LenHazell53 comments on Sep 26, 2019:
No 4 Personally I find the way the British and American media have treated Greta Thunberg despicable. In and for standing up to Trump she has been ridiculed, had her private medical records put on public display, had her parents vilified as unfit and been generally abused for speaking the truth and make the establishment "uncomfortable". To her credit this has not yet stopped her and the anger and fear she has inspired in so called adult politicians is palpable. However I fear for her and her family people the like of presidents, Crown Princes and Prime Ministers do not enjoy being shamed and have notoriously long memories.
QUANGO.
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 26, 2019:
Quango is not actually an acronym, since the QU is the first two letter of the quasi. The word was adopted from a Vietnamese model and given a British meaning since the Vietnam war was still in close living memory and qu'ản go (phonetic) is simply the Vietnamese word for management or management commitee and is also why the word is HATED in the USA and is often replaced with the less idiosyncratic "Qualgo" ( 'quasi-autonomous local government organisation').
oxymoron--figure of speech that juxtaposes things that are contradictory--such as "a good death"
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 26, 2019:
A good death is a paradox not an Oxymoron, this is because good can only be presupposed to be positive by definition and death is not normally presumed a positive outcome, therefore a good death is paradoxical but perfectly possible, but good is not necessarily in conflict with or opposite to death but can have a relative meaning. "A living death" however is an an oxymoron because the noun and the verb are possibly equivatory, one set of definitions producing an impossible situation that can none the less have a metaphorical or reasonable meaning if the words are given their legitimate alternate definitions. Other Oxymoron examples are Good at being bad A deafening silence Virtual reality Pretty unattractive Civil Unrest Poor little rich girl Other Paradox examples are Fresh Cheese A small elephant A big mouse A head butt You can however have a presumed Oxymoron that can be either. This is basically a joke that relies on presupersision examples are Government organisation Honest politician Vegetarian steaks A modest actor A lead Balloon Microsoft works
kibosh--verb--decisively end or reject something, "put the kibosh on it"
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 26, 2019:
In the North of England putting the kibosh on something is to sabotage it. Since the word Kibsh pronounced Kibosh is Arabic for a Ram (male sheep) it is possible that the trick Jacob played on his father in law in the Bible and the Koran of scarring Rams during tupping to create blemished lambs that he could claim as his own is perhaps the origin of the word.

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 25, 2019:
In the UK there is an expression "Lord Muck" used to describe people who think themselves more important than the social class they were born in to, or an entitled person who shows no gratitude. The phrase dates from the Dickensian era, perhaps a little earlier. Muck being farming slang for animal droppings used as fertilizer. However "Lord High Muck-a-Muck" is found in the Indiana County Gazette in 1891 combining the two expressions and bringing in to line the definitions.

Ashera worship was still going on in Nineveh at the time of Jeremiah and Jonah as both preached against worship of her, though in earlier times she had been the consort of YHWH and was a fertility godess, praised in the form of a long wooden phallic poles, that have been consistently discovered for decades despite the efforts of generations of male "holy" men to destroy them all.

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 25, 2019:
as has been pointed out the word seems to have no origin and appeared in the late 19th century. However it does seem to be a contraction of the Latin Copa (meaning Landlord, host or cup) and Acetum (meaning Soured or Vinegar) from which can be inferred "seasoned to taste" or "professionally made to taste better" which does fit with given meaning.

If it is so what is to stop me from demanding non discrimination laws on the basis of political affiliation, allegiance to foot ball clubs, tattoos, and preference in food stuffs? You want to make new laws about discrimination then do it for recognized actual prejudices, such as height, red hair, facial disfigurement etc.

What a bullshit apologetic article. These guys like all of their ilk are shyster bunko booth charlatans and dream peddlers, they exploit the weak and desperate and steal from the gullible. I would lay money that each of them was about to exposed for some impropriety or another and took the cowards way out, or was murdered by an angry relative with the death made to look like suicide for the preservation of the reputation of the church. These men and it is mostly men have been riding the gravy train for centuries and the world is finally getting wise to them. Good riddance to human fith and scum and the best I can say is that if even one of them took his own life out of a sense of guilt and remorse then that was probably the only decent thing they ever did in their misbegotten waste of a life.

I was raised to believe the catholic church was the great abomination by a Fanatical Salvation army mother who did not even like me associating with Catholic children. Yet exposed me from a young age to pictures of a broken and bloody Christ, graphic representations of Hell and the devil, told me stories of the torturous horrors that befell Satan worshipers honestly believing the night terrors, bad dreams and nervous disposition she was instilling to a four year old would save my soul for her god. The more I read of this sort of thing, catholic and protestant the more I become assured **Christianity is a death cult,** filled with blood worship, ritual cannibalism and monstrous mental abuse and sacred lies (That's before you get to the doctrinal physical abuse and the not so doctrinal sexual abuse.)

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 21, 2019:
Throughout history the only times that there are "Great Spiritual Awakenings" are in period of time when people are terrified, feel helpless and are so desperate they turn to god and start begging for forgiveness for they know not what. Unfortunately therefore the first sign of a Great Spiritual Awakening is the religitard morons start blaming the sinners, the heretics, the misbelievers and the disbelievers for angering their sky daddy and start culling them in the most horrific ways imaginable to turn away the wrath of their loving god. These fuckwits are so evil, exploitative, manipulative and amoral they make me want to throw up in shame at the barbarism of it all.

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 20, 2019:
There was the reverse problem last year in Hyde Park in London. Since it's opening about 200 years ago Hyde Park has had a public area known as Speakers corner where anyone can talk or preach about anything. However over time the corner has spread out and three years back there was a bi-law passed limiting Speaking, preaching, public prayer and proselyting back to the original area, for the comfort and convenience of all. However a local mosque took to publicly praying toward Mecca in the park. A 60 year old local woman (I can't recall her name right now Amy something I think) called the police and demanded they enforce the law. The Police refused and told her she would be arrested for inciting hatred if she did not leave at once, (when pushed the sergeant admitted to her moving them on would possibly have cause a riot or revenge attacks on the park). The Woman did and posted a video of the encounter on You Tube, the next day she was arrested for inciting race hatred, held in custody for a day and then released with a warning. The Mosque were told they could no longer pray in the park UNLESS they asked permission for an exception in future which London Mayor Sadiq Khan was happy to grant. This being an available option why did they not simply do this anyway. Apparently the Salvation army do this twice a year to play brass band music, which in my opinion is even worse being a LOT louder. EDIT I have tried to find the name of the woman but all You Tube Video's have been blocked her account has been suspended etc. So Sorry

That was pretty common at the C of E church I attended for a while. One Evangelical meeting I went to with a girl I was trying to impress had a Pastor who was fond of declaring that *"When that collection bag comes back I don't want to hear no chink, I want to hear it RUSSELL"* but the worst of all were the Mormons who made you fill in an offertory form, declaring the amount you were giving and signing it to promise it was ten percent of your gross income. Once a year you received a statement of tithing and and if it was not enough (in their opinion) a summons to the bishops office to explain why you were apparently on such a low wage or else were robbing god.

It makes prophets of it's politicians and justifies acts of war as the works of god and turns soldier not even old enough to fully comprehend what they are doing in to martyrs. This is why separation of church and state is so vital a principle to retain at almost any cost.

Reminds me of the story of Moses coming upon the Lord sitting weeping. Moses asks god what is wrong and he tells him.

Moses ponders for a moment and then asks "Lord, how much are you charging for these things?" God shrugs and tells him "Moses they are free" "I'll take Ten" says Moses.
Probably not that uncommon, but apt.
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 15, 2019:
This word has a fascinating etymology. From the middle ages up the early years of the twentieth century quack medicine peddlers often toured town to town selling nostrums and remedies claiming them to be cure alls. Often they had traveling with them an assistant who would claim to be a beneficiary of the "Physician's" elixir who would claim that not only had the medicine cured them of pox or plague or whatever, but that it had now rendered them invulnerable to harm. To this end and by way of demonstration the man or woman would allow themselves to be bitten by a snake (a none venomous one or one with the venom sack removed) or more often than not would eat a poisonous toad (usually a frog or other none poisonous substitute that they would simply hold in there throat, hence the expression "frog in your throat" for a lost voice). These assistants would bang on relentlessly about how wonderful the medicine was and how great the "doctor" was. IN time and during prosecutions these charlatans accomplices were often referred to as "Toad eaters" or "Toad e's" for short. Soon a Toady became a slang word for a purveyor of false praise and insincere flattery. Toad itself is a corruption of the German Kröte an onomatopoeic word that mimics the croak of a toad

LenHazell53 comments on Sep 13, 2019:
Religion is tempting, it allows for an abnegation of thought and responsibility, it provides rules and standards without the requirement of moral consideration needing only obedience. Religion provides easy answers for everything you ever worried about without the need for education. It gives you a support network, a book of guidance, a convenient enemy to blame when things go wrong and the promise of an eternities worth of chocolate and niceness after you don't "really" die. It turns life in to a cross between reality TV and Sesame street and will kiss better every booboo (or at least tells you it will) and makes you forever a grateful child with the big sky daddy to watch over you for ever and ever. All sounds pretty tempting until they turn on you like a rabid dog for daring to to ask questions or announcing you might just be a bit different and need acceptance.
I am having trouble with posting on here.

Agnosticism or atheism is either the beginning or the end, which ever you decide, or both if needs be. It is freedom from religion, and or god(s) the end of a struggle, the end of oppressive nonsense, it is the beginning of a realistic out look or the beginning of a whole new purpose in life, or the beginning of a life of lies and secrets. It's up to you, your life, your choice.

The west is dancing and twirling in to totalitarianism with a big silly grin on its face, looking forward to a world were, in exchange for on demand sports, mindless TV and a funny clown in power, they may never have to take responsibility for any part of their own life ever again and can spend 70 years dreaming the consumerist dream before an eternity of white middle class cloud sitting.

If used in the same context as Irish American or Italian American, simply to indicated ancestry and heritage I see nothing wrong with it.

I find most steamed or baked fish goes well with a nice home made coleslaw. I love Basa too, I always a have fillets in the freezer in case I can't get fresh.
Happy Palindrome week.

I was once bleeped in the IMDB message boards (may they rest in peace) for saying I was going on a canal boating holiday C-anal apparently contains a forbidden word 😃 Faggot is a very useful word, a bundle of sticks for starting a fire is a faggot, an offal and bread crumb patty is a faggott, a disagreeable old woman is a faggot and a contraction of the first meaning a fag is a cigarette. The origin of the American idiom is a charming play on the bundle of sticks meaning, as homosexuals were seen as something to be burned..how charming.😒😡😣
paraskavedekatriaphobia From Greek Παρασκευή (Paraskeví, “Friday” ) + ...
LenHazell53 comments on Sep 10, 2019:
There are two accept explanations for the Friday the 13th thing One as mentioned else where in this thread is the extirpation of the Knights Templar on Friday 13th October 1307 the other is that the last super took place on a Friday the thirteenth day of the month of Tishrei and there were thirteen people present. However others say that with Friday being named in honour of Frea, wife of Odin the only day to be named for a woman makes it an unlucky day and 13 being the first unnatural number (12 constellations of the Zodiac, twelve months in a year etc 13 breaks the rule) and for being the first two digit prime number made up of the first two prime numbers 1 &3) and for being the day half way between a new and a full moon make Friday 13th a doubly unlucky day. another possibility is that δέκατος τρίτος (13th) phonetically contains the names of Katos/Kratos the god of war and Trito/Triton the god of the sea, combining this with a day named after the goddess of of the domestic home Frea may have had early translators of the bible and theologians clutching their Rosaries and thinking the day Friday the 13th invited bad luck and warfare in the home and at sea?
