definitions don’t make things happen. Actions do.

By definition, absolutely smile emoticon But after finding a few really weird definitions of words in the OED (Oxford English Dictionary), traced it back to the first full publication in 1928 and found even WEIRDER definitions then…

..I realized that “definition” is far more vague and subject to human judgement error than I was taught to believe.

So… while yes that _should_ be true by definition, definitions don’t make things happen. Actions do. Predicted consequences tend to be more hope than solid, alas.
