hylactic: n. one suffering from hylactia, a syndrome in which one has an irrational, uncontrollable urge to clip another's fingernails (or less commonly, toenails)

Hylactics usually have a difficult time at social functions, as they keep prying off fellow partygoers' shoes to satisfy their clipping desires.

hylactic - An addict of exercise; c2 hylaxis, the condition also known as "second wind" or "running through the wall". Hylaxis is "runner's high", and a hylactic is someone addicted to the experience.

hylactic n. pertaining to any excuse to take a day off; akin to workitis or an exaggerated hangover.

So surprised to be hit with a hylactic episode Janet immediately called in to advise a temporary absence.

The "Boffin in a Coffin" Einstein Memorial Award relatively goes to Coffee for:


Hylactic: n. (astronomy)

The upper 1/2 or northern section of a galactic disc. Since "upper" could be subjective in galactic terms, the convention is to assign north as the upper portion based on an orientation of the disc when galactic spin direction is viewed as counter-clockwise. See also-Sublactic.

hylactic: n. one suffering from hylactia, a syndrome in which one has an irrational, uncontrollable urge to clip another's fingernails (or less commonly, toenails)

Hylactics usually have a difficult time at social functions, as they keep prying off fellow partygoers' shoes to satisfy their clipping desires.

Marcus Bales takes the “Way Too Logical” Book Prize and incurs the penalty of First Place

fucoid
a large seemingly random mistake.

i.e. My company thinking to boost morale began a "FUN" campaign. They constructed Eight foot tall letters in the employee entrance spelling out FUN. The fucoid in all of this was that all you could see while walking down the 100 feet of hallway was the first two letters because the N was hidden behind the corner. Employee's have speculated that that is how the company actually feels about them...a giant "FU"

fucoid - an ominous lingering

After Vince made the french-vanilla-flavored coffee iin kitchen across the hall, the scent was fucoid throughout the floor, causing us to seek refuge outside amongst the smokers.

fucoid (adj) Cloudy or murky with the implication of something too disgusting to think about.

They tried not to look at the fucoid waters of the sewer but the smell couldn't care less where they were looking and knocked them unconscious anyway.

fucoid n.

Sexual residue.

Fortunately, fucoid washes out of bed linen quite easily.
