Definition: Compassionate Truth Bomb

Compassionate Truth Bomb

A fact spoken in clear, easy to understand terms and without bias, with purpose, not just intent, to help somebody recognize something they are not.

  • Term from Lori Gottleib in podcast linked below, definition of “truth bomb” from Urban Dictionary, and explanation paraphrased from Lori’s talk below.

 

I’ll have to remember this term the next time I offer “tough love” advice, whether or not engaging in ultracrepidarianism lol (see November 2nd’s definition post for that).

 

Definition: Guerrilla Gardening

Guerrilla Gardening

Guerrilla gardening is the act of gardening on land that the gardeners do not have the legal rights to cultivate, such as abandoned sites, areas that are not being cared for, or private property.

 

Sounds like a fun concept! More info and examples can be heard in the 99 Percent Invisible podcast episode below that is one of my favourites of all time!

 

Definition: Peace Lines

Peace Lines

Barricades that divide areas of Northern Ireland to help keep the peace. Also called Peace Walls as many are really walls.

 

These could apply to other places where similar barriers exist, but the term originated and is mostly associated with the complex situation in Northern Ireland. From the 99 Percent Invisible podcast episode below.
