örümcek deliği [a] spider hole -- a primitive 6-8 foot deep ventilated hole in the ground used for hiding a fugitiveIn the news: 14-15 December 2003... Saddam Hüseyin -- the man who once promised the 'Mother of all battles' in defense of Baghdad and who swore never to be taken alive -- was found in dishevelled condition today hiding in a spider hole near his hometown of Tikrit.

ÖSS Öğrenci Seçme Sınavı -- Student Placement Examination...a student's results on this exam determine if he/she may or may not enter Turkish University after successfully graduating 'High School'. Exam results also go a long way in determining which course of study he/she may pursue and at which University he/she may pursue it. Since there's only room in Turkish Universities for about 30% of graduating highschoolers these days, the stressful preparations (in the form of expensive special ÖSS after-school training classes and tutoring) for this exam begin in middle-school and dog students every step of the way through highschool -- until the fateful day of the exam.

She has appealed to Turkish-government authorities (whom she blames in large part for her impoverishment) for them to put her to death by merciful leathal injection. Gözcü Gazetesi, 24 February 2005 (See photo-article below.)
ÖTV Özel Tüketici Vergi -- Special Consumer Tax... is a taxation vehicle used by the AKP during 2003-2005 to foster it's religious beliefs on the public morality. The teetotaling and anti-smoking AKP have tried to use excessive taxation to reduce the public's consumption of alcohol and tobacco, but the sin-tax policy has been an abject failure.
