  1. A great educational addition to the blog.

    I do believe there is already a name for unpopped kernels at the bottom of the cooker. The ones that chip teeth and loosen fillings…………..”grannies”.

  2. I always liked “Elacceleration” – the mistaken notion that repeatedly pressing the elevator button will make it come faster.

  3. If there’s anything we need more of on this Blog is Education!….. Right, Anon?….. Here’s TTop’s right out of the book – ELECELLERATION (el a cel er ay’ shun) n. The mistaken notion that the more you press an elevator button the faster it will arrive….. Good one, TTop…..

  4. We need to culture up……….CULTURIZATION.

    ELECELLERATION……..that must be very similar to hammering the button at crosswalks. Must be a name for that too.

  5. THERE’S nothing in the book that even remotely addresses Culture….. This is the Bible of Un-Culturization!….. I guess the act of hammering on a crosswalk button would be called CROSS ELECELLERATION……
