If 'con' is the opposite of 'pro,' then what is the opposite of progress?[edit]

While funny, and surely Wright may have used it, this joke surely precedes him by decades, if not centuries. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:02, 19 November 2010 (UTC)


It looks like this might be one of those things that started as a joke but ended up as accepted. See wiktionary. Four refs, but they're all print so I can't check 'em. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 00:59, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

It's fact-tagged on WP's list of collective nouns and the major dictionaries have nothing. The Google search is almost entirely half-arsed blog posts. Scarlet A.pngpostate 01:15, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

Merge with "House of Representatives"?[edit]

I'd rather just keep this page and get rid of "HoR". We can cover the House and Senate on one page and just link to political figures and particularly shitty legislation from here. TheLateGatsby (talk) 01:29, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
