comment Is “可以来 (ke3 yi3 lai2) …” an idomatic way to say “please bring me …”?
You are right regarding 'a burger please' is blunt. At least for myself, I will never use '可以' in chinese, it is just wierd, but i will add '谢谢' afterwards to make it more politely.

comment What is the difference between 秀才, 进士, 举人, and 甲第?
Female is forbidden to be educated in ancient china, and a female try to get a 状元 can lead to a death punishment. I know it is unfair, that is just happened in old times. So there is no corresponding expression for them, if people talk a female 状元, they just says 女状元, add a 'female' character before it.
