de minimis


adj. (dee-minnie-miss) Latin for "of minimum importance" or "trifling." Essentially it refers to something or a difference that is so little, small, minuscule or tiny that the law does not refer to it and will not consider it. In a million dollar deal, a $10 mistake is de minimis.

    Crazy Indie rock and cats lover, genuine, creative, annoying and lovable! The kind of person you will be always happy with : D I am not a party girl, love the peace of my bedroom, love to read, to draw... It seems kind of boring but I would say I have a different conception of & quot; having fun& quot;... I have it, definitely. Hope to find someone that I can feel related to, start an awesome friendship and be able to help each other to improve language skills. See u then :)
