I agree - I can easily attain my goal of providing utter confusion without
resorting to Bushonics, Cajun, etc. merely by replacing all sentence objects
with the word "it", italicizing irrelevant items in a paragraph, bold-facing
verbs, and (my favorite) using dramatic WARNINGS and referring to another
document for details (which don't exist).
