Creative uses of the word 'significant'

Mr Haesler also said the 18-year sentence was manifestly excessive.
"The Gosling Park incident appears to take place over less than one hour," he told the court.
"There was no significant harm caused to the complainant. No significant physical injury."


I'm so pleased we can now use the word 'significant' in this way. I plan on thinking of many highly insignificant ways of harming a particular barrister. As long as it lasts for under an hour he couldn't possibly have a case against me.

Hah! The possibilities of "significant" are now endless!

Revenge at last....*evol grins* (but all tempered into nothingness by humanity, integrity, honesty, empathy etc.)

I'll find a way I can use it without compromising myself :)

Wonder if they'd think no "significant" harm had been done if the gangrape had been done to a male?
