quote:
de·ri·sion (d-rzhn) n.

1. Contemptuous or jeering laughter; ridicule.

2. The act of deriding, or the state of being derided; mockery; scornful or contemptuous treatment which holds one up to ridicule.

[Middle English derisioun, from Anglo-Norman, from Late Latin drsi, drsin-, from Latin drsus, past participle of drdre, to deride. See deride.]


It stops now. One way or another.

If you think I'm talking to you, I probably am. If you're not sure, you should probably play it safe. My patience has ended, and all I really need right now is an excuse.
