comment What does “campy” mean?
I generally am not a huge fan of answers that just jump straight to an unelaborated dictionary entry. Even the OED I find quite wrong on occasion. However, in this case the NTC one is far closer to the mark than the accepted answer (from the reliably unreliable UD). The important piece of info you won't find in either is that definition 3 above is the one most in use today.

comment Is there a word or phrase to describe the aging of graphics technology?
@supercat - If you're interested in the VCS (2600), I'd encourage reading up on the father of the VCS, the Atari 8-bit computers, and the Amiga: Jay Miner. A true unsung hero of the electronic revolution, he got an entire generation of kids into computers, the result of which is the world we live in today (for better or worse). He deserves to be better known.

comment When and where did the exclamation “Snap!” originate?
@fredsbend - I highly suspect that one is independent as well. I'd almost added a sentence as such to the answer (but its long enough already).

In case you're curious, yes I was totally the playground patsy at The Dozens.

comment “Something to the rescue!” vs “Something for the rescue” — which one is correct?
@AndrewLeach - Perhaps technically. But I'd argue even there it should be "for a rescue" instead. Better yet, "his/her rescue. There are many uses of "the" that are technically correct by any reasonable rule linguists have been able to devise, but are still never used. (or worse yet, used in some dialects, but not others)

comment “Something to the rescue!” vs “Something for the rescue” — which one is correct?
@AndrewLeach - That's still not the phrase I'd expect to hear in that situation. (More like: "to save them")
