    I had a neighbour who was talking about a know-it-all friend and said, "At least I know what I don't know and don't pretend that I know what I don't I know."

    The difference lies in the way "you don't know" can be interpreted, and what it refers to. The first y.d.k. refers to the second one, and the second one refers to stuff you don't know. The "red objects" one is a pure tautology.

    Hello BD

    I'm not sure what you mean by
    The "red objects" one is a pure tautology.
    Are you suggesting the property of redness is a red object or something else?

    All the best with your writing.

    Warmest regards
    Riis
    All writing is practise for the writing that follows.
    If it jams, force it; if it breaks, it needed replacing anyhow.
