I heard this talked about on a news program, I think CNN. The announcer asked what were people reading that had the word "defenestration" in it, which means thrown out the window, he did not explain that. I looked it up. There are a couple of websites out there using the word. One of them is a swap shop type of website. What are you throwing out your window, others can have it.
