Learning is fun!

I learned two new words today: acarophilia and bogan. Perhaps I'll just go down the alphabet. Any other new words I should know?

(And yes, while the size of this post is perfectly suited for Facebook, it will stay here. Silliness over cross-posting is silly, but only because I don't understand why anyone would want to randomly post the comments to a Livejournal post [sans context] over to a Facebook wall.)

I also dig nested parentheticals.

I learned both of these words today, too!
(Bogan only because I looked it up because of you posting it here, mind you.)

Deme! In evolutionary biology, a deme an isolated population that actively interbreeds with itself and has a distinct gene pool. Demes can eventually speciate, given enough time and continued genetic isolation, and are often classified as subspecies if their gene pool is distinct enough.
