It is a term to describe a meek and down trodden person who has had enough and turns on her agressors and becomes the strong one. I think it might have been a book title originally. It would have been nice if you'd rated it "no vote" instead of "boring" if you didn;t understand it.

fwiw, i didn't vote on this teaser. but don't you think it's reasonable for someone to think a teaser is boring if it seems obscure to them and to vote accordingly?

Personally speaking no. If I don't understand something I don't find it boring, I find it interesting when I find the answer. I appreciate you not voting BlueTwo, but I can see by this popularity rating that people have been voting negatively because they don't undertand it. I suppose thats their perogative.
