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.

Flubbaghast

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Flubb-err-gast

Sentence: Andrew staggered into the bathroom after thrashing that ugly Gnorm with his sixth-level paladin and was horrified to find a big bald fat man staring at him. "What the?" he gasped, his heart racing. The man gasped too and Andrew was suddenly flubbaghast to realise that man was himself. His fitted leathers and taught biceps were gone, as were his flowing mane of black hair, his majik sword and that 'strange aura of mystique' bestowed on him by the beautiful Sorceress of Tarneg. Before him stood a pasty white balding man in his thirties, obviously carrying more than twice the weight of his avatar and Andrew's wishteria simply could not reconcile the two. He gave in to his superfaction and switched the light off. Shadow-daemons beware! Andion the Brave is here and he's not happy..

Etymology: Flubber - blubbery, flubbery wobbly-ness; Also Flubber - confuse, fluster. Flub - make mistake or error; Aghast - horrified, shocked and appalled. As in being aghast on finding one's flubberiness and the flub of having missed it due to De Nial (and not de river). Also - Superfaction (Super + stupefaction) and Wishteria (Wish + hysteria)

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???)
