Why is Coffee using the 'or' symbol wrong?

Why does Marcus think the "greater than" symbol = "or"?





(fyi; when the "greater than [>]" symbol is placed over the "equals [=]" symbol, one uses the phrase: "greater than OR equal to"...i assume that that is perhaps the cause of your confusion? Each symbol used alone does not require the use of the term "or".

When I want your opinion, I'll beat it out of you.

  • . Here is the story
    That inspired the tomato
    Worm haiku
    When my husband was young his mother
    Caught him thowing tomato worms
    At his sister so she let Heidi
    Off the chore and had him collect more worms in the bucket
    For what seemed to him several hours
    Then she threw all of them at him...
    For the life of me I could NEVER imagine my own mother doing that!!!
    Mo herself has some sort of problem with throwing to the extent that once when participating in a buddhist ritual she could not even throw the salt but rather just placed it in a little pile in front of where she sat
    is this unusual?

There, my blessing with thee.
And these few precepts in thy memory
See thou character. Give thy thoughts no tongue,
Nor any unproportion'd thought his act.
Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.
Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
Of each new-hatch'd, unfledged comrade. Beware
Of entrance to a quarrel; but being in,
Bear't that the opposed may beware of thee.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice;
Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy;
For the apparel oft proclaims the man,
And they in France of the best rank and station
Are of a most select and generous, chief in that.
Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Farewell. My blessing season this in thee!

And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.

Hamlet's Cook's Soliloquy

To soak, or not to soak: that is the question:
Whether 'tis browner in the pan to float on
The slips and slidings of a medium burner
or to fry hard amid a sea of butter,
to carmelize but yet stay soft in the middle,
all hot and crunchy-chewy; to fry, sautee,
no, more -- and by sauteeing say we end
the gooeyness and the thousand natural oozes
French toast is heir to, 'tis a consummation
devoutly to be wish'd. To fry, sautee,
sautee: perchance to burn: ay, there's the rub;
for in that heated pan what burns may come
when we have turned too high the electric coil
or gaseous flame that makes calamity;
For who would bear the sears and chars and scorches
before the late fork's prong’s turning prod,
the hesitating wrist, the spatula's delay,
who would fingers bare and say ow! ow!
and grunt and suck their heated digits
but that the hope of something left,
the undiscovered middle from which burned
black flakes are rasped, and looks all right,
and makes us rather eat these ones we have
than mix another batch and start again?
Thus laziness makes scrapers of us all;
And thus the naive view of excellence
is sicklied o'er with oh it's good enough,
and meals of great taste and fond enjoyment
with this regard their currents turn awry
and lose the name of breakfast.
