    Re: go/get

    It depends what 'it' refers to.

    We need more context.

    1. If I am talking about life in general, or the health of my cat, I would use getting. If I am talking about the performance of my car after its return from a service, or about how the course is running with our new teacher, I'd say going.

    2. There are very few occasions on which I'd use 'freakier', so I won't comment.
