bar.

Another one for me:
"Physical year" instead of "fiscal year". I had a boss that did that constantly.
