kynopsychokinesis - The belief that, if you stare lovingly up at a kitchen bench for long enough, you can induce food to levitate from its surface and drop onto the floor.

e.g., Rover's infinite patience stems from his innate belief in kynopsychokinesis ... or perhaps the realisation that a passing human will sometimes take pity.

pink job - (n.) Woman's work [from the pink~blue = boy~girl color assignments] (coined by my wife, believe it or not, who is actually the main breadwinner in our family. I think it's because women who do kitchen work tend to have things organized in a particular way, a way which their men tend to mess up. At least, I tend to mess them up, and my wife has kitchen labor down to a hyperefficient science.) I assume, therefore, that there are also "blue jobs," although I'm not sure what those would be.

e.g., "Scott," says my wife, as I helpfully begin to unload the dishwasher, "leave that alone; it's a pink job."

nubedolia - (new-buh-DOUGH-lee-ah; n.) Seeing shapes in clouds. [from nube "cloud" + eidōlon εἴδωλον "image"; similar to the term pareidolia, the name of the phenomenon of seeing patterns in random data.]

e.g., The famous nubedolia Peanuts cartoon, in which Lucy, her little brother Linus, and Charlie Brown talk about shapes in the clouds as they lay upon Charlie Brown's pitcher's mound. The dialogue runs as follows: LUCY: "Aren't the clouds beautiful? They look like big balls of cotton. I could just lie here all day and watch them drift by. If you use your imagination, you can see lots of things in the cloud's formations. What do you think you see, Linus?" LINUS: "Well, those clouds up there look to me look like the map of the British Honduras on the Caribbean. [points up] That cloud up there looks a little like the profile of Thomas Eakins, the famous painter and sculptor. And that group of clouds over there... [points] ...gives me the impression of the Stoning of Stephen. I can see the Apostle Paul standing there to one side." LUCY: "Uh huh. That's very good. What do you see in the clouds, Charlie Brown?" CHARLIE BROWN: "Well... I was going to say I saw a duckie and a horsie, but I changed my mind."

portical - (POR-tic-al; n.) 1. a. The space needed for the opening and closing of a door, rendering it essentially useless; b. An area, square, indentation, box, addition, or whatever on a house plan, added to a room to give it room for the sweep of a door without depriving the room of the space needed for the door. 2. a.

mystereality - The part of reality that is impossible to understand, such bizarre coincidences, freak stories of survival amid destruction, déjà vu, and dreams, etc.

e.g., The birds on the wires overhead were positioned to exactly represent the notes of a Mozart opera, which is strange enough, but that piece was playing through an open window. None of the passersby shared my appreciation of the mystereality.

moe's art - The state of the world's Great Painting, including Sculpture, Music, etc. ("Mozart") now degraded by incompetent self-styled "artists." These charlatans, in an attempt to produce something (anything?) new and different in Art, enter into off-the-page projects that invariably create gimmickry of little artistic value ("Moe's Art").

e.g., You may not believe it, but there is actually a Southern "artist" who uses discarded chewing gum as his chosen medium. He roams the urban environment, searching for selected wads of pre-chewed gum that he picks up, applies to canvas, and offers the finished product as "contemporary art." So here's the challenge. Is this young man justifiably investing months and years in a worthwhile art project, or is he avoiding an honest day job by pursuing something that is bound to be Moe's Art? It's a question we humbly ask you to chew on!

psephology - "The study of elections and election polling, usually a subfield of sociology."

scarce as hen's teeth - "Also, scarcer than hen's teeth. Exceptionally rare, as in: 'On a rainy night, taxis are as scarce as hen's teeth.' Since hens have no teeth, this term in effect says that something is so scarce as to be nonexistent. [Mid-1800s ]"

e.g., An honest politician? Isn't that an oxymoron? I'd say they're at best scarce as hen's teeth. | January 24, 2010: "Once again [she] has flabbergasted me, saying if she were well she'd want to adopt a couple of the Haitian orphans. Impractical even if her health were good, no doubt, but it shows what she is at her core. How right she is to say I'm more lucky than deserving to get her. More than lucky.

amirite -

Am I right? Spelled the way it usually sounds. From Evan Morris, creator of The Word Detective -- who takes no credit for inventing the word, just the first example.

"OK, so why was September such a bad month? I’m not really up for explaining what happened yet, but the bottom line (literally) is that our income, already anemic due to my disability [multiple sclerosis], has abruptly been cut by about 70%. We were strapped before; now we’re totally screwed."

Mr Morris could stand a few more subscribers, so I'm happy to give him a good word. He's given me tons of them over the years. His subscribe page is so well-written, it's hard to resist signing up.

blockbusting - "Blockbusting was a business practice of U.S. real estate agents and building developers meant to encourage white property owners to sell their houses at a loss, by implying that racial minorities were moving into their previously racially segregated neighborhood, thus depressing real estate property values. Blockbusting became possible after the legislative and judicial dismantling of legally protected racially segregated real estate practices after World War II, but by the 1980s it largely disappeared as a business practice after changes in law and the real estate market."

e.g., "With blockbusting, real estate companies legally profited from the arbitrage (the difference between the discounted price paid to frightened white sellers and the artificially high price paid by black buyers), and from the commissions resulting from increased real estate sales, and from their higher than market financing of said house sales to black Americans."

chicken**** - Chickenshit, chickenblank, chickenbleep. Take your pick. So far no authoritative news source has reported anything other than chicken**** in the current brouhaha regarding what was recently said about the Israeli Head of State, Benjamin Netanyahu. Nor has the name of the "oa official" been revealed. One sure wonders. Inquiring minds want to know -- but only conservative or Republican minds. Democrats and liberals could care less.

"quarantine-like" - An obfuscation of the legal term used by the CDC definition of the word quarantine: not quarantined. {ED. Sort of like AT&T's contracting with customers for "unlimited" data transfers and then using throttling to limit the amount of data transferred. Or great-grandfather's thinking he was signing up for unlimited sex with great-grandmother when they got married. Even in the days before women's liberation, that was never going to happen.

take the mickey - Michael Quinion Q From Lisa Russell-Pinson: While I was an exchange student in England, I heard the phrase to take the Mickey, meaning ‘to tease’. Do you know where this expression comes from? Does it have something to do with disdain for the Irish? Is it a euphemism for to take the piss? A It is, yes. It dates from at least the 1930s in various forms; the oldest version recorded in print, from 1935, is to take the mike out of, as in this from a book with the title Cockney Cavalcade: “He wouldn’t let Pancake ‘take the mike’ out of him”. It’s said to have its origin in the rhyming slang to take the mickey bliss, that means to take the piss. Mickey as a diminutive form of Michael has been common for many years, but how it got together with “bliss” is unknown, so we’ve no idea whether it is a reference to an Irish Mick. As the form first recorded is already elliptical, either the rhyming slang is actually older than the 1930s or some other source has to be looked for. In the 1950s a mock-genteel version to extract the Michael became briefly fashionable.

felo de se - Wikipedia: "Latin for 'felon of himself,' is an archaic legal term meaning suicide. In early English common law, an adult who committed suicide was literally a felon, and the crime was punishable by forfeiture of property to the king and what was considered a shameful burial -- typically with a stake through his heart and with a burial at a crossroad. Burials for felo de se typically took place at night, with no mourners or clergy present, and the location was often kept a secret by the authorities." | Suicide. | "A person who commits suicide or who dies from the effects of having committed an unlawful malicious act, an act of deliberate self-destruction." | "A person who commits suicide or commits an unlawful malicious act resulting in his or her own death, the act of suicide."

e.g., "With all respect for those by whom this opinion has been professed, I am constrained to regard it as utterly untenable, as palpably inconsistent, and as presenting in argument a complete felo de se." | "In denying the right they usurp, of exclusively explaining the Constitution, I go further than you do, if I understand rightly your quotation from the Federalist of an opinion that 'the Judiciary is the last resort in relation to the other departments of the Government, but not in relation to the rights of the parties to the compact under which the Judiciary is derived.' If this opinion be sound, then indeed is our Constitution a complete felo de se. For intending to establish three departments, coordinate and independent, that they might check and balance one another, it has given, according to this opinion, to one of them alone the right to prescribe rules for the government of the others, and to that one, too, which is unelected by, and independent of, the nation."

attroopment - "A disorderly or tumultuous crowd." French: attroupement = crowd, mob.

e.g., "The great lesson which the reigns of the Byzantine princes are adapted to teach and to enforce, is the import- ance of a total abstinence in the magistrate from theo- logical interference and dogmatism. Let him strictly re- spect the political equality of religious sects, and not unlock the gates of advancement to the select or the alternate favourites of controversy. Whatever implies in the magistrate an opinion ought to be shunned as a badge of partiality and a harbinger of injustice. For want of this precaution the Constantinopolitan crown became the football of patriarchs and priests, and was tossed to new dynasties and upstarts, not for the imperial virtues of military excellence or legislative wisdom, but for preaching to seditious attroopments about the frac- tions of the Trinity, or headingthe statuaries in riots of the iconoclasts. The emperors who lent an ear to the alarms and apprehensions of their clergy became eventually the puppets of their patriarchs, and sullied their hands in the innocent blood of the zealous but ignorant pupils of fanaticism. Their empire weakened by division, their sway reviled by the persecuted with hereditary obstinacy of discontent, the intolerant sovereigns have all descended with unfavourable tinges to posterity, and miss their na- tural chance for a lenient civility of estimate. A real feebleness of mind is however implied in the magistrate's anxiety about symbolic formulas ; so true is the obser- vation of an historian of our own times, religiosa dissi- dia mx unquam nisi sub imbecili imperio floruisse depre- hendes." | "Calmly then Herman replied, but in words of a serious import: Whether I acted aright, Sir, I know not; I follow'd an impulse Such as my own heart gave me, as I shall proceed to inform you.
