“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” – Inigo Montoya, The Princess Bride

Greetings once more, web-wanderers and seekers of digitized stimulants.

If you are looking for something to pique your interest, add to your library of knowledge, or polish your skill at wielding the English language by better navigating its wonderland-ish labyrinth of quips and quotes, jargon and gibberish … you have come to a very worth-while page!

You’re welcome.
