Funny how a different angle can make them look like a whole different person.

I always thought that it was more of a temporal wrap thingy ... like the closing time at a bar.

There is no temporal wrap to closing time at a bar. When it's closing time, you get. out.

I have owned several '57 Fords - Two Custom 300's and a Ranchero. Also, a Ford F-100 pick-up truck and an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme wagon.



The Custom 300's and the Ranchero were all factory RHD, manufactured in Canada for export to South Africa, so shipped in knock-down form with final assembly in Ford factory, Port Elizabeth, South Africa, to circumvent the complete vehicle importation rules. Interestingly, you see a fair number of both LHD and RHD USA cars in South Africa of 1947-1948 model years and 1958 model years - more than other years. This is because the government temporarily relaxed the importation rules because they needed new VIP cars for government use. Many ordinary people bought cars in the same years that were not subjected to the usual restrictions.

The F-100 was RHD, made in Port Elizabeth, from a mix of local and imported parts. The Oldsmobile was LHD, and remained that way.
A Ford Man, mostly!

The motoring parts books and workshop manuals seem to prefer wheel cover for the thing that covers most of the wheel, while hub cap seems to be only the very small cap that, quite literally, covers the hub and hub nut.
Oh!

I had forgotten about that little cap over the nut and cotter key holding the hub on the spindle!

For shame! After spending the majority of my days working on automobiles, trucks and heavy equipment I should have know better!

Stuff is a wonderful English word, with quite old origins. Stuff was considered a formal word in 1611, used in KJV (sorry religious reference), to mean both things and material. The only other English word with this meaning is the poncy French origin word "materiel".


Every other word in English refers to either things or to materials, but not both in one word. The tyranny of the division between count and mass nouns!
There is another word, usually considered vulgar and offensive. The origin is unclear, although some may say it is English, and it is generally considered and English language word. But the actual origin of the word is unclear, the first occurrences at about the mid 1400's.

It is a very versatile word, and can be used in the position of a noun, a verb, an adjective or an adverb. There are many common phrases that employ the word, as well as compounds incorporating it.

But to keep on the good side of our Great And Omnipotent Moderator, I shall refrain from actually typing it here.

I am positive that we all know the word I am discussing.

And with that, I shall say, "Enough of that STUFF!"

Yes, we do, but technically it's not a word, it's an acronym. Sure happy it's Thursday.

That word is only one syllable, easy to say, and well known - all evidences of being English, as in Anglo Saxon in origin.


I have even heard it used in a sermon in a moderately conservative church. The preacher was referring to matter passed.


But not all single syllable, easy to say, well known words have Anglo Saxon origin. "Tea" came from Hokkien dialect, and one of the English accents actually captures the original quite well for two to three centuries of Anglicization. Dates from the tea trade days, when tea only came from China. Then the English shipped the plant to India. BTW: best tea should be certified as being grown about 1260 metres elevation. Then it qualifies for 'high mountain' moniker.
