"S'up, Dooooood?" LOL! That really says it all, doesn't it?

Watch a few episodes of Trailer Park Boys and observe J-Rock closely. He has all the jargon down pat.

What concerns me is that Chongo is far more articulate than a lot of the young people I see around here...and he's not even human. Mind you, he grew up in a different era, and he has read all the Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade stories, plus most of the Edgar Rice Burroughs books.

Would it not be worse should we dangle our participles or split an infinitive in front of our dear maternal parental unit?

I believe that you have all lost whatever wits you may have had. To use common vulgarisms in Mom's presence is to shame yourselves! Zooks! Who would have thought that you would stoop so low as to use terms for a common tear-sheet in front of Mom! 'Sblood! It is enough to make Jesu weep!

"I say,old fellow" ==> "Dooood!"

"What's new in your life?" ==> 'Sup??

"Good morning, how are you?" ==> 'Sup, dood?

"I agree completely" ==> 'T'on!!

"Most impressive display..."==> Bomb!!

Eventually, this will produce a pre-Neanderthal vocabulary of subtle simian grunts, whistles, and hums.

"those who are too lazy, dull, or maladroit to say one full syllable correctly"

Yeah, there's been a lot of that going on. Such folks find even one distinct syllable hard to handle, but two...or three....they will do almost anything to avoid the stress of clearly enunciating two or three syllables!

Some examples:

"neighborhood" -   "hood"
"All right!" - "'Ite!"
"brother" - "bro"
"afro" - "'fro"
"Do you understand?" - "Know'msayin'?"
"And then I said..." - "So, I'm, like..."

Does anyone have some more?

And by the way, the folks I refer to are NOT all Black people. Uh-uh. Not by any means. No, this mental rot, passed on via TV, has found a happy home in a generation of young suburban white people who like wearing baseball caps backwards and shuffling around in pants that are 3 sizes too large. They disgust me...just like we longhaired youths in the late 60's disgusted our parents! ;-)

"Our common thread is our adherence to the universal doctrine of religious freedom:

"Do only that which is right".

Every person has the natural right (and the responsibility) to peacefully determine what is right. We are advocates of religious freedom.

The Universal Life Church wants you to pursue your spiritual beliefs without interference from any outside agency, including government or church authority.

I was re-reading your blurb on the Romist's version of ex cathedra, old fruit, and I think they missed a bet. We should steal a march and found a church actually NAMED 'The Universal Church", promising only to promote truisms that are universal (to humans). Our motto would be, "If It Ain't Universal, It Ain't Shit!".
We could put magnetic signs on the doors of all our cars reading "Universal or Bust". Those who chose the latter would be redirected to the nearest Golden Globes Temple, an organization I also founded. Since believe in God is not universal, we would leave that out. But all humans acknowledge being alive, and being at least partially aware, so we could play that up. Breathing in and breathing out would be a big touchstone. I think we're really onto something here. Since no icons are, indeed universal, we could have a whole section of the website dedicated to iconclasm. Our only icon would be a perfect circle, with no meaning attributed (since everyone likes circles but no-one agrees on what they mean).

YEah, I betcha we got a weiner here.

I don't think there is any such noun. In my dictionary, Ho! is what is properly called an ejaculation, teenieboppers, like it or not. It is inserted into sentences or calls, etc. to accentuate rhythm for shared effort such as in running up a heavy squaresail: "Heave-ho! We're bound for South Australia...". Or, it is inserted as a challenge, announcement, or greeting: "What ho, varlet!?" "Laaaand-ho!! Laaand-ho!" SOmetimes, it is used as nonsense syllable to facilitate rhymes: "Hi ho! Hi ho! It's off to work we go!"

It is true that in some other languages such as Ebonics, the word is used as a slang contraction for 'whore' by those who are too lazy, dull, or maladroit to say one full syllable correctly, but really. We are speaking English here.

Chorus:
Whatever you say, say nothing
When you talk about you know what
For if you know who could hear you
You know what you'd get
For they'd take you off to you know where
For you wouldn't know how long
So for you know who's sake
Don't let anyone hear you singing this song

And you all know what I'm speaking of
When I mention you know what
And I think it's very dangerous to even mention that
For the other ones are always near
Although you may not see
And if anyone asks who told you that
Please don't mention me

And you all know who I'm speaking of
When I mention you know who
And if you know who could hear me
You know what he'd do
So if you don't see me around
You'll know why I'm away
And if anyone asks you where I've gone
Here's what you must say

Well that's enough about so and so
Not to mention such and such
I think I'll end my song now
Sure I've already said too much
For the less you say, the less you hear
And the less you'll go astray
And the less you think, the less you do
And the more you'll hear them say

The guy who cut my hair for several years was the best hair cutter I've ever been to, and over the years he became a good friend. I know I'll eventually get it worked out, but I won't have as good a chat in the chair as I used to, I know that.

Whatever happened to those things that [as seen on TV] you could attach to the vacuum cleaner hose and cut your hair at a uniform length? I think that would appeal to Rapaire no end. And if he wasn't using it to cut his hair he could use it to shred top-secret library documents.

Stilly River Sage,
I've long since given up paying people to cut my hair. Too many tales like yours.   Most hairstylists just have no clue about how curly hair changes - e.g. in apparent length - from its wet to its dry state, so they inevitably cut mine WAY too short. They also disregard my desire to compensate for a natural "widow's peak," and the result is I usually end up looking like I have a sort of cross between a football helmet and a bicycle helmet on my head till my hair has a couple weeks to grow out - at which time I can tweak the front myself.

So I cut mine in the shower stall, usually without benefit of mirror till later.   Usually it works pretty well.   If not, it'll grow out just as fast as when the salon butchers it, and I don't have to pay $10 to $50 for the assault.

*g*

You can also get a "neck job". They surgically remove your neck, placing your head directly on top of your torso. This eliminates any further comfort or beauty problems associated with that ever troublesome bit of anatomy, the human neck, an appendage which many of us feel we could well do without. Still, you might then find yourself bothered by the subsequent feeling of your hair touching your shoulders and back....

I'll give it a couple of days to relax from being cut. Trouble is, she wasn't listening, or I was telling her so much she couldn't sort it out. Maybe a bit of both. We're in an unusual situation--my hairdresser died suddenly a couple of months ago, and he'd been cutting my hair for years. I was growing it out and we were doing a new style. I tried to let it grow a little more and figure out what he had described to me would be a good look, but I couldn't stand the hair on my neck, so I'm trying to go to an intermediate cut that I only had once and that this woman never saw in the years back she cut hair beside my friend.

I shouldn't be complaining--I could be a man going bald and not have these options or things to complain about.

"Ex Cathedra" = "From the chair."

Perhaps this one. Or maybe one of these. Or this one? Or
these, maybe.

You know, Amos, one should be quite careful about using such phrases as "ex cathedra." This little quote from the Catholic Encyclopedia should enlighten you:

Literally "from the chair", a theological term which signifies authoritative teaching and is more particularly applied to the definitions given by the Roman pontiff. Originally the name of the seat occupied by a professor or a bishop, cathedra was used later on to denote the magisterium, or teaching authority. The phrase ex cathedra occurs in the writings of the medieval theologians, and more frequently in the discussions which arose after the Reformation in regard to the papal prerogatives. But its present meaning was formally determined by the Vatican Council, Sess. IV, Const. de Ecclesiâ Christi, c. iv: "We teach and define that it is a dogma Divinely revealed that the Roman pontiff when he speaks ex cathedra, that is when in discharge of the office of pastor and doctor of all Christians, by virtue of his supreme Apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine regarding faith or morals to be held by the universal Church, by the Divine assistance promised to him in Blessed Peter, is possessed of that infallibility with which the Divine Redeemer willed that his Church should be endowed in defining doctrine regarding faith or morals, and that therefore such definitions of the Roman pontiff are of themselves and not from the consent of the Church irreformable."

Ergo, if you wish you speak ex cathedra you'd best be speaking from this one.

The Opus Dei crowd takes a mighty dim view of things otherwise....

Libris is the ablative plural form of the noun "liber", book.

Ex libris means "out from among the books...". The posessive is implicit, in those little stickers people used to get printed up to put in their books, back when having books was a sign of civilization.

ex : (= e ) (prep. + abl.) out of, from within, from / on account of.

liber libri : book.



Ergo, "out of book(s)" or "from within book(s)" or "from book(s)".

Merriam-Webster:

Main Entry: ex
Pronunciation: (')eks
Function: preposition
Etymology: Latin
1 : out of : FROM: as a : from a specified place or source b : from a specified dam
2 : free from : WITHOUT: as a : without an indicated value or right -- used especially of securities b : free of charges precedent to removal from the specified place with purchaser to provide means of subsequent transportation


Hence, "(formerly) from book(s)", as in "ex-Californian."
