At a four way stop is it appropriate to wave another driver on even if you arrived at the stop first

Youdontknowjeff
Brendan21

To many times I come across what I'm sure are well intentioned people who wave for others to move through. I argue this is inappropriate and actually holds traffic up. The stop signs and traffic law exist so no one has to play traffic director in these situations. If one is needed often a police officer fills the roll. For some reason I find it extremely irritating when someone waves me on. It seems condescending, like they know best and will control the situation....

Should we give Cetaceans Rights?

One time, a few years ago, I was on a visit to Cancun, Mexico. One day, we visited a lagoon where they kept dolphins, however these dolphins were free to come and go from the ocean. The ocean around was filled with trash at the time, and the trainers decided that instead of cleaning the tank themselves, to make it faster, they would train the dolphins to pick the trash up. This in itself is amazing. The trainers would give the dolphins fish every time they brought a piece of trash to the stage....

The ellipsis should have 2 dots/periods/full-stops instead of 3.

BlindBeliever
Mysery

The ellipsis "..." is wasting a character and precious paper space as well as ink for no reason at all. Two dots/periods/full-stops mean nothing in particular so why are we wasting a symbol?It is okay, I understand, it will waste many resources to replace all the past instances of ellipses with two. So how about just from today onwards it is enforced?It literally wastes an extra bit of memory in a server every time it's typed. This is not actually a joke, imagine all...

When passing by someone in a hall or isle, should one do so turning one backside to them or crotch?

Youdontknowjeff
mostlogical

This is a question of etiquette. There are of course situations where one may not prefer to turn their backside. However I am keeping this to encounters between decent people with honest intentions. I say it is appropriate to turn ones backside to someone when passing by them in an isle or close hallway....
