In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
metempirical \met-em-PIR-i-kuhl\, adjective
1. Beyond or outside the field of experience.
2. Of or pertaining to metempirics.
...but the quality of her innate wit had deepened, strange metempirical (as Van called them) undercurrents seemed to double internally, and thus enrich, the simplest expression of her simplest thoughts.
-- Vladimir Nabokov, Ada, or Ardor, a Family Chronicle
Still however, instead of aspiring to becoming rigorous and metempirical, poetry lives by the heart, the sense and singing.
-- Kahlil Gibran with Andrew Dib Sherfan, The Third Treasury of Kahlil Gibran
Metempircal derives from the Greek words met- meaning beyond or before and empirical meaning experience.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

OK, this story is just so metempirical, I don’t even know where to start....
The ick factor is just too too high.
Those who subscribe to the religious dogma of CAGW need to consider their metatemperacurlall behaviors that have collapsed so many economies - beginning with the US economy in 2007.
I believe this has already been adjudicated in one of the states. Basically, the seed is a gift from the man and the woman, who worked so hard to obtain it, is entitled to it.
Really odd article and creepy for sure
Although Foreign Policy may seem metempirical to Herman Cain, “Peace Through Strength and Clarity” makes sense to me.
Morning! Gotta run off for the day, will be back tonight to do homework. Probably won’t be posting from my phone as it drained the battery. I will have to invest in a new, updated phone.
The horrible part was that some of the women were lying about being on birth conteol, then hitting the guys for child support.
Of course guys can take a little control themselves and use a condom - especially since the author tried to justify her behavior by saying men should know a 40ish woman would be plotting against him. Way to trash all women in one article lady!
This does not surprise me at all. Women get crazy when they want a baby.
Read the article. Before you eat. This “lady” was helping herself to condom-contents in an attempt to conceive.
I did read the article, I was referring to men in general regarding the condom comment. Yeah this woman was a sicko - some kid really dodged a bullet on not having this neurotic mommy
Yeah, you’d think in this era of cooties, you’d want to, ahem, sheathe yourself against any extras from the encounter, birth control notwithstanding.
Exhibit B: Justin Bieber Baby Daddy story:
Civilization is truly doomed.
My SIL said that Fox had titled the Justin Beeb story something like the 30 second squirt?? LMAO!
