Urbandictionary: Our Heroes

Yes, the company that helped you learn the meaning of a Donkey Punch and a Dirty Sanchez, is our paradigm. Our template. Our exemplar. Our archetype. (This could go on for a while, we’re an SAT vocab company, remember?) Anyway, we’ve had a long, often salacious love affair with Urbandictionary not only because it’s made us seem smart at dinner parties (well, those basement parties at college with those red plastic cups with abspetos falling into them), but because it believes in people. Power to the people much? Sure.  Urbandictionary, we’ve found, is elegant in its democratic parsimony: it provides a framework for interaction where you make up a word and definition, and the world votes it up or down, and viola, may the best Definition Whore win!

So, we were psyched to see this profile of Mr. Aaron Peckham, Urbandictionary’s founder. A million visitors a day? Keep up the good work, brother Aaron.

  1. A wager on a sport “tonight” is not thought-about a future guess, nonetheless a guess 카지노사이트 positioned in August predicting the winner of the pro soccer championship held in February is taken into account a future guess. The NBA has been in Canada since 1995, when the Raptors and Vancouver Grizzlies joined the league as expansion teams. The Grizzlies ended up relocating to Memphis, however the Raptors have been a hugely successful franchise, even profitable the NBA Championship in 2019.
