Word For The Day, Thursday, August 22, 2013 coaptation
dictionaries ad nauseam | 22 August 2013 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 08/22/2013 4:22:19 AM PDT by secret garden


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".

coaptation \koh-ap-TEY-shuhn\, noun
a joining or adjustment of parts to one another: the coaptation of a broken bone.

Example sentences:
...though nothing be declared thereby of the structure and coaptation of the spring, wheels, balance, etc. and the manner how they act on one another so as to make the needle point out the true time of day.
-- Aldous Huxley, Complete Essays, Vol. 4, 1936-1938

Harding approved entirely, and it was decided that the two wounds should be dressed without attempting to close them by immediate coaptation.
-- Jules Verne, The Mysterious Island, 1874

Etymology:
Coaptation stems from the Latin word coaptātiō which meant "a precise joining together."

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....

The coaptation of Obamacare into our health care system is not going well.

Every same-sex cohabitation
Ignores the laws of coaptation
He fits her, she fits him
That is nature, not some whim
It’s how God maintains His civilization

i don't know who can bring it about in 2016, but there needs to be a coaptation of conservatives. Otherwise, every one of us will face this kind of thing on a daily basis.

The Obama Regime survives through a cunning coaptation of insincerity, intimidation, and inveterate infractions of the Law of the Land.


America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Too late and politics won’t change it.

100 years of Gramsci and Marcuse doesn’t get overturned by one election.

The Cultural Marxists won.

The coaptation involving a 14 year old boy and a police officer is just plain sick. Just proof our society is warped beyond repair. They murdered the boy's father, may he RIP.

Things will not improve from where we are. Are only hope for things to get better is for them to get much worse first.

Just like with Obamacare. It needs to happen in order for it to unhappen.

It's times like these that we turn to George Costanza:

G: I don't want hope. Hope is killing me. My dream is to become hopeless. When you're hopeless don't care. When you don't care, that indifference makes you attractive.

J:-So hopelessness is the key.

G:-It's my only hope.

pretty much decided on this for my light fixture over the kitchen table. yesterday i had to pick the paint color, bc Al wants his guys to paint tomorrow before hanging the cabinets. he is having a colonoscopy tomorrow and wants to leave them something to do without needing his supervision. i have picked a color called spun sugar, it's kind of peachy.
