clapping.gif Terra, Ken, Edders, Cleft and my self were sitting around the city discussing words that we make up and their meanings...

I thought that it would be fun to start a thread with these things.

Do you say anything that is exclusive to you and your personality?

For example, Ken was running about kicking cones and Edders suggested that he had "Coneaphobia" (a fear of cones). roll.gif

Also an example, in another thread I suggested that Marth might have "Llama envy" (wanting to become a llama) and "Yeeshaitis" (a fear of all things Yeesha) lmao.gif

Since Edders threw out out the 1st definition, I suggested that we call this collection of words and definitions the "Edders dictionary" lmao.gif

I'd love to hear any additions...

Well, you know those little puns and (mis)quotes with the word "cone" replacing other things we sit around making as odes to the cones? I've always thought of them as "cone-isms".

Coning: (n) similar to college hazing, it involves the target individual being required to stand on the landing of the Great Stairs and be pummeled with cones.

Can also be associated with the act of stacking a "tomb" of cones of sorts over an /afk avatar.

an -itis, is an inflamation, so that would be an inflamation of your yeesha.
i'd think that it was yeeshphobic.

reltosplat- when you link from your closet back to relto and you nose dive thru your relto and end up with camera 10 feet underground.

conephase- when jumping on a cone causes it to fall thru what was considered a solid floor

conebyosis- when your avi is one with the cone as it falls thru the floor. o_0

at one point i was part of the heek worshiping clan of UO(4), had a pic of 5 of us, one on each corner of the heek table bowed to the symbol in the middle.

wonder if any one still has that pic smile.gif

MOGLOG -- I have used this since live even before I new anyone here. It stands for Multi Organism Graphical LOGjam...the horrble frankensteinian monster, many-limbed and hydra-headed, that is created when multiple players link in to a single point, say the ferry terminal and are stuck in place, immobile, looking out through each other's eyes or staring into the hollowness of someone else's empty head.

nerf.
