    I struggled to formulate a future perfect continuous passive example, unsuccessfully. Thanks for picking up the ball. And it even makes sense–woohoo!!

    Now, if I could just figure out why those monks should be hedonistic, and which of the various senses of ‘swag’ has a grammatical aspect…. Sometimes I wonder what planet Ryan North is from.
