- How does it feel to...? and
- What does it feel like to...?

Can they be used interchangably?

1. How did it feel to be asked by Obama to play such an important role in the Inauguration?

2. How did it feel like to be asked by Obama to play such an important role in the Inauguration?

3. What did it feel to be asked by Obama to play such an important role in the Inauguration?

4. What did it feel like to be asked by Obama to play such an important role in the Inauguration?

Of the four, which is more natural?

What does it mean by full stop in these sentences?

The simple fact of the matter is that it costs too much to heat a home full stop.

Nuclear power proliferation sets the exact same No Future full stop for the nation.

The death penalty will be abolished. Full stop.

Now I am forced to conclude that he may just be the most puncheable man full stop.

So yes, it really is a sporty car full stop, and not just for such a large package.

- We should forgive him his faults.

I am not sure if this sentence is correct but what I am sure of is that it would be more correct if 'for' is put between him and his, am I right?

Wars, especially, have been linked to egregious sexual assaults, from mass rape committed by Soviet soldiers as they advanced into Germany during World War II to sexual violence amid the genocides in Rwanda in 1995. In fact, the ubiquity of sexual assault in wars makes those crimes a category unto themselves.

.....

I also found that this phrase can be used with many other nouns, for example:

- The beauty of Sugar Mountain is in its greens, which are a game unto themselves.

- The players are pragmatic, and present each fresh stumble as an event unto itself.

- She is a category of dance unto herself.

- We are not an island unto ourselves.

I wonder what it really means to be 'a something unto itself?
