you = anyone? a specific group of people? just one person?

greed = the greed of the person who ends up looking stupid? someone else's greed?

Are the lyrics of a song relevant? Ditto music? Sunshine as in sunshiny weather? Holidays or hot countries relevant? The specific-ish group of people = HAM etc? Number of people? A demographic?

Are the lyrics of a song relevant? Ditto music? No to both. Sunshine as in sunshiny weather? Yes, but... Holidays or hot countries relevant? No. The specific-ish group of people = HAM etc? H, A, irr Number of people? From 1 to hundreds. A demographic? I think they're considered one for some purposes.

This is a very specific stab in the dark, but I'll ask it:

Does this have anything to do with climate change denial?

Would the sunshine disprove a theory? Disprove the existence of something? Or of someone?

Does it affect people in a particular location? Engaged in a particular activity?

Is sunshine directly relevant?
If so, does sunshine relevantly impair vision?
Generate heat?
Reveal something previously hidden?
Cause sunburn?
Change the way something looks?

Or is it relevant in a more indirect way? Such as causing people to do outdoor activities?

Is greed related to someone present? To the manufacturer of a particular product? To someone providing a service? To someone engaged in criminal activity?

Is tanning involved at all?

Did the greed cause the manufacturer of a product/service to cut corners? And this becomes more obvious in sunlight?

Do greed and sunlight work together to make one look stupid? Does sunlight cause the same visual effect that greed would cause, even if it were not in sunlight?

Look stupid: just visually appear ridiculous? Does the person look like they did something stupid? DID they likely do something stupid? Their clothing involved? Skin? Hair? Something they say? Or do? Their car?

Is tanning involved at all? No.

Did the greed cause the manufacturer of a product/service to cut corners? Yes. And this becomes more obvious in sunlight? No, if greed is the cause then sunlight is not necessary.

Do greed and sunlight work together to make one look stupid? No. Does sunlight cause the same visual effect that greed would cause, even if it were not in sunlight? Yesish. The sunlight usually causes it on a greater scale.

Look stupid: just visually appear ridiculous? Yes. Does the person No. look like they did something stupid? But yes. DID they likely do something stupid? No. Their clothing involved? Skin? Hair? Something they say? Or do? Their car? This.

Postby irishelk » Wed May 15, 2019 12:42 pm

Is cleaning a car relevant? Streaks left on a car after cleaning? Any particular part of the car relevant? If so, windows? Interior?

Is it a high intensity of light that reveals something? Is the car relevantly heated up by sunshine? Does something on/in the car cease to function?

Makes you look stupid: does the car look very unusual? Does it "behave" in a ridiculous way? Does it seem like the card didn't receive proper maintenance? Proper cleaning? Got in an accident?

Does it look like a mechanic did something stupid? A car salesman? The manufacturer? Another person who is not the owner of the car?
