One of my aim with this blog is to share new knowledge (or just old ones :P ), that I *think* others don’t have. Anyway, my point is that you my readers, can appear intelligent just by using uncommon terms for something so simple.
And our word for today is defenestration – which basically means throwing someone out of the window.
Defenestration is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window. The word comes from the Latin de (from; out of) and fenestra (window).
So how can you appear intelligent with this?
Easy, say you’re in a cinema right and you’re watching Steven Seagal (seriously though, I for one, don’t watch his films). Then mr “serious face” Seagal throws someone out of the window, then you can exclaim
“cool! he just defenestrated that bad guy!”
I’m sure your buddies will be dumbstrucked by your higher-than-normal vocabulary. Depending on how loud you were when using that word, you might not get invited to watch movies with your friends anymore.
But that’s okay, you’re too smart for them anyway :P
