FRee Dictionary ^ | Wednesday | FRiday's Sub

Posted on 03/28/2012 5:22:20 AM PDT by tioga


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”.

Eidolon

Noun

n. pl. eidolons or eidola (-l)

    1. A phantom; an apparition.
    2. An image of an ideal.


Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.

The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.

The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

Practice makes perfect.....post on....

Review Threads:

Review Thread One: Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02: Raffish (Be SURE to check out posts #92 and #111 on this thread!)

Review Thread Two: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/14/03: Roister

Review Thread Three: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/28/03: Obdurate


TOPICS: Word For The Day
KEYWORDS:
President Obama's promise of hope appears now to be just an eidolon as the country teeters on anarchy. No answer to the Black Panther's bounty on a United States citizen. Eric Holder has made no statements telling them to stand down. Obama rambles on that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon. Leadership from Obama is spotty at best, non-existent at worse. A race war with images of blacks rioting over this case could well doom his candidacy.

The President’s foreign policy is also an eidolon. He is going to sell us out to the Russians the day after the election.

Eidolon (eye dough lin)

Yep, For once Noe Webster got it right. At the moment (and five years of moments) I’m idling (eidolon) between jobs.

Don’t quite get this fella, Phan Tom though. Has to be flat lander and foreigner, besides, What kinda sissy sings in an opera for a job? Maybe he filled out a job apparition for it.

I tried to get off unemployment after being on it for 150 weeks, but they wouldn’t let me. They said “Eidelon! We need the work!.”

Obamacare, liberal eidolon

Zimmerman is guilty, OJ innocent. LOL Justice is a pipedream. A++

Have you seen the news that Spike Lee tweeted the wrong address and a 70+yo couple had to flee their home. They are not related to the George Zimmerman who was involved. If someone gets hurt, should we hold our breath for Holder to intervene?

I think all three of those @$$hats (Spike and AL and Jessie the Justice brothers) should be held financially responsible for this entire debacle.

I wonder if the marketing genius in the White House who came up with the statement for Obama to say that "this is what my son would look like" is packing up his desk now?

Dear Annie: I am a 54-year-old lesbian in a 23-year relationship. My partner and I have begun to hate traveling. Don’t get me wrong. We love and enjoy exotic places, but dealing with stupid and rude people is getting old.

Our problem has to do with the ladies room. We are often mistaken for men and questioned. I don’t get it. Some women seem shocked by us and occasionally make a scene as if we chose the wrong bathroom. While we don’t wear makeup or frilly clothes, we also don’t wear suits, ties and wingtips. I wear earrings, female clothing and a wedding band set. Think Ellen DeGeneres.

These ignorant women need some education. Please tell them they are rude and hurtful. If our presence makes them uncomfortable, maybe they should leave the bathroom. Many of the encounters make me feel bad for days. I just want to be left alone. What can I say to nip this in the bud? — Santa Cruz, Calif.

Unless they are performing sex acts upon each other in the bathroom i think this is BS. There have been dykey women around forever, i just can’t see anyone acting upset by them.

I suspect it was theO himself and we will have to fire him ourselves. If it was some underling, I doubt theO will let him/her go. O isn’t smart enough.

I think it is a made up comment and an equally stupid answer. We’ve all seen lesbians who look so much like a boy you think “Pat” - male/female, can’t tell. That might alarm anyone if they thought a man was going into the women’s restroom. But, this pretend letter claims they don’t look like men, just not overly feminine and I agree with XS - we’ve all seen women like that and it doesn’t cause a moments concern. Now, what would bother me is a man obviously in drag going into a ladies room....that is just too weird.

She’s more feminine than she wants to admit if someone staring at her upsets her for days. ;^)

Sadly, the official answer did not include the phrase “try a hairstyle other than a crew cut.”

If that site couldn’t come up with a more clever or helpful answer they should have omitted that particular question. It just came across as either a complete lie or someone afraid to address it. If it really was true, then the woman don’t look as neutral as they claim and instead look like full on men - maybe they should just wear adult diapers and avoid the bathroom altogether.
