The Verbivores | 9/17/02 | Teacher

Posted on 09/17/2002 4:59:40 AM PDT by RikaStrom

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”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of 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....


nescience /NESH-(ee-)uhn(t)s/, noun:
nescient; adjective, noun
nesciently; adverb

1. Lack of knowledge; ignorance.
2. Agnosticism.
3. Ignorance (especially of orthodox beliefs)

"Then since knowledge pertains to that which is and ignorance of necessity to that which is not, for that which lies between we must seek for something between nescience and science, if such a thing there be."
--Plato

Etymology: Late Latin nescientia, from Latin nescient-, nesciens, present participle of nescire not to know, from ne- not + scire to know.Date: 1612

Good Morning Everyone, welcome to WFTD.

It was city and county officials who created the EIDC in the first place for the purpose of combating the problem of runaway productions. They're the ones who authorized the nonprofit corporation to collect the fees for local movie shoots, and they're the ones charged - by themselves - with overseeing the EIDC's operations.

Besides, even if local politicians shirked their duty to manage the EIDC, it's well known that they pay close attention to their campaign coffers. If they weren't around when the EIDC was cutting campaign checks, they certainly were there to cash those checks later, and that should have raised plenty of red flags.

CA corruption
This board so nesciently goes
Ooops, there's laws? What laws??

Oops, they did it again - Local pols plead ignorance of EIDC scandal

My liberal Political Science professor (who is also the Department head for Poli Sci) regularly displays a nescient attitude toward anything to the right of Charles Schumer.

last night she tells the class, that her pet Peeve is Why we cant have Handgun Control in this country, I blurted out, Because the Constitution says so....LOL, she dropped the subject (though I hope not my grades.. ; )

OMG, you must be a terror to that teacher. I love it!

I had the misfortune on both flights last week of sitting in front of liberal teachers. I was lucky that I didn't start a riot on the plane.

Yes, last week, she started to go on and on about Social Medicine, and I let her go on and on, carefully letting her set the trap, when she got to the inadequacies(she may be liberal, but not blindly so, and she usually shows the bad points) due to limited Medical resources, I said

But if we remove the Capital incentive from practicing medicine, wouldnt we also have a dearth of medical resources....Another abrupt subject change...

Homework:

The EPA and Forest Service are displaying the typical liberal lies and neahscience as they attempt to bring us forward into the 5th century technology.


And, for that matter ... the 3rd century of "follow the faith of conventional wisdom (of environmentalism this time rather than Aristotlism and churches) rather than the facts of real science.

Good morning all! xsmommy reminded me of something I wanted to tell y'all..........

My 16 year old daughter, who whines all the time about my time spent on the computer (lol) asked me the other day why I was laughing ......I went into this explanation about all of our jokes here...... moose, cheese, sister's being bitten by cheese eating mooses(?), and the all important need for a shower when there is a terrorist leaving a tuna sandwich in an airport and such...... down to the new and very important phrase "I'm series"...........

Someone had posted to me about listening to commerical free radio while in the shower and I was commenting to her that I understood the series and the shower parts, but didn't know what he meant by commerical free radio...... without missing a beat my daughter said, Perhaps they explained that the one hour you missed this week...........
