Weird names

Post by Guest on 29/4/2011, 23:14

Completely pointless, but a little something I found on the net that mildly interested me so I thought I'd share. I must admit, some of them made me go " Ahhhh, so THAT'S what it's called " !

Things most people don't even know have names

1 - PETRICHOR - THE OUTDOOR SMELL AFTER RAIN



2 - ARMSCYE - THE ARM HOLE IN CLOTHING



3 - MORTON'S TOE - WHEN YOUR SECOND TOE IS BIGGER THAN YOUR BIG TOE



4 - DESIRE PATH - A PATHWAY CREATED BY NATURAL MEANS BECAUSE IT IS THE QUICKEST AND EASIEST ROUTE



5 - GYNECOMASTIA - MAN BOOBS



6 - LUNULE - THE WHITE CRESCENT SHAPED PART AT THE END OF A NAIL



7 - SEMANTIC SATIATION - WHEN YOU USE A WORD SO OFTEN THAT IT LOOSES IT'S MEANING



8 - PURLICUE - THE SPACE BETWEEN YOUR THUMB AND FORE FINGERS



9 - WAMBLE - A STOMACH RUMBLE



10 - DYSANIA - THE STATE OF FINDING IT HARD TO GET OUT OF BED



11 - PARESTHESIA - PINS AND NEEDLES



12 - RECTAL TENESMUS - THE FEELING OF INCOMPLETE DEFACATION



13 - PHOSPHENES - THE BRIGHT LIGHTS WE SEE WHEN WE CLOSE OUR EYES AND PRESS OUR HANDS AGAINST THEM



14 - TITTLE - THE DOT ABOVE AN i OR A j



15 - MONDEGREEN - MISHEARD LYRICS



16 - PHILTRUM - THE GROOVE BETWEEN YOUR NOSE AND UPPER LIP
