You're missing a syllable on the second line.

5-7-5, I had it right in my head but ballsed it up in the typing.

Spherculist- Antidissestablishment?

Posted:Alack and Alas, but I don't think Antidisestabliment is a valid word - Antidisestablishmentarian would be the correct tense I believe. Sorry!

However, a few words which my bored mind came up with whilst procrastinating over study:

- Peripateticism (the practice of being constantly in motion)
- Lepidopterologist (one who studies butterflies)
- Myrmecotrophobia (I think? A fear of ants, I believe)

As such:


Oh, I should go back to biochem, my jokes are getting worse.

Posted:Hhhmm, you may be right, but I would argue that the Antidissestablishment is that group of people who are against the removal of state support/recognition of a religious body (ie it is the group made up of Antidissestablishmentarians). I just looked up Antidisetablishmentarian on an online dictionary and got the following response-:

"Pronunciation: (an"tē-dis"u-stab"lish-mun-tr'ē-un, an"tī-), [key]


a person who advocates antidisestablishmentarianism.


of or pertaining to antidisestablishmentarianism."

Is it just me or is that the least useful definition ever? Truely illustrative of the difference between knowledge and wisdom!
