solemn: see November 9, 2016

“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.”

Rutger Hauer as replicant Roy Batty, Blade Runner (1982)

Word of the Day

Image result for falling in love

I can’t believe I didn’t know the word “sapiosexual” before today. Where have you been all my life! I am shamed. And shameful. And somewhat shameless.

You know how guys are often criticized for not looking past a person’s physical beauty, and women are always going on and on about how sexy it is when men chug beer, talk sports, and leave the toilet seat up? Well, you now have a word to add to your linguistic arsenal should you not be this shallow:

sapiosexual

noun

1.

a person who finds intelligence to be a sexually attractive quality in others.
adjective

2.

noting or relating to such a person.

 

Thank me later.

However, after doing my due diligence, I discovered that there is no antonym for this word. Consequently, and of significant consequence, I’d like to offer the Oxford English Dictionary (thank me later, OED) the Word of the Year for 2016:

trumpiosexual

noun

1.

a person who finds unrelenting ignoramuses, blockheads and sexual deviants to be a sexually abhorrent quality in others.
adjective

2.

noting or relating to such a person.
