Word of the Day! 11/6/11


laser [ley-zer]
noun
1. Acronym. Light amplified by stimulating emission of radiation.
2. a device that produces a nearly parallel, nearly monochromatic, and coherent beam of light by exciting atoms to a higher energy level and causing them to radiate their energy in phase.

immolate [im-uh-leyt]
verb
1. to sacrifice.
2. to kill a sacrificial victim by fire.
3. to destroy by fire.

EX. I never liked Smokey Bear but I think I went too far with my super-ironic-super-science this time. I created a Kodiak bear chimera with the wings of a California Condor, laser eyes and the desire to immolate all that stands in their way of total domination of the forest.
