I heard someone use the term "melt down" the other day. They were referring to a car I think. Anyway, it sounded very out of place with the issues going on in Japan. I believe it hit them right after they said it. The term has entered the lexicon of exaggeration. When there is a real catastrophe in progress, it sticks out a bit too much. I will personally refrain from using it for a while. Now that I've heard it in use, it is just too distracting.
Cowboy Ninga Viking. Yup.
