ZON - short for Amazon - opposite of a shcuwef

Strong, fit and proficient with pistol, rifle, shotgun, knives, H2H, improv weapons.
Mag reloading technique of Angelina Jolie (Tomb Raider) would be a plus.



SHCUWEF - screaming helpless can't-use-weapons female

Stereotype is the kind written into a lot of movies.
Femme types I know are NOT the stereotype, even my (pacifist, vegetarian) bestist buddy Julia is not, now that she's moved to the city. But the following usage would be appropriate:

Usage: On the range, if I can talk a femme buddy into going shooting with me, if she acts wimpy or demonstrates Barbie-behavior (the Rules are: No Barbie Behavior on the Range!) : "C'monnn, don't be a shcuwef!"



MBF - Micro Bicep Flex

Because it's not a guy bicep, it's a micro-bicep.
But could be intimidating at the right moment, or at least distracting.



IGS - Intimidating Girl-Spit

Because noisy guy-spitting is ick, but sometimes you gotta spit for emphasis.

Accomplished by turning head sideways and saying ::tuh::

Done when proving the shooting instructor incorrect when he says something lame like, "That little short-barreled P7 can't hit that.. [target on adjacent hill]". That's when a glare and a ::tuh:: are needed. Useful so that I don't get flattened from giving him an actual shin kick.

Cut-out

Cut-out

A person who provides a layer of insulation / abstraction between one person and another(s).

Geek-speak similar = a shim, to shim, shim it

Does a shim provide plausible deniability?

Possibly.

Last time I used that phrase was when an officer of a company I worked with asked me to take him shooting. His company like most I've ever work with or for had strong anti-weapons-on-premises rules. When we were driving back he asked me if I carried.

Knew that I could answer honestly and he wouldn't jam me up over it. Instead I said, "If I answer that question, I might (or not) create discoverable evidence that you had prior knowledge of someone carrying on your premises, which could (or not) remove your plausible deniability even if something justifiable were to happen, and which could be (or not) against explicit rules that you as an officer of your company are bound to uphold. I would not choose to impose that risk on someone."

From then on he'd ask me if he needed plausible deniability before I would answer a question .

Learned the term "cut-out" from when I was describing this guy who sent me a 5-word barely intelligible email in all caps asking me to call him (about my knife). I'm like 'yeah right' and wrote him off as a dolt. I eventually did call him, and he's a really nice guy and very intelligent person who is also simply completely computer illiterate. Another guy who from email I thought was just strange turned out to be completely normal. Maybe sensitivity level is set too low. But the point was to use a cut-out to shim potential weirdos.

"The man I am writing about is not famous. It may be that he never will be. It may be that when his life at last comes to an end he will leave no more trace of his sojourn on earth than a stone thrown into a river leaves on the surface of the water. But it may be that the way of life that he has chosen for himself and the peculiar strength and sweetness of his character may have an ever-growing influence over his fellow men so that, long after his death perhaps, it may be realized that there lived in this age a very remarkable creature."


W. Somerset Maugham, The Razor's Edge

I'm very late on this but, doesn't a shim wear a dress?

NDD, Razors edge had a proofound impact on me when I read it early in college. As I drift into nostalgia, I thought it was an interesting choice that Bill Murray pitched a fit to get it made into a movie.

I'm working through Masters Of Chaos. It is interesting to me to see the QP's take on the book.
