smithy a place where things are made from iron by heating them up to a temperature sufficient for the iron to be shaped and manipulated. The name of the person that does the work is a smith, hence the surname Smith. There are still smithies in operation and the son of one of our old friends has a smithy in West Cornwall.

iatrogenesis ... can also kill, if you have the misfortune to be treated by an unqualified person pretending to be a doctor or nurse, since it means disease caused unintentionally by incompetent treatment

kerfuffle ... over the F-35 carrier fighter variant not being able to land on carriers because of problems with its arrestor hook design?

ho-hum, one can simulate instead! (though even that is probably neither dull, boring nor routine, I guess)

umpteen ... of these "all singing, all dancing" F-35's will no doubt be UK- bound in due course, but will any of them be carrier variants, since recent history indicates we probably won't have any carriers by then anyway, all having been either scrapped or sold abroad even before they are launched! That super simulator might be the closest that fixed-wing navy pilots get to actually achieving deck landings on RN vessels!

ahamkara - the individual self (as in the Vedas). About ego and egoism.

Examples of ahaṃkāra in action:
  • Consider how an otherwise sensible young man might feel that his new sports car was a reflection of his true self and this would encourage him to race his car recklessly against another person's car.
  • Similarly, consider how someone who believed in the fight for peace, and who ordinarily might behave in a non-violent manner, might come to blows with someone who threatened or challenged his notions of peace.
In both cases, the mind has created a state of illusion, but it seems very real to the person in that state, and objectivity and reality are obscured. This deeply illusory state is what can often cause people to do the strangest, oddest things. [Wi]
