I need the word for “this”

Post by robinson »

At times I think about something, but either I am too old to remember the word, or I just don’t know it


Like that thought, the one right before this one


What’s the word for that?


Also, what’s the word to describe my reaction to the following tweet?



Google is worthless for these kinds of queries

I find my most common reaction is either to make a comic about it, or to just say “fuck it”

Yeah bud we get it. My pecker don't work that well either.
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

The word for that (the quoted phrase above) is "mind reading", where somebody tells you what you were thinking, like they can read your mind

Another word for it is "bullshit"

I find 1984 to have so every specific and useful words to describe what is happening in the western world

(Assuming what we see online is actual)

I need to reread 1984. It seems more relevant recently.



Incidentally, It really seems more relevant now, or am I just getting older?
