SPHAEROCOBALTITE (30 pts.)

I played COBALTITE and COBALTITES before playing around with the remaining letters. Plural s doesn't work on the big one, unfortunately.
I tried AEROCOBALTITE first, but that doesn't seem to exist.

I'm impressed! I'm pretty sure that SPHAERO- would never have occurred to me. (Maybe not the COBALTITE either.)

RESURRECTIONISED (30 points). As a swiper, when I see a word like resurrection that's ling enough but very common, I often slide a few letters further just to get a good look at the renaining letters. I was looking for a prefix, didn't expect the suffix to score.

I bettered someone's 38 pt record this week by adding in- to their word for 42 pts. As you said, nobody's invincible.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I had a board just a while ago and fatpagan2 held the record. there seemed to be one better word out there, so I played it. All I could find was ORGANIZATION, and apparently that's all fatpagan2 could find too. Then I remembered your "adding in-" comment and did just that. INORGANIZATION for two new records. Woohoo!

Well, this one surprised me just now: SEARCHINGNESSES (28/15) Can't conceive of ever using that in a sentence!

Spike, what happened to your post in this thread about finding BRACHYDIAGONAL and WEATHERGLASSES? I saw it late last night and this a.m. it was gone. I thought it was interesting. A little less exotic than your find but I uncovered PARALLELOGRAMMATIC a few days ago.

While playing a board yesterday I saw IMPORTANT early but knew it wouldn't be worth enough pts. So when I saw super- I ventured SUPERIMPORTANT. It was valid for 26 pts. I have heard and spoken the word but haven't seen it in written form so did not know it was a compound word until yesterday.

I'm glad my strategy of randomly swiping in letters that somewhat sound like plausible combinations finally worked (I knew the -CEPHALOUS part, though)

That strategy generally has worked for me (although I type, not swipe). Congratulations though! I'll have to watch for the SCAPHO- prefix. Thanks.

Earlier today I cobbled a word together. It was GONADECTOMIES, I liked it, although it's somewhat painful to think about.
