Lindy is short for the Lindy effect. The Lindy effect is a concept that the future life expectancy of some non-perishable things like a technology or an idea is proportional to their current age, so that every additional period of survival implies a longer remaining life expectancy. Where the Lindy effect applies, mortality rate decreases with time. In contrast, living creatures and mechanical things follow a bathtub curve where, after "childhood", the mortality rate increases with time. Because life expectancy is probabilistically derived, a thing may become extinct before its "expected" survival. In other words, one needs to gauge both the age and "health" of the thing to determine continued survival.
American Express has been around since the 1800s. Based on the Lindy effect, it has a higher chance of survival than PayPal, which has only been around for a decade or so.

Lindy: Name of a person who is slightly shy but shouldn't be because she is so awesome. Super funny, is way more beautiful than she realizes, and everyone would love her if she'd let them. IE: A girl who is too modest and would have plenty of friends if she'd open herself up.
"She is so modest and gorgeous too! A total Lindy!"

She is a girl who i see everyday in the classroom. She so sweet and kind. She so innocent when she look up on tall people. When i say something to her i feel embarrassed but it seem she misunderstand my intention to her. What else could i say i guess i fell for her from the start when i saw her smiling
"Hey Lindy, would you go out with me?" i wish i could say that to her

Shortened name for Lindy Hop, the mother of all swing dances. The name comes from a 1927 news headline which proclaimed "Lindy Hops the Atlantic" with reference to Charles Lindbergh's legendary flight.

The dance is between partners, one leader and one follower, typically a man and woman. The choreography is improvised on the fly by the lead, who guides the follow through turns, pushes, and other steps.

The timing is based on four-count blocks, and is typically danced to big-band swing music.
