SPLITTING THE UPRIGHTS: when you're walking on the sidewalk toward two men having a conversation who, presumably in order to emphasize their heterosexuality (?), make room for you to pass not by moving as a pair to one side or the other, but by stepping *away* from each other, so you must walk between them. considered an omen of good luck

"So when we sleep and we have an empty stomach then the activity, the contractile activity of our gut changes to a very unique pattern. It’s a 90-minute cycle, very powerful waves of contractions migrate from the esophagus all the way down to the end of our large intestine. And they move very slowly. So this has been referred to as the intestinal housekeeper that sort of cleans the gut from any residue that’s present."

The notion of using the Greek noun oneiros (meaning "dream") to form the English adjective "oneiric" wasn't dreamed up until the mid-19th century. But back in the early 1600s, linguistic dreamers came up with a few "oneiros" spin-offs, giving English "oneirocriticism," "oneirocritical," and "oneirocritic" (each referring to dream interpreters or interpretation).
