obviety - (Rhymes with BOB-vee-uh-tee; n.) A statement which, despite sounding fairly deep, is actually a self-evident banality. [Noun form of "obvious."]

e.g., "Men can never understand being a mother." "Well, men don't have the babies, or any of the parts necessary for child-bearing or baby-feeding, so---" "There's also all the responsibilities and multitasking and---" "So, what you're saying is that men are not women. That's no deep philosophical truth: it's an obviety." "A what?" "An obviety, as in plain as your nose." "So you agree with me?" "Of course I do." "But it's like declaring that dinosaurs were big: we all know it, but what difference does it make?"

occidens - [Rhymes with OX-ih-benz; n.] 1. In full, ala occidens "west wing," the TV show (now a staple on Netflix et al.) 'The West Wing,' a decidedly liberal take on the presidency of one Josiah Bartlett (played delightfully by Martin Sheen). While the liberalism and I don't get along most of the time, I enjoyed the show's first run (when I could find it), and I'm binging through it for the ... fourth? time now. The writing's very good, and the jokes are funny (most of the time). When I'm watching it, or movies like 'The American President' or 'Dave' or the (really) old classic 'Gabriel Over the Whitehouse,' I'm OCCIDENSING; [v.] 2. Watching shows like 'The West Wing,' 'Dave,' 'The American President' or 'Gabriel Over the Whitehouse'---essentially, dramatic alternate political fiction; [adj.] 3. of or pertaining to dramatic alternate political fiction: shows like 'The West Wing,' 'Dave,' 'The American President' and 'Gabriel Over the Whitehouse.'

e.g., "What are you doing?" "I'm occidensing." "What?" "I'm watching ... what's it called? ... Matilda. It's a show about a woman in the presidency who is a tyrannical reactionary, and how she alienates her friends, her family, her party, her ... well, everybody, and finally gets assassinated. It's pretty weird." "Yeah. ... occidensing? you said?" "Yeah, occidensing."

occutard - (ock-you-tard) (noun) An adolescent of any age who loiters with other occutards. An occutard's main goal is to be a general nuisance, as she is totally ignorant of her puppetmasters' (Bill Ayers et al.) socio-Marxist cause.    Occutard characteristics:  * dependent on parents  * opposed to work  * drawn to noise and bright colors  * dangerous in large numbers (docile when solitaire)  * prone to exaggeration in regard to their privileged upbringing  * easy to manipulate (susceptible to cult worship)  * defecates in public places 

e.g., What is an occutard?    Sweet, Sweet Irony: #OWS Decides To No Longer Share Their Own Wealth With Freeloaders Of course, pretty much all of the Occutards in Zuccotti Park are freeloaders, but, the kitchen staff has a problem with some more than others in their communist utopia (via Jammie Wearing Fool) (NY Post) The Occupy Wall Street volunteer kitchen staff launched a “counter” revolution yesterday — because they’re angry about working 18-hour days to provide food for “professional homeless” people and ex-cons masquerading as protesters. Part of it is surely that they are having to work, when they thought everything would be provided for them while they relaxed on a golden couch and were fed grapes. For three days beginning tomorrow, the cooks will serve only brown rice and other spartan grub instead of the usual menu of organic chicken and vegetables, spaghetti bolognese, and roasted beet and sheep’s-milk-cheese salad. They will also provide directions to local soup kitchens for the vagrants, criminals and other freeloaders who have been descending on Zuccotti Park in increasing numbers every day. To show they mean business, the kitchen staff refused to serve any food for two hours yesterday in order to meet with organizers to air their grievances, sources said. As JWF points out, the ex-cons and homeless are using up resources without contributing anything, so, the Occupiers are going to cut them off. The Occupiers surely do not even see the irony in cutting off people who have nothing and are just looking for some help from the Zuccotti Park “government.” But, the ZPG isn’t too happy to share their own largess with the less fortunate. “We need to limit the amount of food we’re putting out” to curb the influx of derelicts, said Rafael Moreno, a kitchen volunteer. Yup, still irony, considering what the Occupiers are demanding. Some arguments broke out as the security team searched tents — but no violence erupted. Security teams? In a communist utopia? Searching tents? Stalin would be proud. This is like Lord Of The Flies on steroids. Child-like Marxists living like the proverbial pigs, though pigs tend to not live in their own “filth”, and are actually rather fussy eaters. They just like mud. And now they’re learning that people are going to try and take advantage of “the government” and get stuff for free because they feel entitled because “the government” is just there to help. The massive amounts of irony cannot be put into words. Crossed at Pirate’s Cove. Follow me on Twitter @WilliamTeach. Please sign the drill now petition.

ockham's tonsure - (Also "Occam's tonsure"; n.) _Entia_non_sunt_delenda_praeter_necessitatem, Latin for "things should not be deleted without need." The counter to Ockham's razor, which reads entia_non_sunt_multiplicanda_praeter_necessitatem_ "things should not be multiplied without need"---the idea being, of course, that hypotheses ought to remain simple until some evidence calls for additional aspects to be added to the explanation. In modern terms, simpler explanations are more likely than complicated ones. Ockham's tonsure is my way of cautioning against over-enthusiastic simplification: sometimes, the simplest answer doesn't cut it. It's rare, but it happens.

e.g., B: "Look, Arnie's porch is covered in newspapers. His mailbox is stuffed. And his lights all go on at exactly 10 p.m.---I think he's gone somewhere." C: "Actually, he was kidnapped by aliens." B: "Don't be ridiculous: Ockham's razor says the simpler explanation is probably the right one." C: "But don't forget Ockham's tonsure: the simple answer isn't always sufficient." B: "Well, what evidence do you have to justify the addition of aliens and kidnapping to his simply being on vacation or something?" C: "Witness testimony. I was there." B: "What? Somebody actually saw an ALIEN drag Arnie off?!" C: "Yeah. Me. I was there: It was Quiznob of Bizzorg." B: "Quiznob. Bizzorg. Right. Are you nuts?! You don't expect me to believe this nonsense, do you?" C: "But it's true! Don't be overly Ockhamous." D: "Hey, guys, There's a note here on the door: 'I have your friend. If you want him back, bring me 800 dachshunds, 50 rhyming greeting cards, and a bucket of your Earth petroleum. On the 10th of your month July.' It's signed 'Quiznob of Bizzorg.'" B: "Holy crap." C: "Told you." B: "Ockham's tonsure, huh?" D: "What's a Quiznob?" C: "Don't you think we should start buying dachshunds? And greeting cards?"
