the almost instant denial of responsibility you may hear from a past or present sexual partner after informing him/her that you just tested positive for a sexually transmitted infection.
The exchlamatory no does not necessarily take the form of a "no;" the only essential element is a denial. Responses such as "I just got tested a month/two weeks/a day ago and got a clean bill of health," "You're lying!" or "I don't have it" also qualify. The term is derived from the words "chlamydia" and "exclamatory."
An alternate name for the walk of shame
, wherein an undergrad youth slink
s home from the residence of a member of the opposite sex after a night out partying. Especially applicable to males after a first successful venture.
"I don't think the name 'walk of shame' is appropriate for me. Frankly, I'd prefer to call it a trail of triumph."
Fraudulently joining up with friends on a "family plan" offered by a cell phone service provider.

A student taking a class on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory, or pass/fail, grading basis. Such a student can get away with putting very little effort into a class.
Yeah, we're all s/uckers. We're a pocket of incompetence in the back of the classroom.
The privilege a law student asks for so that he is not called on in class for the day. A student may give either an excuse or a justification for this request, preferably by email ahead of time, or in person right before class. The term is called "Socratic" immunity because most professors in law school use the Socratic method of teaching, grilling a student with questions for ten minutes of class or more.
Socratic immunity is critical because most law school professors count class participation as at least a small factor in a student's grade.
The new, more genuine, folksier alternative to a teleprompter. Consists of writing notes on the palm of your hand, then consulting them while delivering a speech on national television.
"The telepalmer? I think she did it on purpose. I think she did it on purpose, yeah. Because it’s the exact opposite of reading off the teleprompter with a script written for you with every word in a sentence. Here she’s just taking crib notes on her hand. It makes her look like she can just talk off the cuff and she just jotted down a few couple notes before she went out to give a big long speech."
Super Dimension Fortress, the classification of the ship from the seminal, famous 1980s Japanese anime "Macross." In America, in the anime's "Robotech" adaptation, the acronym was changed to "Super Dimensional Fortress," and the Macross was referred to as "The SDF" frequently.
The bridge of the SDF is staffed by the captain and his team.
