  • The ellipse...

    Why... do people... think...
    using an ellipsis...
    instead of proper punctuation... makes for... better ad copy?

      Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

            I recently worked a day labor job where the guy supervising us spoke in nothing but elliptical phrases. He would come over to where some of us were working and say, "Okay, gentlemen, we need for these tables to be over in that space and the others to be against the wall..."

            Then without further specification he would walk away and go talk to someone else. That went on all day.
            People will believe anything, which means I will believe anythingI want to start believing in things that have shapeliness and harmony.
