    long for

    Hi,

    Do you long for some action with E=mc^2.

    I am just confused that how "long for" ,which means desire, is related to "some action with E=mc^2."

    Thank you.

    Re: long for

    I'm with you! It doesn't make sense, and the structure of that sentence calls for a question mark at the end.

    Re: long for

    Please tell us the source of that quote (name of the author and the title of the article/book in which you found it).

    There must have been some context too. What were the surrounding sentences?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
