A theoretical felony. The federally punishable act of thinking about unlawful acts, thinking of committing them, or having thoughts contrary to the will of the established government or relevant legal or social paradigm. An arrestable offense regardless of whether or not action has been taken towards the thought, even lacking traditional evidence of any kind of wrongdoing.

This idea is prevalent in the dystopian novel "1984," by british author George Orwell.
I'm glad Bush is out of office. I was sure I was going to get sent to Guantanomo for Thought Crimes.

In Theatre, the long line of handles and ropes, typically Stage Right or Left in the Upstage wingspace of a Theatre. The ropes- "purchase lines," control the up and down travel of scenery, lights, effects and equipment suspended in the air by a system of pulleys, cables, pipes, and counterweights.
This is where the Techies can be found during a Run Week, when on standby.
Actor1:"Who's that guy in all black dancing like a stripper on those big rope-things?"
Actor2:"The Techie? That's Seth. He operates the Fly Rail."
