Mala Fide dotcom

I shall forever resist the tyranny of the cheerful.

To achieve a high level of graphic quality here at Mala Fide dotcom, I often use on- or offline generators. They save me from doing any actual work. I’m all for not working.

Speaking of not working, 20 minutes of indolence updated the Evilos post. I’m very happy with the result.

Most of the generators were found through the Generator Blog, which I’ve added to the Blogroll. Besides labor saving devices there’s a lot of serious time killing to be found here. I’m all for killing time.

Did I mention that I’m lazy?

Coffee is the most important meal of the day

The Unfact™ of the Month

The Unfact™ is, to the best of our knowledge, completely false and unsupportable. We are not responsible for any consequences that are bound to occur if you are silly enough to believe it.

The seven noble gasses, helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, radon, and ununoctium, are so called because they were first cataloged Queen Victoria’s nephew, Vidkun Rottenederst, Prince of Ã…land.

Hvad er at lugt?

The Color of Money

The American Dialect Society has voted on the word of the year for 2007. The winner is "subprime".

subprime, an adjective used to describe a risky or less than ideal loan, mortgage, or investment.

The Management likes this word. Its euphemistic quotient is high giving it a lot of potential use. While “This sucks” has a savage charm, “This is decidedly subprime” enjoys a cachet that gives it a wider serviceability.

The word voted most useful and most likely to succeed is "green-".

green- prefix/compounding form. Designates environmental concern, as in greenwashing.

The Management is reasonably down with sustainability but prizes utility above all so we prefer “viridian“. We appreciate the fact that “green” dovetails nicely with the word of the year.

Army, Asparagus, Bright, British racing, Camouflage, Celadon, Chartreuse, Chartreuse yellow, Emerald, Fern, Forest, Gray-asparagus, Harlequin, Hunter, Jade, Jungle, Kelly, Key lime, Lime, Lime pulp, Moss, Myrtle, Office, Olive, Olive drab, Pear, Persian, Pigment, Pine, Sea, Shamrock, Spring, Spring bud, Tea.
