It all started here in 2001, at a little site called LiveJournal. Remember those heady days, when there was no Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, or Friendster? Heck, the whole blogosphere wasn't happening yet.
We've come a long way, baby.
Zeitheist now appears at Twitter, "to test your Twitter trend knowledge" -who doesn't need this? Priceless!
In my feeble mind, zeitheist always meant "stealing time." As it turns out, I was mistaken. According to an intrepid verbalist at addictionary.com, it has a far more dire (and amusing) connotation:
noun, The jerk that takes up a handicapped parking space without a tag and who is obviously not handicapped.
USAGE zeitheist means blatant disregard for the law in combination with thoughtless self-indulgence - both have become the spirit of the times.
SYNONYMS handijacker, lazy-parker, tresparker, infiltraturd, SPACE-INVADERS, Impajerk, heel on wheels, handifaker, Handi-jerk, handicrap
We have a connection to 9/11, to wit:
yes, zeitheist.... it's a heist of many hungry minds away from truth with the use of a dusty old cracker.
And... ZeitHeist The Motion Picture!
At this rate, world domination is but a few short years away. You read it here first!
