    DEFENSTRATION!

    I think the right word is defenestration. It's quite common thing in the Czech lands. Actually, we had three defenestrations in Prague. First one was in 1419, when Hussites threw some anti-hussite councilors out of a window of New Town Hall. This incident started Hussite War.
    In 1483, radical utraquists (ascendents of former Hussites) weren't very happy with the situation in Prague (conflicts between catholics X protestants), so they did a putsch in Prague and threw town officials out of both Old and New Town Halls' windows.
    Finally, 23rd of May 1618 (we're gonna have anniversary), there was catholic Habsburg emperor Ferdinand and Czech Protestants had almost no rights. They went to Prague Castle and 3 emperor's officials threw out of a window. They were very lucky, because they landed in dung and survived. This incident started Thirty Years' War...
    Two years ago (NO, IT WASN'T DEFENESTATION!), I worked on Prague Castle. I was also in that room, where the (un)lucky officials worked. It was really hot in this room, but it was forbidden to open windows. :lol:
    Looking on our politic scene, I think we would need some defenestration now...

    I think the term defenestration was invented just for Czech history teachers. It must have been annoyning having to say: "So kids, today we're gonna talk about second throw out of a window in Prague." :lol:

    Show us your TITTLES!!!!!!

    Don't worry, I'm not sexually harassing you the way a working class person on a building site might. I'm actually requesting that you present to me the small dots that are placed over the top of a lowercase i or j

    You know when you see something that looks like a hedgehog but it turns out in closer inspection that it isn't a hedgehog at all? Of course you do!!! We all do!!! But what you probably don't know is that there's a word to describe things that look that way!

    ERINACEOUS!!!

    If you ever sleep with me, which I imagine some of you will at some point, you will discover upon waking that at some point during the night my hair has become erinaceous. I think its better you know this now than find out later.

    I'm sure I speak for everyone planning to attend the Manchester Orgy and Raffle when I say thanks for the (hedgehog) heads up.

    Do you believe in love at first sight?

    Well stop it! Its clearly nonsense, you can't fall in love with someone just by looking at them - even if they're proper fit.

    I'll tell you what you can do though, you can experience a sense that this is someone you MIGHT fall in love with one day.

    You're probably wishing there was a word to describe that feeling aren't you? Well guess what! THERE IS!! I mean, its hyphenated but I still say it counts.

    KOI-NO-YAKAN!!!!

    Feel free to use it yourselves today. But no cheating! Just spotting someone you think you'd like to bang doesn't count.

    I feel like I might've accidentally said this word when I got a mouthful of bugs outside.

    Jeez I really AM Superfrog.
