This app offers an offline version of "Dictionary of Received Ideas" or "Dictionary of Accepted Ideas".
The dictionary is a short satirical work collected and published in 1911–13 from notes compiled by Gustave Flaubert. It takes the form of a dictionary of automatic thoughts and platitudes, self-contradictory and insipid.
ABSINTHE. Extra-violent poison: one glass and you're dead. Newspapermen drink it as they write their copy. Has killed more soldiers than the Bedouin.
ARCHIMEDES. On hearing his name, shout "Eureka!" Or else: "Give me a fulcrum and I will move the world." There is also Archimedes' screw, but you are not expected to know what it is.
FEUDALISM. No need to have one single precise notion about it: thunder against.
CZAR. Pronounce Tsar, and from time to time, Autocrat.
