Re: Word of Today

Louche.
Adjective

Verb
louche (louches, present participle louching; past and past participle louched)

(transitive) To make (an alcoholic beverage, e.g. absinthe or ouzo) cloudy by mixing it with water, due to the presence of anethole. This is known as the ouzo effect.
Certain anise-flavored drinks have developed a mystique based on the exotic appearance of louching.

Re: Word of Today

Machiavellianism

"Machiavellianism in psychology refers to a personality trait which sees a person so focused on their own interests they will manipulate, deceive, and exploit others to achieve their goals. Machiavellianism is one of the traits in what is called the 'Dark Triad', the other two being narcissism and psychopathy."

Re: Word of Today

Disagree.


Every time I open a thread I need to disagree with giving permission to processing of my personal data. That's new on EF, started this morning. They kindly inform me that <<some processing of your personal data may not require your consent>> .... well, I will keep disagreeing, at least they can't claim I gave permission.
