Starry, starry night.

Concusstellation

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: kon kus stel lay shun

Sentence: Brain Injury researchers,Dr. Gene Yuss and his assistant, Dr.Sara Bellum had been working on their thesis that the more often you bonked someone's cranium, the more stars that they could see. They had even gotten grants from NASA to pursue their concusstellation theory. They worked very hard at hitting each other on the head to test their theory. The only problem with their work was that you could only do it so long before you died or got permanent damage, so we'll never know what their final findings actually were. No wonder NASA also looks for evidence of intelligent life forms on other planets...

Etymology: Concussion (injury to the brain caused by a blow) & Constellation (a configuration of stars as seen from the earth)

Traumastrology

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: trouməəsträləjē

Sentence: Sidney (aka Lumpy) is working on a new field of study, traumastrology. It is the study of how a person is effected by the alignment of the stars that occur just after a blow to the head. He has worked for years to perfect just the right whack to the noggin. Too little and there are no stars, too much and the ability to gather data is lost. His theory is that a Pisces would react differently than a Taurus to the same concussive event. He may never know. He just can't seem to recruit test subjects. Friends think he has studied a bit too much on his own.

Etymology: trauma (physical injury) + astrology (the study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world)
