Facebook is where I find out which of my family and friends really like official pages of strippers and lad mag models. So it's kind of like Myspace.
I feel like we are solidly pre-post-internet at this point. - Meg VMeg
Also a good place to see your friends get snookered by sneaky web pages that need a FB like to see the intriguing picture/video. - Andrew C (✔)

Besides "landlord", what modern words most evoke feudalism?
gentrification - Victor Ganata from iPhone
eminent domain (not that I feel that's a bad thing always but the word "domain" feels feudal to me). - Spidra Webster
Fealty - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Realty --> realtor Fealty --> fealtor? - Spidra Webster
This is actually part of the reason behind why I hate addressing a group of women as "ladies". 'Lady' is the female equivalent to 'Lord' to me. - Spidra Webster
Also because of my American bias: queen, crown, realm :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
sharecropper - Spidra Webster
payment in kind - Spidra Webster
dominatrix - Todd Hoff
commons - Spidra Webster
poaching - Spidra Webster
tribute - Spidra Webster
dowry - Spidra Webster
chattel - Spidra Webster
Of course, most of these aren't modern words but words that are medieval or pre-date the Middle Ages but have survived to our own in some form. - Spidra Webster
Yeah, I meant words that have survived till now. But I shoulda been more specific (and yet subjective too) by specifying modern -and- commonly used. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
gentleman - Spidra Webster
boner - Dough Balls
Steve, you scamp! - Spidra Webster
There are actually a lot of medieval throwbacks in legal speech. Estoppel, escheat, eminent domain, etc. - Spidra Webster
Milk of the poppy <wink> - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
watery tart - Brent Schaus
bankrupt. - Betsy

Impressed that Google's stemming algorithm knows that clusterfuckier is the comparative form of clusterfucky. Also surprised I've used both.
clusterfucky or clusterfuckery? How do they differ? Discuss! - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn

Hannity Unloads on ‘Hack’ Jon Stewart: ‘He’s Kind of Obsessed’ with Me
"Sean Hannity went after Jon Stewart Tuesday night for mocking him over his support of Cliven Bundy and hypocrisy therewith. Hannity mused that Stewart is “kind of obsessed” with him, and called the late night comic the “chief apologist for the Obama administration.”" - Eric - Watch Me Now from Bookmarklet
Can't wait for Stewart's rebuttal. ;-p - ronin
Hannity must not be aware of the old saying, "Don't feed the bears." - Steven Perez
Then again, Hannity's reaction might be a clever ruse to boost ratings. Nothing amps the numbers like a good old-fashioned poop fight over ratings. - Steven Perez
Errr... If Stweart's job is to point out the failings of news organisations and you're featured regularly... might not want to point that out... - Johnny from iPhone
Yeah, unfortunately they don't see that as Stewart's job. They think Stewart's job is being the "chief apologist for the Obama administration." - ronin
And really, Stewart's job is to make people laugh so that they'll keep watching Comedy Central. - John (bird whisperer)
did you see Stewart go after sexism in politics and journalism last night? Brilliant. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn

Lead in Ancient Rome's Water Was 100 Times Natural Levels - D-brief | DiscoverMagazine.com
"Everything from northern barbarians to the spread of Christianity has been blamed for the collapse of ancient Rome. But researchers have new evidence for another contributor: There was something in the water." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"A study has found that “tap” water in ancient Rome — supplied to the city via lead pipes called fistulae — contained 100 times more lead than water drawn directly from local springs. That amount of lead in the water may have been a “major public health issue,” according to the new study." - Maitani
Maitani, you might enjoy the amazing science behind lead (and the politics!) on Cosmos s1:e7, The Clean Room, http://www.cosmosontv.com/watch... -- also mentions lead as possible cause of Roman decline. - Adriano
Thank you, Adriano, my current computer doesn't let me watch it, but I will look into it soon. :-) - Maitani
Apparently, using lead as a sweetener was also a thing back in the day :D http://io9.com/5877587... - Victor Ganata

(1/3) Can anybody tell me what “opera vita aeterna” means? “The works live forever” would be “opera vivet in aeternum”, I think, and…
This response is plausible, at least: https://twitter.com/rappsta... (Opera is not a singular noun, though; it's just that neuter plurals in Latin can take a singular verb.) The lack of ancient citations is worth noteworthy at the same time: https://twitter.com/jamie_m... - John (bird whisperer)
