An exclamation, which in light of the irreverently popular smash hit film, "Borat" now connotes the justifiable gloating over any sudden victory in life, fortune or career which dismays one's jealous competitors by virtue of its magnitude and/or sheer unexpectedness. It is most effective to exclaim "Great Success!" in the very midst of one's petty and mean-spirited detractors, especially at the precise moment they are forced to acknowledge one's hatefully coveted good fortune.

The radiant bride exclaimed "Great Success!" as she and her handsome groom pushed through the throng of her mean-spirited step family and into the couple's late model Rolls Royce.

Acronym for "boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion". This type of explosion is extremely hazardous and can occur during the rupture of a vessel containing pressurized liquid. When the liquid is water, the explosion is usually called a steam explosion. An alternate, whimsical interpretation of the acronym is "Blast Leveling Everything Very Effectively."

A BLEVE can occur in a vessel that stores a substance under pressure where the stored contents coexist at high pressure in both a liquid and gaseous phase, e.g., liquefied petroleum gas. A BLEVE is possible for this type of container where sudden decompression within the container causes a rapid boiling of the liquid contents, resulting in an explosive overpressure at the point of rupture.

A BLEVE can be prevented in the case of a venting gas cylinder by cooling the cylinder with water or foam, taking special care not to extinguish the flame in the process, until the leak is stopped or the cylinder emptied.

A term of possible Southern US origin connoting a group of half-siblings, each of whom possesses a different babydaddy and on one or more of whom's behalf the mother receives a crazy check. The term posseses no singular form and is distinct in meaning from the similar term, chirren, which is a simple corruption of the standard English, children.
After Suzy won the lotto last year she went Parish Chilton big time and like crazy fast, fried and dyed her hair, got Botox, Lipo and boob implants and then moved with her passle of chirrens into that abandoned mansion of a spec house there in Collyel - you know, the one with the large swimming pool shaped like the Jim Beam bottle. But wouldn't you know it. . . it wasn't long after this that each of those chirrens' babydaddies came out of the woodwork to show sudden interest in the welfare of his respective child. You know, I think one of the jokers even tried to claim that he had paternity over all of the children!

Primarily the Bambi Effect designates the emotional trauma, usually mild and transitory experienced by hunters and trappers when viewing close up a dead or dying and suffering neotenous, i.e., "cute and adorable" animal for whose death and suffering they suddenly acknowledge some responsibility.

Guilt experienced by a hunter as he suddenly identifies with the suffering of an animal which he has killed. The name is a reference to the classic Disney film, Bambi, in which the tragic climax to the story is reached as the protagonist's (Bambi's) mother is killed by hunters.

Secondarily the effect pertains to the reaction of witnesses to scenes of the brutal killing of said neotenous animals, e.g., harp seal pups clubbed by Canadian hunters.
The black limpid pools for eyes of small, helpless harp seal pups connote childlike innocence, and it was the oft repeated images in the mass media of the clubbing of seal pups that caused an outcry in the 1970's to protect the pups from Canadian hunters. Strangely, the continual slaughter of bonobo apes, who are genetically closest to humans or of West African elephants, orders of magnitude more intelligent and consciously aware than any seal pup, never provoked nearly the same amount of public concern and outrage against animal cruelty. This seeming ethical inconsistency is no doubt owing to the differential operation of the Bambi Effect upon witnesses to images of human-caused animal suffering.
