Mubugtate: /mew-bug-tait/ People who mubugtate at parties always end up alone and locked in the bathroom either vomiting or counting the bathroom tiles. Computers who mubugtate at parties always end up being crashed through the window or locked in the bathroom vomiting. Etymology: mutate + bug (as in virus, and to annoy) Created by: remistram.

Chromotose: /KROME-eh-tose/ Luckily for Miranda the virus that had infected her unprotected computer was basically chromotose, it's underlying logic distorted and it was basically a dormant program that devolved rather than evolving. Etymology: Blend of 'chromosome' (One of the minute bodies into which the chromatin of the nucleus is resolved during mitotic cell division) and 'comatose' (in a state of deep and usually prolonged unconsciousness; unable to respond to external stimuli) Created by: Mustang.

Vermista: /verh-mihs-ta/ After it was exposed that Vermista was not the latest version of the world's largest computer operating system, its creators restructured and began growing the herb, Wormwood, and producing a remedy for intestinal worms they called Vermouthsta. When that failed they decided to produce a red dye and began breeding and then drying the bodies of the wood louse. They called it Vermilionista. After that failure, they thought about opening an Italian restaurant specializing in what they would call Vermicellista. But, alas, in the end they would not repent and on the Judgement Day they were sent to the place where "their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched." Etymology: From VERMIS, the Latin for worm. Created by: readerwriter.
