Knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through the scientific method and concerned with the physical world and its phenomena.
THAT'S what science is. I don't know where you people are getting the idea that it has anything to do with fascism/communism/whatever.
An "eye for an eye" method of criminal punishment in which the criminal is put to death prematurely. There are many different ways of carrying out the death penalty. The earliest were gas chambers, after that they were replaced by firing squads and the electric chair, and today the lethal injection is the most common one.
Random death penalty fact: Utah is the only state that still executes by firing squad.
The tendency of American tourists visiting foreign countries to completely insult the culture of those countries, almost always accidentally. Many behaviors practiced by "ugly americans" are simply innocent mistakes involving actions that are perfectly acceptable in America, but are shunned in foreign countries. Some universal symptoms of an ugly american is excessive amounts of luggage, overly casual clothes, etc. However, others vary from country to country. For example, in France, you will get your ass kicked if you refer to fries as "freedom fries". They're french fries over there, and they're eaten with a fork. To them, this signifies an overly patriotic American with no respect for other cultures. A far easier mistake to make is, in Australia, the peace/victory sign made by sticking out two middle fingers is the equivalent to saying "up yours" if the palm is facing the person it's directed at.
I could go on and on and on about the different symptoms of Ugly American. My advice to all Americans: Thoroughly research a country before visiting it.
A turn-based military strategy game for the Gameboy Advance. The game has a tile-and grid system, where each tile contains a type of terrain, such as plains, woods, or rivers. Each tile has special properties. Units and building facilities are placed on the map, where armies battle it out. The objective is to either destroy all enemy units or capture the enemy headquarters. The story, or "campaign" mode, pits the 4 countries of Wars World (Orange Star, Blue Moon, Yellow Comet, and Green Earth) to defeat the invading alien Black hole army led by Sturm. One thing that makes this game a lot more fun is a map designer. Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising was later released on the Gameboy Advance in 2003 and included a new unit: the Neotank, an extremely powerful tank. Both games are decsendants of the Japan-only Famicom Wars, Gameboy Wars, and Super Famicom Wars series.
The map designer is the number one reason why Advance Wars 2 is one of my favorite video games of all time.
A game that has one of the oddest plots of all time. It's a fighting game starring Shaq, in which on his way to a basketball game he gets pulled into the "second dimension" to save some old dude's son from an evil mummy known as Sett Ra. He fights various evil guys on the way, including a scary evil catwoman, an Arabian prince wielding 2 swords, and an evil voodoo lady. In story mode, you play as only Shaq, who has a fair arsenal of moves at his disposal to defeat Sett's evil minions. There is also a multiplayer mode, where you can play as Shaq as well as the various monsters he smashes.
Shaq Fu is a run-of-the-mill fighting game with an odd plot. Few have heard of it, and almost no one would if it didn't star Shaquille O' Neal.

A taser is a small handheld device used for shocking. It emits small and relatively harmless amounts of electricity, but still a little painful.
Well, John was being an idiot so I pulled my taser and shocked him.
