What other type of commentary than personal is there from a private person Kroc? Official commentary from Kroc Industries?

Sorry for offtopic, I just don't like redundancy. Adding unnecessary words to anything makes it sound more important than it actually is. And that gets on my tits in a huge way. Nothing personal. :]

Yeah. "Female lesbian" and "adult woman" are both redundant. Though technically a woman could be a human female of any age, the default setting is already adult. It's only when you add "young" or "little" that non-adults come to mind.

Yet, strangely enough we say things like "ATM machine" and "PIN number" without thinking.

Hmm.
