Talking Spod

Too funny. While playing Boggle, looked up what this new-to-me word means and got:
Noun. (colloquial) one who wastes time on nonproductive activities online.

SALTATIONISTS

I thought it was odd that leaping would be a school of thought, but then on looking it up, it turns out it refers to proponents of a specific pre-Darwin theory of evolution.

PUNKEST

Good to know that PUNK is in fact an adjective!

MORTIFEROUSNESS

I couldn't find anything good, so I tried some random word-like things. This worked, for 28 points. (MORTIFEROUS = deadly.)

Great find Spike! Reminds me of 1 of my fave words: ODORIFEROUS: having or giving off a smell, especially an unpleasant or distinctive one

I just found what I was sure was a real word as I'd heard it before: ANDROMORPHINES. WordTwist refused to accept it. After the game I looked it up ... andromorphine is a type of drug used in 24th century Federation medicine ... on Star Trek.

That's how know you're just too much of a Trekkie ...

I'm sure that reality will catch up. (I still remember one episode about some future wheat hybrid, like quadratritum something, and I'd probably try to find that. Anyway, does "tribbles" work?)

Just think how cool it would be if we could use words from Trek and Star Wars! Never tried "tribbles."

TRIBBLE and TRIBBLES are both accepted. The first definition is '(in paper manufacture) a frame for drying paper'; the second is 'A fictional alien creature in ''Star Trek'', a cooing ball of fur'.

Also, JEDI is accepted (and I've played it many times): 'a person who claims to live according to a philosophy based on that of the fictional Jedi in Star Wars'.

Thanks! I think the next words to try are WOOKIE, TRICORDER, and BORG as they are somewhat assimilated into the language. l
