Cultasy

Created by: Stevenson0

Pronunciation: cul/tas/ee

Sentence: See 'Comments' below - My cultasy requires that I chant each morning and it distracted me and I put my sentence in the 'Comments' box. Please forgive me and may all the earthbound X-rays find your path today and lead you to freedom, purity and adventure.

Etymology: cult + fantasy

----------------------------
COMMENTS:

Jimmy and Jenny met at a 'X-Men' conference in New York last year. What they love most about their cultasy are the costumes and the chants recited three times a day in hopes that they will come in contact natural earth bound x-rays which will transform them like their heros. - Stevenson0, 2007-06-19: 07:56:00

My cultasy would be travelling in the Tardis. It would be great for holidays and shopping and you'd never have to worry about parking - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-19: 11:26:00

Or making phone calls. - Clayton, 2007-06-19: 12:30:00

You _could_ take the Tardis shopping, though the driver would probably drop you off a few decades either too early or too late. Depending on what you want to buy, this could be a good thing or a bad thing. Showing up 10 years late to buy a Wii: good. Showing up 10 years late to buy a limited-edition Pokemon card: bad. Showing up 100 years early to buy a personal computer: bad. Showing up 100 years early to buy a passenger pigeon: good. - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 16:57:00

You'd also probably have to save the lives, livelihoods, and/or rights of anyone who didn't die immediately upon your arrival, but that's a small price to pay, isn't it? - ErWenn, 2007-06-19: 16:58:00

Trekumenical

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: trek u men i kal

Sentence: According to the Annual fans of the Star Trek conventions worldwide, Gene Roddenberry's classic Star Trek TV series has evolved into a trekumenical phenomena. There is a King James T.

Anyone from any planet may join this faith...the only qualification is that the believer just took up space in school.

Etymology: Trek (referring of course to Star Trek) and Ecumenical (religion of worldwide scope or applicability; concerned with promoting unity among churches or religions)

borgiful! - remistram, 2007-06-19: 09:50:00

I like the "bonus word" you gave us - buycon. I'm assuming that's a capitalist icon? - bigdog, 2007-06-19: 16:08:00

Let's hear one for the borgs. - texmom, 2007-06-19: 17:29:00

Not sure that buycon is original, but it popped into my mind when I was thinking about all those toys I felt I had to buy for my son years ago. Yep, it's a capitalist icon. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-19: 18:00:00
