Sentence: ContraMarian is conversation sniper. She can and will find fault with anything that anybody says. She enjoys shooting down even the most innocent comment. Last week her skills almost brought about a disaster. She took a shot at a negasaurus and the resulting cynicism came close to creating a black hole that could have swallowed the earth. Luckily the ancient reptile was hungry and headed off in search of food.

Etymology: contrarian (a person who takes an opposing view, especially one who rejects the majority opinion) + Marian (a female given name, form of Mary)
