Smug patriotic newsanchorliness. A hidden, invisible but extremely palpable, perceptible Dark Jedi Power possessed mostly by members of the mainstream media, and poked fun at carefully by Stephen Colbert.more...
Gravitas is difficult to define, but you know it when you're seeing it. Defining characteristics: deep, orotund Midwestern broadcast voice; suggestive pauses and stresses on certain words and phrases, such as "terror", "patriotism", "homeland", and "national security"; a piercing gaze from a somewhat lowered head facing camera; a sidelong gaze that says, "America, you can trust me, you should trust me, and if you don't you're probably a liberal sympathizer to terrorists"; neatly cut dark hair, above-average height, and a rugged masculine jaw; and a name like Stone Phillips.
Deceased Canadian ABC World News Tonight anchor Peter Jennings is the only known post-Walter Cronkite mainstream media news personality who used gravitas for ethical purposes. His level of gravitas was the highest since that of Cronkite. No living anchor yet has surpassed it.
Some news anchorwomen possess gravitas, such as Linda Ellerbee, but they are often assumed lesbian or shrill and do not last long, despite their credentials...
1. A character in Soul Calibur 3 who is similar to the characters Charade and EdgeMaster from previous SC games, in that he can use the fighting styles of most of the other characters in the games (chosen randomly by the game).
He is a character who is supposedly one of the strongest warriors alive. He kills an owl that acted as a god's messenger, and as punishment, he was cursed with the head, feet, and tail of an owl. He was forced to live in a deep chamber where time does not pass. He doesn't get older, or get hungry or anything.
To fight him in the game's arcade mode (Tales of Souls), the player must follow a specific path depending on which character he/she is using, without losing a single fight, or winning the 6th match by ringout. If the player defeats him, he/she also gets to fight Night-Terror as the final boss instead of Abyss.
2. The O RLY owl
Siegfried: My life is not for your taking!
Olcadan: O RLY?!?
Medically, little is know of the cause of sleep paralysis. Experienced worldwide and throught history, SP occurs to otherwise normal people at the onset, or the end of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. Simply stated, SP seems to be an experience opposite sleep walking. Rather than your body unconscincely moving mimicing a dream, your conscince mind will be rendered unable to move your body. A subject will suddenly become completely aware of his/her surroundings, but will be unable to move their body or even wake up. Hallucinations and intense fear accompany the experience, as subjects may scence an evil presence that often sits on the subject's chest and interferes with the ability to breathe normally. The physical form of the presence varies from time period and culture, older instances involved witches, or "hags" and many new cases involve aliens. These subjects will experience many of the stereotypical events of an alien abduction, such as paralysis, floating sensation, and auditory hallucinations. The event can last from several seconds, to several minutes, with the subject either falling deeper into sleep, or snaping out and waking. The experience usually leaves the subject confused and disoriented and often, even after waking, the subject believes the event to have been an actual experience. SP is not known to be harmfull, and paralysis has never been know to adversly effect invoulentary muscles such as heart or lungs, although an elevated heart rate may occur from th...more...
A frantic dash, usually from one side of a city to another. Also emergency travel between two countries organised at the last minute to try to prevent something terrible from happening.
Reminiscent of a monkey running on the ground from a predator looking for a safe tree to climb. Arms and legs are usually swinging from side to side and the monkey has a grin of terror on its face.
Monkey runs typically have a success rate of between 30% and 50%.
Sandra suddenly realised that she left the CD-Rom with all the photos in her husbands lap top. If he turned it on the game was up. She decided she would have to do a monkey run to London that night.
LuxDem is an abbreviation for the yaoi pairing of Luxord and Demyx, two characters from the wildly popular Kingdom Hearts video game series.more...
Fans of this pairing tend to either resemble religious fanatics in their devotion to the two or be "torn between LuxDem and XigDem." Initially, this was not a popular pairing, but thanks to the tendency of LuxDem fans to "convert" their friends to LuxDem, it has slowly but surely gathered a following. The fan artist Nire-chan is very worthy of mention in the LuxDem movement, and some of the other more influencial and prominent fan fiction writers in the movement include Laylah (the first known writer of LuxDem) and Fenny Piper. Most LuxDem fans, in addition to sharing a friendly sort of rivalry with XigDem fans, are sworn, bitter, and passionate haters of the Zemyx pairing. LuxDem fans also tend to be older than XigDem and Zemyx fans.
According to its fans, LuxDem is glaringly obvious and as close to canon as a pairing can get in a game with no canon pairings. In sharp contrast to the "What if?" and "OMG KAWAIII!!!" arguments of Zemyx fans, LuxDem fans cite the fact that the Grim Reaper's heart flies to Luxord's hand instead of fading away (with the belief that it is his Heartless) followed by Luxord's apparent disgust and final line ("How could you, Roxas?") as proof. They deduce that if Demyx (who dies before Xigbar, Xaldin, and Luxord) had been in a relationship with Xigba...
In an isolated environment, such as jail or a submarine crew, sexual orientation is disregarded for sexual practicality with three components relevant to incarceration:more...
1]The Control freak,1 rapes,1 to terrify, humiliate, and thus own,2. Like ritual sexual domination in hazing,4 or in punishing a weak link, neither sexual segregation nor orientation determine these acts. When brutal humiliation and maximal terror is the tactic, violence is the payoff, not straight or gay orgasm. A car battery and alligator clamps suit the purpose just a well, though at a remove.
2] A vulnerable party may submit to sexual acts in order to gain protection or favors in a power imbalance that's additionally destructive. (See also the origin of faggot,3.) The victim may be aroused due to stimulation of the prostate, but this is physical rather than consensual. Victims ignorant of this factor may commit suicide from shame. Alternately, grown familiar with the trade, or their self loathing, they continue it on the outside, like Kasper Gutman's gunsel,1+2 in the The Maltese Falcon.
3] A rare close friendship may lead to sexual intimacy between inmates (or team members) contrary to sexual orientation, e...
