As the list gets longer, it'll be useful to see what words have already been posted (if you'd rather not duplicate). It may be interesting to see what kinds of words have been used, too.

To that end, I've started this alphabetical list. When you post a new word to the thread, please also add it here.       agree.gif

Alpenglow
amativeness
apropos
autodidact
bivouac
buckminsterfullerene-esque
chthonic
denouement
enigmatic
evanescent
ginormous
harf
hemidemisemiquaver
hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia
iconoclast
inception
metrosexual
molybdenum
oxymoron
paradigm
paradox
penultimate
peregrinating
petulant
quaff
quibble
Quibbles and Bits
recumbent
refudiate
troll


If the list gets too cumbersome, somebody can divide it up.

Amativeness..... stands for the relating to or inclined toward love, especially sexual love; amorous.

Amativeness is also a concept of phrenology.[1]It is the faculty concerned with physical love and sexual attraction. When it is strongly developed, it may represent carnality and licentiousness. When underdeveloped: coldness, frigidity, indifference towards the opposite sex.

Blivet(n):  Cowboy slang...10 pounds of manure in a 5 pound bag. From cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses .  It's also really fun to say.

Go ahead, call the local bully a "blivet" and see what happens.

molybdenum - Element 42 in the periodic table, molybdenum is a metallic element that resembles chromium and tungsten in many properties, is used especially in strengthening and hardening steel, and is a trace element in plant and animal metabolism. (from Merriam-Webster)

I know. It's not a very interesting word, not very useful on Twitter, but I just like saying it. ...... "Molybdenum".         biggrin.gif
.

You've probably heard of molybdenum-steel. You may not have come across Molybdenum Falls. But you can see it.        agree.gif

Well, no, you probably can't. ...... It's on the trail from Mineral City to Poodle Dog Pass, but it's right below where the trail (old road) crosses Molybdenum Creek (a tributary of Silver Creek), and it's just about impossible to get into position to see. Maybe that's why neither Sore Feet nor aywolfpac have included it on their waterfall websites.



Silver Creek crosses the picture, Molybdenum Creek comes in from the top (south).

.........................................................................

Here's the Flash Earth version, covering more territory. If you look at it 'full screen', Silver Lake is at the upper right and the site of Mineral City at the lower left. Molybdenum Falls would be just about dead center.

Molybdenum. You probably had some for breakfast.          dizzy.gif


Hey Bryan (anybody). What do you do to get those Flash Earth links to display the target picture?

Trollette:

One who purposely and deliberately (that purpose usually being self-amusement) starts an argument in a manner which attacks others on a forum without in any way listening to the arguments proposed by her peers. He will spark of such an argument via the use of ad hominem attacks (i.e. 'you're nothing but a fanboy' is a popular phrase) with no substance or relevence to back them up as well as straw man arguments, which he uses to simply avoid addressing the essence of the issue.

Instigator:

–verb (used with object), -gat·ed, -gat·ing.
1. To cause by incitement; foment: to instigate a quarrel.
2. To urge, provoke, or incite to some action or course: to instigate the people to revolt.

I can go either way, but in my opinion it would not be a big deal if someone posted a word later down in this thread that was already used way earlier on. Basically what I'm saying is I don't think the wiki is needed, although an interesting idea.

peregrinating: "to travel especiallyl on foot"


I was talking with my sister on the phone tonight and she said ~"...so the next time you are peregrinating around..."

And of course I stopped the conversation right there in its tracks and told her to prove that she knew the definition of such a high-falutin' word which had obviouly only been employed to demonstrate sisterly superiority.  For shame! shakehead.gif  hmmm.gif

The English word "pilgrim" comes from the Latin peregrinus.
The peregrine falcon lives in many parts of the world.
