One Million Hardcore Members

(You know when you're making barely recognizable references to The Warriors, you're pretty much assuming all your readers are techno fans. Which may be true.)

But anyways, I've been meaning to post something about this for a few weeks, and was just reminded about it: The English Language: 900,000 Words, and Counting

An organization called Global Language Monitor estimates there are more than 900,000 words in the English language, and more are being added every day. Alex Chadwick talks with Paul Payack, president of Global Language Monitor, about his organization's method of counting words and the quickly approaching one-million-word milestone.

Really, I only bring this up because I believe each and every one of us is morally obliged to do our part to help the English language reach its seventh digit. Therefore, I expect everyone who reads this to make up at least one new word each week. Get cracking.

On a completely tangential note--which I may have brought up before--I totally get the coolest ads.
EDIT:
I found my favorite part:

Building upon the sucesses of our acute research probes, we are thrilled to offer the chronic probes for research. The front end of the chronic probes (the penetrating shanks) is basically the same as that of the acutes, but the chronic probes have an integrated silicon ribbon cable that is flexible in the direction that is normal to the brain surface. Although our probes are almost plug and play, surgical technique is especially important for the success of the chronic experiments.
