    To ames re your example of the use of “riposte” in a sentence: You used it as a verb, but you defined it as a noun. I do not believe it can be used as a verb, except when used in feivel’s definition.

    “pulchritude” is another favorite of mine. it means beauty, which strikes me as funny, as the word itself isn’t an elegant or pretty-sounding thing.

    Thanx feivel- was wondering who the first person to correct me would be!!!

    ames- I’d reccomned Dell- it’s what I use with amazing battery life…

    feivel, I consider your post to be highly pernicious, when you consider the eye strain that it takes to discover that you actually made no correction.

    squeak- Huh??? I actually spelt it right…woweeee I’m more talented then I ever imagined!!!

    I didn’t say you spelled it right, only that feivel merely copy/pasted your spelling and perniciously tried to pass it off as a correction.

    Can we take a vote on whether or not Medical terms or scientific names count as words? I vote no. Otherwise, I could coin a name for a clear, colorless liquid which I claim to have added drops of every drug on the planet and call it
