Common Assertions in Cieran

Caution: Thrown Exceptions May Occur!

The following are some well known terms and phrases used by Cieran Entities to throw insults, also known as Assertions. Entities are cautious to use these at their own risk since some are more fragile than others, which can cause disruptive meltdowns that hinder the daily workflow of the System.  
Warning! Throwing an Assertion may cause another to throw an Exception. Play nice or you may suffer a forced cease and desist!
