    This is kind of a +1 topic so let's have a definition and, if it's not immediately obvious, an explanation as to why the word sounds cool but isn't.

    ZIIIIIIINNNNGGGG and everything but tough shit: it's not hard for the poster to type a brief definition of the word if they know the definition and if they don't then how do they know it doesn't have a cool meaning?

    Some of these words have non-mundane meanings. I don't think some people read the topic past the first two words. =/

    Guys, some of these words have awesome meanings.

    Get with it. I mean, I hate the fun police as much as the next guy, but Sergeant Sam has a point, m'kay?

    Electrophilic aromatic substitution: A process by which aromatic rings such as benzene have hydrogen atoms substituted by electrophile groups such as halogens.

    It's a bit nerdy, but it sounds cool.

    And it's how to make 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, known to most of you as TNT!
