1. Genius- a genius is a person who successfully applies a previously unknown technique in the
production of a work of art, science or calculation, or who masters and personalizes a known
technique. A genius typically possesses great intelligence or remarkable abilities in a specific
subject, or shows an exceptional natural capacity of intellect and/or ability, especially in the
production of creative and original work, something that has never been seen or evaluated
previously. Traits often associated with genius include strong individuality, imagination, uniqueness,
and innovative drive.

2. Clochard- A Clochard is dry-stone hut with a corbelled roof, dating from the early Middle Ages or
earlier. Most archaeologists think these structures were built on the southwestern coast of Ireland
since the Bronze Age. They are most commonly round beehive huts, but rectangular plans are known
as well. Most experts think that the rectangular footprints date to a later era. Some Clochard are not
completely built of stone, but may have possessed a thatched roof. The walls are very thick, up to 1.5
meters.
3...Congestion- It is thought to have been a Roman settlement, and in 1272 it received its charter to
hold fairs and markets. King Edward I granted permission to build a mill. Congestion became an
important centre of textile production, especially lace and leather gloves. The neighboring village of
Bug Lawton was incorporated into Congestion borough in 1936. Since April 1, 1974, Congestion
borough has covered much of south-east Cheshire.

4. Aggress-. The current consensus in the scientific community is that there are least two broad
categories of aggression: hostile, affective, or retaliatory aggression versus instrumental, predatory,
or goal-oriented aggression.[2][3][4][5] Empirical research indicates that there is a critical difference
between the two, both psychologically and physiologically. Some research indicates that people with
tendencies toward affective aggression have lower IQs than those with tendencies toward predatory
aggression.[2]. If only considering physical aggression, males tend to be more aggressive than
females.

5. Shunpike- The term shunpike comes from the word shun, meaning "to avoid", and pike, a term
referring to turnpikes, which were roads which required payment of a toll to travel on them.[1] People
who often avoid toll roads sometimes call themselves shunpikes.

Shunpike has also come to mean an avoidance of major highways (regardless of tolls) in preference
for bucolic and scenic interludes along lightly traveled country roads.

For some, practice of shunpike involved a form of boycott of tolls (rather than just
avoidance of them for financial reasons) by taking another route, perhaps slower,
longer, or under poorer road conditions.

6. Disabuse- Disability is a lack of ability relative to a personal or group standard or
norm. In reality there is often simply a spectrum of ability. Disability may involve
physical impairment, sensory impairment, cognitive or intellectual impairment, mental
disorder (also known as psychiatric or psychosocial disability), or various types of
chronic disease. A disability may occur during a person's lifetime or may be present
from birth.
