It looked like a bathysphere: a ball of riveted metal, two meters in diameter, with a single porthole on one side. It stood on a low plinth, braced by struts. Cables were plugged into it all over its surface. -- The Black Lung Captain by Chris Wooding
Perhaps you should focus your ire on the unritzy states - they seem to be popular today. Or take a chance on the random word generator, which again seems to be functioning well as my personal Tarot card.
Is anyone else having trouble hearing pronunciations? Chelster pronounced my request line word, but I can't hear it! A little gray bar runs along the top for a second, which makes me think it's playing, but no audio.
In my ESL group of Hmong kindergarteners, we were going around the table and practicing finishing the sentence "I like to eat ____." (What do you like to eat, Pajoua? I like to eat pizza!) and one of them said squirrels. No, he was quite serious. He added, "Yum."
Altricial, meaning "requiring nourishment", refers to a pattern of growth and development in organisms which are incapable of moving around on their own soon after hatching or being born. The word is derived from the Latin root alere meaning "to nurse, to rear, or to nourish", and refers to the need for young to be fed and taken care of for a long duration.
What was the question? That answer seems surprisingly meta (or the discussion there does). Sounds like a nice prediction for any question, though - unless your question was "What is the one thing I will never have, though I desire it?"

Ack, I've been gone for two weeks and come back to find all the word pages looking completely different! Is there a place that people are talking about the new layout? The font is weird; lowercase t is very distracting. Anyone agree?
I don't think that can prevent marky in his thanking crusade. I'm pretty sure the reason for the thank you bilby was that he couldn't find bilby's profile to thank him there. Besides, then how would reesetee help me fix the wounded trees?
Just make yourself invisible--all you have to do is add the magic incantation "This account either doesn't exist or isn't public" anywhere on your profile page. It worked for me--I've tricked absolutely everybody!
