Looking for the worst of the worst.

I was surprised to discover that there is no way to sort an Amazon search or browse within a category by user review--more specifically from lowest to highest. Is there a workaround for this? Or perhaps an app or script I could use? Or even a third party site that sorts it for you? I'm mostly interested in being able to browse a category and see the lowest ranked items, but I'd settle for ranked search results also.

difference between an Ambassador Extraordinary and an Ambassador?

I noticed that sometimes instead of an ambassador embassies have what they call an 'Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary.' (I came across this in german: 'Außerordentlicher und Bevollmächtigter Botschafter' — I hope I didn't mangle the english translation.) [more inside]

Bad Constable, Bad Constable / Whatcha gonna do?

CanuckFilter: Members of the Ontario Provincial Police, as well as a variety of other Canadian police forces, employ the rank of 'Constable' rather than 'Officer'. Is it inappropriate to refer to a Canadian policeman or -woman as "Officer?" If, say, you're pulled over for speeding, does it matter if you address the police representative as "officer"? (I ask this as a Canuck who has never referred to the police as anything other than "officers" or "cops". It never occurred to me until today to use any other designation. And no, I'm not in trouble with the law. I'm just curious.)
