So for my Psychology class, we have to participate in so many "points" worth of research projects for participation. I went to one yesterday, and the first of the tests dealt with word association/spelling/whatever.

It would flash an actual word on the screen in caps, and then following would be a lowercase set of letters. This set of letters might be a word, or a "non-word." That's what I had to decipher. If it was a word, I had to press the L key, and if not, I had to press the S key, making my decision in a reasonable amount of time.

So the little + on the screen pops up to get my focus. A word flashes in capitals, and then the letters "fap" come up. My quickest reaction was, 'Oh that's a word' and so I press L, only for the computer to beep at me.

Not only has the Pit messed with my vocabulary, but scientific research as well.

On top of that, it means that "fap" is not a word. I can't tell if I'm more saddened, surprised, or disappointed.

...

Discuss.

You should complain to the head that certain test, because obviously they've no idea what they're doing.

I can no longer watch any Russell Crowe movies... at least not with my family. Something about yelling, "Russell! WTF!?" when he's dying in Gladiator makes my family want to disown me.

Fap is the sound of fapping. Therefore it is not a word. Just like with swords, yelling shiiiinngg!! is the same concept as the swords colliding.

Any spelling or grammatical errors written above are because of my inferior brain to yours. Good job, you won life.

I don't think that makes it a legitimate word though, anyone can make an onomatopoeia but that isn't going to be in a dictionary.

But but but but but... boom and cuckoo and sizzle and run on sentences.

So fap is an onomatopoeia, but not necessarily a word.

Right?

Though fap should be a word.

Fap is a word. Period.

The urban dictionary is serious **** man, fap is definitely a word.

But in all seriousness you should look at this : http://www.english-dictionary.us/meaning/fap.asp

Fap can be used in scrabble therefor it IS a word. You don't want to be f*cking with Scrabble now do you???
The army is exactly like Boys Scouts .... except Boys Scouts are supervised by adults.
