Speaking of explicit lyrics, the Stones nail it in Satisfaction when they sing about “…some useless information, Supposed to fire my imagination”.[audio:https://shorterdocuments.com/audio/satisfaction.mp3]
That got me thinking about explicit and implicit information. Explicit useless info is the .00 cents in the $389,900.00 house listing. It’s the ‘left’ and ‘right’ identifiers for two-subject captions.
Explicit helpful info is the last exit before toll, last exit before construction, last gas for next 100 miles/km.
