lol, kate, for sure they often seem impractical and theoretical. They continue to be a source of amusement for me because of their quirkinesses. (I want to find that word some day! )

Edit: I recalled after I posted that I found HARDHANDEDNESSES a while ago. Was surprised it was valid. It refers to having calloused hands. Gotta love the -nesses!

I at least found GENTLEMANLINESSES not too long after I read that. I'll look for the -WOMAN- version.

At first I thought I was seeing things when I spotted HALLUCINOGENICS (18/15) yesterday.

For what it's worth and kind of in the same light, "doob", "doobs", "doobie" and "doobies" are accepted...........now I have the munchies

Cheers,

Even with a biochemistry background, I honestly didn't think I'd ever spot GALACTOPOIESIS. But I suppose it helped me recognize -POIESIS, at which point I went looking for something that would precede it.

(Since I spent most of the last minute looking for it, that probably kept me from beating the total score and total words records on the board. Still worth it.)

One of these days, I'll figure out how to start a new thread. Anyway, today seems to be a great day in the forums. I can join the Illuminati, buy gold and diamonds, and even get embalming compound. (I assume to embalm all those people I killed with my black-market guns, tanks, etc., if you remember that post from a while back.)

And cheat on an exam or two, which seems so quotidian by comparison...
