Av,

I think of the captain of the British sea-going sub-chaser aircraft during WWII. I've admired for years the brevity and finality (and alliteration) of his log-entry for that day. Wow!

("Sighted sub.
Sank same.")

Flush with admiration (though we despise war, of course).

That depends upon the strength of the vortex
And the strength of the vortex depends on ones intent and energies
Wisdom and compassion may tell one not to leave the leg out in the first place??

Car body is dimpled like a golf ball, presumably to suppress major vortices and cut down air resistance (helping the vehicle cut through the air with less aerodynamic drag, and better stability of trajectory). A vortex-suppressing car!

Maybe car owners should leave dings and dents in, if they get them; why have them hammered out?

Just park your car near a golf-course or driving-range, protect the glass, and come back in a few hours; it may look even better than this.

ha, ha, Guo Gu,

Well done!

You rascal, you. Thanks for the "case".
The "vortex" is a pictorial "avatar" of someone here.

Endlessly wrapped around just itself, swinging arms. No one may get close. Dizzying. Tiring. A tenuous and highly-charged plasma: Caution!.

Comment:

Drink the good water if you've got it. Water is where you find it, and is for sharing.

Verse:

Faced with a cyclone,
let's head to the storm cellar.
A water-seller!
