All the English You Will Ever Need

albedo:  (noun)  the light reflected off a surface, usually that of a planet or moon, measured on a scale of zero to one, zero being completely non-reflective (such as black), and one being completely reflective (such as a mirror).  Sir, we're going to have to ask you to put on your hat.  The albedo off of your head is disturbing the other fans.

Word of the Every So Often

cybergnomes:  (plural noun)  mythical creatures that inhabit cyberspace, purposefully losing email, garbling documents, or mucking things up on the Internet and computers in general; a good excuse.  I’m sorry, Mrs. Bimbaum, but I couldn’t get the Hasting Contract finished by yesterday’s deadline because cybergnomes shut down the Internet.
