like south american self abhortration? that's extra deadly because bad stuff always comes from the jungle. ironically, all the best cures could probably be found in the jungle. - jadenguy, 2007-06-05: 09:21:00

Pronunciation: dop pel dij it eyze

Sentence: Dorothy liked to communicate with many on-line friends. She felt much safer and sexier by having her real photo go through a doppeldigitze process, so that she looked younger, fairer, thinner and more attractive and possibly even a richer persona. Of course, at this rate, she could never risk meeting these friends in person, lest they see they had been fooled. What she failed to understand was that they also doppeldigitized themselves, so that she could never recognize them from their photo-shopped images. Sadly, these were the most honest and real friends she had ever cultivated.

Etymology: Doppel (German for Double; a Doppelganger is someone's exact double, thought by many to be seen on a different parallel as an exact double or even an evil twin) & Digitize (put into digital form, as for use in a computer;to change into computer format)
