proper noun; muscle & fitness terminology; a new or rarely seen gym member who's sudden appearance has undoubtedly been brought about by a personal resolution to "get in shape."
The Resolutioner is viewed as somewhat of a nuisance by regular gym patrons because their commitment to fitness is often only temporary (usually fading within 2-8 weeks of initial sighting). In the mean time, the Resolutioner succeeds only in crowding up the gym's limited floor space, sweating up the machines, and generally interfering with the workouts of more hardcore gym members.
A Resolutioner may appear at any time, however, they are seen in increasing numbers during the months of December and January thanks to the ever popular tradition of declaring personal resolutions around the start of a new year (see New Year's Resolution).
Resolutioners can most easily be identified by looking for the following: 1) brand new, color coordinated workout apparel 2) sweat bands and/or leather gloves 3) stylish off-the-shelf water bottle 4) bad form and lack of confidence around the machines.
Resolutioners often include: the fat person trying to do crunches 2) the skinny guy struggling to bench almost no weight at all and 3) the chick in front of the mirror waving around those adorable little pink dumbells.
Regular Patron 1: "Hey dude, what are you still doing here? You're usually long gone by now."
Regular Patron 2:"Yeah, I know. I had to wait for some Resolutioner to quit playing around with the Pec Deck."
A person who makes ballsy claims for New Year's resolutions even though you know they won't follow through with any of them.
Joe: I'm gonna quit smoking, eat right and join a gym this year.
Sue: Whatever. You're such a freaking resolutionist.
Hillary Clinton is quite simply the Anti-Christ. She is an evil socialist bitch with a devious power hungry agenda to take control of this great country and become the first female president. Every thing she does is cold hearted and calculated. She supports such absurd policies as universal health care, tax increases for businesses, and being totally against the Iraq War EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS ONE OF THE SENATORS THAT VOTED TO GO TO WAR BACK IN 2003! Now, according to Hillary, the whole war is George Bush's fault. No mention of the at least 15 U.N. Resolutions that Saddam violated leading up to the war, his genocide of the Kurds, and his war with Iran where he used poison gas, and which costs over a million lives. She is a typical leftist Democrat who blames all the woes of this country on the Republican party and most notably, George W. Bush. If something is wrong, it is most likely George W.'s fault, according to Hillary. If it were possible to blame George Bush for 9-11, Hillary would. Hillary is also the only reason that Bill Clinton got in trouble for fucking his interns. If Hillary would put out once and a while he wouldn't have needed to cheat on her. She even started crying on t.v. during the primaries to pander to women voters. Hillary is also a typical Democrat in that when she loses, she complains, and when she wins, she still complains. There is always something to bitch about. If there is a Republican to blame, they must be at fault. Quite simply, if ...more...
Popdada is a subculture of creative people wearing bright colours, DIY clothes and doing culture jamming. Somewhat similar to emo(through the outfits, but rather preferring colours than black) and also to new rave.
Popdada borrows from significance and resolutions offered up by art and popular culture, in order to reformulate these in another context and language, everyday creativity, thus creating a new and unquestionably new way of life introducing expressed creativity all around theirselves.
Jenny blows soap bubbles and wears a glitter dress she made on rooftops, she's a popdada.
In 1847, the United States invaded Mexico. This was the Mexican-American War. About it, Ulysses S. Grant said:"...I do not think there was ever a more wicked war than that waged by the United States on Mexico. I had a horror of the Mexican War, and I have always believed that it was on our part most unjust. The wickedness was not in the way our soldiers conducted it, but in the conduct of our government in declaring war. We had no claim on Mexico. Texas had no claim beyond the Nueces River, and yet we pushed on to the Rio Grande and crossed it. I am always ashamed of my country when I think of that invasion."
Here is a footnoted statement from Wikipedia:'A month before the end of the war, Polk was criticized in a United States House of Representatives amendment to a bill praising Major General Zachary Taylor for "a war unnecessarily and unconstitutionally begun by the President of the United States". This criticism, in which Congressman Abraham Lincoln played an important role with his Spot Resolutions, followed congressional scrutiny of the war's beginnings, including factual challenges to claims made by President Polk.' Footnotes: Congressional Globe, 30th Session (1848) pp.93-95
House Journal, 30th Session (1848) pp.183-184
As a member of the House of Representatives, Abraham Lincoln opposed the Mexican-American War.
Noun: individuals who decide to follow through with their New Year's resolution in full force....until they become lethargic, apathetic, or just plain distraught. Often purchasing brand new attire/equipment from the latest store to fit the part. May even preach to others about their new-found zest for life in the two weeks that they are, in fact, taking part in making their resolution, a success.
"Man, the track is full of resolutionaries this morning...I'll give them two weeks".
A 16-bit console released by NEC Corporation in 1990 that sold 10 million worldwide. It sold better than 32-bit 3DO Interactive Multiplayer (10 million), and 16-bit Neo Geo and 32-bit Atari Jaguar (250,000). It sold only 2.5 million in USA and is an entry level collector's item. The best selling game was Bonk's Adventure which spawned 2 sequels and weren't great. The good games on the system were all SHMUPs like Blazing Lasers, and R-Type. The reason why it looked inferior to Sega Genesis was the 8-bit CPU. It was the first console to use CD format in 1991. CD games include WonderBoy III (platformer), Ys I and II (JRPG) and Street Fighter. Legendary Axe 1/2 were an Alter Beast clones. Neutopia I/II were Zelda NES clones.more...
