"Somewhere in the middle. The string that's wound too tightly breaks; the string not wound tightly enough doesn't play -- so says Buddha. And this need for balance is also borne out by history. Every dictatorship has fallen, and every soft society has rolled over. Either path taken to an extreme leads to suffering, pain and sadness, and if not for yourself, then for others you come in contact with."
"Well, "flaccid' sounds pretty, but the meaning of it is not. Now, 'turgid' sounds like a war cry. Like maybe in the middle of a Hercules movie or Braveheart you'd hear somebody yell, 'Turgid!' So I choose turgid."
