English:  Butterfly - [Old English buttorfleoge, evidently
butter (n.) + fly (n.), but of obscure signification. Perhaps based
                            on the old notion that the insects (or witches disguised as butterflies) consume butter or milk that is left
                            uncovered. Or, less creatively, simply because the pale yellow color of many species' wings suggests
                            the color of butter. Another theory connects it to the color of the insect's excrement, based on Dutch
                            cognate boterschijte. An overview of words for "butterfly" in various languages can be found here.

   Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta – Founders and Co-owners of the cage fighting (see In a Hole, Trump's Reality) phenomenon Zuffa, an Italian word for 'fight', 'brawl' (see Confused Warriors), which is a sports promotion company founded in 2001 that owns the Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC), World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), World Fighting Alliance (WFA), and PRIDE Fighting Championships. They are the Chairmen and CEOs of Station Casinos in Las Vegas (see Mad Money). Station Casinos are among the largest gaming companies in Las Vegas. Lorenz and Frank Fertita are now part of a Discovery and Travel channel reality TV show called American Casino (see Drunken Times). Cage fighting is a barbaric sport because it
allows fighters to hit opponents when they are knocked down.You are not suppose to hit someone when they are down. Much of the UFC is based on a sick Schsdenfreude. Those who profit from this throwback to the days of gladiators are whores, much like those who profit from guns, drugs, and other opportubistic overly-lenient/liberal phenomenons.

“What is causing the quarrels and FIGHTS among you? Isn’t it because there is a whole army of evil desires within you?  You want what you don’t have, so you kill to get it. You long for what others have, and can’t afford it, so you start a FIGHT to take it away from them….you only want what gives you PLEASURE.”   James 4:1
