Ebrainsupport

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: e brain sup port

Sentence: After the heavy use of electronic devices, multimedia cell phones, greyberries and computers, dependency occurs: the human brain ceases to function independently, and requires ebrainsupport systems to think. While on ebrainsupport, an individual can produce thought, make basic decisions, access memory stored on the system. Consider Ella here: her ebrainsupport remembers her name for her and can do many things for her. Unfortunately, those who reach brain death and require ebrainsupport lose a sense of who they really are - personality becomes redundant.

Etymology: From LIFE SUPPORT and electronic = electronic brain support system.

Pronunciation: cell-u-rab-bot

Sentence: Mary was so fanatical about her blackberry that her friends were becoming concerned that it was controlling her. They couldn't understand how a grown woman could be so gaga for a gadget.

"I'm texting you a question," Mary replied. Her friend grabbed the phone away from her and shouted, "Cellurabot, texts are for kids."

Etymology: (from an old cereal commercial that featured a cartoon rabbit: "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids") cellular: cell phone/cell network + rabid: fanatical, extreme + bot: (short for robot) an infected computer that becomes a zombie under the control of a master computer
