Folk wisdom revisited

As words and concepts change, sayings should change:

1. "A good baseball player fails two thirds of the time."
Baseball geeks now look at On Base Average, rather than Batting Average, so a good player fails about half the time.

2. "God doesn't make junk."
By contemporary meanings, God made junk for all of us, but some got the wrong kind and have to have it changed.
