        I have nothing against new words, but ones with a "g" or a "j" sound just don't agree with me.  pejorative, subrogation, synergy  - you get the idea.  


        Subrogation is bestest, cause it sounds like algrebra:


        commonly an insurer (I-X) of another party (X), steps into X's shoes, so as to have the benefit of X's rights and remedies against a third party such as a defendant (D).

        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

          Okay, honestly, how many of you knew the meaning of supererogatory before stadjak extended our little minds?  My hand is down.


          My hand is down.

          2017 Goals:

          #1: Do what I can do (200+ training days, 200+ aerobic hours). 

          #2: Race shape (1/2 marathon, 2 half Ironmans, marathon)

          #3: Prepare for 2018


            The opposite of subrogation is superrogation.


            Or maybe superergation.

                Supererogatory movies

                 Santorum is against supererogatory movies.  Cause they damage young minds and stuff.


                Did I just politicize this thread?

                  only hard core supererogatory. 

                  In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion





                    Rush wants to watch supererogatory movies of sluts in action.  There.  Fully politicized.

                      While you guys rant on about something, I'm going for a run...and if I win against myself, it better not be by cheating on me.

                      "Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'"  - Peter Maher


                      "Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run."  -Monte Davis

                        This was actually a moment when the ten-cent word was actually the best and most precise way to describe the act. Well done, Stadjak.

                          You guys are real funny .. Smile Good to know runners have a sense of humor ..


                          Abe_mend .. to your earlier post on what i meant ... it wasnt definitely anything that deserved so much airtime .. i have made my thoughts/feelings on the topic quite explicit in my posts on this thread .. and there is no right or wrong here .. just a matter of opinion. Dont you think what Landy did with Ron Clarke was amazing?


                          Stadjak .. there is a hilarious email somewhere in my archives on what the normal guy says and what the GRE dude would say ..i remember a couple ..

                          Normal Guy: All that glitters is not gold.

                          GRE Guy: All metaphysical objects that coruscate with resplendence are not necessarily auriferous.
