It is performed by following the standard procedure for a Cobra, but instead of snapping back to level flight it continues to pull the nose further back, at one point flying tail-first. The manoeuvre allows for very quick turns which can make an attack fail by the opponent overshooting, or put the pilot in a position to execute an attack. It is an example of air combat poststall manoeuvring.

We were both out of missles, so it had come down to the traditional stuff. I let him get behind me, went quinquarticular, he overshot, and as he went past I put a line of 20mm cannon holes along his fuselage that soon erupted in flames. He bailed out and his crate exploded a couple seconds later.

ok, get out your new word books...


Quinquarticular (Theol.) Relating to the five articles or points; as, the quinquarticular controversy between Arminians and Calvinists.
The Arminians maintaining:

* Article I - That God, by an eternal, unchangeable purpose in Jesus Christ, his Son, before the foundation of the world, hath determined, out of the fallen, sinful race of men, to save in Christ, for Christ's sake, and through Christ, those who, through the grace of the Holy Ghost, shall believe on this his Son Jesus, and shall persevere in this faith and obedience of faith, through this grace, even to the end; and, on the other hand, to leave the incorrigible and unbelieving in sin and under wrath, and to condemn them as alienate from Christ, according to the word of the Gospel in John iii. 36: "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him," and according to other passages of Scripture also.

* Article II - That, agreeably thereto, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, died for all men and for every man, so that he has obtained for them all, by his death on the cross, redemption, and the forgiveness of sins; yet that no one actually enjoys this forgiveness of sins, except the believer, according to the word of the Gospel of John iii. 16: "God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"; and in the First Epistle of John ii. 2: "And he is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only. but also for the sins of the whole world."

* Article III — That man has not saving grace of himself, nor of the energy of his free-will, inasmuch as he, in the state of apostasy and sin, can of and by himself neither think, will, nor do anything that is truly good (such as having faith eminently is); but that it is needful that he be born again of God in Christ, through his Holy Spirit, and renewed in understanding, inclination, or will, and all his powers, in order that he may rightly understand, think, will, and effect what is truly good, according to the word of Christ, John xv. 5: "Without me ye can do nothing."

* Article IV — That this grace of God is the beginning, continuance, and accomplishment of an good, even to this extent, that the regenerate man himself, without that prevenient or assisting; awakening, following, and co-operative grace, can neither think, will, nor do good, nor withstand any temptations to evil; so that all good deeds or movements that can be conceived must be ascribed to the grace of God in Christ. But, as respects the mode of the operation of this grace, it is not irresistible, inasmuch as it is written concerning many that they have resisted the Holy Ghost,—Acts vii, and elsewhere in many places.

* Article V — That those who are incorporated into Christ by a true faith, and have thereby become partakers of his life-giving spirit, have thereby full power to strive against Satan, sin, the world, and their own flesh, and to win the victory, it being well understood that it is ever through the assisting grace of the Holy Ghost; and that Jesus Christ assists them through his Spirit in all temptations, extends to them his hand; and if only they are ready for the conflict. and desire his help, and are not inactive, keeps them from falling, so that they, by no craft or power of Satan, can be misled, nor plucked out of Christ's hands, according to the word of Christ, John x. 28: "Neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." But whether they are capable, through negligence, of forsaking again the first beginnings of their life in Christ, of again returning to this present evil world, of turning away from the holy doctrine which was delivered them, of losing a good conscience, of becoming devoid of grace, that must be more particularly determined out of the Holy Scriptures before we ourselves can teach it with the full persuasion of our minds.
Whereas the Calvinists maintained:

* Total depravity (or total inability): As a consequence of the Fall of man, every person born into the world is enslaved to the service of sin. According to the view, people are not by nature inclined to love God with their whole heart, mind, or strength, but rather all are inclined to serve their own interests over those of their neighbor and to reject the rule of God. Thus, all people by their own faculties are unable to choose to follow God and be saved.
* Unconditional election: God's choice from eternity of those whom he will bring to himself is not based on foreseen virtue, merit, or faith in those people. Rather, it is unconditionally grounded in God's mercy.
* Limited atonement (or particular redemption or definite atonement): The death of Christ actually takes away the penalty of sins of those on whom God has chosen to have mercy. It is "limited" to taking away the sins of the elect, not of all humanity, and it is "definite" and "particular" because atonement is certain for those particular persons.
* Irresistible grace (or efficacious grace): The saving grace of God is effectually applied to those whom he has determined to save (the elect) and, in God's timing, overcomes their resistance to obeying the call of the gospel, bringing them to a saving faith in Christ.
* Perseverance of the saints (or preservation of the saints): Any person who has once been truly saved from damnation must necessarily persevere and cannot later be condemned. The word saints is used in the sense in which it is used in the Bible to refer to all who are set apart by God, not in the technical sense of one who is exceptionally holy, canonized, or in heaven (see Saint).

anybody with a word they'd like to get off their chest?

OMG! I won! Thank you, however, may I ask everybody for patience picking the next word. I finally got out of town hence, separated from my dictionary, and will not be home until Wednesday, so if the runner up wants this round, I'll understand. I must say I am so appreciative of the honor, (read work) given the judges status on this board, and against such competition!! Wow. Thanks!

epexegesis, n.

confrontation with an unanticipated truth; the sudden realization upon facing reality that it differs greatly from a previously held perception

Who's that fat guy with that pretty woman? Oh my god, it's an epexegesis!

Coffee 10-15-2007 01:25 PM

Epexegesis n

The little known and poorly documented mass migration of Jewish swordsman (Historically noted for their stunning mastery of Épée...as well as masters of...wait for it..."fencing"....ba dum dum cheeeesh), from the lands of Egypt due to a contract dispute. The Epexegesis preceded, and in part caused, the events of the Jewish Exodus due to the lack of military protection for the Jews allowing the civilian population to be enslaved by the Pharos, leading to the events surrounding Moses and the biblical Exodus from Egypt.

Epexegesis n. - an award winning anime series in which clearly untrained 10 year old children pilot giant robot playing cards in between lunch time and math class.
