Heh, I can kinda thank Fus Ro Dah for my current interests/passions. Maybe even further then that, considering the hobbies that have spun off from said interest and the fact i'm seriously considering turning those into something more. So I certainly acknowledge the power of those words.

You'd never think a simple search on Youtube could change your life. :lol:

My favorite words are usually around 4 letters long and shouted with accompanying hand gestures.

I then stand by my philosophy that words, like hammers and guns, cannot be bad. They're just finely tuned tools. All they really are, are verbal exclamation points.
There is Light, and there is Dark, but who defines what they mean?

One of my favorite words is audacious.

Dzang ... it is from a sci-fantasy series by Tad Williams, i think.

Not so much of a word, or phrase but,

Why do we park in the driveway and drive on the parkway?? :?

I often throw that out there when asked if there are any other questions, at a meeting. :)

That is similar to cargo, which is goods carried by ship!

I enjoy the words 'blob' and 'globule'.
