Swimming in a sea of useless discovery – ep1

Having read a lot, I’m familiar with quite a few English words. One of them is quite unpopular in the Internet to the extent of being unused. The word as well as its denotation is elucidated by Clippy below. 🙂

It’s just fun to note that no one really used that word in the Internet except for an AnimeSuki forums poster. I didn’t even expect that word to be unfamiliar, but if it isn’t found in even the different online dictionaries it must be. (Or I’m just a guy who utilizes even archaic English. But it’s FUN!) If you don’t believe me, however, you can just

Google

I kid, I kid.

Other notable things in the anime ‘blogosphere’ is that there’s a site with an unbelievable amount of comments. He has 1922 for one post, another 1600+ for another, and 99 for another. Check it out here.

Of course, most of those comments are spam. Seems like somebody didn’t install Akismet. :V

(Now that I look at it, this isn’t even funny. I fail. I’m sorry. I don’t mean offense to those sites I’ve referred to, however. *sighs*)

    Nope … I discovered a few things about … the word use and a popular blog, in all senses of the word, skewed. 😀

    Aha~ I should have known. Man, maybe you should hold back on using high-faluting words when we’re around. Kinda makes me realize how shallow my knowledge of English is. 😛

    Funnily, I regard my English as the “layman’s everyday English” while yours is more of a “gentleman scholar/Vocabs nerd English”…

    No offense intended there, dude. 😀

    No offense taken. It was just on a whim that I discovered that ZMOG! no one used that word in the Internet at ALL. That’s … unique – that word must be archaic or obsolete; ‘happenstances,’ although relatively archaic, is used more or less more often than that word. Even dictionary.com doesn’t have a definition for that word. That’s JUST SO COOL and … OK ON TO OTHER THINGS.

    I was really just flabbergasted – that occurrence was SO AWESOME. My English is … um … unique?

  5. meganeshounen Says:

    Happenstances, eh? You must’ve meant “serendipity” there, orz

    And yes, as unique as Haruhi’s introduction.

    orz

    I guess …

    … but I really need to develop a sense of humor that caters to normalcy. People don’t find a seldom-used word funny? I DO. :V
