Male…

…is not a species.  Sometimes the young males in my classroom may seem like a separate species, but they are not, so I wish the people my students are patterning themselves after would quit refering to ‘the male species.’  The expression is the male of the species.

And despite the stupid Smart & Final ad, the saying is ‘make hay while the sun shines’ not ‘make haste while the sun shines.’  It is refering to farmwork, making hay, which must be done in daylight.  There is no reason you could not make haste after dark.
