Ad hominem

Yes...when JMac made a statement about the nature of the Son of God that was very, very off and he publicly acknowledged it before the entire world. Let's take a peak at your life and see what we can find. What are you hiding Dennis? Unbelievable. The level of hypocrisy is sick.

The sin of "Dennis Swanson" is a different subject, and not as interesting. There should be a name for this. "Ad hominem" doesn't quite fit. Nor "ad hominem libellum" Nor "ad hominem innuedum"More like "ad hominem conjecturum" But my grammar may be off.

Camel case

A variable-naming style that separates the parts of a name with capitals, as in FirstSecondThird. See also: pothole case, kebab case.


"Combativeness" is a word. So is "combatative".. : Is "combatativeness" an existing word? Should it be? Is it better than "combativeness"?


CHYMPS is the acronym for the top political science PhD programs in the United States. It is the political science PhD equivalent to HYS (Harvard, Yale, Stanford) for law schools and HSW (Harvard, Stanford, Wharton) for business schools. CHYMPS stands for:

The acronym was originally Hypes-Bomb (Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Berkeley, MIT) as a shorthand for the top political science departments (perhaps pejorative, as in overhyped but famous political science schools).

Hypes-Bomb then morphed to CHYMPS since it’s catchier.

CHYMPS then became the updated HYP as an acronym for the most prestigious schools in the US generally (see Urban Dictionary entry from 2009), though it’s causing some confusion among Columbia, Cornell, Caltech, and University of Chicago fans who feel that “C” should stand for them, not Cal-Berkeley (just a bias against public schools IMO, since Cal is clearly superior to the other “C” schools, at least at the graduate level).


"In selling stock, the filer is not contradictorily asserting it is solvent; the *buyers* are saying that."


A rapid decline or deterioration in a situation.

Googleability or Googlability

A measure of how easy it is to find information about a person on the Web.

  Which spelling is better? 


καιρός. "a passing instant when an opening appears which must be driven through with force if success is to be achieved."



Short for "Kohen Tzedeq ("priest of justice"/"authentic priest") or Kohen Tzadok (meaning the name-bearer is of patrilineal descent of the Kohanim sons of Zadok)", Wikipedia says.

Kebab case

A variable-naming style that separates the parts of a name with dashes, as in first-second-third. See also: camel case, pothole case.

Lunate epsilon

 The lunate epsilon (tex $\epsilon$) is the moon=shaped one  that I like to use for something very small because it looks smaller. The "reverse-3 form is the uglier squiggly one that has the advantage of one-stroke cursive writing on the blackboard. See the Wikipedia entry.

Pothole case

A variable-naming style that separates the parts of a name with underscores, as in first_second_third. See also: camel case, kebab case.


A pronunciamiento (Spanish: [pɾonunθjaˈmjento], Portuguese: pronunciamento [pɾunũsiɐˈmẽtu]; "proclamation , announcement or declaration") is a form of military rebellion or coup d'état particularly associated with Spain, Portugal and Latin America, especially in the 19th century.

Ambrose Bierce (1911): "Rarebit n. A Welsh rabbit, in the speech of the humorless, who point out that it is not a rabbit. To whom it may be solemnly explained that the comestible known as toad in the hole is really not a toad, and that ris de veau à la financière is not the smile of a calf prepared after the recipe of a she banker."
