rubah commented on the list words-i-can-t-spell--2
It's not that I couldn't spell sequester and cloister individually, I just kept trying to combine them together as "secloister"

rubah commented on the word phlegm
I think the meaning throws a lot of people off this word. The massive consonant clusters really do something for me, though.

Sorry for double-commenting:) Just had some more info to add.I can add words to that list in the mobile site, but on the regular display, the addition words don't show up, despite being listed in my profile.

aside from having to load the entire bug list to post a comment..I can't seem to add words to precisely one of my lists. It asks if I want to register or log in. The other ones are very happy to offer the opportunity to add words
rubah commented on the word exquisite
"exquisite dead guy, rotating in his display case"I like exquisite because it defines the way it sounds. The "quis" just has a sort of crescendo to it that is almost too much.

rubah commented on the word azure
I liked it because of that episode of X-Files, where the guy who could take over your mind by talking to you tried to convince mulder he was about to be run over by a semi-truck that was azure colored

good times, putting charge onto pith balls.
rubah commented on the word equipollent
An equipollent system is kinda like an equivalent system except it doesn't adhere to the rigid body principle (the body has some flex mechanism or is not rigid).One of those words that don't seem like they really would exist but here it is anyways.
rubah commented on the word ordinate
Why does the independent axis get so much more love than the dependent?

rubah commented on the word larrup
An Oak Grove-ism, where if a food is "larrupin'" it is so good that your tongue will come out of your mouth and beat you around the head for more.
rubah commented on the word hasp
When my chem teacher made us write this as our 'word of the day', I did not believe it was real.
rubah commented on the word chord
I added this thinking of circles. What were you thinking of?
