Origin
Early 16th century from Latin praecipitat- ‘thrown headlong’, from the verb praecipitare, from praeceps, praecip(it)- ‘headlong’, from prae ‘before’ + caput ‘head’. The original sense of the verb was ‘hurl down, send violently’; hence ‘cause to move rapidly’, which gave rise to sense 1 (early 17th century).

==========

I considered being precipitate
Because today, it’s getting late,
But there might be bad fallout
So I decided to go all out
So y’all don’t need to settle
Like snowfall on cold metal.
‘Cause remember with good concentration,
We’ve already used precipitation.

Diminishing Distance

A phrase and a click
Can often do the trick
A few supportive posts
Between computer hosts
Now let me here cheer it
So you can all hear it
It requires no long trip
To cement our friendship.

Today, CREATE!

From yesterday, an increase
Just a tiny little piece
Forward, if you please
At it, we won’t sneeze
Even if you rate
That it won’t be great.
