affords being peed on

Wonderful, and I am thinking what else affords? Doorknobs afford being grasped. The mouse is more affording than the touchpad or the little keyboard thingy. The world speaks to us, some things ask to be touched, others scream to be put down, killed off. Tim Berners-Lee’s aim was right when he invented the http protocol because cyberspace was affording it. The roots of the word afford seem to lie in carrying forward, a sort of “aforward”. Some things are screaming out to be invented.
