Compare and Contrast Cliches

Whenever you read something about the real world environment the words 'pristine' and 'fragile' are inevitably used when someone wishes to halt some form of development.

By way of contrast, in the computer environment, the words 'strong' and 'rich' are overused in describing a particular environmental development.

I think the cliche police ought to intervene and bar the use of pristine and fragile for nature and strong and rich for computers until equal numbers of pristine and fragile have been used in describing computers and strong and rich in describing real world environments.

To get things started, I am writing this blog on my pristine and fragile Acer laptop whilst in the midst of our strong and rich weed infested backyard.
