PN. Words fail to accurately describe the guitar-playing prowess of John Petrucci. Shredding, as well as slower, more virtuosic playing are second nature to him. He possesses incredible amounts of endurance, as he can play 20+ minute songs without problems. He is currently the excellent lyricist and songwriter for the prog-metal band Dream Theater
. One of the three founding members of Dream Theater
, he founded the band under the name Majesty
in 1985, along with John Myung
and Mike Portnoy
. He is very talented at using minor keys, and writes music which makes your neck hair stand on end from the eerie tone and the pure awesomeness coming through the speakers. 6-or 7-string, it makes no difference, he trumps every other guitarist EVER.
John Petrucci will go down in history as a legendary shredder and virtuoso, and many of his songs might be considered miracles of songwriting and guitar playing. Many prog rockers, myself included, want to play like John Petrucci, meet him, or at least be in his presence, as his talent might spread by osmosis. For some excellent songs, I reccommend In The Name of God, Endless Sacrifice, Sacrificed Sons, Metropolis, and Another Day, to name a few.
V. The act of making a molotov cocktail out of a vehicle by sticking a rag or a lit cigar near the gas lines. This is named for the Clive Cussler novel-turned-movie, Sahara, in which the main characters (Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino) turn their boat into a molotov in order to blow up two pursuing boats. They named it a "Panama" because they first did this in Nicaragua, mistakenly thinking they were in Panama.
N. A truly beautiful isthmus country, with lush rainforests, gorgeous women, and a canal sponsored by the U.S. during Teddy Roosevelt's time in office. One of the few places where you can swim in the Atlantic, hop in a car, and swim in the Pacific before you have a chance to dry.
Dirk: "I think we need to do a Panama!"
Al: "Are you crazy?!"
Rudi: "What's a Panama? When were you ever IN Panama?"
Dirk: "It's a Navy thing! We THOUGHT we were in Panama!"
~the scene goes on~
Claire: "I'm going to Panama this summer."
Claire: "I have 2 tickets. Pack some sunscreen and bring a few extra memory cards for your camera. You're coming too."
Verb. A practical joke which consists of pressing all the elevator buttons as you get off said elevator. This prank works best when the elevator car is loaded with people, and also if the building you're in has at least 8 floors.

The state of mind when sophomores become disgusted with the Freshman Fifteen

A more liberal and accepting mindset among Christians
. In the New Testament of the Bible, focus is directed more towards forgiveness and tolerance rather than the Old Testament themes of absolution and condemnation. Therefore, the Christians who tend not to force Bibles
down people's throats are called New Testament Christians.
