Jose Carillo's Forum


The Lounge is the free-talk section of the Forum. You can post anything here about any topic outside English grammar and usage. Wide-ranging discussions and debates will be allowed in the Lounge subject only to the condition that the subjects are not unlawful, obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, and threatening. As in the Forum’s sections on English grammar and usage, we expect discussants to keep the Lounge a vibrant venue for relevant, healthy, and civilized discussions, not impertinent, angry, or violent ones.

So if you have any non-grammar thought or idea you’d like to share, make the Lounge the sounding board for it now! Let your fellow Forum members help you germinate the seed of that idea if it’s a good one—or terminate it if it turns out to be otherwise.

Essay: “The Woman of Tomorrow”
By Angel B. Casillan

Forum member Ben Sanchez is sharing with us today what he calls a Modern Dictionary’s “wonderfully described definitions.”

Let’s enjoy them!
A pinch of tobacco rolled in paper with fire at one end and a fool at the other!
It’s an agreement wherein a man loses his bachelor degree and a woman gains her master.
An art of transmitting information from the notes of the lecturer to the notes of students without passing through the minds of either.

The confusion of one man multiplied by the number present.
The art of dividing a cake in such a way that everybody believes he got the biggest piece.
The hydraulic force by which masculine will power is defeated by feminine water-power!
A feeling when you feel you are going to feel a feeling you have never felt before.
A book which people praise, but never read.
A curve that can set a lot of things straight! 

A place where you can relax after your strenuous home life.

The only time when some married men ever get to open their mouth.

The name men give to their mistakes.

A person who tells you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.

A person who while falling from EIFFEL TOWER says in midway “SEE I AM NOT INJURED YET!”

A person who lives poor so that he can die RICH!
A banker provided by nature.
Someone who is early when you are late and late when you are early.
One who shakes your hand before elections and your confidence later.
A person who kills your ills by pills, and kills you by his bills!
