What alternatives do folks use for food delivery from restaurants that don't run their own deliveries?... for example Suan La Chow Show from MIT'ers celebrated Mary Chung Restaurant https://www.yelp.com/menu/mary-chung-restaurant-cambridge/item/suan-la-c...

Not sure this is the greatest context to start asking about who you can get your food delivery from...

This is something that taxis do. IDK if Uber or
lyft will do it.

technically, katana blades are not swords since they are only sharpened on one edge. alternatively, they use tantos as daggers.

By that definition, a sabre or scimitar would not be a sword as they're also only sharpened on one edge, which seems wrong. And what does that make something like a rapier that might be only sharpened at the point?

maybe katanas dont have hilts and thus are considered to be long blades ?

...that someone attempting to speak authoritatively on what is and isn't a sword would be able to spell "samurai" correctly.

"samurai sword" is a nonsense term anyway. Chances are this was a junk fake katana.

You'd think that someone attempting to speak authoritatively on what is and isn't a sword would be able to spell "samurai" correctly.

His spelling was not the conventional one in English, but when transliterating from another language with a completely different writing system, there's actually no such thing as "correct" spelling. It's just whatever you think works best phonetically.

For example, Chanukah vs. Hannukka etc... neither is "correct" or "wrong."

Google Translate tells me that the correct spelling is 武士 , and they transliterate it "Bushi" (obvously related to bushido, the warrior's code), and pronounce it... like none of the above.
