Obligatory "ignore this space" : https://sacoronavirus.co.za

Obviously, a coordinate is a relation. Obviously a parent-child relationship is more important. Before I attempt, with my bad relationship with God and bad relationship with myself, to explain the variance between a family tree and an abstract tree, or try to explain to my fans how to get a wife who doesn't talk to you (I assumed myself a wife because I need the status without which married people won't take me seriously), and a son, which I'll need to be credible, I simply tell my fans that they're incredible.

That goes for all of you.

Symbols first: we start with an arrow--the simplest we can draw. Now we draw the bow it is connected to, and then extend the curve of the bow until we have something circular (we don't need to see anything inside the circular shape). At the point of the arrow we imagine a Frenchman. Remembering that the act of war is encouraged by those who believe in the cycle of life, it may so be that there is another shaft involved, intended for a Frenchwoman.

As we know, a loving father will do everything to prevent his daughters from dying for their country, so that we know the archer is male (or disguised as a man); as we know, taking a man's heart is specifically excluded from being an act of war, under the condition that not a drop of blood is taken with it; as we know, he may choose to try to get it back by force, try to buy it back with gifts, or simply make a proposal to come to terms; as we thus conclude, stopping a man's proposal is either done out of greed, cupidity, or pure hatred.

Or maybe she was just multitasking her better nature.

A digraph is a representation of a binary relation.

I've overshot the mark by committing to stay in the same place, which is not an ideal one.

It is not ideal to contemplate being a father while you are yet considered innocent. It is not the best way of losing one's innocence by holding the opinion that a woman aught to have a natural childbirth unless there is great risk. That is, we know that there must be some risk that the mother dies. It would take a real stoner to then contemplate how his life might be were he to be left with a daughter to raise.

Daughters without fathers to speak of (shit-faced or drunkard), might congregate together around such a hypothetical father to give him advice as to how he might lose his innocence.

One multitasking man-hater in my life is enough.

My kingdom for a (natural) mouse.

Contrary to appearances, I'm the second least sexist person I know. But I know that we look for the simplest existence possible when we find that we have everything we need in someone else. Having nothing to show for this knowledge, I've had to spend my life amongst women who think I have lots to learn: who talk of the simple life, for instance.

And then to talk of things like joysticks and mouses as if they carry double meanings that I can't possibly know.

I aught to consider myself lucky, but I don't. I'm not interested in double meanings of things which prevent us going back to a simple life. The joystick or the mouse is irrelevant but that we know they can be used to move the pointer.

If our lives do indeed depend on computers with guis then we might consider it an act of war to go on playing double entendre after the honeymoon. Or perhaps it's a matter of multitasking the warring spirit with cupidity and hatred.

It would certainly be two out of three if I don't bring this lengthy preface to why-didn't-you-say-that-before.

It is incidental to an app, other than for the sake of documentation, that a mouse contains buttons.

A button is clicked and a key is pressed--this is the kind of variance that makes code very messy. Except for efficiency, a key press and a button press are handled exactly the same. The efficiency has to do with the pointer coordinate at the time of hold or release.

But this is merely an optimization we can cater for later. To save on deciding between the word button and the word key, we will choose the complementary terms for the two event-messages that are related to these things.

It is important, with any language, to know when it's nicer to use the defacto term than the fine old one: in this instance, 'click' does seem to be better than 'press'.

Hearing someone talk of clicking a key-button on the keyboard-slash-mouse is possibly going to take some getting used to.
