Jun 12 Word of the Day
Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.

Carte blanche literally means "blank check." It is a term used when person A does a favor for person B and in return requests carte blanche (aka, a promised favor in the future.) Just like a blank check can be any amount, carte blanche could could be any range of favors.

A situational term. This can take place in either a home with multiple roommates or an office with several coworkers. The first roommate/coworker that goes into the bathroom in the morning to lay down the first dump of the day has "carte blanche". Meaning that he/she has a blank canvas to do his work on and therefor set the tone for the day's defacation.
Keller ate tacos last night, I'm glad I got into the office early this morning to get the carte blanche.
