To tamper with an image, usually to its detriment.
A high-rolling risk taker who would rather
be a spectacular failure than a dismal success.
Wishing you'd been born with an unfair advantage,
instead of having to try and acquire one.
When a man says it's a silly, childish game, it's probably
something his wife can beat him at.
Some early etymological scholars came up with derivations that
were hard for the public to believe. The term "etymology" was formed
from the Latin "etus" ("eaten"), the root "mal" ("bad"), and "logy"
("study of"). It meant "the study of things that are hard to swallow."

|#3963||Every Horse has an Infinite Number of Legs (proof by intimidation):|
Horses have an even number of legs. Behind they have two legs, and in
front they have fore-legs. This makes six legs, which is certainly an
odd number of legs for a horse. But the only number that is both even
and odd is infinity. Therefore, horses have an infinite number of
legs. Now to show this for the general case, suppose that somewhere,
there is a horse that has a finite number of legs. But that is a horse
of another color, and by the lemma ["All horses are the same color"],
that does not exist.
