    25. Taciturnity is aurous.

    26. Splintered wood and mineral chunks can rupture my skeletal system, but nomenclatures do not injure me.

    27. An amorous attraction to a financial medium of exchange is the source of everything sinful.

    28. Visualizing is the equivalent to having faith.

    29. Pulchritude pertains solely to the epidermis.

    30. Immature homo sapiens should be endowed with visibility but not oral facilities.

    33. One more than one is a congenial group of invited guests, but one more than two is a multitude.

    34. Hemoglobin is more viscous than H2O

    35. Perambulate in moccasins, and shoulder a gargantuan wooden rail.
