    Obviously you’ve not seen this. http://quatrainman.blogspot.com/2003/05/ccclxv-diem-annus-blogus-in-past-i.html

    Im personally fascinated by the whole concept. You’ll find a whole fandom on the net based on it. Words, you’ll find are so much more interesting than you think. I loved the process of “mugging” words for the GRE. IMHO its an exercise everyone must undertake.

    These words though pointless are interesting . And given my quizzer instincts I tend to look at a heap of information and remember the most useless of the lot. So ,yeah , I’ll definately remember these words for a long long time.

    And that post was written 4 years before I started blogging / reading blogs. So obviously I’ve not read it. It is a funny article but ‘boustrophedon’ IS a pointless word.

    Stupid Question to nib:

    Do you plan to right like this?

    “Avnish has now outdone himself and come up
    makes it that pointless so is that word a
    orrery look very very useful.”

    Or like this?

    “Avnish has now outdone himself and come up
    a drow taht si os sseltnoip taht ti sekam
    orrery look very very useful.”
