Hussites marching on the Prague Town Hall defenestrate (throw from windows to splatter down below) the Catholic city government, replacing them with a system of four Captains.

In what is later called the "Defenestration of Prague," three men representing the soon-to-be Emperor Ferdinand II are thrown from a window in the Hradshin Palace by Protestant noblemen. Luckily for the imperial emissaries, they land on a large pile of trash and survive. But when the Catholic Ferdinand assumes the throne the following year, all hell breaks loose in Europe, starting with Bohemia. Thus begins the horrific religious conflict that comes to be known as the Thirty Years War. It is generally agreed that the war set back the continent a full century.

I would very much like to defenestrate people who insist on taking completely unintended offense on behalf of the whole of Christianity for your mockery of such statements as, say, THIS:
everything in the bible is historically true highly accurate and backed up both scientifically and by just plain usuing common sense.
Especially after you have told them and told them until you are blue in the face that you're making fun of the person they THEMSELVES have called extremist . . . NOT their religion as a whole.
It's a good thing that, when arguing with people who have decided simply not to listen to me, I sort of know when to stop.

Such a resonant word 'defenestrate'
I was introduced to this word by the excellent play 'Accidental Death of an Anarchist' by Dario Fo, in which the Anarchist of the title has been 'defenestrated' before the play begins, from the fourth floor of a police station. The rest of the play deals with a character with the appelation 'Maniac', who infiltrates the police station and uncovers the truth, in a hilariously round-about way.
So that's how I learnt the word.

It shall be two or three stories. The bodies will hit soft grass... slighty muddy so they sink in a bit. So that it will have some give to it. (I don't want to have to clean up a big mess.) I just want to get the point across. You know how that goes. No broken appendages or much blood. Too excessive for my tastes. To hear the scream before they hit is enough for me.
Here are some examples:
Probably is NOT spelled prabably. It's spelled right not rite. IT'S TOMORROW, not tomarrow. Please use atleast some punctuation and grammar skills. Show that you are educated. Spend some time constructing sentences. It shows the person you are are thinking before you type. lol should be shot on site. NO ONE IS LAUGHING. It's also definitely not definately.
OH! This is off topic. One of my other favorite words is:
floccinaucinihilipilification - n. - the estimation of nil.
After a severe case of binge drinking, Tom's brain mass was reduced to floccinaucinihilipilification.
