Panic Attack

noun

The act of striking someone in the head with a frying pan.
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
-- Philip K Dick

What happens when all the renewable energy runs out?
-- Victoria Ayling

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Sidewalk Salsa (n.)

  1. When you and another person try to walk past each other going in opposite directions (generally on a sidewalk) and you can't get around each other, i.e. you step left, they step left, and when you step right, they step right.
        Usage Example: After helping him pick up his papers, we did a bit of sidewalk salsa before he grabbed my shoulders, moved me to the side, and walked past.

  2. The method by which Ray Narvaez Jr. gets to work every day.
        Usage Example: As Ray finished his sidewalk salsa, he promptly dropped his maracas, took off his sombrero, sat at his desk, and picked up his controller.

No one is gonna get the second one, but if anyone does that'll be great, 'cause Ray's the best.
