Traumastrology

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: trouməəsträləjē

Sentence: Sidney (aka Lumpy) is working on a new field of study, traumastrology. It is the study of how a person is effected by the alignment of the stars that occur just after a blow to the head. He has worked for years to perfect just the right whack to the noggin. Too little and there are no stars, too much and the ability to gather data is lost. His theory is that a Pisces would react differently than a Taurus to the same concussive event. He may never know. He just can't seem to recruit test subjects. Friends think he has studied a bit too much on his own.

Etymology: trauma (physical injury) + astrology (the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world)

Starry, starry night. Paint your black eye blue and grey, Look out on a winter's day, And watch out for the tree trunk in the snow Shadows on the hills, Sketch the trees and the daffodils, Catch the breeze and the winter chills, In colors on the snowy linen land. - Jabberwocky, 2009-02-19: 10:37:00

Concusstellation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kon kus stel lay shun

Sentence: Brain Injury researchers,Dr. Gene Yuss and his assistant, Dr.Sara Bellum had been working on their thesis that the more often you bonked someone's cranium, the more stars that they could see. They had even gotten grants from NASA to pursue their concusstellation theory. They worked very hard at hitting each other on the head to test their theory. The only problem with their work was that you could only do it so long before you died or got permanent damage, so we'll never know what their final findings actually were. No wonder NASA also looks for evidence of intelligent life forms on other planets...

Etymology: Concussion (injury to the brain caused by a blow) & Constellation (a configuration of stars as seen from the earth)

Astrogliaology

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: Ass tro leea olo gee

Sentence: Dr. Sara Brum and Dr. Cy Napps were doing research into the newly emerging field of Astrogliaology, which they had stumbled on by accident in their lab and immediately filed for patent. Their experiments were based on the theory that if the brain were subjected to enough blunt trauma that one could cross dimensions and grant one divination by the constellations. In other words, you could see stars. Loosely based on the Zodiac, these inner stars would be renamed: Pisces=Pia; Aries=Axon; Taurus=Temporal;Gemini=Gyrus; Cancer=Cortex; Leo=Lobes; Virgo=Ventricle; Libra=Limbic; Scorpio=Skull; Sagittarius=Suprachiasmatic; Capricorn=Cranium & Aquarius=Amygdala. The possibilities were endless...the good doctors envisioned millions of suggestable people paying large sums to have the stars in their heads read. Their Astrogliaology Techniques could be taught at Star Trek Conventions and Pschyic Fairs. The only downside to their theorum was the fact that one-too-many trips to the inner galaxies might leave some of their clients even more brain-dead than they already were...

Etymology: Astroglia (a type of glial cell that supports neurons;tissue consisting of large stellate neuroglial cells in the brain) & Astrology (a pseudoscience claiming divination by the positions of the planets and sun and moon)

I must have been in a sort of time-warp chronoanomaly when this one came down the pike, because i missed it completely. Very rich trove of Verbotomisms, though! Carry on!
