Egoogetter

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: ēgoōgetər

Sentence: To say that John is ego-centric is like saying that the sun is a little bit larger than the moon. He is the premier egoogetter.

When he didn't get as many hits as he wanted he found a website where he could legally change his last name to Doe. It doesn't matter that the hits don't refer to him specifically, he just loves to see his name. He gets practically giddy when he watches a crime show and they have an unidentified male victim.

Paranerdia

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: para-NER-dee-uh

Sentence: When Chip sat down at his 286 Laptop, the first thing he checked was his e-mail. Verbotomy came next, then a brief look at Myspace to see which spammer had a crush on him. After a quick look at the bleakness of Facebook and a quick foray into E-Bay for a fruitless search for trinkets, he inevitably succumbed to PARANERDIA and Googled all the usernames he ever used...just to be sure his aliases weren't taken over by foreign terrorists. Chip was extremely dismayed when he discovered that "Metrodad" still existed on a crappy "free" dating site called AmericanSingles which he foolishly posted ten years ago, in a late night rush of drunken optimism. Now there was a permablob about him in the etherial cyberuniverse of the WorldWideWaste which no power on earth could remove, and constantly nurtured his latent PARANERDIA now rising within his breast like the feeble winter sun he had come to loathe.

Etymology: PARAnoia+NERD+paranoIA=PARANERDIA......PARANOIA:a psychosis characterized by systematized delusions of persecution or grandeur usually without hallucinations,excessive or irrational suspiciousness and distrustfulness of others, including websites; New Latin, from Greek, madness, from paranous demented, from para- + nous mind........NERD: an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person ; especially : one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits;perhaps from nerd, a creature in the children's book If I Ran the Zoo (1950) by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Geisel).

I think a paranerdia is twice as bad as a single one! - Nosila, 2008-11-14: 23:55:00
