    Our Dublin correspondent just turned us all onto:

    "Natural exit strategy"

    Hmmmm, I gotta hunch that we shall see this term in the future.

    Knucklebuster
    A car, usually an old American car (1930's-1970's) who seems determined to skin, slice, and slash the hands of every mechanic who touches it, regardless of their skill-level. Resistant to tools, penetrating oils, vice grips, and laws of physics. Any bolt that is in this car will STAY in this car, whether you want it there or not, and if you try to remove it, it WILL break off, and leave you requiring 15 stitches in the process.

    "Nonexpendable individuals"

    A throwaway term in 2061: Odyssey Three, Arthur C. Clarke; but I like the Orwellian connotation.

    "... the sons and daughters of wealth, privilege and political power" .
