Re: Things you read and understood but mispronounced in your mind

Just remembered another one of these from years ago, a sort of counterpart of the teatable paradise of post #95 of this topic. I pondered what particular scandalous behavior a malefactor was guilty of. It was a bit of a disappointment to realize that it was just generalized evil, and that there were no femalefactors.
(A quick google reveals that there are many references, especially in writing about infertility, to both male factors and the female factors, but they swamp examples of the sort I tried to look for.)

*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

(Possible Corollary: it is, and we are .)
