comment Positive euphemisms for desert?
@SvenYargs: Your second suggestion is absolutely terrific. Though it does not address the core feature of the desert, it would be a terrific substitute in many contexts.

Nice idea, thank you! Though this particular desert is not sandy, I could use 'the cliffs' or some other similar feature.

Crissov, that is a terrific word! I fear that the word would only confuse users due to its rarity, but I fully intend to used it to confuse in other situations. Thank you for introducing it to me!

Thank you, you can see in the OP why I ruled out 'lose'. By the way, I find it curious that this question generated a sudden flurry of activity. What caused you to find it, might I ask? Thanks!

Thank you, but as I mention in the OP, due to context, the be * needs to be a single word. I.e., a word of the same part of speech as benefit in the example.

By far the best word suggested.

comment What is the word that means -“to lose against a totally inexperienced opponent”?
Though it is perfectly cromulent to upvote anything to do with the Simpsons, despite the popular culture reference I would hate to think that this answer is the best option that the rich English language has to offer.

@JanusBahsJacquet: I once heard two larger women with beautiful accents talking in a bar. I asked "Are the ladies from England?" and one replies "wails". So I correct myself and ask "Are the whales from England?" Sure enough, I never got to date either one of them!

comment What's the term for not just being wrong, but the exact opposite of right?
Though I might see 'bass-ackwards' being somewhat acceptable in some circumstances, I strongly disagree with the original 'ass-backwards' being acceptable at all.

That won't work as I am using the sentence to provide a counterpoint to Who would benefit from... and the identical sentence structure is key.

@FumbleFingers: Yes, I think you're right again. I'll use suffer, and you might as well make that an answer. Thank you!

I've found hurt, languish, and agonize. None are perfect, but we're getting closer. I may have to settle on one of these. I'm sure that Edgar Poe wouldn't!
