Pronounced: Facebook NO-tification
1. Takes place when one is excited about having one or more facebook notifications but soon finds that they are all irrelevant or unexciting.
NOtifications are: invites to out-of-state parties, options to support causes one does not care about, comments and 'likes' from strangers, when a friend request is accepted, invites to lost cell phone events where you have no intention of sharing your number.
2. A NOtification can also take place when one receives a notification for a wall-post, photo comment (etc.) that no longer exists.
3. When facebook will not recognize that a notification has already been checked, resulting in one believing they have a new notification when it is in fact old.
Jill: "If I get one more facebook (No)tification about Courtney's graduation party, I'm going to leave the event."
Vicky: "Every time I log in to I think I have a new notification but it's always the same facebook (No)tification about that creep commenting on my profile picture."
Jill: "I totally thought that cute guy Jack wrote on my wall, but there's nothing there."
Vicky: "That's called a facebook (NO)tification"

Used when quoting someone directly (usually in newspapers) and placed after the person being quoted makes a spelling error. The journalist/writer inserts (sic) to inform the reader that they aware of the spelling error but left it that way as to keep the quote verbatim
This is usually used for written quotes ie. letters

Originating in the game of tag, no backsies is a maneuver in which a player that is "it" cannot be tagged back immediately following the tagging of another player.
No backsies can further be extended into the real world, where people use "no backsies" as a means to avoid doing a task.
To invoke the rule, one must simply say "no backsies" before the item or action in question is returned to its original source.
Example 1: Alice, Bob, and Corey are playing tag, and Alice is "it." Alice proceeds to tag Bob, making him "it." Bob turns around and tags Alice right back. Alice neglected to say "no backsies," and is now "it" again. Bob would not make the same mistake. As his hand touches Alice's shoulder, he screams "no backsies." He then proceeds to punch her in the face for good measure. Bob cannot be tagged "it" until Corey has been tagged. Which won't happen. Alice is in the hospital.
Example 2: Alex and Daniel are arguing over whom has to put away all the toys back into the chest. Their mother comes in to threaten them that if a certain thing isn't put away within the next minute, they would both get in trouble. Obeying the unwritten rule that the last one to touch something must put it away, both proceed to argue over who actually touched it last. Daniel picks it up and throws it at Alex, hitting him in the face, and calls out "no backsies." Alex, now bruised from the padlock that their mother wanted put away, now has no option but to return the heavy metal object back to the toy chest.
no longer 'thrifty' in Minneapolis, anyway
