Aniconism - Wikipedia

The practice of or belief in the avoiding or shunning of images of divine beings, prophets or other respected religious figures, or in different manifestations, any human beings or living creatures. The term aniconic may be used to describe the absence of graphic representations in a particular belief system, regardless of whether an injunction against them exists. The word itself derives from Greek εικων ‘image’ with the negative prefix an- (Greek privative alpha) and the suffix -ism (Greek -ισμος).

Law French - Wikipedia

The post-positive adjectives in many legal noun phrases in English—Attorney general, fee simple—is a heritage from Law French. Native speakers of French may not understand certain Law French terms not used in modern French or replaced by other terms: for example, the current French word for “mortgage" is hypothèque. Many of the terms of Law French were converted into modern English in the 20th century to make the law more understandable in common-law jurisdictions. However, some key Law French terms remain, including the following:

  • attorney ”appointed” (Old French atorné)
  • culprit Originally cul. prit, abbreviation of Culpable: prest (d’averrer nostre bille), meaning “guilty, ready (to prove our case)”
  • defendant “defending” (French défendant)
  • estoppel Anglo-Norman estoup(p)ail “plug, stopper, bung” prevention of a party from contradicting a position previously taken.
  • force majeure modern French, “superior force” clause in some contracts that frees parties from liability for acts of God
  • jury Anglo-Norman jurée “oath, legal inquiry”
  • laches Anglo-Norman lachesse “slackness, laxness” A court may refuse to hear a case not brought before it after a lengthy period since the right of action arose
  • larceny Anglo-Norman lar(e)cin “theft” theft of personal property
  • mortgage dead pledge (Old French mort gaige)
  • parole ”word” release of prisoners based on giving their word of honour to abide by certain restrictions.
  • plaintiff ”complaining” (from Old French plaintif)

The Girlfriendzone

[T]he word for the pining blame men place on women for their own unrequited feelings, or for how some men completely lose interest in women as people once it’s clear she’s not interested in them sexually. It’s something done by a man who was never interested in anything but a sexual relationship in the first place, and tried to use faux friendship as a way to achieve sexual ends.

Friend zoning, is, in broader terms, something bad that a guy who is not getting laid decides that the woman won’t fuck him is doing. It’s an incredibly self centered and self-pitying way to externalize one’s own mistakes or shortcomings, to blame the complex mystery of fickle human attraction on a woman’s agency, and makes about as much emotional sense as showing up to pick up your dry cleaning at 3 am and becoming so enraged that they’re not open that you throw a brick through the window [emphasis added].

That’s right, I made dinosaur pun Valentines. Available on Etsy for only $10 per set, including envelopes and matching stickers.

I feel some kind of way about “stareodactyl,” but I’ll eat my hat if “diplodokiss” isn’t the most heartwarming thing that doesn’t involve Blue Ivy.

I’d like to think, in any scenario, that Jay and Bey end up married and with child, because love is patient and love is kind, but who knows.

But, as 2013 comes to a close, just consider this for a moment. If there’s no Bey and Jay, there’s no Blue Ivy. And if there’s no Bey and Jay, there’s probably no Kanye and Kim. And if there’s no Kanye and Kim, there’s no Yeezus or Baby Nori.

And if there’s no Bey and Jay, Kanye and Kim, Yeezus and Magna Carta … Holy Grail, Blue Ivy and Nori, Legends of the Summer and Yeezus tours, Barney’s partnerships gone wrong, Jimmy Kimmel rants, or Beyoncé’s Tumblr, did 2013 even really happen?
