comment What is the collective noun for “clouds”?
You mention "a fuck of clouds". This seems strange to me. Could you be thinking of "a fuck load of clouds" instead?

comment How can I express “sacrificing ease for quality” in a common expression?
@Mitch Thanks, I knew there was something wrong there! Also, I'm not looking for someone to write a sentence for me, I'm looking for a common way of expressing something. As you can see, my accepted answer is not a full blown sentence, but rather the idiom I was looking for: Cutting corners.
