@knaivete,
Were it not for the use of 'member', I would assume you reside in Arkansas, USA.

I hope no one prevaricates the dinner rolls unless the oven temperature is reliable and independently corroborated by at least two rapacious auditors.

@neologist,
I was not loquacious, just gaudiloquent. (This is not to be confused with grandiloquent.)

@glitterbag,
You are always so floridly confabulating it borders on existential eclecticism.

This, from Fresco today, in the Could there possibly be an edge to existence itself. thread. It is a gem. And it sounds less forced than some of the ones offered here.


Quote:
Piaget was a seminal figure in the constructivist and systems transition approaches to cognition. Criticisms of him tend to center on his lack of attention to language, but the significance of his approach which aimed to "account for" logical thought, was that obviously he could not use "logic" within his exposition. Casual readers are usually not aware of the epistemological significance of that point, especially with respect to "metalogical " paradigms in frontier physics.

@neologist,
I agree. Frank provided an exemplar that clearly goes beyond the merely hypersuperfluous.

I'm interrupting just this once because I heard someone say something on TV that was just too good to be true. I was changing channels to get to a news station, but the bottom half of a Judge Judy show was still running. A young man was being sued for jumping on a friend sitting in a recliner. The friend wasn't injured, but the young man broke the recliner. His defense was that the homeowner failed to aware him the chair was broken so he shouldn't have to pay for repairs.

Can it get any better than that? The plaintiff didn't aware him quickly enough. Never in a million years would I have thought to make aware a verb. But the bar has been lowered. Annie bar the door.
