Government is simply the word for those things we choose to do badly together.
The first time I ever saw that word was in Churchill's history of WW II, where he warns Pétain and Weygand that relinquishing the French Fleet to the Nazis would "scarify their names for a thousand years of history".(vol. II, "Their Finest Hour", p. 217)
Uhm, the root word of Scarification isn't "scare" it's "scar". In horticulture, it means to damage the outer coating of a seed to encourage germination.It has other meanings, including Body modification.
Thank god DR doesn't make a scabbler. yet.
htrn,Yes, but the DR voiceover guy made it sound like their mower would leap out from behind doors and yell "BOO!" at the ground.
Whirling blades do a great job of scare-ing ( or scaring ) me.
Hmm, a garden implement that terrifies plants into growing...There's a patent in there somewhere.
1. This is why I don't read your blog with food in my mouth, the two have proven incompatible;2. I believe tomorrow after work I shall say, "boo," to my lawn, and see what happens. I mean, just to be safe.
