Influmenza

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: in flu men zah

Sentence: The total world population, per the 2008 estimate by the United States Census International Programs Center is 6,679,493,900. As of February 2009, the world's population is estimated to be about 6.76 billion. Overcrowding and people pollutions are wreakening our planet. Terra caught a influmenza and is in a dangerous state of flux.

Etymology: INFLUENZA, MEN. Men - in the broader sense of the word, is often used to mean all people. Influenza - a widespread illness. Ergo: If the world has caught a wide spread illness from too many men, it suffers influmenza. /// Wreakening is a verbotomy of wreak and weakening. /// The last word flux, means not only a state of constant change, but archaically was a term for severe diarrhea ... something mankind needs to stop inflicting on our planet.

Homocreatoxic

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: ho-mo-crea-toxic

Sentence: The guide pointed out the window and announced to the group of tourists, "This is an example of a homocreatoxic planet." Sadly, it is systematically being destroyed by the dominant species who either does not recognize or isn't concerned by the signs of impending demise. This is the only planet we've seen thus far that has come to this particular form of extinction. Anthropologists say that it once was like a garden with fields, mountains, oceans and millions of diverse creatures. This is as close as we can get to the planet without risking contagion. Now, let's move on to Saturn's exquisite rings..."

Etymology: Homo: (Latin) man/mankind + Creation: (creationism)the world as it was created by a creator + Toxic: poisonous, often by chemical means

Flu...ooo...moon, I saw you standing alone...without a dream in your heart...without a love of your own." Song of the Day, dedicated to Silveryaspen! - readerwriter, 2009-04-22: 10:47:00

Enjoyed your sentence, mweinmann - well crafted. - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:18:00

Silvery Moon is more fitting as a song for me, readerwriter. 'Sail along silvery moon, sail along lovers' lane, sail along silvery moon, to my love again!" There's another old verse about the moon I like "Oh, the moon shines east and the moon shines west, but I like the moonshine they make next door best!" - silveryaspen, 2009-04-22: 11:22:00
