And I believe I was correct about pedal being foot.

puber-, pubo-, pub-, pubio- +

So we still don't know what the hell a pubio pedal phalanx is. A big toe? Hee hee...that's my guess.


Nope, big toe is halux.

Well then clever clogs, I hope you get eaten by one after a sudden vortex opens up in the Spacetime Continuum.

Pterodactyl is a word.

It's just not a proper term anymore. The correct term nowadays is pterosaur.

If Michael Crichton used it in Jurassic Park, it's a word. I like the word too, Black Bart.

Another good dinosaur- ankylosaurus. And who can forget the Masiakasaurus knopfleri, named after Mark Knopfler of the Dire Straits.

I still hope Zankou gets eaten by a Pterodactyl...not much chance I know...more chance of me being impregnated by Virtual Xenomorphs.

Cacography... handwriting so loud it can't be read without earplugs?

Quagmirific... A state of euphoria common only to quaqmirophiles, usually involing total body immersion in unlikely quantities of muck?

Are you sure you invented those?

If I didn't invent them, then there is ANOTHER really weird person out there who must have thought of them before me.

Cacography: complete dissonance in writing

Quagmirific: being completely and solely definable as a quagmire, to the point of total awesomeness in the face of identifying it as anything else.

Well, I'll grant the really weird part, but I'm quite positive noone got to those beauts before you. And I tip my hat to you on Quagmirific... that definition is a thing of beauty.
