Definition: Arhythmetics, AI Winter, Racial Passing

I’m currently learning new words and terms at a pretty good clip due to the winter that is giving me lots of cause to stay indoors and learn. I’m also trying to absorb world art history as quickly as I can from Khan Academy, before I really get into painting because I want to compose and paint with that reference background! As a result, I’ve got words for about a month’s worth of posts.

So here we go!

 

Definition: Blackout Drunk

Blackout drunk

Memory loss (NOT passing out) from being drunk.

 

This one was news to me, being someone who did not drink. However, it seems it would also be news to a LOT of people. Otherwise, you wouldn’t find so many sources online explaining it!

 

I heard about this definition via a podcast with Malcolm Gladwell, but also got more information via a video embedded below.

Giants Matriarch Ann Mara Passes Away on Super Bowl Sunday

There’s never a good day to die… unless you’re Klingon. However, if there were a day for New York Giants football matriarch Ann Mara to pass away, Super Bowl Sunday would be as symbolic as any. She passed away due to complications from a head injury in a fall a few weeks ago (ESPN).

It’s very sad news for the football world on an otherwise big happy day, or more tragic if you dislike the Seahawks and utmostly loathe the Patriots as much as I do.

But here’s to remember a complete class act in Ann and the Giants. Rest in peace, Ann, and soon joy as the Giants will be back at the top again I’m sure.
