Perhaps we should rename this thread Pettifogging.

Yes but, "The Devil's in the Details". "Used for saying that something may seem simple, but in fact the details are complicated and likely to cause problems".

The Irish economy is performing strongly, but the devil is in the detail.

Never draw into an inside straight

where they hit and dissolve
there is the corner debris
little bits of bubbly red plastic
and fake metal trim
big sweepings ground down
from traffic delights
like holiday dandruff

the intersection for smashing
is only occasional, but deliciously
available to hear in my house
a sound to raise heads
from a pillow to say:
ď that one was loud ď

a---holes are like elbows, everyone has one.

There is no accounting for taste.

You are unique, just like everyone else.

Boss..."Get back to work, all I want to see is a--holes and elbows!".

NASA announced the finalists in the ďmost boring and  pointless naming of the newest roverĒ contest. The names all make me gag. The only one even remotely funny is by accident Iím sure: Vision. It is 2020 after all.  biggrin.gif

But remember when the British let the public decide the name of their new boat? We ended up with Boaty McBoatface. This is a true fact. I think I would prefer Rovey McRoverface to the nonsense NASA is considering.

Or how about Rover? I would love to hear news stories about the rover Rover.  embarassedlaugh.gif

Kind of odd that kids thought those up, too.  Just no sense of humor or irony, those tykes.  I wonder what some of the rejects were.  I would have liked to see something less ostentatious; maybe simple and alliterative: like "Red" "Rosy" or ... "Spot".

Re Boaty McBoatface - technically a vessel that size isn't a boat - it's a ship. That would have been a good one:  Shippy McShipface.   hockeygrin.gif  Alas, the powers that be rejected the peoples' choice and named it the "Sir David Attenborough" How British of them.
