If so, this user is known for a high volume of edits, and a generally low level of lexicographic skill. (I cringe in anticipation of the ensuing crapflood of poor-quality work that will need to be sorted through and cleaned up.) -- Eiríkr Útlendi │ Tala við mig 20:26, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
The one supportable def remains (strong stare) - the "missile man" seems to have been a massive leap, for sure, so the ones derived backwards from it seemed eminently removeable. Collect (talk) 09:15, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
- Um, the whole entry? This is a widely used phrase and the one remaining definition seems spot on to me. It is easily citable, see this gbooks search. SpinningSpark 14:41, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
