finger-wave - Not a type of greeting nor a hand-gesture. It's something that was discovered by soldiers and sailors in Asia. It's an alternate way to relieve sexual tension and less expensive and risky than paying a prostitute. An expert practitioner (usually a man) would put a thumb into a man's groin and a finger up his anus. He'd squeeze the right place just so and the man would ejaculate violently. He'd be so drained, he'd have no sexual potency for about two days. At least this is the way it was described by buddies who had returned from overseas. There seems to be nothing about it in medical literature and I wouldn't recommend trying this at home. The wrong place might get squeezed and the impotency might last a lot longer than a few days.

e.g., He got a good finger-wave and didn't even think about sex for the rest of the weekend.

finig - That which signifies a lack of substance, quantity, or accomplishment: nothing; zero; nada; zip. (Believe it or not, "finig" is a popular combination of "finish" and "goose egg." It's about time that it appears in a dictionary so it can appear in scholarly papers.)

{ED. Theresa, if teachers are going to give students Fs for turning in papers that cite Wikipedia as a source, what will happen to those who use words that exist only in the pseudodictionary lexicon and in the minds of its contributors? Will they have to serve detention for the rest of the school year? Will they be banned from school proms? Will they suffer worse fates … if there are worse fates? (Are there any worse fêtes than school proms?)

For humanity's sake -- for our sake, safety, and sanity -- please don't cite the pseudodictionary as a source for your erudition. Hills Dale, Marty, and I don't need the grief that might ensue if students use words from our lexicon as real words. Besides, we don't want to invite the inevitable insult from teachers; namely, that "finig" suitably describes pseudodictionary and its far-from-erudite staff.

Thank you for your attention, your consideration, and your contribution. Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming activities studies.



PS. Incidentally, finig is an alternative spelling for fynig: "Mouldy, musty, damp; mūcĭdus, uligĭnsus."}

e.g., Adam's mother entered his bedroom to inquire about how much homework he had completed. Looking up from his video game, he answered, "Finig." She left with a pleased look on her face.

And we are right sorrowful to see thee thus crippled, unable to discharge thy fierce loyalty to ourselves or to the keeping of a manor fit for one so faithful, so loyal, and so loved."  
"Forgive these tears, Majesty, but your kindness unto me is undeserved: I do but serve my King, in whom personified are all the virtues and the powers longing to our nation. As I can serve no longer either my king or my country, I ask leave to find a room where I, without cumbering some abler soul, may rest my gray head and wait for death to free me from these my hurts, that I may serve my Heavenly King with all my vigor unto me restored." 
"I cry thee mercy, my most loyal officer. Wouldst thou then go to God and report me so miserly that I did not reward such faithful valor with naught but a pallet closeted in a garret?! Nay, sir: God shall see in me a hand as liberal with earthly rewards as His own with glory, peace, and honor! I dare not so eclipse one made to such a measure as thou art, lest God shall say to me, 'Flattest thou this my servant, O king of Earthly mud? Aye, flattest, thou ill this soul I sent unto thy realm the better to guard thee and thine?' Were I to give thee naught but what thy humility asketh, would not God send yet again the fingers of a man's hand to write judgement against me upon this very wall?" 
"Majesty, you are too kind unto me, but---" 
"Hold. Here is what I propose. Though thou wert as weak and crippled as a cobblestone, I would not relieve thee of thy service unto me. Thou art acknowledged the greatest battle master in all of Christendom, and shalt ever serve as my adviser in such matters. Thou shalt be lodged here in this castle, which I give unto thee as your due, for we do name thee earl of all these lands. And thus, I trust, God will judge that I his greatest souls did not esteem as dross."
