staritoriality - (pronounced like "territoriality," with an /s/ before it; n.) The area over which a cat believes herself to rule, haughtily opening her eyes and flicking her ears toward interlopers (especially other animals) and then, after a few moments (during which, I imagine, the interloper is supposed to tremble in fear, lest her royal felinity command her retainers (that's us) to put them to death or feed them to something bloodthirsty)---after a few moments, her miaojesty slowly closes her Eyes (I always capitalize the Eyes of a cat for some reason) and regally turns away, allowing the intruder to remain ... or flies at it in a hissing and spitting, claws unsheathed, to drive it from her domain. [Coined by my daughter in reference to her cat, Piper.]

e.g., "I thought you were getting more ice cream." "I was, but your cat's sitting on top of the freezer doing that staritoriality thing they do." "So?" "Well, staritoriality creeps me out. It was, like, 'Open this freezer, human, and I'll scalp you.' So I just left."

statriotism - (Rhymes with "patriotism"; n.) A political belief that holds (1.) that the United States of America is an association of separate_States_rather than a single political entity cut up into various administrative provinces by the central government, and that each such state has willingly surrendered various powers---and those powers alone---to the federal government for the good of all; (2.) that the federal legislature's (congress's) gradual erosion of these powers (especially through the Commerce Clause (?!) of the US Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3 (I think))), has led to runaway spending, confrontational politics focused on party agenda rather than resolution of issues, and, finally, the evanescence of individual responsibility in a miasma of ignorance and anomie; and (3.) that the solution may be to refocus our politics locally, without (of course) losing whatever comprehension each of us may retain of (a) how the federal government is supposed to work (I suggest reading the Constitution (it's really not all that long (more's the pity))), as well as (b) our civic responsibilities federally. [A very obvious combination of "state" and "patriotism."] [Oh, and this word has no connection (well, it isn't supposed to, anyway) to statism (which is very nearly the opposite of statriotism).]

e.g., If it accomplishes nothing else, the rise of statriotism might at least rekindle sufficient state pride to design some brighter and more creative flags (please see "vexilopathy"). I also hope that statriotism may encourage Americans to take greater part in their own local (city and county) government. Perhaps we might also see an increase in state join-the-union holidays (I, myself, was born in Seattle (Washington state's admission date is November 11th); but I lived my formative years in Virginia (June 25th), Maryland (April 28th), and, most of all, in Pennsylvania (December 12). I mean, come on: over half the state flags in the country are just blue rectangles with the State Seal (like a full-blown achievement of arms, with shields, supporters, scrollwork, scrambled egg, state mottoes, various other heraldic devices, the whole nine yards). Imagine a US flag consisting, not of stars and stripes, but a big blue rectangle with the Great Seal of the United States in the middle ... It doesn't bear thinking on. Think about this too: many of the state flags include the state's name. Why? A flag is supposed to cry out its state's identity without the watcher needing to be within reading range. Okay. I'll shut up.

sticking the nut - Head butting.

: Dear Straight Dope:

Have you noticed that skull-crashing is catching on in the movies? In the 2005 Wes Craven thriller Red Eye [warning: mild spoiler follows] the villain (Cillian Murphy) deliberately crashes his skull into the forehead of the leading lady (Rachel McAdams), sending her into unconsciousness. Later, she crashes her skull into his forehead, and this time he's the loser. My question is, in real life does anyone deliberately do this skull-crashing business? How do you know, when you crash your skull into someone's forehead, that you will stay conscious while they fly off to la-la land? -- John Hollenhorst, Salt Lake City

SDSTAFF Gfactor replies:

First of all, John, it's not usually called "skull-crashing" -- the practice you're referring to is typically known as head-butting. And yes, sometimes people really do engage in it.

The most widely witnessed real-life head-butt in history was almost certainly the one given by French soccer star Zinedine Zidane to Italy's Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup finals. Materazzi later admitted he had provoked Zidane, and both players were disciplined. In a 1992 New York Times article, Morgan Gendel reported that soccer players in the northern British Isles called the maneuver "sticking the nut," and that it was a "street-fighting move popular mostly in working-class sections of Britain and Ireland."

Of course, head-butting is unwelcome in most sports, even those directly involving combat. A head-butt motion shows up sometimes in the traditional sequences of karate moves known as kata (there's one at about 1:21 in this clip of the kata called Gojushiho Dai), but head-butting an opponent is off-limits in competition.

e.g., Believe me, you don't want to teach your grandson how to stick the nut. People got bloody noses after I did it -- and they were not happy with me.

stirk - A Cumbrian (Beatrix Potter country, Lake District) dialect word for a sound, resolute man of good character. The term dates back to the annals of the 8th Earl of Workington (1311-1402), the first Stirk of Stirk. In those days there were many cross border raids where the Picts and the Scots would come down from the north laying waste to all in their path, stealing the cattle, the grain, and many of the local women. The 8th Earl organised patrols along what was left of Hadrian's Wall and organised the local yeomen (free men) into fighting forces and for a period the border raids were resisted and repelled. So peaceful was it for the duration of the lifetime of the 8th Earl that the farmers east of Carlisle prospered to such an extent that they called their homeland Eden Vale for it brought forth plenty. In 1403, a year after the death of the extremely aged earl, a huge memorial was erected in his honour at Lanercost Priory. No one knows why, but the hugely elaborate monument bore just the simple inscription "Truly this man was the Stirk of Stirk." Unfortunately, when the priory was dissolved in 1536 under the orders of Henry VIII, the monument was destroyed along with many of the other buildings.

e.g., My father was far from the Stirk of Stirk.

storm in a tea - Found in a comment regarding the News of the World phone-hacking scandal, it's a shortening of the British idiom "storm in a teacup," which is the British equivalent of Americans' "tempest in a teapot." Michael Quinion says, “Either way, itÔŅĹs a delightful phrase for a fuss about nothing very much, or a dispute of only minor or local importance.” According to Quinion, the American idiom originated some time before 1840. From a journal about the Supreme Court: “This collegiate tempest in a teapot might serve for the lads of the University to moot; but, surely, was unworthy the solemn adjudication attempted for it.” Note the interesting use of moot: “Archaic -- to argue (a case), especially in a mock court.”

e.g.,

The hyperlink points to an article about Julie Bass of Oak Park, Michigan, who finds herself in a storm in a tea because of petty bureaucrats employed by the city. "Oak Park's Planning and Technology Director Kevin Rulkowski says . . . 'If you look at the dictionary, suitable means common. You can look all throughout the city and you'll never find another vegetable garden that consumes the entire front yard.'" Herr Rulkowski may be correct that no one else in Oak Park has a vegetable garden in her front yard, but he's strictly a Loony Tunes sort of guy if he thinks suitable means common. (All right. Admittedly, if you look long and hard enough through the 70 groups of synonyms for suitable at thesaurus.com, you can find common in groups 26, 46, and 69. But that's hardly the same as finding common as a definition for suitable in a dictionary. Perhaps that should become an entry in the PseudoDictionary. . . . Nah. Not a chance -- not unless we get paid beaucoup bucks for adding it.) †

This is the sort of thing that infuriates me about overpaid "public servants" with too much time on their hands. Now, I might not particularly like seeing a garden in the front yard next door (Painted and treated lumber would help.), but that's not the point. The point concerns what's within code and what isn't. Suppose Ms. Bass had planted extremely expensive flowers and trees in her front yard -- plants too expensive to be common. Would Rulkowski similarly claim they weren't suitable because they weren't common and thus didn't meet code? One suspects he wouldn't. Pity Ms. Bass et al. are likely to be out considerable legal expense because they're dealing with mental midgets. †

Somebody -- anybody -- please buy Kev a good dictionary.

stratactical - Used to describe a deliverable (as in consulting) that strikes the "correct" balance of strategic guidance and tactical detail. Such a deliverable is generally non-occurring in nature.

e.g., R5: How did the MG's Executive Committee like the guidance document? J9: Not at all. Giving them strategic guidance on how to save $8M over three years didn't give them a technical schematic to work from. R5: Sounds like it needed to be more stratactical. J9: Indeed. How was yours received? R5: Well. The 40 pages of nonsense Visios you sent me pertaining to their competitors seemed to lend it the proper blueprint feel to counter-balance the strategic side.
