scoundrel
 - bengel (deutsch)
   -bastard
     -good for nothing
      -a very wicked person

Thus it would follow, as the result of acute consciousness,
      that one is not to blame in being a scoundrel,
           as though that were any consolation
                to the scoundrel once he has
                   come to realize that he
                          actually is a
                            scoundrel.

 Gnomic 

     a gnomic remark is brief and seems wise
           but is difficult to understand

Fasciculation

Involuntary contractions or twitchings of groups of muscle fibers. Fasciculations can occur in normal individuals as a result of illness, such as muscle cramps, nerve diseases, and metabolism imbalances.

Kana bitawng pangirogan ka unja morag naay unod nga magdagan-dagan; kasagaran kujog ni sa panlimbawot sa balhibo. Kon masobrahan, posible nga mabugtoan og kwerdas ang hingtungdan. ;D
