the technique for communication using signs and symbols.
Sign language is a part of signology.
Immortal Technique is an activist and political rapper. Apart from being a revolutionary in his music, he is also noted for his talent as a lyricist and storyteller and has won many rap battles. In many of his songs, he references the strife of poverty in the slums of America and he points blame at politicians to the point of conspiracy theory. He has also expressed unwavering support for Mumia Abu-Jamal and has received support from Mr. Jamal in return. His politically based rhymes deal with the wrongdoings of the government, the media (The 4th Branch), religion, and law enforcement. He is a provider of esoteric knowledge. Among many controversial subjects, he raps about MK Ultra, the death of Amadou Bailo Diallo, and the alleged corporate media bias of outlets like FOX News to give only a few examples. To maintain his integrity he has yet to sign with a major label.more...
Born in a military hospital in South America, Immortal Technique was brought to Harlem in the early 1980's while a civil war was breaking out in his native Peru. After facing several charges of aggravated assault in the New York tri-state area, he was given a 1-2 year sentence in the mountains, 6 hours away from the city. Paroled in 1999, Immortal Technique quickly became known throughout the New York underground. His brutally disrespectful style was trademark, and it was not long until he had won countless battles. From Rocksteady Anniversary, to Braggin' Rites, SLAM DVD's and hookt.com's infamous battles...
Derived from Yonah (Hebrew meaning "Dove" or Sign of God, and also means 'The Doer') and translated through the Greek Ionas to the present Jonas. The Lithuanian name Jonas was independently derived from the name 'John' which means either a client of prostitutes or a device you sit on to crap.
Also a namesake book in the old testament depicting a prophet's involuntary ingurgitation by gigantic marine wildlife as part of a divine motivational technique program.
Also a reason for screaming adolescent girls to wet their drawers, and for lame rock bands to write mediocre songs in sappy 3/4 time signatures.
(The Doer) "You see that girl, I'd like to Jonas."
(The Dove) (In the shower( "Honey, do we have another bar of Jonas under the sink?"
(Sign of God) "I neglected to read the Jonas on the freeway and missed my exit to the Billy Graham talk."
When somebody tells you information about themselves and then forgets they did any such thing. You then use said information to impress them.
"A drunk girl at a bar told me she was a Virgo in some random conversation. I went out for a cig a while later and she followed. She asked me the same set of questions about my 'sign' as she had inside the bar. I said, 'let me guess, you're a virgo'. Her jaw dropped. An hour later I was getting a BJ in her car" - Zenitram
someone who benches 300 pounds with the worst technique then leaves the weights on the friggin bar when they leave.
looks like that gym idiot can't read the sign. (the one that states in large bold lettering: PLEASE REMOVE WEIGHTS AFTER USE!!)
The CSI effect is a phenomenon that now frustrates the american legal system. Prospective jurors are beginning to have unrealistic expectations of forensic technique and expect airtight cases with slam-dunk convictions. While television makes things look easy(as always), the fact is, that forensic science involves excruciatingly long procedures(DNA testing takes days/weeks, not hours to do) and don't always produce conclusive results. Experts blame the popularity of the the television shows Law and Order and CSI(hence the name). The CSI effect also applies to criminals who attempt to cover up their crimes by countering techniques seen on television, such as shaving off body hair to prevent leaving DNA.
A possible sign of the CSI effect: American universities are experiencing a sharp increase in students studying forensic science. However, this may be as much due to the publicity of the OJ Simpson and Scott Peterson murder trials

'I Know you Got Soul'more...
It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you
Without a strong rhyme to step to
Think of how many weak shows you slept through
Time's up, I'm sorry I kept you
Thinking of this, you keep repeating you miss
The rhymes from the microphone soloist
And you sit by the radio, hand on the dial, soon
As you hear it, pump up the volume
Dance wit the speaker 'till you hear it blow,
Then plug in the headphone 'cause here it go
It's a 4 letter word when it's heard, it control
your body to dance (You got it) soul,
Ditects the tempo like a red alert
Reaches your reflex, so let it work
When this is playing, you can't get stuck wit
The steps, so get set and I'm a still come up wit
A gift to be swift, follow the leader, the rhyme will go
Def wit the record that was mixed a long time ago
It can be done but only I can do it
For those that can dance and clap your hands to it
I start to think and then I sink
Into the paper like I was ink
When I'm writing, I'm trapped in between the lines,
I escape when I finish the rhyme...
I got soul
You got it (4x)
I know you got soul
Picture a mic, the stage is empty
A beat like this might tempt me
To pose, show my rings and my fat gold chain
Grab the mic like I'm on Soul Train
But I'll wait 'cause I mastered this
Let the others go first so the brothers don't miss
Eric B. break the sticks (you got it)
Rakim will begin when you make the mix
I'll experiment like a scientist
You wanna rhyme, yo...
