Telecomaddict

Created by: CanadianAndyCapp

Pronunciation: Tell-eh-kom-add-ikt

Sentence: Such is the addictive and intrusive nature of the personal telecommunications explosion that it seems one cannot travel on public transit, walk in the street, sit in a park, visit a museum or art gallery without being assaulted by the jarring noise of someones cell phone or crackberry and the absolute insistence of the owner to immediately stop whatever they are doing to answer it. These telecomaddicts even get agitated or offensively angry if it is suggested they turn off these electronic devices and soon begin to exhibit classic symptoms that were previously associated with alchohol and drug withdrawal. Perhaps the story "Caves of Steel" is not so far fetched as it appeared when it was first published. THE LUDDITES WERE RIGHT!!!!!!

Etymology: Telecommunication- The subversive intrusion of electronic brainwashing and individual isolation through the disguise of increased freedom of communication. / Addict- The recipient of telecommunication

Tranxiety

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: trang zye it ee

Sentence: Cella was experiencing it again. That feeling of tranxiety that she only felt while travelling on a train and losing her cell connection. Even if it was only momentarily, she was so addicted to her connections, that being without them, even temporarily, made her feel like a druggie without a fix. The truly sad part was that she was only calling the Weather station to find out the local temperature. It was seriously time for Cella to talk to her tranxichologist about her dependency. What the heck did people do before the onslaught of mobile communications???

Etymology: Transit/transport (to make a passage or journey from one place to another/a state of being carried away by overwhelming emotion;move something or somebody around; usually over long distances)& Anxiety ( a vague unpleasant emotion that is experienced in anticipation of some (usually ill-defined) misfortune;a relatively permanent state of anxiety occurring in a variety of mental disorders)
