    Ugh, just a little too long to be a Scrabble word.

    Einstein later famously derided entanglement as "spukhafte Fernwirkung" or "spooky action at a distance".

    Coachella message boardies are Spukhafte Fernwirkung

    The electoral college is Spukhafte Fernwirkung

    Karin Dreijer is Uber Spukhafte Fernwirkung

    Randy the whole point of this thread is that my vocabulary is utter crap, especially for someone who has gotten a perfect score of the verbal component of pretty much every standardized test ever.

    But yes, I can figure out what cogitative means without looking it up. I just had never seen the word before.

    What do you typically score on the humility section of standardized tests?

    BOOM. But so true.

    The other day at a bar, I was invited to join the weeky happy hour for a local MENSA group. But then they found out I was a business student, and were all like, "Uhhh nevermind we were just joking."
