"That hollow feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you're doing something, have done something wrong, and somehow know you can't reverse it." I really wish I had a word for that. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Two *possible* words in Tech are "t-adamiyya" or "h-adamismus" -- the feminine definite article is (a)t- and the masculine is a(h)-, from Adam, the man who ate the fruit from the wrong tree. It was guilt literally felt in the pit of his stomach. ~Danny~<< For the record, I didn't write any of that; you merely cut off my response *to* that message... ===== The Aquamarine Demon "All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry." -Edgar Allan Poe "It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand." -Mark Twain __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
