Actually I think I can guarantee that the next one will involve towels. I know a guy who knows a guy ...

 

And what has exRoadie been smokin' ?

 

Back to business:

Sep 30: I was modding my case, not holding the dremel tight enough as it turned out, and would you know the damn 'motha bored' my finger sup'um real hurtful."

Oct 01: Though it 's said that "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter", the random murders of innocent non-combatants is the essence of terrorism, the proponents of which evil must be brought to justice.

Ok so since I know nothing about technology, I don't usually have a whole lot to say on this forum, but I figure since I am going to be a teacher, I should try to enrich your minds. Everyday I will post a word of the day, give you a definition, a little history of it, and then use it in a sentence. After that I want you all to post what the word means to you or use it in a sentence or something, JUST STAY ON TOPIC! Man I already sound like a school teacher. Anyways here is our word of the day:

 

*****

 

3.October 2nd, 2006 geriatric, a. and n.-1. adj. a. Of or pertaining to geriatrics; designed for use by old people. b. In weakened use, esp. contemptuously: old or senile.

 

2. noun a. An old person receiving geriatric care; a patient in a geriatric ward or institution. b. In weakened use: an old or senile person.

-OED definition

 

-Geriatrics was coined 1909 by Ignatz L. Nascher (1863-1944) in "New York Medical Journal" on the model of pediatrics.

 

-The term comes from the Greek "geros" meaning "old man" and "iatros" meaning "healer."

 

-While originally a distinct clinical specialty, it has been integrated as a specialism of general medicine since the late 1970s.

 

Brett Farve IS NOT geriatric, Angry!

 

Watching football tonight, I realized that the NFL does not need another geriatric ex-hero as it is disgusting to watch old men still trying to hang on to their glory days.

 

(my homage to momma's word of the day and my riteration that Brett IS a geriatric %[email protected]#[email protected]# lol)

1. September 29th, 2006 Floccinaucinihilipilification - Considering something to be worthless

 

-At 29 letters, it is the longest non-technical word in the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary.

-The OED dates its first use in literature at 1741 in William Shenstone's Works in Prose and Verse.

-The word is said to have been invented as a joke by a student of Eton College, who, upon consulting a Latin textbook, found four words connoting 'nothing' or 'worthless', combined them, and added verb endings.

-The word appeared in a Double Jeopardy! Round REALLY LONG WORDS clue in game #4962 of Jeopardy!, aired 2006-03-21. Alex Trebek gave up trying to pronounce the word while reading the clue.

(Facts found on Wikipedia)

 

"I loved him for nothing so much as his flocci-nauci-nihili-pili-fication of money".

-William Shenstone

how would one pronounce this word?

HK-47: It is suggested you run while my blasters heat up, meatbag.

 

HK-47: Explanation: two per cent probability that the miniature organic is simply looking for trouble and needs to be blasted. That may be wishful thinking on my part, master.

 

:D

 

HK-47: Statement: HK-47 is ready to serve, master.

Jedi: You don't need to call me master, you know.

HK-47: Query: Don't I? I was under the assumption that organic meatbags such as yourself enjoyed such forms of address.

Jedi: "Organic meatbags?"

HK-47: Retraction: Did I say that out loud? I apologize, master. While you are a meatbag, I suppose I should not call you as such.

Jedi: You just called me a meatbag *again*!

HK-47: Explanation: It's just that... you have all these squisy parts, master. And all that water! How the constant sloshing doesn't drive you mad, I have no idea...

Jedi: Neither do I, come to think of it...

HK-47: Statement: Now do you understand the travails of my existence, master? Surely it does not compare to your existence, but still...

Jedi: I survive. Somehow.

HK-47: Commentary: As do I. It is our lot in life, I suppose, master. Shall we find something to kill to cheer ourselves up?

 

(HK-47 is the only assassin I could think of XD)

Come on, IG-88 is a far superior assassin in the Star Wars universe. At least he was featured in one of the original movies. (Empire)
