A Frightening Dream - Our Existence - Our Immortality.

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .






A Frightening Dream - Our Existence - Our Immortality.
......... Am I merely a figment of someone else's imagination?

I had a frightening dream.

In it, all of the people I'd every met became extraordinarily busy and began to forget about me (picture the lights going off one by one in a giant office building against the Manhattan autumn night sky), and little by little, I began to fade away until I no longer existed, and I no longer felt, and I melted into the timeless backdrop of what and whom had never been.

It is a sobering thought to know how much of our self-image, self-esteem and the very validation of our existence comes from what others think and say about us.

Is it possible that the lives we touch are our only real existence and our only true immortality?

Thinking about this reminds me of the old conundrum about "If a tree falls in a forest, and nobody is there to hear it..."

Faithfully,

Douglas Castle

BLUE THING #10: Lingovation of the Week - ENHANCED!

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



Hey, Comrade Brainsters! It's time for LINGOVATIONS! (Google it if you must)

This "piece" (and we don't mean that term loosely) has been snatched from The BLUE TUESDAY Report just for you. Uh - Oh....I hear the sirens!
---------------
 



BLUE THING #10: LINGOVATION OF THE WEEK. JA!

***This is a special Thanksgiving Treat....a repeat of last week's delightful Lingovation taken from The BLUE TUESDAY Report, with some additional celebrity endorsements, commentary and links! Warning! This Lingovation is genetically enhanced and may contain nuts.

Dear Friends:

As you may or may not know, a Lingovation is a newly-created, freshly-coined word, often comprised of a hybrid or contraction of several existing words, which comes into being when no other single existing word or word combination (and sometimes not even an entire paragraph!) can precisely express the thought. They are not nonsensical terms, and must indeed be taken very seriously.


TECHNULLITY – Any much-heralded, long-awaited device which is so complicated to set up and use that you store it in a drawer (or in some other safe place) thinking that you’ll get to it when you have some time to dedicate to reading the instruction manual and to “program” it, which cannot ever be located again, but which is not missed except for the fact that it frightens you into thinking that you may be suffering from some type of premature dementia, or were subjected to an alien abduction.

One subcategory, the “FRAGMENTATIONAL TECHNULLITY” is the same type of device which comes with many small parts, each one of which is vital to the functioning of the total device, and none of which can be replaced for less than several times the entire cost of the device, which has long since ceased to be manufactured due to its having been replaced (months or years earlier) by a newer version.

Ironically, TECHNULLITIES are almost never CRAPPLICATIONS (refer to theLingovation Posting of two weeks ago in The BLUE TUESDAY Report for the definition of this latter term).

Note: That Douglas Castle coined the terms "TECHNULLITY" and "TECHNULLITIES", but the term "CRAPPLICATIONS" has been playing the circuit (the internet circuit) for some time. Castle and TNNWC get big points for TECHNULLITY, but (sigh...) none for CRAPPLICATION. Darn.


p.s. If after reading the LINGOVATION above, you have some idea of your very own for a new LINGOVATION, simply press on the button which follows (it says "Submit My Original Lingovation") to submit your new word and its definition, and we will make you famous...well, perhaps just somewhat famous. We will get your Lingovation a very high ranking on all of the search engines -- that much is assured!


The button.....

A brief word from our Sponsor, Albert Einstein, who is deceased at the moment, having suffered (apparently) at least one too many electroconvulsive therapy treatments:












We, at TNNWC Group have also received high praise from none other than... presidential hopeful Sarah "Mama Grizzly" Palin! Who knows where our next celebrity endorsement (or next meal, for that matter) will be coming from? Perhaps Michael Vick? Perhaps Paris Hilton??? Lingovations -- we were nothing before they came into existence.

















LINGOVATIONS!

MORONYMS - A New Lingovation - Douglas Castle

MORONYMS - A New Lingovation - Douglas Castle

A Pre-Thanksgiving post originally published simultaneously (well, almost) on the BRAINTENANCE BLOG and on The TNNWC RSS Feed and Daily Email Supplement Blog.

Dear Cranial Crunchers:

If you've never heard the term "Lingovation," (because you have been held captive in an underground interrogation facility in Samoa, for example), you may want to Google the term. If you are involved in a dispute with Google, and don't want to give them your business (as if they'd really miss you), a handy definition follows below:

"As you may or may not know, a Lingovation is a newly-created, freshly-coined word, often comprised of a hybrid or contraction of several existing words, which comes into being when no other single existing word or word combination (and sometimes not even an entire paragraph!) can precisely express the thought. They are not nonsensical terms, and must indeed be taken very seriously." - Douglas Castle

Lingovations are regularly featured in TNNWC Group's The BLUE TUESDAY Report. At the time of this writing, the latest featured Lingovation in the Report can be found by going to Technullity.  If you wish to see "Technullity" in all of its splendor you can visit it by clicking on either Google Technullity or Yahoo Technullity. Note:Subscribe to The BLUE MONDAY Report (it's free) and get fresh and hysterical Lingovations weekly -- http://bit.ly/JoinTNNWC .

Today, a Lingovation has been born of necessity (and due to my need to take a rest from getting prepared (i.e., picking out a suit of armor and a musket) for the Thanksgiving holiday.

You have heard of antonyms, homonyms and synonyms -- we've spoken of them before. I propose something far more special...MORONYMS. The term is a combination of the root words Moron and "-nyms," the latter being a suffix meaning "words" or "names". MORONYM (singular) and MORONYMS (plural) are the utterings of the ill-informed or verbally accident-prone. The accent is on the first syllable - mor' .

Within this class are some malaprops, spoonerisms (it's enough to give you fart hailure!), words with extra syllables in the middle (preventatative medicine, and becoming "orientated" to the new surroundings), horrific mispronounciations and other ridiculous things which people say by accident or because they have done more reading than listening. Here are some more examples:

"I have to have this witnessed before a Notary Republic."

"She lives in a very lucrative neighboorhood."

"I love the way you talk. You are so verbose!"

"Nuclear" pronounced as "New-cu-lar."

" I seen him millions of times." (a bit of hyperbole thrown in, too)

"Sorry. My Bad." (an ebonically-derived expressed adopted by "The Man"). Try saying this in a corporate board meeting.

"If you try it, well then it's ON YOU!" Note: This is only appropriate when discussing things like super-carbonated beverages, moving vats of liquids, and the like...and even then, its grammatically incorrect.

"Your car engine is caddywumpussed up. I'll take two days to repair it."

"What in tarnation do you think that you're doing?"

"We now have twelve board of directors!" (translated: "We now have twelve Directors on our Board").
---------------

See you all soon (a virtual possibility).

In the meantime, enjoy the Holiday. As I've said before (at the commencement address of my graduating class at Hummus State College Of Fraternal Medicine)..."Gentlemen. Ladies. At Thanksgiving time, always remember who's stuffing whom." - Amen

Faithfully,

Douglas Castle
