There is a word for fear of friday the thirteenth. Unfortunately, it's so stunningly latin that it's frankly very difficult to slip into everyday conversation: paraskevidekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia, depending on who you ask.

A message for whoever dreamed up these monstrous bastards: for fucks sake, guys: people have to say words. Remember what we used language for in the first place? And you come out with crap like that. I mean, honestly..

Isn't it amazing that even though us European peoples were conquered, subjegated, and forced to convert to christianity by Romans, we still use their language (latin) for everything we want to sound important.

I propose we do the opposite! Maybe Native Americans would feel better if we adopted one of their languages for science/medical words. At least then they could get jobs teaching it to us.

What exactly is wrong with Anglo-saxon English, exactly? I like it's incredible bluntness: "it's not a bloody restaurant, it's a food shop."

Now, tell me that's hard to say?

I propose a new word for fear of friday the thirteenth: friday-the-thirteenth-o-phobia. It's got it all: easy to understand and pronounce! Go me, I say.

You're still relying on the crutch of "o-phobia", Interference! Why not "friday-the-thirteenth-fear", and someone afflicted with it would be "friday-the-thirteenth-a-feared". Then we'd have to acronymize it: FTTF and FTTAF respectively.

Acronyms and compounds words are the WAVE OF THE FUTURE!

Compound words are the best thing the germans ever did for us.

Well, apart from making Nazis. What would comic books, video games, and movies be like without Nazis?

Let alone flame wars.

Their cars are ok too, I suppose.

Yes, Nazis. Without Nazis I swear blind we'd never have:

Imperial Stormtroopers
The Doctor Who episode Genesis of the Daleks
World War 2 first-person shooters
Weird pornography

Or Hellboy!
Or Neocons! :D

Hellboy! Yes! I've just started reading those: the local library finally got some in. Damn, have I been missing out!

Incidentally, I have Hellboy the Game: universally described as one of the worst games ever made. Which is a shame considering the source material is so good, although not entirely surprising considering Cryo made it. I have never played it and the box remains wrapped in plastic. I plan to never open it. I bought it for 3 quid.

Incidentally, here is a list of comicbooks I have read this year. I recommend them all:

The Ballad of Halo Jones
Global Frequency: Detonation Radio
Transmetropolitan: Back on the Street
Transmetropolitan: Gouge Away
Transmetropolitan: Year of the Bastard
Transmetropolitan: The New Scum
Shade: The Changing Man
Hellblazer: Original Sins
Promethia: Books 1 - 4
Supreme: Story of the Year
A Small Killing
Captain Britain

.. And some other stuff, names of which currently escape me. Allan Moore and Warren Ellis are bloody magnificent.
