For starters, to have a revolution, all one needs is a crank handle and a strong right arm.

Yeah. There’s one more tragedy that is not getting what one needs - badly…


The only tragedy is when things get out of hand, which is always open to interpretation, if you can grasp what I mean. Think Dancing Dancing

The word "tread" indicates a force used while, exempli gratia, walking. The readers do not use force if attempting to read. They mostly stop reading after discovering that the text already read out is not good. Fools may walk in where readers fear to contravene the reason.

I really like your sentence as forcing me to think.


Fools crush in where angels fear t'read...the pore things. crush = a fenced stock passage wherein the pen is mightier than the sword.

It'd sound and look more dignified if you had written "doesn't it?" rather than "isn't it?", which when immediately followed by "Do it diligently,..." suggests that someone who regularly visits this forum might like to reck their own rede a tad on the odd occasion.

As a matter-of-fact, everything matters. Thoughts?...did someone mention thoughts? I thought that thoughts were only feral figments of one's imagination, but I'll stand corrected should it really matter to anyone, provided they're not lazily lost in thought futilely trying to collect their far-fetched thoughts, which is usually but the bedevilled behaviour of grammar Nazis. Bad cess to 'em all, I say...say what?


Are you lawyer or something about? I really admire your capability to talk much and to say nothing. Just keep it going. It’s really interesting what balderdash you do bring next time. Please, don’t repeat yourself. Be creative.
