Writing on a computer makes saving what's been written too easy. Pretentious lead sentences are kept, not tossed. Instead of sitting surrounded by crumpled paper, the computerized writer has his mistakes neatly stored in digital memory.

在计算机上进行写操作使得保存所写内容太容易了. 自命不凡的句子被保留,不被抛弃. 电脑作家不必将自己的错误整齐地存储在数字存储器中,而不必坐在被弄皱的纸包围着的地方.

Just because a subject is serious doesn't mean it doesn't have plenty of absurdities.
