The poor people have it.

  • $\begingroup$ Heh, I should have just searched this site! one, two, three, four, five, six, seven duplicates or near-duplicates. I'll vote to close as a dupe the main one, as the others provide precedent for near-matches being duplicates. $\endgroup$

That is tricky. Nothing comes to my mind.

Understand: "Nothing" comes to my mind.

Replace 'it' by 'nothing' and you get: If you eat nothing you die. etc.
