What is quixotic?

Filed under: Educational,Words — eo @ 11:28 am

This word has been popping up a bit recently. So, what does it mean?

Quixotic can have a lot of different meanings blah blah blah.

The word quixotic basically means impulsive, idealistic.

A few examples:

  • Everyone knew his actions were quixotic and he even later apologized for jumping the gun.
  • He has read that “How to become a billionaire in 30 seconds” book and has been acting quixotic trying to do that.

Here you go. You learn word with RandR.

 

What does Posh mean? July 13, 2007

Time flies and it’s quite a while since we had something educational.

Posh is very flamboyant, advanced, and often uselessly difficult language. In British English.

Here, now you know. That’s interesting init.  Check out R&R for more educational and not that educational stuff.

Spice is something you eat, by the way.

 

Two Buck Chuck

Filed under: Words — eo @ 8:01 pm

Two Buck Chuck is an alcoholic beverage (sounds cooler). It’s a wine which is actually a product of bad-ass bacteria shitting and vomiting and dieing in their own vomit (seriously, read more info if you wanna know that). So, this wine won in a contest and stuff. I don’t care.

Now, I thought – is Chuck going to be on the 2 bucks? Or is he going to roundhouse kick it? Ok, that doesn’t make sense. Anyway.

On a totally different note, do you know where dollar came from? From Joahimstaler which is the Valley of Joahim where they used to manufacture money. It later became just taler, then the Dannish used daler and the Anglophones thought it was too weird for them and they switched to dollar. Bizzare.  Buck by the way might come from bucksin which means something like “dear fur” (not as dear like dear but dear as animal). Uhh.
