Definition #68266 - Preferred [edit]
definition x1 is realistic/sane (colloquial sense)/pragmatic/practical/typical/frequent/fairly probable/deemed to be likely to actually happen in real-life (as opposed to in a flight of fantasy or being merely possible but unlikely/abnormal) according to judge x2 and under external conditions/rules for judgment/considerations x3
notes For example, winning the lottery is not rirli because it 'does not happen to real people', as the saying goes, despite the fact that SOMEone always ends up winning; it is just the case that the judge does not consider it likely to happen to anyone that they know of. Another example would be that successfully fleeing the cops is not rirli: it is possible and even happens every now and then on the news, but it is extremely rare. Basically, if it is newsworthy for its rareness, it is not rirli. On the other hand, some things which actually are objectively fairly unlikely but which are subjectively representative of 'how life works' (such as with Murphy's Law) may be considered rirli. Mundane things very much so are rirli. Things which could be mundane but which 'no-one actually does' are not rirli. There is always an element of subjectivity or exaggeration with this word. It is not about what is physically possible, just what is familiar to the hearsay and experience and contemplation of the judge. A reasonable expectation is rirli. See also: kanpe, zirli
