The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

He has returned from his adventure in the far reaches of the English language with a rich harvest of obscure and forgotten words to share: indispensable gems such as “deipnophobia” (fear of dinner parties) or “apricity” (the warmth of the sun in winter). In return he suffered back pain, problems with his sight and constant headaches.

Shocking really.
That bloody dictionary is giant!
I always laugh when I see the Oxford Concise English Dictionary in our college library. It's about the size of my desk work surface and pretty thick too.

I'm glad I read that article though, it would seem that I often am riddled with onomatomania.

As his book, Reading the Oxford English Dictionary, makes clear, Mr Shea’s feat failed to make him a better person, improve his conversation or make him appear more intelligent. Rather it turned him into a mafflard (a stuttering or blundering fool), bedevilled by onomatomania (vexation at having difficulty in finding the right word).


Yeah, complete waste of time.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.

Good for him, its more words than the average person reads, I guess.

Still a dork though.

Oh dear lord, this comment at the bottom of the article made me rage:

Quote by Christian
Correction: It's a feat for ANYONE to read the thing. I must say, however, that Shea's time would have been better spent reading the Bible just once. Anything we can do, God can do better. And to think that our Maker knows every language ever spoken, every book ever written, and us--inside and out.

It isn't considerably longer than both bible testaments, I don't see what's so special.

...It has a terrible plot though.

Quote by Flying Couch
I want to ask him how many synonyms for masturbation he discovered.


Very few, I would imagine. Unless you mean euphemisms.

No, I mean the full on oxford dictionary with 615,000 entries.

And I'm not talking about the school bibles either.

Same here. I'd like to go one article on the ****ing internet without these ****s preaching their crap everywhere. I don't care if you believe it yourself, but ****ing keep it to yourself then! I almost left an angry reply but then I know they'd get all defensive about it or just tell me I'm going to hell. It's useless.

Sorry, I know this shit belongs in the religion thread.

On topic, holy crap. I wonder if he has friends? O_o How do you seriously find enough time to read the entire effing Oxford Dictionary??

Shut the **** up. If you want Christians not to preach their beliefs on the internet, then don't post your shit either.

If you want to take other peoples' free speech away, then it has to work both ways.

Indeed; but what's irritating about that comment is how utterly irrelevant it was. Essentially the same comment could be applied to any pursuit.

Besides, getting angry at it is that selfsame free speech, so why does it bother you when that is the view you hold?

Quote by Portuguese_boy
Yes, that will probably get him laid.

He has a girlfriend, you know. He probably gets laid much more than you

I DU GET LAED, ASK UR MOTHER!!!

No but really, how can you get laid if you're to busy reading ****ing dictionaries, plus I don't think his girlfriend is very hot, I mean, and ugly fat girl wouldn't care if he prefers pounding books than her pussy, but a hot chick can replace him anytime.
