Word of the Day
- The act or method of catching turtles; the business of a turtler.
- Any slow progression or build-up.
- in gaming, a defensive strategy of avoiding conflict, usually in a fixed position.
'Turtle' may be an alteration of 'tortoise,' which may come from the Late Latin 'tartaruchus,' of the underworld.
Quote of the DayI hate Science. It denies a man's responsibility for his own deeds, abolishes the brotherhood that springs from God's fatherhood. It is a hectoring, dictating expertise, which makes the least lovable of the Church Fathers seem liberal by contrast. It is far easier for a Hitler or a Stalin to find a mock-scientific excuse for persecution than it was for Dominic to find a mock-Christian one.
- Basil Bunting (1900 - 1985)
