patch one ten - 1. Something which will never happen. 2. Something which has been delayed for a very long time.

e.g., 1. Ted: Your winning the lottery is a patch one ten; the odds are astronomical against you. You're more likely to get hit by lightning. Ed. Yeah, but who wants to get hit by lightning? 2. We handed in those essays last month and we still don't have them back. Looks like they're patch one ten now.

paternoland - A place where football-crazy folks suffer from "what [David Israel, The Washington Star] calls 'the delusion that the ability to win football games indicates anything at all about your character or intelligence other than that you can win football games.'" Pennsylvania State University and environs, in particular.

e.g., Once upon a time, in the not so distant past, the heart of Paternoland was referred to as Happy Valley, but Paternoland surely extends far beyond Happy Valley. | Did those in power in Paternoland really think it was acceptable for a pederast to rape a child as long as he didn't do so on the university campus? From the board of trustees down through the university president, a vice president, athletic director, head football coach, assistant football coach, to the janitorial staff? Well, admittedly, janitors can be easily intimidated precisely because they're so lacking in power.    A ytpo now corrected (down trustees) makes me wonder if the PSU Board of Trustees may someday be known as the "board of clown trustees"? Perhaps, rather than "trustees," some of them will soon be known as "trystees." Whatever, only if you're still riding the turnip truck should you believe that no one on the PSU BOT knew or suspected Sandusky's behavior. Such naïveté rarely exists in the world of big money. Never forget that PSU football has represented big money during Paterno's reign. PSU's endowment has grown from a handful of $ millions when Paterno became head coach to >$1.25 billion in 2009. A football program that brings in $70 million a year could have a lot to do with that.
