n. An Iraqi improvised explosive device (IED) that misses its intended target and is not, therefore, officially counted as an incidence of violence towards US Forces. Because maybe it's just how the Iraqis celebrate their wonderful new democracy, and wasn't really meant to hurt anyone.
An IED that doesn't involve US personnel? That's not an act of violence, that's a Freedom Pinata.
n. A one-quart, clear plastic bag into which you place your 100-mL bottles of liquids in order to carry them aboard an airplane. A magical device that somehow prevents you from blowing up a plane with solid explosives, or emptying all your little bottles into one big one. Security theater in action.
You can take away my Fourth Amendment right to be free of illegal search and seizure, but you'll never take away my freedom baggie.
abbrev. "Seventh Day Adventists." A bunch of jew-wannabes. They don't say "Saturday," but call it the "Sabbath," and don't do any work between sundown Friday and sundown Saturday. They don't eat pork either or have sex until they're married, and they run around crying about the end times and how everyone treats them 'cause they're different (duh).
I have to work this Saturday because my SDA coworker can't come into the office and write code, but he can go mountain climbing because that isn't "work." What a fuck.
