    English has to be one of the hardest languages to understand. Read the paragraph below and try to understand the meaning.

    Two individuals proceeded towards the apex of a natural geologic
    protuberance, the purpose of their expedition being the procurement of a sample of fluid hydride of oxygen in a large vessel, the exact size of which was unspecified. One member of the team precipitously descended, sustaining severe damage to the upper cranial portion of his anatomical
    structure; Subsequently the second member of the team performed a self
    rotational translation oriented in the same direction taken by the first team member.

    In plain English what does this translate to?

    Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after!
