Words. (in Off-topic)

I make up words.

Hi, my name is Jack R. Nobody. I tell my mom all the time she could have done a better job at that, but all she ever says is, "Oh...YOU!" What does that mean, oh you.

I don't know what it means. I am not concerned with meanings, just words. I make up all the good words. "Shards". That was mine. You can have pieces of glass, or you can have "shards". YEAH! Oh, you bet that's better!

Word creation can be tricky. Even political. Did Dewey beat Truman? No, he "defeated" him (but not really). That's good stuff. You can't hold that in. Truth Defeats Fiction. Inspiration is a wonderful thing and blahblahblah. But the strength is in the word choice.

So be careful, folks. Just cogitate a bit. Churn. Make it all count, every syllable, every word, every phrase. Why blurt and waste it when you can mold and taste it?

You can pull the amplifier across the stage, or you could "lug" it.
You could use your BA, or you could "consume" it.
You could drive to the mall, or you just might "motor" there.

Verbs rock.

Have fun, fair citizens. Be you. Hell, go ahead and surprise yourselves.

That's powerful. Strong, even. I concur.

I prefer to say I "devour" my BA and that I uselessly "obliterate" any advantage my xp would have given me.

Indeed. One can "train" one's experience, or simply "nullify" it.

I prefer the latter.

Well, you're consuming something Chet, I'm just not so sure it's BA lol. Now, where can I use this in a sentence? Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

My friends and I "burn" BA. We'll literally be sitting around the house, one of us will look at the rest and say "ready to go burn?" and the rest of us know that he's talking about CB.

I motor. And I defenestrate [X], where X is a person making up words.

Shards of profundity for the vocabularily challenged! I love it! :)

I hope you don't think I'm trying to purloin your natural electrical phenomena, Chet. To the contrary, I'm starting the fan club!

I burn BA as well, also I run BA, I drop BA, or I kill my BA. =P

My ex always use to say, "Do you need to use your battle allocations?" I love the extra "s"... People seem to like adding esses...

Electric? Nah, more like Inductive. *smile*
