Word For The Day, Thursday, August 28, 2003
The Verbivores | 8/28/03 | Teacher

Posted on 08/28/2003 5:09:55 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. Practice makes perfect.....post on....


tacit \ta*sit\, adjective:
tacitness; noun
tacitly; adverb

  1. Not spoken: indicated tacit approval by smiling and winking.
    1. Implied by or inferred from actions or statements: Management has given its tacit approval to the plan.
    2. Law. Arising by operation of the law rather than through direct expression.
  2. Archaic. Not speaking; silent

    The tacit and secret theft of abusing our brother in civil contracts.
    --Jer. Taylor

    Etymology: [Latin tacitus, silent, past participle of tac re, to be silent.]

Good Morning Students. Welcome to class!

Class is now in session. The rules are simple; you get a grade if you use the WFTD in a sentence, haiku, limerick, or quatrain. You get a "+" if you make a link, or make the teacher laugh, or you offer the appropriate bribes. I hold the grade book; the whip and chair.

I don't have a specific example today, so y'all will just have to muddle along.

Tacit agreement
A conservative's downfall
Action is needed!

Nothing tacit in this article about the bizarre weather conditions, it's just further proof that nobody really knows how to predict the weather.

Morning Miss Rika. Why are people blaming some nameless pranster for being tardy? I got her on time because I slept here.

As much as I hate to admit this, Joe Biden actually did something worthwhile for our troops.

Air conditioners to fly out of Dover

And I think it's' way cool that Rush got behind the effort with money and not just mouth.

Morning!!!

Have you been getting the same horrendous thunderstorms that we have the past few days.

I know the ones on Tuesday did some damage in the DC area.

You should have been with us when I opened the classroom at the same time every morning, now they were serious pranksters in those days.

Morning!

By touting the issue of race
Texas democrats seek to make a case.
But farmers give tacit approval
To these racists' ultimate removal.

We were sitting outside on Tuesday about 7 when the sky to the north of us started getting really black and the wind picked up.

All of a sudden I realized that the sound I was hearing was not just the wind in the trees behind us, but the rain just on the other side of them.

We had just enough time to get our chairs and the dogs in the house before the sky openned up on us!!!!!!

I had 2 jumpy dogs and a jumpy kid because of the intense and frequent lightning - but we never lost power.

the sky got dark fast last night also, around 7pm, we were in the puppy K class and were facing the wall of windows and could see the lightening. xs2pup was scared enough of the other dogs that he didn't notice the storm. : )

Lucius will probably get over being a 'fraidy cat, but I don't think the same holds true for my Husky, who is terrified of the deer, even though they are on the other side of a fence. She trips over herself to get in the back door if they even stomp and snort at her.

I've got to leave for an appointment, but don't you wish Ahab had been able to finish the job on Ted when he had the chance. Just think of all the lamps the oil from that lard-laden whale could have kept burning.

With Clinton in charge, we were placid
Acceptance of terror was tacit
From the truck bomb at The Towers
To The Cole, he used no powers
All was fine if his schlong wasn’t flaccid

Matt Drudge's tacit disapproval of Arnold is palpabale, if he spent half as much time digging up dirt on Bustmecha, he'd already be gone.

OUI, OUI: ARNOLD PUMPS UP ORGIES AND DOPE IN '77 SHOCK INTERVIEW

I apologize in advance for the French, it's from Drudge's headline.
