English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. uncontrollable

    Rebellious signifies being in a state of rebellion (see REBELLION under REVOLUTION), and is even extended to inanimate things that resist control or adaptation to human use. Ungovernable applies to that which successfully defies authority and power; unmanageable to that which resists the utmost exercise of skill or of skill and power combined; rebellious, to that which is defiant of authority, whether successfully or unsuccessfully; seditious, to that which partakes of or tends to excite a rebellious spirit, seditious suggesting more of covert plan, scheming, or conspiracy, rebellious more of overt act or open violence. While the unmanageable or ungovernable defies control, the rebellious or seditious may be forced to submission; as, the man has an ungovernable temper; the horses became unmanageable; he tamed his rebellious spirit. Insubordinate applies to the disposition to resist and resent control as such; mutinous, to open defiance of authority, especially in the army, navy, or merchant marine. A contumacious act or spirit is contemptuous as well as defiant. Compare OBSTINATE; REVOLUTION.

My libido burns with wild unbridled passion. The erotic energy of your body inflames my ardor, and I feel an uncontrollable attraction. Wow, how sexy. From you, the potency increases a thousand times, looking at you guys cease to be gay. From you a geyser of libido, and a waterfall of spermotoxicosis. A passion grenade exploded in your pants. You are an obsession and an obsession, even hypnosis will not help get you out of my thoughts. I am ready to pray all my life that you will become my wife.

All this is your record sexuality and ability to conquer the heart at the speed of light. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
