A region in the north of Virginia
consisting of Fairfax
, Prince William, Alexandria
, and Falls Church
. It is a largely suburban area. It is home to an unusually high proportion of immigrants
and minorities, particularly Asians
. Because most Northern Virginians either moved to the area recently or are descended from people who did, the region's culture is not primarily Southern as the rest of Virginia is, and it tends to vote liberal
more than the rest of the state. Its economy is heavily influenced by its proximity to Washington D.C.
, and many residents work in the government or technology. These industries have made Northern Virginia is very affluent, and as of 2009, 4 of the top 10 highest-income counties in the U.S. are in Northern Virginia. Lower education in Northern Virginia is some of the best in the country.
Some immature Northern Virginians condescend to Southern Virginians and whine about their tax dollars going to the south. Some immature Southern Virginians complain about how arrogant, bratty, and stupid they like to imagine Northe...
About 97 degrees Fahrenheit. Unlike, say, "hot as hell
" or "scorching hot," this expression is actually fairly precise, since the temperature of one's balls
is carefully regulated by the scrotum
to maintain a high sperm count.
Alice: Man, it is hot as balls out there today.
Bob: Actually, it's about 99 degrees, so it might be "hot as lungs," but balls are slightly cooler.
Alice: ...ooookay, whatever.
Someone raised in the Washington D.C.
metropolitan area, by parents who moved to the area to work in the government or a related field (law, lobbying, defense contractors, etc). The strictest definition would only apply to people living within the Capital Beltway, but more usually it refers to any county the Beltway passes through or encompasses (Washington D.C., Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, Montgomery, and Prince George's County). As military brats
are likely to know an unusual amount about the military, so beltway brats are likely to know an unusual amount about politics and government.
Alice: Charlie kept talking to the teacher about tort reform. How does he know so much about politics?
Bob: Oh, he grew up here in D.C., and his mom works for the Department of Agriculture-- he's a total beltway brat.
The sort of silence you get when someone's fucked.
Alice: Okay, our final project's due tomorrow. Can I see your half?
Bob: ...I didn't do it.
Alan is covered with zits, smells like a used pizza box, and has a hunchback-- I'd definitely rather do Ellen DeGeneres; he's below the Ellen Threshold.
When you come up with a fantastic idea only to be told that it has already been done, you may accuse the person who did it first of pregiarism-- pre-plagiarism.
Alice: Ok, so I had this fantastic idea for a superhero: he's a mutant, and he drains the life force of anyone he touches, so it's a great weapon but it also sucks because--
Bob: Yeah, that's Rogue. From X-Men.
Alice: ARRRRGGH stupid Marvel pregiarized my idea
A piece of work. Noble in reason, infinite in faculties, express and admirable in form and moving, in action like an angel, in apprehension like a god. The beauty of the world, the paragon of animals. A quintessence of dust. In spite of all this, still not particularly delightful.
