So a statement by someone who clearly didn't want to be bothered with an interview is newsworthy?

I'm not sure that's the correct usage of the word "nonplussed." I'm confused.

Why is it news that you don't have any claims to someone's estate after you divorce them? That's kinda the point of divorce.

His estate was only 10m and he had a chauffeur? Farking priorities.
 
2012-01-30 11:06:44 AM
Gee, wonder why it didn't work out for the two of them.

Are you at a loss for what to think, say, or do? It's too bad there's not a word for that.

since there has been so much confusion over the years of exactly what nonplussed means, it has become its own antonym.

non·plussed/nänˈpləst/
Adjective:
1) (of a person) Surprised and confused so much that they are unsure how to react.
2) (of a person) Unperturbed.

/ the first definition is the historically accurate, etymologically correct definition. unfortunately, peopled thought that it sounded like it was supposed to mean the second that it has been misused so much, the second is also accepted as a definition of the word.

She hated him with a passion so he left her nothing

I'd be willing to bet it was paid for by the company.

That is a healthy attitude

I get the feeling that it wasn't an amicable divorce.

The news part is that she couldn't care less who he left his money to or that it wasn't her. The bigger news is that she isn't already lawyered up looking for an angle to stake a claim with, like say, 99% of ex-wives out there. I applaud her for that

/to be fair, 99% of ex-husbands would too.

wouldn't a chauffeur be cheaper then parking in New York?

I would say that reaction is classy indeed.

She already got half of his shiat when they divorced. Why would he give her his half, too?

She got what she wanted out of that relationship.

It's NYC, so he probably pays $12k / yr to a service, probably had a regular(ish) guy, at least he learned the guy's name. It's very popular there to have a driver, so you don't have to put up with traffic.

Can anyone else chime in, am I way off base on price? Livery service? Car Service?

You see tons of people there driven to work every day.

The ex-wife sounds charming. I'm shocked that he would divorce her.

Ladies, you can't be good looking enough to make up for this kind of personality.

"News" that isn't newsworthy is the entire point of this site.

Enjoyed watching him on Poker After Dark.

Well, I'm off to become the doorman of a rich guy.

2012-01-30 11:36:47 AM
A nice thing to do, but I doubt they'll actually get to keep any of the money, particularly if this guy had any kids or SO's walking around. The Wills of wealthy people have a tendency to be violated when they stiff relatives, unless the wealth has already been moved to trusts and the like before they died.

Yup. Highly edited, but you could tell in some hands he had bad tilt stretches. Would have loved to watch some hands of durr taking full advantage.

that word is the lexicographer's worst nightmare. anyone in the business of defining terms has been warned of this word. it's a hellish threat to any future semantics.

/ it may be the only justification of grammar nazis and those who feel compelled to deal with semantics. for the dread fear that this might happen to another word.

Did you look at any of those actual links, as opposed to the Google definition? Oxford says the second usage "is not considered part of standard English," and it's not given as a definition by Mirriam-Webster, American Heritage, Random House, or the World English Dictionary (those last two are according to Dictionary.com). And it's not in my paper OED, but that's a couple of editions old.

This could very well be the case. I've taken plenty of cars since my company pays for one if you have to work very late (which is a daily occurence during our busy times). Even though the drivers are randomly assigned each night in my case, there are a couple of drivers that I'm at least familiar with. I couldn't give you details on a price for that kind of retainer though.

"If he wants to give it to the bums, he can give it to the bums."


Well that's a great attitude, lady. Those "bums" are human beings. I think I can see why the two of you didn't get along, and you dumped him. Sounds like he was lucky you did.

Stiffed ex-wife? Seriously? Is there anyone on the planet that thinks the ex-wife should get anything?
 
2012-01-30 11:48:33 AM
"He could fark a nun."

Does this mean he was capable of nun-farking and suggesting that he did, on occasion, enjoin in sexual congress with a nun or nuns? After all, she goes on to point out he's deceased so surely he could not be a post-mortem nun-farker. I am confuse.
