A Bronze Plaque at Mount Rushmore

HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Almighty God, from this pulpit of stone The American People render thanksgiving and praise for the new era of civilization brought forth upon this continent.  Centuries of tyrannical oppression sent to these shores, God-fearing men to seek in freedom the guidance of the Benevolent Hand in the progress toward wisdom, goodness toward men, and piety toward God.

concrastination

I have learned something about putting off for later what could be done now. The down sides actually do outweigh the advantages. Oh sure, at first glance it seems that putting off a task that lies before you, might grant you more immediate free time. But the downside (I have learned through years of careful study) is that things just don't seem to get done. So when you balance all of the pros and cons of procrastination, the cons actually outweigh the pros. Therefore, let the word hereby be changed, and let us refer to the putting off of things for tomorrow as

"concrastination."

Your cooperation in this matter will be appreciated by myself and the untold millions who share my particular personal bent.  We need a constant reminder.

Thank you

Bonafy

Today's new word is "bonafy."

bonafy  vb
1 : to prove good faith or earnest intent
2 : to authenticate or certify as authentic 

When someone makes a seemingly outrageous or unbelievable assertion, a proper response might be something like:

"Can you cite a reference with which to bonafy that statement?  Without some kind of proof, I cannot consider your statement to be bona fide."

A document such as a witness' testimony might require supporting documentation including a writ of bonafication.

I found a new guitarist that I'm pretty stoked about. You gotta dig this clean sound. Yeah, baby...

Okay. Now just close your eyes and listen to the sweetness of this one...
