felo de se - Wikipedia: "Latin for 'felon of himself,' is an archaic legal term meaning suicide. In early English common law, an adult who committed suicide was literally a felon, and the crime was punishable by forfeiture of property to the king and what was considered a shameful burial -- typically with a stake through his heart and with a burial at a crossroad. Burials for felo de se typically took place at night, with no mourners or clergy present, and the location was often kept a secret by the authorities." | Suicide. | "A person who commits suicide or who dies from the effects of having committed an unlawful malicious act, an act of deliberate self-destruction." | "A person who commits suicide or commits an unlawful malicious act resulting in his or her own death, the act of suicide."

e.g., "With all respect for those by whom this opinion has been professed, I am constrained to regard it as utterly untenable, as palpably inconsistent, and as presenting in argument a complete felo de se." | "In denying the right they usurp, of exclusively explaining the Constitution, I go further than you do, if I understand rightly your quotation from the Federalist of an opinion that 'the Judiciary is the last resort in relation to the other departments of the Government, but not in relation to the rights of the parties to the compact under which the Judiciary is derived.' If this opinion be sound, then indeed is our Constitution a complete felo de se. For intending to establish three departments, coordinate and independent, that they might check and balance one another, it has given, according to this opinion, to one of them alone the right to prescribe rules for the government of the others, and to that one, too, which is unelected by, and independent of, the nation."

feminitpicker - Softer, gentler, and more insidious form of a feminist. People who start replacing the male pronoun with the female version a little bit at a time -- to "correct" a perceived mistake -- even though centuries of use have effectively neutered the male pronoun. The end result is confusion, anarchy, and the fall of western civilization as we know it. Most noticed by saying the secret code, "If there is a God, I hope She's a liberal." (See entry at "her.")

e.g., I can't believe some feminitpickers replaced ALL the pronouns in ALL the 3rd edition D & D books with "she" and "her." You would think they would be happy with replacing "... where no MAN has gone before" with ". . . where no ONE has gone before" in the Star Trek franchise. But that was only the beginning. Shun the feminitpickers.

ferraro gambit - (n.) 1. attacking an opponent for being condescending (despite the condescension's being entirely irrelevant to the argument) so as to score points with a particular segment of the audience -- a tactic that backfires more often than not, one way or another; 2. anticipating an opponent's arguments or actions, and preparing (and then delivering) a counterattack designed to devastate, defeat, undermine, chagrin, embarrass, or at least divert or confuse the opponent -- but which backfires or fizzles. (From Geraldine Ferraro's ill-timed and obviously planned interruption of VP Bush in the 1984 debate, "Don't patronize me just because I'm a woman" -- which made an otherwise excellent debater look bellicose and paranoid. This has been cut from the formal transcript).

e.g., "You're just homophobic; that's why you won't vote for him." "Don't try the Ferraro Gambit on me, man -- have you seen his stand on the economy?! On sentencing enhancements?! And his environmental policy?! The man is a certifiable bananawhacky!: I wouldn't vote for him if he were Saint Francis of Assisi."

ferris wheel - (n., also the "ferris wheel gambit") 1. a rhetorical device by which a speaker turns a single group into a set of (inimical) factions by declaring common ground or sympathy with one of the factions. (The term actually derives from the Greek New Testament, in which Paul, facing the Sanhedrin, and noting that some were Sadducees (Zadokim) and some were Pharisees (Pawrashim), called out, "I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee!" effectively dividing the counsel into two sects at each other's throats (with the Pharisees supporting Paul) instead of the united Sanhedrin they had been thitherto. In the Greek, Paul's words are "¦µ¦Á¦Ñ¦É¦Ò¦Á¦É¦Ïς ¦Å¦É¦Ì¦É ¦Ô¦É¦Ïς ¦µ¦Á¦Ñ¦É¦Ò¦Á¦É¦Ï¦Ô" (farisaios eimi uios farisaiou). Anyway, certain listeners of the younger sort heard the Greek as "Ferris Wheel." Hence this entry.)

e.g., An estadounidense, for example, facing a hostile Mexican legislative body, might openly subscribe, in their presentation, to the positions of the PAN (National Action Party), turning the PAN members against those council members belonging to the PRI (the Institutional Revolution Party), thus garnering support in the one camp at the expense of the other.
