And technically, a cop can pull you over for going 1MPH over the speed limit, but they don't because they have some discretion in enforcing the law. There is always wiggle room. Now, if the limit were 100g and you were carrying 200g, for example, then they have a stronger case against you and they're more likely to get a conviction.

I am an anglophone from Texas, but I have a love of learning foreign languages, of which French is at the top of the list. On several occasions while visiting Montreal, I endeavored to speak French *only* and my experiences ranged from delight that I was speaking French so well to the other person answering me in English, which didn't exactly encourage me to continue in French. Perhaps the ones who answered me in English could hear my accent, or maybe they were anglophones themselves and thought it simpler to reply in English. Overall, I enjoyed my visits there and I'm looking forward to going again in the future.

Computer Science is merely the post-Turing decline in formal systems theory.
