    Verily I have yet to encounter one more profligate in this most effeminate and bombastic form of articulation than myself. ^_^

    According to the fruxation reactor on my Presogrationslism Detector, the range of pliothorate to the ratio of manithin has yet to be balanced. In fact, it could be in severe danger of recabrlicrating!

    (I think this is the point of the thread, no?)

    For some reason that word sounds like it means the opposite of what it really means. I don’t know why, but don’t you think it does?

    I think that utter, unmitigated polysyllabic mayhem may possibly be a haphazard idiosyncrasy of unknown definition, except the individual designation that it is the use of terminology, syntax, semantics, linguistics, and miscellaneous figures of speech in a manner which is almost, but not entirely, wholly unlike partial, whole, superficial, or in every respect nonsensical, speech, though it may not be.

    Very good, Goq…here are some more: Scholars of Jewish philosophy have contended over views indicative of the divergent supralapsarian and infralapsarian schools of thought over the millenia.

    While traditional Jewish literature indicative of both schools of thought is extant, I am not sure that either one is especially prevalent in Jewish thought today.

    On the proposition, assumption, hypothesis, presupposition, postulation, supposition, presumption, conjecture, speculation, assertion, and belief that this post may or may not be a hopeless conglomeration of otherwise useless statements. This will inversely distressing, upsetting, traumatic, heartbreaking, agonizing, and harrowing and just downright painful to those suffering from hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, the fear of long words. Chances are that you will now throw your computer screen out the window, particularly if you suffer from rupophobia, the fear of rubbish.

    OOM: Eytan Kobre used the title of this topic in his article last week.

    DY: I always enjoy Mr. Kobre’s articles, but I like when he writes about more substantive things. Last week’s was a bit of a disappointment.

    Try to figure out what common proverbs these are. Most are by Aaron Sussman.

    but bibulation cannot be induced by any coercive process.

    Subarboreally situate.

    Okay, then:

    1) You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink

    2) The early bird catches the worm

    3) All that glitters is not gold

    4) (I know this one, I know this one… but I can’t remember the saying. THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY. I know what the words mean but I must never have heard the quote.)

    5) A fool and his money are soon parted

    6) A bird in the hand equals two in the bush

    How about (these are harder!)

    One should diligently exercise proper speculation upon that situs that one will eventually tenant if one propels oneself into the aerosphere.

    Aberration is the hallmark of homo sapiens while longanimous placability and condonation are the indicia of supramundane omniscience.

    A lithoid form, whose onward course

    Is shaped by gravitational force,

    Can scarce enjoy the consolation

    Of bryophytic aggregation.

    It is fruitless to endure lacrimation over precipitately departed lacteal fluid.

    Missiles of ligneous or crystalline consistency have the potential for fracturing my osseous structure, but appellations will eternally be benign.

    Individuals who make their abode in vitreous edifices would be advised to refrain from catapulting petrous projectiles.

    A bad wind…is a sign of no good…? Seems about right.

    That last one is really cunning. The rest of them are just painful to read. X_X

    dunno

    To err is human; to forgive divine.

    A rolling stone gathers no moss.

    dunno

    No use crying over spilled milk.

    Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.

    People who live in glass houses shouldn’t through stones.
