Shift + Delete = Bad
Delete = Good

Shift + Delete = False sense of empowerment
Delete = Wise approach to one’s own fallibility

Shift + Delete = Lost forever
Delete = Still there when you need it

Shift + Delete = Old Fool
Delete = Old Skool

Shift + Delete = Clever road to utter madness
Delete = Becoming one with the universe

The only thing you need to remember is :

like_this

not_like_this

    You should tell this to Bart. What he did on monday was a “Shift+Delete” on all the mails in his mailbox ๐Ÿ™‚
    —of course he was badly sick on that day.

    fine, as long as you do not consider the recycle bin as your backup device, as I’ve noticed some people do

      who would want to do that? it’s the recycle bizzle, by definizzle this means that you no longer need the shizzle.

    I already tried to convince the person in question that your definition is the only sane one, but no avail, she was still freaked out after I hit “empty recycle bin” in order to free up like 10G on the disk, and begged me not to ever do that again. It might be a women-thingie though, their mind works in really weird ways, especially when it comes to computers.
