 A child (sometimes an adult) that behaves well whether its parents are present or not; a child that is good when one's back is turned.
 The sun is a demigod who comes daily from an eastern heaven and follows a winding path leading down to the ocean. During the afternon hours the sun will receive reports from all the other gods concerning the work that they have accomplished during the day. Two of these gods are in charge of the stars and take frequent trips to ROBERT K. MCKNIGHT the moon to investigate their star-charges. (Palauans like to note that they traveled to the moon long ago while we are just preparing to do so.) Toward evening, as the sun approaches the ocean, it first lands on a large orange tree (kerukur) and hurls the fruit into the ocean to frighten away hostile fish, such as sharks. Hence, the orange beams often associated with sunsets. After securing the safety of the ocean, the sun makes its final descent for the day. Thus, evening is the time when the sun throws darts.
 This technique, perhaps the best known, derives its name from a lizard that may be seen to dart around to the other side of a tree to conceal itself from any observer. Properly used, the technique is regarded as unbeatable and almost magical. Its tactics are designed to surprise and confuse the opposition, always keeping the opponent off balance by maximizing the variable and unexpected. The selected alternative, where there is a choice, is the one calculated to surprise. No goal is approached openly until it is surely secured. General behavior and facial expression are a study in noncommitment.
 Lot of workers who don't accomplish much.
