 Topical Words: Dangerous
The parent word danger comes ultimately from the Latin dominus, which is the origin of a fine ragbag of modern English words that includes domain, dungeon, don, dame, dome, and dominion.
The first meaning of danger in the thirteenth century was closely allied to this last word; it referred to the jurisdiction or power of a lord or master, particularly his ability to hurt or harm somebody.
This derived directly from the then new sense of danger and, in fact, the first recorded appearance of both danger and dangerous in their modern senses occur in early printed works by Caxton.

 Llewellyn Encyclopedia: Can Astral Projection Be Dangerous?
We have seen what happens when the astral body separates momentarily from the physical body; we have traveled around the world, into other realms with it; we have followed it to the moment of death and beyond.
Some people fear that while their astral bodies are off somewhere else, an evil entity of some sort—an earthbound spirit or a demon—will take possession of their bodies, and when the astral body returns, it will find that its "home" has been occupied in its absence.
In a more reasonable moment, though, Fox concedes, "Very likely these experiments are no more dangerous than motoring." In point of fact, they are safer—astral bodies don’t get maimed and crushed in collisions with physical objects.

 Armed and Dangerous Impressions - Xbox News at GameSpot   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Following LucasArts' announcement of Armed and Dangerous earlier today, we made sure we were among the first people to see the Xbox version of the game in action when we paid a visit to the company's E3 booth.
Described by the LucasArts representative conducting our demo as an action action game (no, that's not a typo), Armed and Dangerous very much focuses on over-the-top weapons, over-the-top special effects, overly destructible environments, and--in the case of one of the levels we were shown--an overwhelming number of enemies.
The visuals in the Xbox version of Armed and Dangerous looked solid enough, but they certainly didn't suggest that the game will be a good one for showing off the power of your console when it's released toward the end of this year.

At first glance, DANGEROUS LIAISONS appears to be an extravagant eighteenth-century period-piece, which it is; the powdered wigs and overflowing corsets typical of the genre are all here, and the cinematography is appropriately glossy.
She perfectly captured the different stages of the character's development from the harmless, righteous woman to her struggles to the advances of the Vicomte and eventually of her own feelings, to finally surrendering and allowing herself be part of that "dangerous liaison" and finally to being heartbroken of how that liaison concluded.
The two movies, `Dangerous Liaisons' directed by Stephen Frears and `Valmont', directed by Milos Forman are a real anomoly in that they were released at almost exactly the same time and tell almost exactly the same story, based on an old novel, `Les Liaisons Dangeruese' by Choderlos de Laclos.

 Hidden & Dangerous 2 Impressions - PC News at GameSpot   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
What's pretty unique about the Hidden and Dangerous games is that you can quickly switch control between the four team members, and even pause the game and go into a strategy mode where you issue commands for each team member to carry out autonomously.
Hidden and Dangerous 2 encourages stealth over gung-ho action, so you'll be able to search your dead enemies for items and take their uniforms for your own use.
Despite that omission, Hidden and Dangerous 2 is shaping up to be a promising squad-level action game and should be a great change of pace for fans of military-style shooters.

This is a dangerous mix of bad foreign policy and bad theology.
