metaeuphoria commented on the word ratholing
Ratholing is a term used to describe a conversation or process that has deviated from its original productive purpose into a generally unproductive but long and winding detour that eventually comes to a dead end. The original discussion purpose may be to agree on a course of action. However, if one or more people rathole into a specific point of the discussion then the discussion stalls with no actionable outcome.
In short, a fab word.

metaeuphoria commented on the word welteislehre
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
--Robert Frost, 1920

metaeuphoria commented on the word metaeuphoria
I only 'riffed' on the use of protologism as a word, not the protologism at hand itself.

metaeuphoria commented on the word titian
the only eponymous adjective that exactly the same as whom it named for
metaeuphoria commented on the list eponymous-adjectives
see wikipedia, but that list is way too long to add (nor would I really want to).
Also, it would be darwinian vs darwinism; added some of the others suggested though.
metaeuphoria commented on the word narf
Of course, the one thing I will always associate with narf!
Note that the word metaeuphoria is a protologism with aspirations of someday becoming a neologism, though its usage remains limited at best. In fact, it lacks meaning because it has no contextual use whatsoever. If anything, it's barely hypertextual through its self-referential mentions at metaeuphoria.com (and now at wordie.org).
As a chance linguistic commingling between the prefix meta and word euphoria, you have a state which can only be described as beyond common or everyday euphoria (if only there were such a condition). Any more elucidation requires far keener disambiguation.
