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.

    Я очень креативная, я очень ленивая, я большой патриот, и когда встаю на весы, я восклицаю О, my God! А ещё я рифмоплёт :) Вот как то так.... 0_о Im from Belarus. I live in Zaslavl. Im looking for friends all over the planet, and I&# 39; m against international discord ( including Ukraine). In me there is blood Ukrainians, Belarusians, and I am against the separation of peoples. And we, Belarusians, not Bulbash people like everyone else, we eat the same thing as you. :)))))))))) Sorry for the mistakes, I do not know much English and I use a translator.
