That doesn't matter! Packers fans should be outraged that their team was slighted in this manner! [aiee]

Er, what's a momoluc?

(I only have four project binders and two classes worth of grades left, so I'm taking a break and I see big words I don't know.)

Couldn't find it on dictionary.com. But then again, Dakota's spelling ability is between 2nd and 3rd grade so who knows what he was shooting for.

I told you dumbasses this before. Cliff Clavin used the word to describe Carla's new husband when he was goaltending for the Bruins.

Oh yeah, that's how much detail I put into television. I have a mind chock full of uselessness.

A Mamluk (transliterated variously as mamlouk, mamluq, mamluke, mameluk, mameluke, mamaluke or marmeluke) was a slave who served as a soldier in Arabic cultures from the 9th through 19th century. The word comes from the Arabic مملوك (mamlūk), which meant "owned."

Ermordung der Mamluken in Kairo 1811

The famous Mameluke sword looks like this:

Mameluke sword wielded by Napoleon.

They are still carried by U.S. Marines in certain ceremonial contexts.

As an insult, it fails. I think people try to use it with the connotation of "troglodyte" or "Neanderthal" or something similar, but it misses wide of the mark.

I would think it would be more like calling someone a mercenary.

To me, calling someone a geek is an admission that they are smarter than you.

With all due respect, I used to carpool with a Motorcycle Mechanic. I had just started my first job in Software Engineering. I forgot the context, but he called himself stupid. I said, "you're not stupid. You're smarter than half the Engineers I work with. You could get broken vehicles to work and make head shots at 100 meters without a scope."

Yes, I was serious.

In the ol' Dungeons & Dragons, there's Intelligence & Wisdom. They are two separate scores. In real life, I have about a 15 or 16 Intelligence and a 6 or 7 Wisdom. I'll do stupid stuff that very few other people here will do in real life. I've made more mistakes than any of you. The ONLY reason we're doing well today is that I happen to be very good at accounting.

If I had my Intelligence and your Wisdom, I'd be unstoppable. Unfortunately I got my Intelligence and my common sense, of which the latter is pretty close to nil.
