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

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: uh-GOG-uh-LIG-uh-LEE-djun

Sentence: Whilst wandering wistfully around the Metropolis,Wallace wondered at the latest AGOGALIGALEGION that had formed outside.Masticating mavens of merchandising made many miscreants marvel at the multitudes which had massed at the megamall. The latest coordinated assault of capitalism has resulted in the simultaneous release of The Movie, The Book, The CEEDEE and The Action Figures...and now the riot squad was getting restless. The number of demented devotees was exceeded only by the record-breaking box office receipts. Clad in their officially-endorsed uniforms, the AGOGALIGALEGION surged forward uncontrollably. This could be worse than the time the bottom dropped out of the Pokemon market. Wallace watched warily as the pumps were primed on the water cannon...

Etymology: AGOG+LIGAture+LEGION=AGOGALIGALEGION___AGOG:full of intense interest or excitement;Middle French en gogues in mirth___LIGATURE:something that is used to bind;something that unites or connects…Middle English,from Latin ligatus, past participle of ligare to bind, tie___LEGION:a very large number; Middle English, from Anglo-French, from Latin legion-, legio, from legere to gather.
