11th august. It is still there : https://mobile.twitter.com/DPRK_News

It's a parody account, not run by North Korea!

This tweet from 15th Aug is a dead giveaway.

"Marshal Kim Jong-Un to blot out sun over skies of United States on August 21, 2017, in awesome display of DPRK space power."

And this:

"Marshal Kim Jong-Un bests all competitors in annual Pyongyang Chili Cook-Off, consuming 820 quarts of chili and over 100 crackers." Aug 13

For a while I also believed it was real and laughed in utter amusement at the language of the tweets - until I saw those lol.

Scam- 1.

a confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, especially for making a quick profit; swindle.

2.

to cheat or defraud with a scam.

3.

A person who enjoys doing the definitions above, often repeats false information with an ulterior motive to unsuspecting people in order to cheat them and give him/herself a confidence boost or a "high". They are addicted to themselves. Usually insecure about themselves in the first place, they lie to get their high.

4.

Anyone who promotes a false, half-baked ideology/belief/idea/product, based on a fraudulent scheme or false purpose. Not necessarily the same as  the person in the third definition of scam.

Job Title Change for anchor.

Since the late 1950s, nightly news central presenters were called anchors because after each report a return to the anchor facilitated coordination and coherence to the next report.

Now, with the change in tone and function and intention, the hype and cause celebre, these central presenters are now called Announcers.

Announcers hype the impending end-of-the-World disasters: hurricanes, snow storms, the Trump White House, lran-still-exists, a la the movie "The Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming", ...

So, my Favorite Word of the Day is:  News Announcer.

Today l coined another word, which I copywrite:

Donzilla -from "The Donald" and god-.zilla.

I was watching the original Godzilla -which is 1954 dubbed movie, without Raymond Burr- from the 01March54 irradiation of the Daigo Fukuryu-Maru (Lucky Dragon No.5). It is a "dark" movie.

The monster wades around in Tokyo Bay, threatening Kawasaki-shi, stomps over ground in Chiba-ken and so forth.

It didn't take much of a 'leap' to envision "The Donald" wading around in the Hormoz Straits and the gulfs of Oman and Persia -as a monster would- wreaking destruction.

RANK: 5 out of 5 for Political lncorrectness by the Weis Haus.

Vortexian

1. A person with a lack of brain cells and common sense.

1. "That man is such a Vortexian."

 

Also, a little off topic but I can taste words. I am a synesthete. (Look it up it's a real thing) 

For example the word "Auntie" tastes like raw egg. The word "tablet" tastes like sugar glass. The word chemical tastes like that bitter taste you get when shampoo gets in your mouth. etc. 

But some words don't actually have a taste at all for me...

Pendantic -  "like a pedant," someone who's too concerned with literal accuracy or formality. It's a negative term that implies someone is showing off book learning or trivia, especially in a tiresome way.

 

I like it because I feel like people who use the word pendantic are in fact acting pendantic lol

A few moments gao, l was listening to a travel show and the announcer mispronounced "indescribable" in such a way l can now coin a new word from 'scribble': indescribble.

Example:  My mother's handwriting was so bad it was indescribble.

A subtle change of spelling, but a fun word nonetheless.

I think the correct spelling is 'pedantic.'

And this is the longest word in the English language: 

pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis

It is a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, especially from a volcano.

Medically, it is the same as silicosis.
