Friday Nite Lite: Stick a fork in him…Lalochezia, my new favorite word

3c50cde1fe6a8d5d46cdf66639b9ffaaGood Evening

Lalochezia, what a wonderful word! Just look at what this magnificent collection of letters mean:

lal·o·che·zi·a (lāl’ō-kē’zē-ə)
Emotional relief gained by using indecent or vulgar language.

I think I am going to get this definition tattooed on my ass! (Well, maybe not on my ass but somewhere in the above vicinity!)

h/t Mona and her Facebook page for that perfect, perfect descriptive noun that actually could be my favorite form of a grandiloquent verb? (Or perhaps a medical condition?)

  2. Intresting…Ford “Know[s] Everyone Who Breaks the Law” Using Cars They Made — Why Aren’t They Doing Something About It? | The Volokh ConspiracyThe Volokh Conspiracy

    Business Insider reports that Ford executive Jim Farley stated, in a panel discussion:

    We know everyone who breaks the law, we know when you’re doing it. We have GPS in your car, so we know what you’re doing. By the way, we don’t supply that data to anyone.

    He later retracted that, saying Ford doesn’t routinely collect GPS data about its drivers, but that he was just “imagin[ing] a day when the data might be used anonymously and in aggregate to help other marketers with traffic related problems.” I’m happy to accept that clarification.

    Yet the point remains that Ford could technically gather this information, and could use it to prevent injuries. For instance, if GPS data shows that someone is speeding — or the car’s internal data shows that the driver is speeding, or driving in a way suggestive of drunk driving or extreme sleepiness, and the data can then be communicated to some central location — then Ford could notify the police, so the dangerous driver can be stopped. And the possibility of such reports could deter the dangerous driving in the first place.

    Ford, then, is putting extremely dangerous devices on the road. It’s clearly foreseeable that those devices will be misused (since they often are misused). Car accidents cause tens of thousands of deaths and many more injuries each year. And Ford has a means of making those dangerous devices that it distributes less dangerous; yet it’s not using them.

    Lalochezia. That’s a new on on me. Here it is used in a sentence.

    Stop yelling. I really think you should learn to channel your anger because your lalochezia is very offensive. I know yelling obscenities help you feel better, but your potty mouth is driving everyone crazy.

    Jen Sorenson is brilliant. She should be syndicated everywhere. Is it because she’s a woman that she isn’t?

    This is interesting:

      Sept. 13 — the day the closures were lifted

      Authority Executive Director Patrick Foye — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top appointed to the commission — sent an angry memo to staffers reeling against the lane closures.

      “I am appalled by the lack of process, failure to inform our customers and Fort Lee and most of all by the dangers created to public interest, so I am reversing this decision now effective as soon as TBT and PAPD tell me it is safe to do so today,” Foye wrote.

      “This hasty and ill-advised decision has resulted in delays to emergency vehicles,” he continued. “I pray that no life has been lost or trip of a hospital- or hospice-bound patient delayed. … I believe this hasty and ill-advised decision violates Federal Law and the laws of both States.”

      “To be clear, I will get to the bottom of this abusive decision which violates everything this agency stands for; I intend to learn how PA process was wrongfully subverted and the public interest damaged to say nothing of the credibility of this agency,” Foye continued.
