|1.||the davinci code|
The Davinci Code is a book written by Dan Brown, though not using his own imagination. It is inspired by, and partially based on, two books written before his "work of art". It is a factually incorrect novel, put on the fiction shelf for a reason.more...
From the first page of the Davinci Code, you are hit with a lie wrapped in truth's clothing. Dan Brown creates this 'secret society' hidden by the Vatican, to be seen as a horrible and awful group. In truth, this secret society did exist - but not to commit crimes. Their goal was solely to help people in the way Christ would have wanted them to be helped, but in secret. They didn't want to make a name for themselves.
Second, you are lied to by having the "fact" that the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1950 and they contained secrets about Jesus, shoved down your throat. First of all, the Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947 and have NOTHING to do with texts called The Nag Hammadi (containing what is called the "Gnostic Gospels" by Dan Brown). Second, the Dead Sea Scrolls were written ONE HUNDRED YEARS BEFORE JESUS LIVED. How could these texts contain ANY information regarding Jesus' life?
Next, read the Nag Hammadi before you believe that they have anti-Christ-divinity writings in them. They only proclaim and renounce the divinity of Jesus, not denounce.
Also, the people who wrote these texts were BEFORE Constantine (the emperor who legalized Christianity). They were not of great influence - they risked their lives to s...

Creative people often get more ideas and visions faster than they can implement them, making them unable to complete a project before rushing off to the next
The DaVinci Syndrome is named for Leonardo DaVinci who is a prime example of this habit with starting more projects than he ever finished
|4.||off the grid|
Off the grid is an adjective or adverb, referring to the most extreme level of creativity and originality - sometimes, to a fault. AKA oteegee.
It may describe people, things, trends or actions.
Off the grid can describe current events which may be sinister. It may also describe people who have proven themselves so far superior in their chosen field that no one can compare.
It may also describe creativity or genius that's oftentimes so advanced that those who possess oteegee were often decades before their time.
Sometimes, innovation came so far before the general public was ready to accept it, that the originator actually died penniless, as is the case with many "off the grid" artists, engineers and inventors.
Utter genius beyond conventional comparison.
Leonardo DaVinci proved himself as an off the grid inventor.
Bob Dylan's off the grid musical talent is so powerful it keeps people buying albums long after his voice has failed him.
Michael Jordan and basketball? One word: oteegee, baby.
9-11's off the grid terror brought America to its knees.
|5.||What's the official name of this decade?|
"What's the official name of this decade?" was a serious business that occurred toward the end of the first decade of the year 2000, caused by people's indecisiveness with coming up with the "official" not so lame, catchy label before end of the year 2009.
Several contenders that arose:
The New Millennium
The Bush Years (accompanied by facepalm micro)
What's the official name of this decade? Besides "The Naughties"?
I bet my wallet that the people reading this in a few years will be calling this decade The Twenty Hundreds. Just sayin'.
|6.||On the reg|
A slang term for regularly.
Yeah man, I smoke pot and drink on the reg.
Yeah he does that shit on the reg
a condition that afflicts certain people after seeing James Cameron's Avatar (2009), causing depression and even suicidal thoughts, usually because these people only just came out of their caves and never smelled the roses.
the film's extravagant use of CGI to create Pandora and its inhabitants, the Na'Vi, created immediate followings and wishful thinking.
Usually, the people who have avatar blues think their life is crappy compared to the world of paradise on Pandora. Also, just look at those indigenous race of beautiful aliens that can download crazy stuff into the trees (like computer!). Who wouldn't want to be an avatar just for one day, racing gracefully through the fluorescent jungle and flying around the Hallelujah Mountain.
However, an average person might think that these people need to get it into their head that this is fantasy for a reason: it's for entertainment. That world is unattainable, and killing yourself will not magically bring you at the gates of Avatar heaven. So suck it up and move on with your lives.
