The banter

"Our language is amazingly supple. We can connect a limited number of sounds and signs to produce infinite number of sentences, each with a distinct meaning."

― Yuval Noah Harari, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

AvoBanter presents my mindFul, my way. The obvious is quite normal but AvoBanter presents the fourth dimensional perspective to every event or occurrence. The idea is to express our opinion based on facts and debate.

Signing off.

Yours truly,
