You're fine most of the time. You usually give plenty of details and examples to convey your thoughts. That makes up for the lack of conciseness that would otherwise come from knowing the right words to use. For example, your last post in the "Why do we do what we do" thread could've been expressed in about 5 sentences instead of a few paragraphs.

It's just, sometimes, I think I see it outside. I don't know for sure though. Any advice?

Get a bunch of cameras and record everything. Demonstrate that it's there. Validate your claim. Even if you get torn in half and your entrails hang from a tree, at least we'll eventually see the footage.

Dear Emp,
About how many cameras would you recommend, and where? Also, CCTV? Or something else? Lastly, about how much would all of the equipment cost?

Sincerely,
Spirit

Dear Spirit,

At least 3, depending on how big the area is. More is better.

At least one on yourself, tied to your shoulder(s) or something, and two or more overlapping the area(s) where you most often see (or think you see) these things so if something shows up it won't be called a camera error. (Best case would be to minimize blind spots with multiple 7-15ft poles, each with a globe of 12 cameras on the end of it: 3 layers; 4 cameras per layer, each pointed 4-way; middle row horizontal; top row aimed up 20deg, alternate between openings in middle row; bottom row aimed down 20deg, positioned to mirror top row.)

I recommend linking them to some form of vid storage (like the internet, or at least to a computer) in case they get damaged by something or someone.

It shouldn't cost more than a few hundred. Borrow from friends and family if you can, but I don't recommend directly telling them what you're doing because they might prank you.

-Emp

Dear Anonymousse,

First and foremost, It's imperative that I evince gratitude towards one such as yourself for composing such a meticulous missive, albeit it was apropos of initially resolved concerns. Simply, it was circumlocution, not to disparage the verbiage en masse.

Of course, one can tell from a glance that you speak eloquently and it is only felicitous if I compose an erudite response. I implore for you not to ridicule me conceding that my humble self stumble around these words and spew an incoherent response, for I not claim nor aspire to be a word maven.
For my rejoinder to your trivial enquiry, or to be more accurate, question of confirmation on what is this thread of, the concise reply is yes.

Now, you may read this segment should you require me to elucidate my answer (since I sincerely doubt you'll be satisfied with such a laconic disclosure). What this is, positing you've read the initial post in its entirety, and I mean peruse, not skim, then it is inferential that you've ought to have already understood the content of which lies presently. We not claim to be authoritative figures on such matters when one arduously attempts to resolve another individual's difficulties, so clear your suspicions about anyone's doing this for the sake of pretension (although, thus far, most have answered in a jocular and blithe fashion without sincerely attempting to resolve whatever affair they've replied to, so I demur it is such, nevertheless)

This thread's role is to be the host for anyone who may have an issue, diminutive or not, to post so that others whom are eager may assist towards the resolution of the issue. Individuals that post may possess sincere will to bequeath succor (pun intended should one perceive it) to whomever bear a plight.

Now, despite my vain attempts to simply reasserting your doubts in question, I've conveyed the impression as being loquacious for which I apologize for due to it being unintended, but that is another matter entirely.
Logophile out.

Sincerely,
Riptizoid101

Dear Unsigned,

First of all, best of luck with any and all future employment endeavors. As a mere space bull fighter, I can only give you so much advice. I'm going to assume that you are referring to consulting companies, and not Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm, a former West German aircraft company.

When fighting space bulls, it is important to realize that are moments in which you must wait for the bull to charge, and moments when you must charge the bull. True talent in space bullfighting comes from having enough wisdom to be able to tell the difference.

When presented with a case, you must know when it is okay to take the time to think, and when you must impress your interviewer with your speed and decisiveness. You need to be able to turn the tables on the interviewer by asking thoughtful clarifying questions. You will probably not be given sufficient information initially.

Another thing I learned from bullfighting is that it is crucial to make sure that your sword has been well honed prior to combat. You will most likely have to call ahead to find out whether or not you can bring a sword to the interview.

Sincerely,
Aknerd

Dear Anonymousse and Riptizoid101

Well done.

Best,
Aknerd

How else will he know for sure that it's there, without being the crazy "I done seen it with me own eyes" person?

If something will enter your house you will hear it.

Not if it teleports.

Dear Community,

This one is a simple problem.

How do you tell someone they are an idiot? Or wrong? Or that they messed up?

Sincerely,
Aknerd

Don't forget, it could already be in his house. Like, crawling around on the ceiling with its head turned the wrong way. And even though its really really big, you can't ever actually see it because its somehow just always in the corner of your eye. Watching you- and waiting.

All the best,
Aknerd
