1. The value of the shares/stock issued by a company.

2. A branch of law that developed alongside the common law in order to fix some of the outright bullshit, injustice and unfairness present in the common law
1. This company doesn't have much equity, it must be financed through a lot of debt. If it doesn't produce enough cash flow from operations, they banks are coming to claim their interest and it's goind under.

2. Yo, did you hear how the common law courts tried to give the dude's house that he paid for to that skanky hoe just because her name was on the deed. Thank God that in Equity he was ruled to have some beneficial title in it. If the common law was the only system that existed, we'd all be anally raped in the snow and left to freeze.

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

The amount of TV programming saved to a Tivo or Digital Video Recorder when the pause button is used--not to be confused with recorded TV programming which is saved on the Tivo or DVR indefinently. Equity only lasts up until the channel is changed or is 'spent' fast forwarding through commercials.

I paused the TV 10 minutes ago and now I have enough equity so I probably won't have to sit through any commercials while I watch my favorite show. I can just fast forward right through them using my 10 minutes of equity.
