      the worthless word for the day is: jeopard

      [back-formation < jeopardy]
      to put in jeopardy; to hazard, risk, imperil

      "And when they heard of his adventures, they
      marvelled that he would jeopard his person so,
      alone."
      - Sir Th. Malory, Le Morte d'Arthur (ca. 1470)
