Sentence: It's not often that we get to stare into the Sun and feel good about it after, and this certainly wasn't one of those times for Darian. His decorrigibility still astounded his brother on new levels, his rIcarus feat less successful with the assistance of plexiglass eyewear.

Etymology: de + corrigible de is pretty obvious. i picked corrigable, because i think that once you've made the mistake, you can learn from it, but then you unlearn from it and commit it again, so that's how you know it's stupid even when you repeat it.
