Nefarious Napping – It’s not just NapStealing Anymore

Department of scandinavian languages

Image via Wikipedia

According to World Wide Words, there are many uses of the word nap, including gnome-napping, kidnapping, dognapping, data-napping, art-napping), kegnapping), space-napping, and even headnapping. The common thread is that napping is synomymous with stealing. This is why napstealing is so nefarious, because it combines two thieving terms into one evil concept, Nefarious NapStealing.

The original, kidnapping, came about in the seventeenth century combined kid with nap, which is a word meaning to grab, snatch or seize and is very similar to nab, which may be Scandinavian. The other meaning of nap means a short sleep {taken|seized} or {snatched|grabbed} in the middle of something else. Hence, the terms power-napping, dognapping and catnapping.

Therefore, the nefarious term napstealing is worst of all because it is actual vile nap-napping.

  2. Picky,

    Thanks for providing that information from World Wide Words. I accept that I am guilty of willful ignorance, and have updated the post to reflect the information you shared.

    On the OED, I would say that I was suggesting more that it was ignoring rather than falsifying its findings, mostly because, as I said, the entry on beyond the pale really go beyond dismissing the incorrect etymology, which I found surprising given that the OED is almost always excellent about drilling down as deep as it can, or at least saying “we know the origin of this word” when they hit bottom. But yes, it a justified accusation.

    Thanks for setting me straight!

  7. I agree, I think more of a problem of attempting to connect a massive amount of history to two Crusades-era factions and Ancient Astronaut theory. The original game was more about showing two different philosophies, control and choice, while the 2nd turns it into a more good vs. evil concept. I mean, it gets really silly when you realize that in canon the Templars George Bush and the Assassins backed Al Gore in the 2000 American election.

  15. buchitoyac fjori says:

    I have never understood why it is automatically considered first degree murder, when one takes the life of a police officer. Why should their lives be held at a higher value than everybody lives? All life is valuable and classifying this type of murder as automatically first degree is highly discriminatory and unacceptable, in my opinion. I like the though. Very concise and straight forward.

    “Account for that”? Not quite. Klerusblatt is Bavaria. La Civilta Cattolica is in the Vatican. There are other Germans. In fact, the common thread is that they are all in Nazi occupied territory. Why Pius reprimand them? Why did they keep publishing? Why did Vatican offices become a pipeline of safe conduct for Nazis to the west. These are all aspects of the Pius problem.

Thanks for these comments, guys. been away for the past few days and had a chance to respond, but the common thread seems to be that there is no common thread; we each responded to different things where school was concerned, and recognize that others also responded to different things than we did.

    not defending the police, staying that the problems are not due to police officers being former members of the military and that you provided any evidence to the contrary.

    Do you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Frank? If so, just go in and get the surgery done. I had it for 15 years before I had it done.

After surgery, I was happy that I have a bad foot, because I could then kick my own ass as to why I was so stubborn to have surgery. all OK now. Surgery was the best thing I ever did…I could even sleep at night…and all those years, I thought I had a sleep disorder. It was actually my wrists keeping me up.
