A dear friend gave me a book about the Burned-over District in Western New York State in the 1800s. The Erie Canal had a huge impact on this area and the book describes the towpaths built at that time. Since I have never lived around canals, this part of history (towpaths) had escaped me, until now.

There were so many evangelists in the above area, that psalm-smiter would probably have been heard, along with Presbyterian "priest-craft". The book referred to Baptists as Dunkers. That got a laugh out of me.

The poop deck has always made me wonder how it got its name.

Could protend be used to describe what happens during an erection, like; "His family jewels protended into something akin to the national treasury and the utter pleasure on her face was more than obvious.

protasis - noun 1. the introductory part of a play or narrative poem 2. CONDITION

The family jewels just hang there. It was his magnificent masculine member that protended. (Unless it was a pretender.)

Carlus, I thought the whole package was the family jewels. Are you saying only the balls are precious that way? Is it because the reproducers are stored there? If not for the most interesting part of the package, responding in protendous ways, no one would ever have been born, back in the day, not including immaculate conceptions, of course. Maybe it is the female perspective working here or just my girlish misinformation coming to light.

The phrase "family jewels" only refers to testicles (perhaps only in the UK).
And they are 'precious'; actually, you raise an interesting point.

If I understand the furore to be occasionally heard on Woman's Media, the Testicles are as important to a man as Breasts are to a woman. The difference is that where a woman can function as a woman without breasts a man cannot normally function without 'Balls' (he'd need prostheses with most women).

The poop deck derives its name from the Latin word, puppis, which literally means the stern of a ship.

Some time in the fifteenth century, the French latched onto this Latin word to give a name to the raised upper decks of their ships, which were located at the stern. They called these decks la poupe, which was later bastardized by the English into poop decks.

But don't take my word for it. If a hot chick makes a video, then it has to be true.

I stand corrected, gents, I will forever think of family jewels as the danglers only. Pity to leave the staff out of the jewel box, though.

prosy - adj 1. PROSAIC 2. TEDIOUS

encomium • n., glowing and warmly enthusiastic praise.




A shipmate ran across the word in a Ken Follett novel and— to my astonishment (because I know where he's gone to school) said he'd never seen the word before.

My favorite seldom used word is in the sentence below. Makes me wonder how many words sound dirty but aren't.

Not only was she a practicing thespian, performing her acts in front of paying audiences, but she would often masticate at the dinner table.
