Word definitions from the Urban Dictionary: some Cs and some Bs

Ha, with modern ways comes modern predicaments together with modern thoughts and modern sayings…

Although I had a bit of a laugh and giggle reading these definitions of new urban words in the Urban Dictionary, it was a bit Schadenfreude (i.e. darkly sarcastic joy derived from the misfortune of others), which then left me feeling a bit tragic about the types of predicaments in which we find ourselves that become prominent and significant enough (read stressful) in our lives that require these types of thoughts, actions, feelings and what-not being labelled up by the urban lexicographer (is it?). 

But having said that, the plus side is that it makes us sleeker in our choices  Thinking smile .

What follows are definitions of new words required by today’s people living in the urban jungle…  Punk  … well, a few of the Bs and Cs anyway.

A bit more about Schadenfreude


Here are some stories from ancient China that inadvertently explain a little more about misfortune that hits in the most unexpected of ways. 

In these anecdotes, the misfortune may have had a small chance of happening, but it covered a an entire definitive area so as to render 100% misfortune, with no chance of escape… definitely mature thought process required.

 

= WHEN THE CITY GATES ARE ON FIRE,
MISFORTUNE BEFALLS THE FISH IN THE MOAT =

殃及池鱼
(yāng jí chí yú)

[ quoted from: CulturalChina.com – history – anecdotes ]

Once, in the State of Chu, the escape of an ape brought great disaster to the forests. This was as much as when the city gates were set on fire and misfortune befell the fish in the moat.

The story of the escaped ape runs like this: One day, the King of the State of Chu lost his precious ape, and it was reported that it had fled back to the forest it had come from. The King immediately sent men there to recover it. But, as the forest was immense and trackless, it was not an easy task to locate the animal. In order to let it have no place to hide, the King decreed that the forest be burned to the ground.

Concerning the misfortune of the fish in the moat, there was a story that took place in the State of Song. One day, the gates of the Song capital were on fire. People used the water in the moat and nearby ponds to extinguish the fire until they were dry. – Bai Jia Shu

Another story was recorded in Guang Yun to show how this idiomatic expression originated. Once upon a time, a man by the name of Zhong Yu (yu means “fish”) or Chi Zhongyu (chi means “pond”) had his home near the city gate. When the gates were on fire, the flames spread to his house and destroyed it. Chiyu was also burnt to death.
