The Icktionary Project

Friday, May 24th, 2013

By Larry Smith

I guess I should be flattered that Clorox thinks I’d be good at coming up with diisgusting words for its new Icktionary project, “a wiki for the icky.” My love of word play is obvious; how they knew I had a penchant for the disgusting I’ll never know. (Perhaps someone tipped them off that I have a messy two-year-old boy?). On that note, one of the Icktionary terms I invented is “Mess-o-potamia.”

Mess-o-potamia
When a child has made such a disaster of your house that you’re ready for your whole world to collapse under its mess. More of my Icktionary contributions can be found on the site, where you can comment on icky terms you like and share your own.

You can check out more of my made-up messy words (got “droozle” anyone?), leave comments on any of the hundreds of other entries, watch icky videos, and share your own entry at the Icktionary project.

    One thing I would like to fodpdoss reply to is that fat reduction plan fast can be performed by the proper diet and exercise. People’s size not simply affects the look, but also the complete quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, and also physical ability are afflicted in putting on weight. It is possible to make everything right whilst still having a gain. Should this happen, a medical problem may be the offender. While a lot of food and not enough exercising are usually at fault, common medical conditions and trusted prescriptions could greatly help to increase size. Kudos for your post right here.

    Ok so I have looked around a lot on this matter and I keep finding stuff like VNC (or VNSea) that allows you to access the computers on your WiFi network, but all of these require you to install something onto the computer itself. Is there a way to access the computer WITHOUT even touching the computer?. . Thanks in advance!.

    Thanks for pdoijjsf this glorious article. One other thing is that a lot of digital cameras are available equipped with the zoom lens that enables more or less of your scene to generally be included by way of ‘zooming’ in and out. All these changes in focusing length are usually reflected inside the viewfinder and on substantial display screen right at the back of the exact camera.
