Xenophilia

On the other hand, the very same strangeness may not only pique our interest, but blossom into xenophilia--an intrigued, fascinated love of that which is different.

The hard-liners also accused Hu of "xenophilia" for preaching an opening to the outside world, in particular to Japan.

I know, I just like to try to figure out what a word mean from context. Its way funner!

Then I give up and look at the definition, which in this case had nothing to do with turkeys or beds.

An apercu general of Turkish nationalism till the end of the First War World, died today in, ironically, his own bed.

Now I'm seriously impressed. Your Google Fu knows no bounds.

The company's military robots, meanwhile, can reconnoiter battlefields and other dangerous areas while troops stay out of harm's way.

Message boards abound where fans (who often remain anonymous) trumpet the virtues and bona fides for their favorite players and teams.

His bona fides are poor, but the principal (appealing Danielle Proulx) is rattled and desperate.

PCCare247 is a proverbial agnomen in doling out online technical support for computer and peripherals.

Quote
The other half is solving puzzles, some of which hide their solutions in plain sight, while others taunt players with obtuse, seemingly indecipherable clues.

http://opinion.publicfinance.co.uk/2012/04/tax-and-mend/

The continuing furore over the Budget--ranging from charitable giving to pasties--reflects the enormous complexity of the world's most obtuse tax system.

Germinal

http://thirdcoastdigest.com/2012/04/frankly-music-walton-and-elgar-at-wisconsin-lutheran/
Quote
But you could feel the organic probing of this germinal little figure, wiggling relentlessly on its evolutionary way from start to finish.

Quote
Where the first triptych, simply titled Electric Flower EP, is a little shakier and germinal under the microscope, the second threesome, conveniently called Electric Flower EP II, proves a more robust man-eating disease.

I fancy I shall have sufficient ingenuity to reverse the process, or better still, to hide the ravages of despair beneath a layer of fard.

Moreover, his ideas are very disturbing - for example he thinks that a headscarf is not fard and it's enough just to wear modest clothes and so on.

Barnburner (I was going to pass up yesterday's word-of-the-day, until I saw was it was--sorry for the delay)

http://prommanow.com/index.php/2012/04/26/go-fight-live-announces-five-events-to-air-this-weekend/
Quote
Steele has only had 1 of his 9 bouts go to a decision so his fight with Hall is shaping up to be a barnburner as neither man likes to go for the decision.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-501708_162-57410194/fact-check-is-obama-like-ike-on-spending/
Quote
Twice in his barnburner campaign speech this week, Obama likened his administration to Republican Dwight Eisenhower's in asserting that he's got domestic spending on a path to be the lowest, as a share of the economy, since Ike was president.

Ensconce

It's a shame that this is the tease because I want more, it's a story that I want to sit and enjoy, a time period that I want to ensconce myself in.

Its purpose was to ensconce visiting warmongers in elegant lodgings while they priced munitions.

Aphotic

http://www.uen.org/Lessonplan/preview.cgi?LPid=8258
Quote
The aphotic zone receives no light at all, and this region's inhabitants live in complete darkness…with the exception of the lights they emit from their own bodies.

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/29/books/review/29BISSELL.html
Quote
This urge does not necessarily result in novels with nameless characters, mutating typography or unpunctuated attempts to explore the aphotic realm of human consciousness.

After reading this thread, I now win most of my "Words with friends" games. Alsomy tallywhacker is three inches longer, and I'm more regular.

Thank you Bruno.
