I just saw a post about the word “diuretic” and its meaning:
“Diuretic (dahy-uh-ret-ik): a person who has a constant longing for human interaction, but often feels lonely even when surrounded by others”
The hell…?! That is NOT what it means! A diuretic is any drug or substance that increases the rate of URINATION! Jesus, where do you kids GET THESE DEFINITIONS? I may be an old nerd and a terrible bore, but I’m also right!
My summer vacation was officially begin on March 24, last Thursday. For this week, I watched critically (and not so critically) acclaimed local, foreign, independent, and classic films. These are the list of the films that I’d watched from last Thursday to last Monday, March 28:
“On the other hand it may very well be Alapaap [Heaven] is about a drug-induced trip. So freaking what? If a singer mentions drugs, does this mean that all the listeners will run out and buy things like snort and shoot up? Perhaps Senator [Tito] Sotto thinks the audience is composed of morons who can not think for themselves, and progmmable robots who will do anything you tell them. What, then, does this say of the people who voted for Sen. Sotto?”—Jessica Zafra, from her book Twisted II
“Our triumph is at hand! Already we have proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that rock music is the instrument of the devil! By playing album backwards, we have demonstrated that the foul, fetid works of the Eraserheads, Yano, and the rest of their fiendish horde contain Santanic messages! … Not only have we proven the efficacy of backmasking as a weapon for the annihilation of demonic forces, but we have mastered the art of speaking entirely in exclamation points!”—Jessica Zafra, from her book Twisted II. Her sarcastic lines makes me laugh :D
