Linguo Dead?!

I drove past a quarry today with a sign that read "STONE YARD."

I'd like to believe this is just a business name, that the majority of Americans know what a quarry is. But part of me is frightened that's not true.

A quarry, of course, is a fancy-pants term for a question.

I once used Structured Quarry Language (SQL) to describe a limestone wall.

I'd make some joke here about a firewall, but it's Friday and I don't feel like thinking that hard.
