The Fab Four Winds of the Standard Bridge Apocalypse

"I don't believe in progress," the lion told me.

"I don't believe that things stay the same," the monkey said in response.

I thought about it for a moment, and cleared the zoo animals out of my bedroom.



First, a poll for the monkey.

Poll #251286 The Monkey's Poll: Progress and Change

I challenge you to create a preposition in the English language which will spread and catch on. Like other prepositions in the English language ("from", "of", "at", "by") it should be codable, comprehensible, and useful. What's your preposition?

Please define the preposition.

Please use the preposition in a sentence.



Now for the lion's share.
