      widely distributed in the seeds of plants. See Adipose
      tissue, under Adipose.
      [1913 Webster]

   Note: Animal fats are composed mainly of three distinct fats,
         tristearin, tripalmitin, and triolein, mixed in varying
         proportions. As olein is liquid at ordinary
         temperatures, while the other two fats are solid, it
         follows that the consistency or hardness of fats
         depends upon the relative proportion of the three
         individual fats. During the life of an animal, the fat
         is mainly in a liquid state in the fat cells, owing to
         the solubility of the two solid fats in the more liquid
         olein at the body temperature. Chemically, fats are
         composed of fatty acid, as stearic, palmitic, oleic,
         etc., united with glyceryl. In butter fat, olein and
         palmitin predominate, mixed with another fat
         characteristic of butter, butyrin. In the vegetable
         kingdom many other fats or glycerides are to be found,
         as myristin from nutmegs, a glyceride of lauric acid in
         the fat of the bay tree, etc.
         [1913 Webster]

   2. The best or richest productions; the best part; as, to

7. V.E.R.A. -- Virtual Entity of Relevant Acronyms (September 2014)
FAT
       File Allocation Table (DOS)
       

8. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015)
File Allocation Table
FAT
FAT32

    (FAT) The component of an MS-DOS or Windows
   95 file system which describes the files, directories,
   and free space on a hard disk or floppy disk.

   A disk is divided into partitions.  Under the FAT file
   system each partition is divided into clusters, each of
   which can be one or more sectors, depending on the size of
   the partition.  Each cluster is either allocated to a file or
   directory or it is free (unused).  A directory lists the name,
   size, modification time and starting cluster of each file or
   subdirectory it contains.

   At the start of the partition is a table (the FAT) with one
   entry for each cluster.  Each entry gives the number of the
   next cluster in the same file or a special value for "not
   allocated" or a special value for "this is the last cluster in
   the chain".  The first few clusters after the FAT contain the
   root directory.

   The FAT file system was originally created for the CP/M[?]
   operating system where files were catalogued using 8-bit
   addressing.  MS DOS's FAT allows only 8.3 filenames.

   With the introduction of MS-DOS 4 an incompatible 16-bit FAT
   (FAT16) with 32-kilobyte clusters was introduced that
   allowed partitions of up to 2 gigabytes.

   Microsoft later created FAT32 to support partitions larger
   than two gigabytes and pathnames greater that 256
   characters.  It also allows more efficient use of disk space
   since clusters are four kilobytes rather than 32 kilobytes.
   FAT32 was first available in OEM Service Release 2 of
   Windows 95 in 1996.  It is not fully backward compatible
   with the 16-bit and 8-bit FATs.

   is a FAT16 filename?]

9. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Fat
   (Heb. heleb) denotes the richest part of the animal, or the
   fattest of the flock, in the account of Abel's sacrifice (Gen.
   4:4). It sometimes denotes the best of any production (Gen.
   45:18; Num. 18:12; Ps. 81:16; 147:47). The fat of sacrifices was
   to be burned (Lev. 3:9-11; 4:8; 7:3; 8:25; Num. 18:17. Comp. Ex.
   29:13-22; Lev. 3:3-5).
   
     It is used figuratively for a dull, stupid state of mind (Ps
   17:10).
   
     In Joel 2:24 the word is equivalent to "vat," a vessel. The
   hebrew word here thus rendered is elsewhere rendered "wine-fat"
   and "press-fat" (Hag. 2:16; Isa. 63:2).
