    Not sure what ODS is supposed to stand for in terms of overeating or overdoing (pig out).  The only thing I use it for is "Ozone-depleting Substances" and that is a fairly specific term that most people would not know.

    Rank is the word we use for the level held by a person in the military, or in military-structured organizations such as the police.  Colonel Klink, Captain Kirk, Lieutenant Columbo, Sargeant Friday, Private Pyle.
