Not _quite_ bad, is the essence of what you said. But don't fall over
yourself temporising, we all know that you meant to say "bad" without
actually committing yourself. (-:

Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the situation.
If at first you don't succeed, try a shorter bungee. When in trouble,
when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout. The two great secrets
of success are: don't tell anyone everything that you know.
