His dictionary dates back a little. Weird used to mean "different".
Why, a new complex word. Thanks. I shall find uses for it :p
Very interesting, thanks for the documentation.
I must be missing something. Did Apple refuse to serve some people? Maybe you're mistaking Apple for a bakery? http://www.theguardian.com/society/2015/may/19/northern-ireland-ashers-baking-company-guilty-discrimination-gay-marriage-cake  (Now might be a good time to make a snide remark about Apple, Ireland, and taxes, though) This world suffers from homophobia. Homophobia kills. Apple, as a company that takes its social responsibilities seriously, decided to feature gay...
Do I understand right that this company chose the name iWatch IN ORDER TO COMPETE with the upcoming Watch, and now sues Apple for being the competition, pretty much?
I understand the part about the feeling. As a person born in Brittany, I feel a Breton first, a French second. However, were Brittany to secede, to the utmost glee of the secessionists (I wonder... are there secessionists in every damn place?), the Bretons would have the choice between leaving as French or staying as Bretons (or maybe staying as French...).

If Alabama was to "leave the US", Alabamans could just move to Detroit and stay American. I don't foresee France, the NL, or Germany offering this kind of move freedom to...
Well, my opinion on Europe, is that as long as we have country citizenships, we can't compete with the USA. An Alabaman is not subject to Alabama's horrible management (sorry, Alabama, I just like the sound of the name) of their budget. He can just sell his house or leave it rot and move to California to enjoy the earthquakes. It's the same country. A strong Europe is one where the Greeks could just decide to scamper off to Germany, en masse. Everyone would have incentives...
 How the ... did I do these lines? Looks cool :)
This one is awesome. Some days, being an journalist is fun. Also, thanks for the links.
