"Alt happens" is the alt-variant of "Shift happens" (Forrest Gump).

Probably I'm not from earth. To click "cognitively and temporally" or to
"conceptualize" separate mouse states is not my thing. I simply think before
I click just the same as I think before I talk or write.

So I better stop here. And use simple click actions for my simple stacks
which do not intend to be great apps, so they don't need any avant-garde
UI design.
