Berk or burk
(british) a stupid person or fool,
shortened from Berkeley or Berkshire hunt,
rhyming slang for cunt
while berke (verb) means:
1.to murder, as by suffocation, to leave no or few marks of violence.
2.to suppress or get rid of by some indirect maneuver.
ley means law in spanish
protective shelter (the lee of the rock gave us protection from the storm)
a pewter made of 80%tin and 20%lead (from aley, obsolete of alloy)
a leu (literally, lion): the coin and monetary unit of Romania, equal to 100 bani
but wait, there's more:
ley also means, arable land put down to grass (grassland or pastureland)
used in "ley line", a line joining two prominent points in a landscape.
and of course don't forget URKEL!
kele means "to cool" (obsolete, from Chaucer). Brr. kele.
BER stands for Bit Error Rate, which means:
the fraction of a message or block of data which is wrong.
(such as, what is the BER of Christianity?)
I like the meanings of Berkeley as
-shelter from stupidity
-shelter from cunning murderous violence
of course, there's also (George) Berkeley himself: link; (wikipedia)
