Financial Services Authority (UK)
Originally set up too late to protect the public from financial scandals, it now exists to gradually corode financial services in the UK. The favoured mechanism is by writing nonsensical rule books that go round in circles in the language of a 17th century lawlord on steroids. Also, rules that are "Principal Based" so that they can catch you out on anything they haven't written an actual rule for (yet). The FSA is the chocolate beard in the otherwise pristine washroom of British Financial Services. It will take UK Financial Services down the same road as our car industry has gone - India and China.
"Have we got enough money money for our Chrismas Party Tarquin"
"Oh yes - but we'll fine a few more firms first, so we can each go in a new Porsche and flush our wee-wees away with Champagne"

Somewhere between prejudice and ignorance comes 'beerobtivity' . Not to be confused with 'beeroblicity' (near blind drunkenness) is beeroptivity or BOPT
BOPT comes to an individual at that magic and fleeting moment when he/she at last makes sense, but lacks a pencil or pen to write all their thoughts down. Beerobtivic thoughts are typically lost until some majuberous synerobe discovers them independently.
I was halfway through my second pint of beer when I re-discovered affordable string-theory by sheer beerobtivity. Everyone laughed at me until I pulled off my beeroptic strings and my shoes got loose. Now I wear sandals.
|38.||Bush is toast|
A rallying cry for liberals, mostly the moonbats from Democratic Underground, refering to imaginary scandals that they fantasize will bring down the Bush administration. Unfortunately for them, they are doomed to failure because the contrived "scandals" are either debunked, exist wholly within their imagination, or are over issues so petty and insignificant that the Mainstream Media never picks up on them. This leads to great consternation and periods of deep depression in liberals which cause them to lie in bed in a darkened room for days at a time until the next "Bush is toast" imaginary scandal breaks out and the cycle starts anew. The liberal never learns from past mistakes and is doomed to have his/her hopes shot down once again. The phenomena is sometimes compared to the "Peanuts" cartoon wherein Lucy bades Charlie Brown kick the football she is holding, only to snatch it out of the way at the last moment causing Charlie to fall flat. No matter how many times she does it, Charlie always falls for it, never learning. It is thus with liberals and their "Bush is toast" dreams.
Liberal: "Dan Rather has a memo that proves GWB didn't fulfill his duties in the Texas Air National Guard. Bush is toast!"
Note: from the standpoint of a liberal
Usually this word is directly affiliated with the Republican party. The way it is defined today means strict laws that favor the Bible and other older teachings, a group that opposes loose personal freedoms but favors loose economic freedoms. Pretty much, anybody who believes that the greater half of life is the work life.
Conservative can be used to describe liberals as well, because liberals favor loose personal freedoms but strict economic laws.
Here's some food for thought:
Democrats are more likely to be involved in scandals NOT INVOLVED with their jobs. Clinton is an example.
Republicans are more likely to be involved in scandals INSIDE their jobs. Tom DeLay is an example.
Type into Google: 2004 Election by IQ. It's pretty hilarious, and may be hard to swallow at first. Also type in '2004 Election by divorce rate' , '2004 Election by education level' , and anything you may find family or education oriented. Favors democrats, mostly New England where I live. More children are left behind in the Bible Belt than anywhere else in the country. Also, the two places that were attacked on Sept 11 are very heavily democratic, which is ironic when you think about it.
Conservative means something entirely different today than it did thrity years ago
Once the girls hit a certain age they're sick. They Pick on eachother for rediculus things such as the way they dress, the music they listen to, what class they're in and what side of town they live on.

A gay Catholic Priest. The name originates from a combination of recent scandals in the Catholic church and from the wrestling hold known as a nelson.
A half-nelson is when you are trying to wrestle or restrain someone and you put your arm under their arm and then bring it up around to the back of their head and then place your hand on the back of their neck, pushing their head forward.
A full-nelson is the same as a half-nelson, except you use both arms to wrestle/restrain your opponent.
A Father Nelson is when a Catholic Priest tries to sodomize you by using a full-nelson.
Eric married a Catholic woman who wanted him to convert to Catholicism. At first, he was hesitant, but after he met with Father O'Reilly, who introduced him to Father Nelson, he was overjoyed with the prospect of becoming a Catholic.
Now, Eric is always trying to introduce 18 year old choir boys to Father Nelson.
|42.||I Love Lucy|
I Love Lucy is a television sitcom that aired in the 1950s. During that time, it was the most popular American sitcom. It starred comedienne Lucille Ball, her husband Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley. The series ran from October 15, 1951 to May 6, 1957 on CBS (180 episodes, including the "lost" Christmas episode). This show was ranked #2 on TV Guide's top 50 greatest shows of all time in 2002, behind Seinfeld and ahead of The Honeymooners. The program was filmed at Desilu, the production studio jointly owned by Ball and Arnaz.more...
The sitcom was based on a radio show starring Lucille Ball and Richard Denning called My Favorite Husband. Denning was enthusiastic to continue his role as Ball's husband, but Ball wanted her real-life husband, Cuban-born musician Desi Arnaz, to play her onscreen spouse. Studio heads were worried that American audiences would not find such a "mixed marriage" to be believable, and were concerned about Arnaz's heavy Cuban accent. But Ball was adamant, and they were eager to have her in the part. To help sway their decision, Ball and Arnaz put together a vaudeville act featuring his music and her comedy, which was well received in several cities. In the end, CBS agreed, but refused to let Desi Arnaz's role be part of the show's title (as in "Lucy and Ricky"). After lengthy negotiations, Arnaz relented and agreed to "I Love Lucy", reasoning that the "I" would be his part.
Arnaz persuaded Karl Freund, cinematographer of Fritz Lang's Metropol...
