Enough bull

This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera’s career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. Even grievously wounded by picadors, he did not attack this man.
Torrero Munera is quoted as saying of this moment: “And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”

Good words to have

Null: Having no legal or binding force : invalid.  TheEnglish borrowed null from the Anglo-French nul, meaning "not any." That word, in turn, traces to the Latin word nullus, fromne-, meaning "not," and ullus, meaning "any."

Intractable:  Not easily handled, managed, or controlled. From Latin tractare (to handle), frequentative of trahere (draw). 

Word power

Quidnunc: A person who seeks to know all the latest news or gossip : busybody

Dour: Sullen; severe; gloomy; stubborn.  Probably from Latin durus (hard). Earliest documented use: 1425.

Omnipotent: Having virtually unlimited authority or influence. Ultimately derives from the Latin prefix omni-, meaning "all," and the word potens, meaning "potent." The omni- prefix has also given us similar words such as omniscient (meaning "all-knowing") and omnivorous (describing an animal that eats both plants and other animals). Although omnipotent is used in general contexts to mean "all-powerful" (as in "an omnipotent warlord"), its original applications in English referred specifically to the power held by an almighty God. The word has been used as an English adjective since the 14th century; since 1600 it has also been used as a noun referring to one who is omnipotent.
