@JanusBahsJacquet Yeah, that's true, it'd require context.

This isn't correct, RAY is asking for a slang term for the person, not the action. "He's a stand up" doesn't make any sense.

comment Word a male can use to refer to a female that is not old or young (girl/lady/woman)
Or no context: "I met (with) someone today, she told me The Hobbit was a terrible book."

Calling someone a flake is also appropriate: "Jack is such a flake."

comment Should we use plural or singular for a fraction of a mile?
"Point two five of a mile" seems a bit more awkward than "Point two five miles"

comment “Y'all” or “ya'll”?
Ya'll could be a contraction of ya all, since ya is sometimes used in place of you.

comment What is the meaning of “greasing the pan”?
Further elaboration: When you cook things on a pan, you generally grease/oil/butter up the pan first to make sure whatever you cook doesn't stick.

I like it, I was just thinking of "xenotoxin" but yours seems more of a marketable term, if such a thing did exist. Thanks!

@MarkBeadles, You're right about the suffix, but I think the stem is rodent- with the connective vowel -i-.

But what I am trying to convey is a physical thing, whereas genocide and xenocide aren't.
