It's so obvious that I *didn't* recognize it immediately, thinking that,
surely, it must be some kind of trick question. What do English-speakers
outside of The World use to specify that phenomenon - or should that be
"phenomena"? - I wonder.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
