Prolagus commented on the word manuport
«The consensus is that the pebble must have been brought to the cave by an Australopithecus africanus, whose bones were found nearby. Archaeologists call such an object a manuport — something that has been collected but not used for a utilitarian purpose or modified. Other manuports from around 800,000 years ago and later have been found in southern Africa and India.»Is this the very first readymade?, by Martin Bailey

Hi! I have been looking for the proper word to describe someone who has no sensory disabilities, as opposed to those who live with one. I would like the word to imply little about both the able and the disabled other than the fact that the former can indeed use all senses while the others rely on at least one fewer.If there is a good word for that already, it would be perfect. If there is none, would you help me make one up? (pan-sensorial? able-sensed?)

"When Walt (Disney) was developing DisneyLand in the early fifties he would frequently arrive home late in the evenings and would often enter his house through the kitchen ... Walt would sometimes grab a “weenie” from the refrigerator as he made his way through the kitchen and would share the hot dog with his dog Lady. He realized that she would follow him wherever he went when he was holding the hot dog because she knew he was going to share it with her.While developing the new theme park Walt remembered that he could lead the dog wherever he wanted with a “weenie”, so this is the term he coined for describing to his Imagineers how to get the guests to go to certain places and directions."http://www.themainstreetmouse.com/2013/05/13/whats-a-weenie/

Prolagus commented on the word bedraggled
Hello to you!You are right in that it means "drenched in sweat"; this particular word for "drenched", however, is hardly ever used in any context other than that of exhaustion. That's what I meant - it seems to incorporate both senses of bedraggled in the mind of an Italian reader.
March 27, 2013
@Frog: madido di sudore!
I'll go with something along the lines of "covered in sweat", then. There's an Italian word that incorporates both exhaustion and sweat. (Ew!)Thanks! <3

"Four bedraggled porters came through the door, each one staggering under a huge load. They hauled a collection of trunks and large canvas bags."Given that there is no reference to the luggage being wet or soiled anywhere in the chapter, and that these are the porters of a moody and tyrannical woman, am I right in assuming the word is used to mean something like "exhausted/in poor conditions"? Or maybe "covered in sweat"?

Happily for the paranoid, a trio of researchers reckon they have come up with a way to send secret messages via Skype without tipping off censors or intelligence agencies that something fishy is going on. The three, Wojciech Mazurczyk, Maciej Karas and Krzysztof Szczypiorski, who all work at the Warsaw University of Technology, made use of a technique called steganography, cryptography’s lesser-known, less glamorous cousin. Whereas cryptography relies on the brute force of mathematics to make messages unreadable, steganography relies on stealth and cunning to make them undetectable, by hiding them within other, innocent communications. (A classic example is writing in invisible ink between the lines of an ordinary letter.) That way, potential eavesdroppers are not even aware that a conversation is happening."Speaking with silence: Tinkering with Skype can allow people to send undetectable messages" - The Economisthttp://econ.st/WyHpdg

I don't know how to say it, but most forums have a toolbar at the edge of comment boxes. You type your comment, then you select the part you would like to see italicized, click "I" on the toolbar, and that bit of text is in italics now. You want to post a link? You type "check this out", select "this", click "link" on the toolbar, a window pops up, you paste your YouTube link, et voila, you still read "check this out" but the word "this" links to the YouTube video. Without me having to type all the HTML code.

Hello Feedback,I would just like to say that I still find Wordnik quite messy.I simply can't find what I need, when I need it. And this is why I hardly ever use it, despite my love for the community.For instance, comment boxes; conversations arranged in a meaningful way on the community page (I'd like to see all recent comments posted to a word/list page somehow grouped together, not as distinct entries).I'd like to have collaborative lists that are not open to anyone, like we used to have in the YOW days.I'd like to have a quick-translate button (again, something we used to have) for a first hint about a word's meaning when I don't need anything sophisticated.And finally, and most urgent, I would really need something better than the 'feeling fancy' text suggesting how to use HTML. I think I said that before: a drop-down gizmo would be great. I don't even understand how to post some clickable text with a link anymore (see ë), and my computer skills are, I believe, above average.I'm not complaining, I'm actually concerned for you. If I ended up visiting Word Reference more often than I visit Wordnik, other people are probably doing so.

Prolagus commented on the word fanwanking
When continuity mistakes have been made, explanations are often proposed by either writers or fans to smooth over discrepancies. Fans sometimes make up explanations for such errors that may or may not be integrated into canon; this has come to be colloquially known as fanwanking (a term originally coined by the author Craig Hinton to describe excessive use of continuity). Often when a fan does not agree with one of the events in a story (such as the death of a favorite character) they will choose to ignore the event in question so that their enjoyment of the franchise is not diminished. When the holder of the intellectual property discards all existing continuity and starts from scratch it is known as rebooting. Fans call a less extreme literary technique that erases one episode the reset button.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuity_(fiction)#Dealing_with_errors

In Japan and South Korea, March 14 is White Day, the day in which men buy candy for women (while on St. Valentine's day only women are supposed to make/buy chocolate treats for men).

Prolagus commented on the word 哦，天哪，Sam刚洗完澡还在到处找毛巾的时候，女孩醒过来了
It's the definition for Seven wonders of the World. The Chinese text means, according to Google Translate,"Oh, my God, Sam just bath towels also find that when the girl woke up"

By the way, imperfect as it is, this is the first real tangible improvement since the Wordnik era. At last! Congratulations to (whomever? whoever? whatever) is behind it.

Accessing all of my lists now takes longer than ever: main page -> click on my name -> click "my profile" -> scroll down to "lists" -> click "all lists".
I could only change that preference after connecting from an actual computer (something I can do less and less often nowadays).
By "can't" I mean that I get an error message. Accessing Wordnik from Dolphin Browser for Pad on a Honeycomb tablet.
I can't hide the "recent lookups" from my profile. I had them off before the newest change, and I think you should keep the previous settings by default.
I'd like an answer please.
Once more, for the umpteenth time:Some tags in Wordie had comments. When are we getting those back? Will anybody bother telling me something about that, or should I just forget about it and shut up?

occupy Wordnik is © ruzuzu. We also have a picket on Google Plus.
We are occupying Wordnik on my "I want my content back" list (see above). Feel free to join! Due to the potentially long occupation, we'll be mostly bringing canned umbrage, no fufluns this time.
