Politically correct definitions

By Murray Bourne, 11 Oct 2007

Here's some fun: Politically Correct Definitions.

I enjoyed the euphemism for "loser":

Uniquely fortuned individual on an alternative career path

Some people should not be referred to as "ignorant", but rather:

* Knowledge-based nonpossessor
* Factually unencumbered

An "obnoxious" person may be thought of as:

Charismatically impeded

And next time someone passes on, you can use one of these instead of "dead":

* Living impaired
* Metabolically challenged
* Biologically challenged
* Persons living with entropy
* Environmentally correct human
* Terminally inconvenienced
* Electroencephalographically challenged

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
