retromingent - an animal that pisses backwards. eg. a cow

I also just learnt that the translation of the latin name for the common dustmite is skin eating feather lover.

Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus

That might even be true.

Retromingent: Urinating backwards. Also an animal such as a raccoon that urinates backwards. As in: "You have revealed yourself as a miserable, carping, retromingent vigilante, and I for one am sick of wasting my time communicating with you" (Benjamin C. Bradlee, Editor, The Washington Post). From the Latin retro- (back) + mingent from mingere (to urinate).

MOO: The MOO programming language is a programming language used to support the MOO system. It is a dynamically typed prototype based object oriented system, with syntax roughly derived from the Algol programming language school of programming languages.

I'd sure like to read the editorial that included that sentence by Ben Bradlee.

Very nice thread for this dump.

Pissing backwards is bad for your trousers

FACT-

Retromingents who like their shoes favour strong winds coming from behind

Is this where the word 'minge' is derived from then?

Semi-serious question.

It must be. Has anyone ever heard of a better explanation?

Pissing forward isn't good either. Unless you unzip first.

I was wondering that.

I guess retromingent comes from the word minge. But that's just wild speculation.
