foul-weather friend - (n.) An acquaintance you don't see very much of, or hear from, until you find yourself in need of help or support. Then these folks suddenly show up as though you are blood kin and begin to shower you with help. The more desperate your need, the more assistance they provide. They do not seek payment or return, but offer help freely because they're just ... nicer than the rest of us. [The opposite of "fair-weather friend," used to describe people who are "friends" while everything is good, but vanish when things get rough.]

e.g., The most extreme example of foul-weather friend I have personally seen occurred about ten or twelve years ago when my wife suddenly realized, as she walked in the door, that she did not have her purse. It had evidently disappeared from her grocery cart after (or perhaps while) she was unloading groceries from it into the car. We drove back to the store and spent quite a while looking for it, while hurriedly cancelling the credit cards and such. The real loss, however, was the $200+ dollars which were in it, part of which was our son's entire birthday budget. While I searched the host of shopping carts in the parking lot, my wife went into the store to ask the manager whether a purse had been found. I found nothing and went into the grocery store to find my wife. As we stood there together, distraught and frustrated, a woman came up to us and handed my wife $200. She had overheard us, and wanted to help. We could only blink and mumble our thanks; and when we asked her name so that we could pay her back when we could, she said, very seriously, "Just pay it forward someday." We don't even know her name.

fragged - To inflict a wound on oneself accidentally. From the military slang used in the Vietnam War, if not quite with the same meaning. Alternative spellings include "fregged," "frigged," "frogged," and "frugged."

The Sixties Project Glossary of Military Terms & Slang from the Vietnam War defines fragging as "the assassination of an officer by his own troops, usually by a grenade" -- or fragmentation bomb, fragmentation grenade.

There's rather extensive writeup in Webster's Online Dictionary, but all definitions refer to intentional fire.

Oh, and she was buried in Texas a week later.

fremdschämen - Fremdscham is the noun form, used for times when someone else feels embarrassed for you. | A feeling of joint embarrassment -- even though the person empathized with may not even realize that she's "embarassed [her]self in front of friends, family, the whole country, [the] entire hemisphere, and the person she loves." | From Wiktionary: Reflexive, informal to feel ashamed about something someone else has done; to be embarrassed because someone else has embarrassed herself (and doesn't notice)." With Hillary Clinton having recently made the news with her use of the word empathy, an empathy-related word is in order.

Word of the Week: Fremdschämen

Nov 8, 2013

fremdschämen Have you ever watched someone make a fool of [herself], only to find yourself cringing in embarrassment for [her]? Then you’ve most likely experienced fremdschämen.

This German word is made up of two parts, with fremd meaning “foreign” and schämen meaning “to be embarrassed.” The term is typically used to describe someone who feels embarrassment on behalf of someone else. The corresponding noun for this feeling is Fremdscham.

Let’s say, for example, that you’re at a black-tie event where everyone is dressed in a suit or an evening gown. You look across the room and see one guest dressed in sneakers, jeans and a t-shirt. This guest has no shame, and could care less about how [she]e looks, but you cringe in embarrassment on [her] behalf. In this case, you would be exhibiting feelings of fremdschämen.

Similar English equivalents include the terms “vicarious embarrassment” and “empathetic embarrassment,” but neither are as commonly-used as the German word fremdschämen.

The word is still relatively new in the German language; the popular dictionary Duden recognized it for the first time in its 2009 edition, after German speakers commonly began using it in conversation. It is unclear when exactly it was first used, but Dr. Sören Krach, a researcher at the University of Marburg, told N-TV that he first heard of the word in the year 2007. It has since become a trendy word in the modern German language, and was even chosen as the 2010 Word of the Year in Austria.

Researchers at the University of Marburg were fascinated with the term. In 2011, Krach and his colleague, Frieder Paulus, published the first major study about the effects of fremdschämen $mdash; an emotion that only humans are able to experience. In order to feel it, humans need to be able to possess empathy, which specific neurons in the brain make possible. Fremdschämen— the ability to feel someone else’s embarrassment— is connected to similar neuron transmissions.

So next time you see someone with food in their teeth while giving an embarrassing speech at the office, you can use the German word fremdschämen to describe how the situation makes you feel. And let’s hope that you yourself don’t become the target of someone else’s Fremdscham.


e.g., "The Germans have an excellent word: 'Fremdschämen.' It's that feeling of embarrassment you have on behalf of people who don't have the sense to feel embarrassed for themselves, like Joe Biden, or the cast of 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.'"

Alternative spelling: frienemy.)

e.g., We hang out a lot and have a lot of the same interests, but we're always competing and trying to one-up each other. I guess that makes us frenemies more than friends.

A recitation of your personal favorites (actors, food, places, books, music, movies, sports, fashions, activities, vacations, and so on) like the list Fraulein Maria recites in the Sound of Music ("Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens"---although frankly, the dew on most roses in the 21st century comes from a spray bottle, kitten-whiskers are a fairly bizarre favorite for anybody, and wool makes me itch like a thousand fleas....(I have no problem with bright copper kettles)). [From the German _Freude_"joy" taken from the exultant chorus in Beethoven's 9th symphony. The proper plural is actually _Freuden_ in German, but unless I'm reading or listening to something in German, my old brain falls back on familiar English plural markers---hence, "freudes."]

e.g., Some of my own freudes: children's smiles and the smell of rain, the eyes of the old and the silence of a heavy snow, a hot shower and a cold drink, waves in a wheat field and falling asleep to the sound of breaking waves, the joy of the open road and the melancholy beauty of a thunderstorm far off on the grasslands, a bite of a favorite dish and a kiss from the one you love.

"But when someone intentionally attempts trails/obstacles that are well beyond the rigs capability, it just frosts my grommet, esp. if he happens to be in my group or in front of me." |  
"This really chaps my ass and frosts my grommet when I think about it. I forked out $180 for my ticket (my fault, missed the early bird sale) and I think it was about $120 for the RV site." |  
"How did 'liberal' get to be a dirty word? I know that seems to contradict the headline, but it frosts my grommet that the popular usage of an important word gets twisted around to mean something almost diametrically different than what the dictionary says." |  
"But the fact that a federal agency can just tell a company not to complete a multi-zillion-dollar facility because some union members across the continent from them donít want it built just frosts my grommets. And Harry Reid comparing the NLRBís stand to the Founding Fatherís approach to government takes my grommets down to 0 degrees Kelvin." |  
"Still, though, stuff like this really frosts my grommet; since the rest of us (and our companies) end up footing the bill." |  
"A minor gripe, but still one of those things that frosts my grommet." |  
"(In light of the terrifying power of censorship, I've decided to cravenly cower to the squeaky wheels that run this society, and replace all possibly-vulgar terms with the names of medieval weapons). This whole situation really frosts my grommets: while Bettman and his many Flameberges may puff out their chests and point to themselves for doing the right thing, it's pretty moronic to think of hockey as some sort of forum for a debate on morality and censorship. Hockey is entertainment, plain and simple. . . ." |  
"Frankly I think Vovin and Windsearcher22 just wanted to see how I'd handle the situation. I've tried not to be vulgar or downright mean but being called 'stupid' - especially by someone who has proven themselves to be just that -- really frosts my grommets." |  
"That kind of stuff honestly gets deep under my cranky old man skin and frosts my grommets to no end." |  
"And do you want to know what really frosts my grommet? What the opponents of same-sex marriage are doing now is not demonstrably different than what whites in the Deep South were doing in the 1950s. Equal rights for blacks were going to arrive; it was only a matter of how long people would have to wait for justice to be served." |  
"Thatís another big part of what frosts my grommet about this frenzy of Halper bashing: Itís not just his good name and reputation that are getting smeared, itís the good name and reputations of a whole battalion of people who worked on that epic auction." |  
"Of the three players mentioned in the previous paragraph, I am convinced that Bonds and Clemens will both ultimately be admitted to the Hall of Fame. Bonds is so thoroughly despised by so many in the fourth estate that his election could very well take several years, but eventually heíll have to be voted in. Though it frosts my grommet to say it, he was the best player of his generation." |  
"Dude? It really frosts my grommets when I hear someone calling people 'dude.' That's just rude." |  
Just about anything I hear Chuck Schumer say frosts my grommet.

e.g., You can read about some very funest experiences at The Darwin Awards. | Throwing gasoline on a fire won't "win" you a Darwin Award, but it can be a funest experience that removes your genes from the gene pool. You don't actually have to throw gas on a fire to have the experience. Throwing it within a few feet can result in the vapors igniting and exploding, knocking you on your ass. If you're able to walk away at all, you're likely to have some burns -- and less hair on your arms, body, and head than you did a second or so earlier. "HD, what happened to your eyebrows?

fx paradox - (n. sometimes "EE'fex") Our culture's refusal to suspend disbelief when watching movies: We insist upon well-nigh perfect special effects (i.e., we WANT to be fooled into thinking that what we see is "real"), and then we want to see how they did it (e.g., "The Making of the Lord of the Rings," "Doctor Who Confidential," or director's commentary track). The paradox: we want a permanent backstage pass: clap at the illusion, then sneak backstage and extort the secret from the magician. (Also knows as "Howell's Syndrome," after William Dean Howell's advocacy of absolute realism in turn-of-the-20th literature: Howell's believed real life should replace "romantic exaggerations" in art. This is probably the same trend that started all the ludicrous "reality tv" shows we're forever being forced to undergo.)

e.g., "I love that part in AVP where the alien almost bites Lex's face off---that is so cool." "Well, you know, Sanaa Lathan didn't like that scene because of all the drool---which was really KY Jelly, and--" "Would you can it with the FX Paradox crap and let me enjoy the show?!"
