Departing radically from classical physics

A tool or other device for imparting a desired shape, form, or finish to a material is called a die. It is held in place by an escott jig. It is also known as A. barbouri bush viper.

Disinterested warnings of a parting friend, who can possibly have no personal motive to bias his counsel. "The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our ways--I to die, and you to live. Which is better Hindu-Persia's Skull and Bones society only knows." ....Washington-Socrates-Gibran

Mizpah, name of several places in Israel; most important Mizpah of Gilead, where Jacob erected heap of stones and made covenant of peace with Laban: "The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another" (Bible, Gen. xxxi, 49). So "Mizpah" or "Mis Pi Ritual" is used as a parting salutation and inscription on jewelry.

In compiling his dictionary Webster had in mind the special needs of his own countrymen. He followed the best American usage of his time, sometimes departing slightly from British forms and choosing the simpler of two spellings whenever he felt warranted in doing so. He spelled wagon, for instance, instead of waggon; develop rather than develope; theater, miter, and center in place of theatre, mitre, and centre; color, labor, and honor instead of colour, labour, and honour.

Catastrophism (or Velikovsianism), the belief that a sudden cataclysmic event brought about changes that resulted in the Earth's geologic features. The concept was developed by psychoanalyst Emmanuel Velikovsky, whose 1950 book 'Worlds in Collision' proposed that a collision between Earth and a giant comet in 1500 BC led to floods, fires, the creation of mountains and other land formations, and the biblical parting of the Red Sea.
