so, did the word whiplash get applied to the neck injury before or after Snidley came along?  Was the word invented for Snidley?

Way before Snidely, it was a medical term

so, did the word whiplash get applied to the neck injury before or after Snidley came along?  Was the word invented for Snidley?

Not sure. I did love me some Rocky and Bullwinkle. Mr. Peabody also.

Pretty sure the word was invented for hitting something with a whip.
Flog him. 40 lashes.

As usual the GDT was educational.

per dictionary.com:

"1570s, "the lash of a whip," from whip (n.) + lash (n.). The injury caused by sudden head motion so called by 1955, in reference to the notion of moving to and fro like a cracking whip. The verb in this sense is recorded by 1971."

Snidely came after the term was used for the injury by about 5 years.

Not as much, for they weren't quite as dramatic - or didn't give me ideas on how to torment my sisters like Snidely did

Man. I had to leave where I was, and listened to the end of the game in the car. By the time I got home the curly W was already posted. This is a tough crowd...

Oh MG. I hope you didn't tie them up to the rails.

I did not want to incur the wrath of N2P, who says it is bad mojo to wait too long to post the :w:

(1) The challenge, the password, and wow

Going up the escalator at CitiField, we noticed an older couple -- about ten years older than me -- and he was wearing a Nats away cap.

He: "Harmon Killebrew"

Me: "Roy Sievers"

He: "Camilo Pascual"

He: "I hope you will root especially hard for number 62. He's our grand-son. Sean..."

Me: "Of course! Please say hello for all of us at the Nats Fan Forum"

(2) Murphy looms

Tenth inning. Met fan next to us has been explaining baseball to his girl-friend. "I think Murphy's going to hit one 415 feet." Murphy hits the ball off the big apple apparatus in CF. Met fans, and there are many, in anguish. Nat fans, scattered everywhere, stand, cheer, wave to each other.

(3) "M-E-T-S...Mets Mets Woo!"

Yes, a block of orange-shirted Met fans in CF keep it up all game.

(4) Werth spots the red, plus "hiss" and "pop"

When Werth finishes an inning with a baseball, he looks for Nats fans and tosses them the ball. Incidentally, Werth made two sliding catches heading toward the line, just in front of us. Werth folding his legs, glove a few inches above the grass, the sizzle of the line-drive streaking past, the "pop" of ball into Werth's glove. Reminds me, again, of the difference between a major-leaguer and the rest of us who played baseball for fun.
