  • Oh! Just like the buttered-cat array!

    August 3, 2015

  • Yay! I love this list.

    August 3, 2015

  • And double umbrage for not making a cellar list for our amusement.

    August 3, 2015

  • Fun!

    August 3, 2015

  • Umbrage! You didn't put brackets around jagron.

  • Bilbybagginses, there is a typo in your comment about the technical foul--obviously disqualifying said comment. And a non-accent is, by its very nature, not an accent. (Once nebraksans conquer the airwaves, we'll use that platform to convince the rest of the world of this.) And furthermore, if the vending machine choses not to give you any tasty pellets, why not try putting some brackets around something in your own comments? (I find food pellet to be a yummy alternative.)

    August 3, 2015

  • Okay, okay. I'll admit it--cellar door *is* beautiful.

  • John!

    August 1, 2015

  • Oh! And I take umbrage at the apparent lack of a cellar list--surely we'd like a nice spot for root cellar and storm cellar and that silly business about cellar door--right? I nominate bilbykins to make one for us. Just because.

    August 1, 2015

  • Gosh--it's been ages since we had a hilarious misunderstanding around here. Shall we commence with the phony umbrage taking? I'll start. First, as a nebraksan, I take umbrage at the notion that accents are somehow hip or cool. Why, around these parts, we pride ourselves on the notion that we make the most versatile newscasters because we have no accents. Ha! Second, I take umbrage at the notion that VM's humor is somehow impaired. Watch as I balance on this unicycle and toss fufluns toward the vendingmachine. Does it not spit quarters back at me? (Or those dreaded dollar coins that are impossible to feed into the coin slot on the city bus?) And last, but not least, I take umbrage at what I anticipate to be bilby's next comment--something along the lines of "take my wives... please." Sir, I take umbrage; not wives.

  • "A tub boat was a type of unpowered cargo boat used on a number of the early English and German canals. The English boats were typically 6 m (19.7 ft) long and 2 m (6.6 ft) wide and generally carried 3 long tons (3.0 t; 3.4 short tons) to 5 long tons (5.1 t; 5.6 short tons) of cargo, though some extra deep ones could carry up to 8 long tons (8.1 t; 9.0 short tons). They are also called compartment boats or container boats."

    July 24, 2015

  • "Pear-shaped; having the general shape of a pear; obconic; differing from egg-shaped or oviform in having a slight constriction running around it, or, in section, a reverse or concave curve between the convex curves of the two ends: as, a pyriform vase. See cut of egg under plover."

    Oh, Century, I love you so.

  • It's hard to tell why it's not a valid Scrabble word. Maybe it wasn't in enough of the source dictionaries.

    As for dyssynchronicity, I'm certain it will never be playable--but that's because it has 16 letters (and there's only room on the board for 15-letter words). :)

Congenital sternal foramens can often be mistaken for bullet holes."

  • Oh! I got it to work just now--but I copied "tree-free-paper-alternatives" from the URL at the top.

    July 8, 2015

  • I think this is a great place for comments and feedback, erlome. I'll note two things. First, our benevolent Wordnik overlords only track the number of words we've looked at when we're actively logged in to the site--and we can each change our own settings to decide how much of that information we'd like the rest of the world to see. Second, the venerable Century definitions are still here--but only for those words that are old enough to have been around before the dawn of lolcats and yolo. (My favorite Century definitions tend to have the word hence in them--I even made a hence list.)

    Anywho, I'm glad you're here!

Finney while ruling that conditions in the Arkansas penal system constituted cruel and unusual punishment. Prisoners were fed "grue", described as "a substance created by mashing meat, potatoes, margarine, syrup, vegetables, eggs, and seasoning into a paste and baking the mixture in a pan." The majority decision delivered by Justice Stevens upheld an order from the 8th Circuit Court that the grue diet be discontinued."

  • "The faro game was also called "bucking the tiger" or "twisting the tiger's tail", which comes from early card backs that featured a drawing of a Bengal tiger. By the mid 19th century, the tiger was so commonly associated with the game that gambling districts where faro was popular became known as "tiger town", or in the case of smaller venues, "tiger alley". In fact, some gambling houses would simply hang a picture of a tiger in their windows to advertise that a game could be found within."

  • What's a home circle?

    March 25, 2015

  • Oh, fun!

    March 5, 2015

  • See long time no see.

    March 3, 2015

  • I find it amusing that some of the earliest comments seem to be missing--does anyone remember how the whole Dara Torres Olympic horse jumping momentum started to build? Did it have something to do with skipvia and priapic elves?

    March 1, 2015

  • I should note for those of you playing along at home that there are references here to Dara Torres, etc. See, e.g., 42.

  • The other examples for this one are interesting, too. One calls MRSA a "super bug" and others seem to come from an article about using maggots to combat it. Bugs versus bugs.

    February 28, 2015

  • Aw, thanks vm--you're making me feel bashful.

    February 27, 2015

  • See?

    February 27, 2015

  • Add as you like! As I'm sure you know, "open list" is my middle name.

  • Thank you, bilby. As you know, I'm also fond of misheard-numa-numa-lyrics.

    June 22, 2015

  • This made me think of you: http://www.metrolyrics.com/song-ml-video-cea.html
    It was probably the bananaphone.

  • I only just recently noticed that there's a comments section! Yikes! Anyways, unreal-laurens-friend-finder is up and running and needs contributions! So many exclamation points!

    June 16, 2015

  • Eek! TankHughes, I'm glad I was able to point out that list to you, but I'm sorry to contribute to the demise of another. May I console myself with the thought that you'll eventually replace it with a new list for our amusement?

    April 23, 2015

  • I'd respond to you on my list... BUT I DELETED IT! *shock* It made more sense to add my 4 to tbtabby's Location Slang list instead. I'm happy someone else has made a large list that I can legitimately add Canadian tuxedo and Mexican wave to.

  • Thank you for your kind comment of December 15, ruzuzu. It pains me to have overlooked your comment for so long but, in the absence of the Community page, I seem to have been looking in the wrong places for evidence of activity. I had begun to fear that I was the only one still visiting regularly.

    When I last communicated with Erin she wrote that she had a fix for the Community page but was having difficulty getting it installed on the server. I think it is possible we will not have the Community page back until after the holidays. I hope people will not have lost the habit of visiting.

    I hope your holidays are happy ones.

  • Nope. Just dry pita pocket editions.

    August 11, 2014

  • Hey babe, read any good hummus books lately?

    August 10, 2014

  • Thanks, bilby. I needed that.

    July 21, 2014

  • Can you ask around for me then? I'm sure they come from Riga.

    *chortle chortle chortle*

    July 18, 2014

  • I'm really only a half-Lat. I have no idea what a marole is.

    July 18, 2014

  • What is a marole? I thought I might as well ask a Latvian.

    July 18, 2014

  • I don't know of a list for obsolete and disused science terms. Maybe time to start one?

    May 11, 2014

  • I vote we name the inherent sound of fun ruzuzurrus

    March 19, 2014

  • And so do I!
    But I don't understand how we are supposed to find this █████ comment box on one's profile.

    February 21, 2014

  • Hi ruzuzu. Bovine traces detected over at jomo.

    December 13, 2013

  • Hey ruzuzu, I have tripled the length of your calculator words list - hope you like it!

  • I haven't heard her perform. I did have a chance to listen to her read some of her poems. She did them more than justice!

    April 16, 2013

  • I knew she plays the sax. Have you read 'Crazy Brave' yet?
    I wonder how many people realize the etymological significance of the title.
    Playing the sax is 'crazy brave' of course.
    The sax is the ultimate soul instrument with its long neck and throaty sound (see nephesh)
    My niece Ramona has taught me that well!
    She has 'crazy brave' in her blood, too.

    April 16, 2013

  • Me? Why?
    *retaliates with a volley of fufluns*

    January 28, 2013

  • Fonk you, ruzuzu.

    January 28, 2013

  • gallbladder!

    December 13, 2012

  • Spent the past half-hour reading your lists and almost choking on them. Love you!

    December 5, 2012

  • Thanks for sharper ruzuzu!

    November 8, 2012

  • *yawn*

    July 22, 2012

  • Thanks for the red admiral! By the way, I borrowed some of your spiders for my own little collection.

    July 10, 2012

  • Hi ruzuzu.

    It took me a while to find this reply box.
    Thank you for the welcome message.
    Please feel free to comment on my lists or add words to them.

  • Huh! Can't even make the pronunciations play at "hot dog"....go figure. ACK!

    April 25, 2012

  • So, the feedback page is otiose? 'Zu, are you able to create pronunciations? I'm having no luck at all. Is it broke? Can we access pronunciations of old?

    April 25, 2012

  • And I less than three you! Miss you guys. You know how it feels sometimes, though... I visit often but can't find anything to add to the conversation.

    I really wish there was an easier way to follow threads. If you don't spend lots of time here, you have to open all links on the Zeitmunity page. There has to be a different way!

    March 29, 2012

  • Thanks, 'zu. I probably would have found it eventually if I'd spent more time. Cheers!

    March 16, 2012

  • oh thank you, good catch!

  • Glad you liked my definition of Bulgar - I'm a total newbie. Don't know how to create a list, or what its purpose is, or how to use it, etc. Tips?

    January 20, 2012

  • What's all the fuss about <3' secret messages? Ah! I see! Can it really be as simple as hiding messages behind' hearts?

    January 14, 2012

  • Perhaps I'm <3' not' as smart as I think I am.

    January 13, 2012

  • Hmm.

    January 13, 2012

  • Dear ruzuzu,

    You are <3' the opposite of' a terrible bore.

    Yours with no <3' thing but' fondness,

    Yarb.

    January 13, 2012

  • Thanks, Pro!

    January 13, 2012

  • <3'<3'<3'

    January 13, 2012

  • I'm happy to hear that! Nobody had said "welcome to Wordnik" before you did, but I've been feeling more and more at home here, lately.

    January 9, 2012

  • *grins*

    January 4, 2012

  • Aww, shucks. You're awfully nifty yourself. :-)

    January 4, 2012

  • Here's another comment. Phew!

    January 3, 2012

  • Eek. I'm at 6666 comments. I was going to make a joke about how that's bad luck, but then my browser stopped working.

  • kumanan brought it to my attention that the palindrome code was not ignoring spaces, so I fixed it. You'll be seeing "And it's a palindrome" on multi-word palindrome pages by the end of the day. In the interim, here's a list to celebrate to new feature: http://www.wordnik.com/lists/semordnilap

  • Dear ruzuzu,
    Glad to see you.
    Love, ruzuzu

  • Man, I missed all the excitement--I was busy here in nebraksa watching corn grow and paint dry.
