Created as a verb based on a single sentence in a Robert Heinlein book. I changed it to a noun to fit how it was actually used, but I still have doubts as to whether it meets CFI in any form. Chuck Entz (talk) 01:33, 12 May 2012 (UTC)
- Oddly, the version of the sentence in our entry is very different from the version in my copy of the book, which is also the version that RuakhTALK 01:59, 12 May 2012 (UTC) pulls up (in two different editions, neither of which is the same edition as my copy). I can't decide if our entry used a genuinely different version, or if the contributor did a shockingly bad job copying the quotation, or what. But either way . . . The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress might count as a well-known work; but then, if this is the only place that the term appears, then it probably counts as a term originating in a fictional universe? And technically the quotation is structured as a mention rather than a use, but it's an extremely use-y mention. —
