(n.) 1. One who isn't diagnosed with mental retardation, but regardless, he/she WILLFULLY REFUSES 1) to act with basic common sense, 2) to display even the most basic form of intelligence, 3) to use logic and reason, 4) to read (quite useful for learning), 5) to speak in coherent sentences.

2. Synonym for Palin and/or maverick.

v. re-TARD
1. (non-transitive) to decelerate.
2. (transitive) to cause a given object to decelerate.

Note: This word is NOT a noun, therefore anyone who descends to the level of naming an unfortunate person with mental disabilities (actually known as a retardee, a subject of mental retardation) a "retard" (with a mysterious emphasis on the first syllable) can be classified as illiterate, and can be ignored as a result. These people should be ignored anyway as they obviously have no sense of decency or sensitivity. This also applies to people who call non-retardees, "retards", implying that to be a "retard" indicates a status worthy of ridicule.
1. At that point the car had, for some reason, begun to retard.
2. At that point the driver had, for some reason, begun to retard his car.

Note applies to the following:
a) n00b1: Yo, ya know Freddy? That's a hell of a retard!
non-n00b: You are clearly an insensitive and illiterate person worthy only of constant ignoration.
n00b2: Hey yo, stop bein' a retard!
convertedn00b1: He's got a point, you n00b (referring to n00b2)!
convertedn00b2: I submit.
And they all lived happily ever after.

b) n00b: Hah! How can you possibly "retard" someone? It isn't a vorb!
non-n00b1: Yes it is, and it's pronounced "verb".
n00b: Don't yo tell me what to do, yo mofo!
non-n00b2: Go to hell yo mofo!
convertedn00b: I submit.
And they all lived happily ever after.

A word that should be disbanded from society. People often use it out of context and do not understand what the word really means. Mental Retardation is a disability that affects millions of people. It does not mean stupid, dumb, ridiculous, annoying, or any other form of those words.
This person has a mental disability, but that doesn't make them "retarded". They are the same as anyone else.
