Obama just used 'bigfoot' as a verb.

When you bullshit that you understand something technical, it takes absolutely fucking hours to write an email response to sensible questions on the topic.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I learnt why the pronoun (often 'it') always separates the English phrasal verb:

think it over

but the object doesn't necessarily separate the two parts:

write what I tell you down
write down what I tell you

You can use solider as a verb. "If you can solider in the jungle you can solider anywhere".

At a funeral today. One of the Undertakers was in the same year of school as me. We also share the same birthday. He looked ten years older than me. Which was nice as he always was a twat.
