Noun: 1) A category that brings about feelings of camaraderie, showcases the best achievements of humankind (past, present, and even future), and essentially includes anything that makes readers feel The Warm Fuzzies in their cold, cynical hearts.
2) Regarded as the common cause of a little tickle in the nose, a small tear in the eye, and a twinge of faith in one’s fellow man somewhere deep in one’s chest. Doctors recommend you do not be shy away from these symptoms, but instead embrace them as you would a snuggly dog or perhaps a small heated towel of some kind.
3) Cheaper than a psychologist. Less nosy, too.
