Photophobia is a fear of, or adverse physical or psychological reaction to light. Whether from rapid change of light intensity, or sudden burst of bright light, as from a camera flash. Not to be confused with heliophobia, which is a fear of the Sun.
When we went to the laser light show, Jon must've got a case of photophobia. He puked and had a seizure.
(n) - An ABC bath, (also known as a whore's bath) is a hurried washing of the Armpits, Butt, and Crotch only, and serves to just wash off the stink until you can take a real bath or shower.
I was running late for work and didn't shower last night, so I had to take an ABC bath this morning.
The sudden, uncomfortable, and uncontrollably audible rumble emanating from the abdominal region, usually signaling the imminence of a trip to the toilet. Can be disturbing to others, and very embarrassing for the afflicted party. Not to be confused with gut storm, which usually follows or accompanies gut thunder.
All through the presentation, someone in the back row had a mad case of gut thunder and made it difficult for anyone else to enjoy the show.
- Angular momentum is a physics term used to describe the relationship between the center of mass and the speed of rotation of any object. A rotating object with a wide center of mass will increase the speed of rotation when the center of mass is narrowed. Think of a figure skater who spins with her arms outward, and then pulls her arms in toward her body to change her center of mass to increase her spin speed. This works on the exact same principle.
By changing her angular momentum, Nancy was able to pull off some amazing spinning moves on the ice, and win the competition in spite of being pummeled in the kneecaps by one of Tonya's thugs.
(DUH-lee) - Noun - A Dullie is a Sharpie pen that has been used so much that the tip is all frazzled and will not write a smooth or fine line.
I've had this same Sharpie for almost 2 years, and I think it would now officially qualify as a Dullie.
A delicious stew originating from the coastal region of South Carolina, in an old settlement called Frogmore. The main ingredients are shrimp, smoked sausage, corn on the cob, and potatoes, but there are several delectable variations that might include other ingredients such as onions, carrots, or whatever you choose to throw in the pot. No, there is no frog involved. The name is from the place in which it was invented.
To make this, you need a very large pot, and preferably a gas cooker. You bring the water to a boil, and put your potatoes, smoked sausage, corn on the cob, and any other vegetables you care to add. When the water returns to a boil, add some Old Bay Seasoning, or a bag of Zatarains Crab Boil. It's okay if the bag bursts, because it only distributes the peppercorns and seasonings better and coats your veggies. When you are satisfied that the potatoes and corn are done, then add a bunch of unpeeled jumbo shrimp, and allow to boil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the shrimp are done. Turn off the heat, and strain all the water off the stew. It's best if you have prepared a surface to dump the contents into, so that the water can strain off. The idea is to have the food on display so everyone can serve themselves and take what they want. If you haven't tried this stew, then you surely must add it to your bucket list. It's absolutely delicious, and will feed a large group of people. Great for parties!
I tried some Frogmore Stew for the first time at a family reunion 20 years ago, and I have made it at least once a year, every year since. It's a little bit costly, but well worth the money.
A usually silent emission of gas when endeavoring the weekly shopping rounds. One can be both a victim, or a perpetrator of a mart fart. The presence of multiple people in the shopping mart environment, makes it the ideal place to fart and not be the obvious farter.
Ralph was walking down the cereal aisle, and walked right into a mart fart cloud. Since no one was on the aisle but him, it must've seeped through the boxes from the juice aisle.
