- Phrases like "Tornadic activity." It's either a tornado or not a tornado. There is no in between! If it's tornadic activity, IT'S A FUCKING TORNADO!!!
Not fucking so, O binary one. There's quite a range of activity, meteorologically and fluid-dynamically speaking, between "no tornado" and "tornado" (including the sort of activity which could become a full-fledged tornado at any moment.) The word wasn't coined in 1884 solely for the purpose of making you and "tornadic activity" is a perfectly valid and legitimate term.
The motto of the Corbettite Order seems to be Ite Animose... a Latin phrase that can be translated as "go courageously." Alternatively, it can be rendered as "boldly go," which bears a striking resemblance to a phrase heard during the opening credits of a certain popular television series.
