A normal person wouldn't steal pituitaries


HAI
yabu(reru)
meaning: defeat

興敗 == kouhai == the rise and fall of nations; destiny
不敗 == fuhai == invincibility


Left radical is 'shell/money' (貝), right radical is 'strike with stick in hand'. Thus, the original meaning was 'strike and destroy assets'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Shell defeated by striking hand.'
