Definition of the day: "terrorist"

A terrorist is someone who uses homicide as public relations, and is stupid enough to think this makes their cause look good.

I....cannot for the life of me think of a better definition. Nailed it.

Thank you.

I admit I kind of love it when one of those "let's see you THIS!" types challenges me to define something. They think you can't do it, is the weird thing!

In my experience, usually people know what they mean by a horrible word. Even if they can't define it - they know it pretty strong, pretty clear. A little effort and precision and bam.

Yet how petty it is to take such pleasures in words, when what the word refers to is so wrong and dumb it shouldn't even exist as a concept.
