For those curious about the exact definition of "Eeno"

This will be placed in the link list for quick reference for you all and any other people mutually added to my friends list...

You all might have heard me use the term Eeno on myself when I talk about my work and some of what happens to me or what I have to do there...I was going to link directly to the page


I had the most difficult time finding a definition...the Urban Dictionary didn't have it, none of the online dicitonaries had it, I googled all over and after a deep search I found the exact movie (thought it was "Body and Soul" but it was actually "The Enemy Within") and found a script for that movie.

Below is the part of the script that describes the Eeno sub-race/sub-culture of the Tectonese from the movie/TV show/TV movies Alien Nation

excerpt one

(parched whisper)
{We'll never get out!}
Keel's reeva flet tus!

Gayle rolls a drum beneath the grate to stand on.

{Come on!}

From down the tunnel, they hear the RUNNING FOOTSTEPS of their pursuers.

{I can't!}
Na nakt!

{You've got to! They'll do it to you next!}
Vots't fa ot! Om ut to ot vots zen!

{But we're the "Unclean" we can't live out there!}
Sto kee-p see "Sheehan" - kee nakt enin tus owa!
except 2

The two pursuers spot their prey.


Turning back, Gayle sees them. she runs to a NEWCOMER MOTHER and child.

{Help me! Please!}
Flask ros! Seela!

(clutching her child to her)
Get away from me!

As her pursuers rush toward her, Gayle turns frantically to a NEWCOMER MAN.

{Please help me!}
Seela plask ros!

(raising his hand to slap her)
Filthy Eeno.
excerpt 3
Get help for God's sakes! Do something!

Rushing to Gayle's body, the Driver cradles her.

...It'll be all right. Don't try to move.

The First Pursuer tugs at his partner's arm. The two of them retreat.

...It'll be all right.



her eyes roll back into her head as she goes limp and dies.


GASPS. She looks up in horror at the Newcomers who haven't moved.

What's the matter with you people?! She's dead...she's dead! Why didn't you help her!?

Expressionless, they stare at her a moment before turning their backs.
excerpt 4

Hey, guys, come on, let me in on this.
(still no response)
Look, this is a police investigation. What's the story with these Eenos? Cathy?

...On the ship, they performed the lowest tasks - they were responsible for disposing of all refuse - garbage, bodily wastes, biological hazards...corpses

Yeah, so?

They had to feed themselves from that waste... Sometimes, when there was nothing else...they were forced to eat the dead.

They were cannibals, Matt. Cannibals. That's why you've never heard of the Eenos. They're our shame.

Okay, well, they were slaves, right? They didn't have a lot choice.


Now I know that it's not that bad for ME and it would never be that bad...but from my experience (and I know it's probably worse fot those worse off than I am) but there's a lot of times when I have been made to do things that no one else wants to do like it always seems that I'M the only one that picks up the trash off the parking lot and out of the trashcans by the door...when I come back to work from the weekend, sometimes there's like a buttload of trash on the parking lot as if there was NOONE that did that job the whole weekend!

Today when I was "doing the lot" I noticed one door trashcan was so full of trash that people had put trash on the ash tray top and I had to make multiple trips to the dumpster to dispose of it all...even if I put it all in my little sack I had to make multiple trips.

I've also been made ("asked") to go and mop up crap or clean a spill or any other stuff at times when someone else would have been able to do it but still, I just had to be the one to do it. There are also times when I'm back in the dishpit, doing dishes and it's clear I'm going over the time that I am supposed to be clocked out while everyone else is out in the dining room or back in the office sitting on their butts doing nothing but eating instead of helping me and then I get turned on to "go faster" and told that they can't afford to have someone help me out all the time.

And they say they APPRECIATE ME???

I'm a $%^^%$$%&%^&^^&%^%-ing Eeno....that's all I am, an Eeno.
