Listen boys (since you mentioned your pre-school teachers and relived that experience)..I know Vandalogy, Corpocracy, Cowboydom, Sociography, Zorology, Bushomania, Bushism, Benladenism, Your father Hurayra etc..are all terms that you can not find in the dictionary. I will not blame you for being unable to understand them as they are reserved for Hight Intelegentcia. You remind me when I first red Islamdom and Islamicate in a book at my BA degree level by Marschal Hodgson and did not find them in the dictionary, I had the same problem you are having now. So keep learning my friends..The person some times reaches a level of bypassing the dictionary and comming up with a creative terminology. You will get there one day..

I have a proverb for you guys: You know when a short person wants an apple but can not reach it as the tree is way higher. There are two kind of personalities in this case. One is the Wise short man who will say to his friends, WOW it is so high, lets get one on the other to pick it up..so that was the wise short man. Now the stupid, bushist, ignorant short man is the one says: Never mind I can not reach it, it not sweet..

I guess you know now where you stand..
later,
Submitting....
