    I don't think that you did. Any experimental person in any field, to whom I have spoken has always held the opinion that you learn just as much from a failed experiment, as you do from an experiment that confirms your opinions (presumptions)

    Who coined the phrase "woke"?
    Seems like exactly what happened, slept through or otherwise distracted, classes and labs, on someone else's dime.
    It's oftentimes they learned it, just never understood it, and certainly had no grasp of their position in it.

    Woke
    Woke is a politically correct alternative to "stupid" or "retarded".
    OMG Sean Penn is so woke!

    FINALLY! A politically correct phrase for addressing beings of great sensitivity?

    Can't fathom complexity of what is going on of late.
    'We' are to follow what certain others deem PC. They invent nonsense, we're scorned pointing it out.
    What part of equality and free speech is missing there?

    Liberals demand 'inclusive' environments; workplace - politics - relationships etc.
    We are to submit acceptance; and chastised by ignoring instead. We are horribly wrong, for holding OUR OWN belief. How does one include concerted notion to be different?

    at the very same time........

    Liberals demand 'diversity'; workplace - politics - relationships etc, for self-induced out casts. This makes what SHOULD be personal, public. Public automatically denotes scrutiny. Notice many really great different things don't require advertising?

    Don't care what others do on their own, that's their personal space. Invading that of another, an equivalent of piracy, creates conflict AS IT SHOULD.

    In the not so distant past, courtesy demanded an invitation, like extending for a handshake. I am not compelled to accept!

    Here is some raucous augmentation.
    MarvK....for you sir, title alone will do.

    "Liberals demand 'diversity'; workplace - politics - relationships etc, for self-induced out casts." It is quite out of hand now. An American airline now has a 50% 'diversity quota' for pilots! 1/2 of them have to be the wimmins as well! Well and good if they can fly like Chuck Yeager but not good if they are part of 'affirmative action'.
    I'm off to listen to some Frank Zappa and get grounded back in reality!

    My flabber absolutely gasted that this unmitigated clap trap hes managed to find it's way into ANY sort of dictionary. Although I suppose that it's no worse than exagger8 or celebr8.

    I like "woke" as a liberal-descriptive adjective; it opens lots of opportunities for rhyming extensions...

    single: woke bloke
    plural: woke folk
    their speeches: woke croak
    their recommendations: woke joke
    their intrusions: woke poke
    their grass: woke toke

    A simple internet search for liberal:
    1. willing to respect or accept behavior or opinions different from one's own; open to new ideas.
    2. relating to or denoting a political and social philosophy that promotes individual rights, civil liberties, democracy, and free enterprise.
    A simple internet search for conservative:
    1. averse to change or innovation and holding traditional values.
    2. (in a political context) favoring free enterprise, private ownership, and socially traditional ideas.

    So here we have it. Neither definition represents what these cornerstones of American political thought apply to their current usages.

    Words are a contract, transactional. By that I mean they are only effective if we share a mutual understanding of their meaning. Otherwise I may as well say, wenogapt and choose it to meant whatever I want it to mean licensing me, then, to scorn all others who do not share my understanding of wenogapt. Without mutual agreement on definitions, then there can be no authentic conversation. Here's an example:
    Tolerate. To me, tolerate means to allow behavior without concern on my part of a possible negative effect. Kinda like tolerances in machining. Today, however, to tolerate has come to mean to endorse, event to celebrate. It is insufficient for me to allow your yellow streaked purple dyed Woolite-washed hair (I know, that style is years old, now.) not to bother me (gaak). Tolerance today demands I have to remark on how singular, how individualistic, how loverly, how representative of self, how... just like all the other yellow streaked purple dyed Woolite-washed hair styles out there.
    In my mind I do tolerate if I simply see and pretend I don't see (Don't make me look!).
    The modern definition of tolerate, endorse, does not fit me. I live in liberty. I do not wish to be required to act in ways that subtract from my contentment.
