a thing to keep in mind, I daresay

as cap'n ron points out elsewhere, the venue of speech matters a lot -
if I'm having a legal discussion with Shawn, we'd both better use
legally correct terminology. but if I'm having a friendly chat with
cap'n ron about helping him move, then he'll understand why I'm carrying
the intellectual property while he carries the real property . . .
