Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: vir-tu-am-knee-ze-yal

Sentence: Vince spent so much time in his Second Life that he was virtuamnesial.

Homeless and penniless, he took his laptop to Starbucks and returned to his virtual kingdom that didn't suck.

Etymology: Virtual: 1) existing in essence or effect, but not appearance or form, 2) being actually such in almost every respect--such as a virtual wreck 3) a computer generated simulation + amnesia: a partial or total loss of memory, usually resulting from a shock, psycological disturbance or brain injury. "Second Life" -- a virtual world that people can create where they can live vicariously as the person they wish they really would be.

Immortified

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: ihm-mohr-tih-feyed

Sentence: Siggie's Id had always claimed he was immortal. His Superego told him if he ate his veggies, was a good boy, watched out for fast cars and bad women he might not die too young. But, looking in the mirror that day, his deflated Ego was immortified as he realized his real identity could no longer bounce between the other two. He was becoming self-fractualized!

Etymology: Blending IMMORTAL, meaning exempt from death + MORTIFIED (from the Latin/French MORT, meaning death), meaning humiliated. References are playing with Freud's theories of personality development and Maslow's self-actualization. (What do I know???)
