Dear Jessamyn I have just realised that "super" has emigrated to my vocabulary alongside "awesome," and I think this is because of you.[More:]
Anyone else gotten words, consciously or unconsciously, from Mefites/bunnies?
If it really emigrated then Jessamyn can't use it anymore.

You know who else was super? That's right: Pat Harrington, Jr.

I personally have incorporated "Blargh" as a daily speech habit, which I attribute to Jessamyn.

Schneider was truly the superest super of them all. (No offense to Bookman.)

metric ass tonne. . .I think it was in one of ico's posts that I first saw it. I used it in a meeting at work and had to define it. I said, you know, a lot, but a lot that, if I had to, I could quantify but I don't feel like quantifying it but believe me I could if I wanted to and then you would be sorry.

Jessamyn spreading new words? Bonus!

danf, I think I was the one who originally posted a query to AskMeCha about the definition of "metric assload". Currently too lazy/busy to go dig up the thread but it spawned a pretty lengthy discussion of these arbitrary definitions of quantity.

I seem to recall that "metric fuckload" was the superlative that trumped all however.

I have used the words "asshat" and "douchenozzle" in conversation thanks to MetaFilter. Sometimes in the same conversation.

"Super metric fucknozzle" is also grand.

lonefrontranger: here it is.

My favorite Jessamyn line.

Your search is a little off - you need to remove the space between the colon and metafilter and then add a .com to the end of it. That's why you've not non-mefi sites in the results. This is what you want Super!

Hey neat! I don't think I knew I used it that much, but it does sometimes get me some weird glances. I think it's one of those words I thought everyone used. I like this search for more "few comments removed" goodness.

Not a word, but I learned the name of Bob Fosse through Metafilter when the clip of Snake in the Grass highlighting the similarity to MJ's moonwalk was posted, despite having been an ardent admirer of his work for a long, long time. Thanks, MeFi!

Oddly enough, I did a flickr search on 'jessamyn' then 'mathowie' then 'plinth', tags only. Discovered that while mathowie had the lowest hit count, it had the highest mathowie per picture ratio. 'jessamyn' had the highest hit count and a fairly decent jessamyn west/picture ratio. While 'plinth' had about 5 x the mathowie hits, it was less than the 'jessamyn' hit count by a wide margin and the plinth the person per picture ratio was paltry. It was mostly architectural features.

Fun fact: I may have mentioned this before but the person whose photos are at [mine are at iamthebestartist] is actually named Jessamyn NORTH. SO weird!

Well, if the wizard of Oz has taught me anything it's that this makes you wicked.
