Hilarious.

NPCs on both sides are being sycophants and have adopted this word lately this week on ATS.

Your NPC actions have been noticed.

That is all.


^^

They probably only just learned the definition and thought it would be cool to throw it into sentences.

A lovely new word to be misused over and over again.

As Readers' Digest used to say, "It pays to increase your word power".

My high school English teacher would kill me for not knowing this.

My new favorite words are obfuscate, politicians do it all the time-(think of Rumsfeld's 'there are known unknowns' speech) and Demonym, which describes the denizens of a country e.g Iranians come from Iran, Japanese come from Japan, the irish come from Ireland...you get the gist.

I also like demonym because it has the word demon in it.

I always thought there was some genius in that speech...especially, "We don't know what we don't know."

Like or hate Rumsfeld, but that one statement speaks volumes, yet most misinterpret it (or don't understand it). It's not just some innocuous, non-sensical, idiotic statement. It means, literally, if there is something we don't know, then we don't know what that something is. In other words, if something exists and we don't know it, then we won't know to know it exists and therefore cannot be expected, in hindsight, to have known it existed.

Whoever thought that statement up was pretty sharp. It's actually a brilliant statement.

Thank you, you've managed to allow me to create another acronym using an extension one of my new favorite words!

P.O.S-Political Obfuscation Syndrome-where politicians divert from the real agenda. for example

Interviewer: Is the immigration policy working? yes or no?

Politician: Well we have safeguards but what I want to talk about is education, 'earn to learn, learn to earn' is our policy, no more three word slogans, we have outlined a plan to get as many children in schools as possible, because a bigger mind leads to a bigger income. And speaking of incomes the tax revenue-

Interviewer: Sir we were discussing immigration policy, is it working, yes or no?

Politician: Let me finish, the review on ritual abuse that we initiated when we came to office has been a resounding success, over ten thousand victims have been thrown a bone and we are proud to be the ones who threw those bones.

Interviewer: I'm not going to get a yes or no answer am I?

Politician: Not an effing chance.

OP about an 'arcane' word and no definition for the plebs?

Now people rely on their political cults now to learn their vocabularies?

Dont go pointing out the reality that all followers of corporate mainstream political cults (such as the DNC & GOP alike) are all NPC's. You rock the boat like that and you'll be stuck with me in the pariah gallery around these parts.
