Keeping in line with yesterday’s post, here’s another dig on the English language, this too from cyberspace. (I couldn’t find any author information).
You think you’re good in English? Test your skills here. Read the paragraph below, & try to understand it’s meaning. Then look for the answer below (Unh-unh, don’t peek! Test yourself first!)
So here goes-
Two individuals proceeded towards the apex of a natural geologic
protuberance, the purpose of their expedition being the procurement
of a sample of fluid hydride of oxygen in a large vessel, the exact
size of which was unspecified.
One member of the team precipitously descended, sustaining severe
damage to the upper cranial portion of his anatomical structure;
subsequently, the second member of the team performed
self-rotational translation, orientated in the same direction taken by the
first team member.
Were you able to figure it out?
Scroll down to read the same thing in simple language.
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after!
So, did you figure it out? I know I didn’t. x
