A subject within mathematics usually taught in final years of high school that's overused by the media, as of 2008, to describe any circumstance where various decisions would result in various outcomes (which is true for any decision simple or complex).
Most often used in the phrase "....the calculus of..."

|16.||Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii|
Pretty much the most ridiculous name ever given to a child, or at least given to a nine-year-old child from New Zealand. A judge ordered the parents to change it so that the poor girl wouldn't have to die a lonely old spinster because nobody wants to touch a girl named Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii. That's assuming she even lives that long and isn't brutally beaten to death before sixth grade. In the end the parents lost custody of her, a relatively fitting reward.
Had they been Chinese they would've been shot on sight, little girl included, so they're lucky in that respect.
"Oh my god, what a beautiful baby we have. She's so pure! What the hell do we name it?"
"How about Talula? I saw it on a train station wall."
"That's retarded! What, are you high?"
"Oh, good. I was thinking we should name her something with grit and integrity, something like Does The Hula From Hawaii. Our baby's gonna be big, so it needs a big name with at least one state, one article, and definitely one verb."
"Babe, how about we mix the names and call it Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii?"
"That's completely fucking asinine! I love it, I love you!"
"Gimme that birth certificate! Is there a "y" in Hawaii?"
Verb. "to mosby someone". Telling someone (usually on your first date) that you love them in order to freak them out and deter them from having a further relationship with you.
Originates from the show How I Met Your Mother.
Robin: "I found out Barney loves me, what am I gonna do? It's gonna break his heart when I tell him I don't love him back."
Marshall: "Well, there's an option. High risk but high reward. You could mosby him."
Lily: "Oh no, she couldn't mosby him."
Marshal: "She could MOSBY THE CRAP OUT OF HIM."
Undergraduate student at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Noted especially for painful ignorance of anything Buddhist including the Four Noble Truths, The Dharma, loving kindness, etc. This is despite attending a Buddhist-inspired, contemplative school. Narotards do, however, display a remarkable knowledge of and enthusiasm for recreational drugs including alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, mescaline, mushrooms, benzodiazepenes, and a variety of opiates. While not acutely intoxicated the Narotard will suffer typical withdrawal symptoms and create interpersonal drama in an attempt to stimulate his reward system.
The Narotard came to work stressed, withdrawing, sick, miserable. He was in a blackout the night before, his fourth of the week, and injured himself. Now all he wanted was to 1) get high or 2) start a fight to distract himself from his pain.
It’s a behaviour commonly seen manifesting in medium to low ranking social acquaintances, the subject displays an almost instant but thankfully temporary improvement in social skills.
They idolise their adversaries and practice the art of mockery, they often size up males once thought to be untouchable or someone to respect and engage in verbal battle. Some times higher ranking members of the social elite begin to accept this change and reward the individual for their self proclaimed promotion.
Thankfully this spell of success is always short lived and the acquaintance is normally physically inept to prevent the decent back to their natural order.
Generic High Ranker: Anyone heard from Splenum today?
Generic Low Level Acquaintance: I’m here I’m just sick of your shit!
Generic High Ranker: Ooooooooh! Get back where you belong we'll have none of that "Splenitude Complex" in this collective thank you!
The acknowledgement of a colleague's job well done. It was first invented by Enda McKenna in 1947 in his magnum opus on "Motivation of Female Staff in the Male Dominated Workplace". Its purpose was to recognise the added value brought to the business world by women after the Second World War; such as round-the-clock provision of biscuits, coffee and sexual favours. More recently, affirmations have become a desired method of motivation by both sexes. Traditionally, affirmation is delivered by a firm, open-handed pat to the posterior. However, there are many variations; such as the "Snap-To" where a short, sharp delivery results in surprise, awe and a warm after glow. Softer versions are the "Double" and "Triple" pats where two or three affirmations are delivered in quick succession to confirm the high level of performance currently being delivered. The third and rarely used version is the "Spank and Linger". This is when the affirmation is singular but contact is maintained, conveying the message of a job well done, worthy of additional "rewards".
Winston: Did you see that annual report that Miss Wells drew up?
Charles: Yes... jolly good for a woman. Perhaps an affirmation is deserved?
Winston: Excellent idea, a Spank and Linger I think.
Charles: Here she comes now.
Miss Wells: Oooh!
Winston: Good report. See me after work!
Chocolate filled Twinkie, the subordination of a "hot ass supafly white bread mama" engaging in sexual intercourse with a burnt piece of whole wheat bread. The ultimate Black and White cookie. Some may say this is an abomination, however they have not seen the epicness of this original remix of the universally known story of Adam and Eve. In this case, Adam is now substituted with one of Indian decent, including Aatish, or Abhijat.
Such risky activities do require protection, which can be provided by a local Indian Thrift Shop. Flavors include curry, steamed vegetable and chicken kabob. Don't forget the spices!!
