actually, this research came about looking up a word I liked, but really had no guess as to what it meant: Evanescence > I'm NOT going to give the def: so you can let it haunt you until you google look it up yourself!!! >

anyways, that first google-search turned up so many cross references and thesaurus alternatives, that I started to play. I looked up Ethereal, thinking it may have a bit to also do with evanescence (but it doesn't, not exactly), and got so many possible definitions!!! including.. get this: those red cloak mind control aliens in the old PC game X-Com!!!! WOAH! I remember those!!

Tau had about 20 possible or close matches as well, T'au is an island off of somewhere, Tau is a city in Norway, etc...

wow google is thorough!

Absolutely hilarious. Perfrect joke, even down to the "comes in threes" bit. Make sure to write that one down.

So is improper spelling (terably?! ) and chatroom vocabulary in a clear text forum. With all due respect, please learn to use a dictionary if you can't spell the word. Not everyone here spends time in a chatroom. Thanks dude
