I have decided that no matter how compelling the story, I will no longer click on "Opposing Views" links, until they rid their pages of unblockable pop-ups that once closed, force you to scroll back down to find your place again. Why annoy your patrons?

Maybe all we need to do is buy some new tyres and set them on fire.

Or is that "fyre"?

Yes. You should always know the profession, and any hobbies,  of your intended victim.

a house where an ax-throwing competitor lives


Only if he is as competent with a melee weapon as he is with a ranged weapon.

Or it's a really big house.

What if the burglar was a chainsaw throwing competitor?  Things would've been a little different, wouldn't it?

'i'm going for a couple of britneys, and doubtless when it all goes pete tong we'll move on to the persians', is FAR more interesting than 'burglarize'

i bet a really dumb policeman thought one day that burglarize sounded much cleverererer than burgle, and then it just stuck! like dumb people saying myself or yourself, instead of me or you

I'm American and agree that "burglarize" sounds ridiculous. I mean if they were turning the house into a burglar somehow then maybe that would be correct usage of such a word, however improbable to accomplish in practice. I think it would also work if they were coating the house with a substance made of burglar puree, although that's just silly. Please just say "rob," everyone. kthxbye

burgle is just as old as burglarize, both date to the 1870s.

Rob and burgle mean two different things. Burgle is to steal from a location or building. Rob infers to steal from a person/with a person present. Not interchangeable, despite what news reporters may think.

I have to concede that you must be right about the difference between "rob" and "burgle." I was originally going to type "just say burgle" instead of "just say 'rob'," but "burgle" sounds so unnatural for Americans so I went with "rob" instead. Thank you for correcting me there.
