On Word Disrupted

It's only disruptive if everything else is changed by your actions. A new television show is popular, but 99% of the rest of TV stays the same? Not disruptive.

Now "Survivor" was disruptive. It pretty much ruined TV forever.

On Who Will Disrupt the Public Good?

While I'm totally against the private sector taking over something like this, I am for the drastic raising of parking meter rates in congested urban areas (esp. during the day). This'll turn the externalities of every idiot driving to work into direct costs.

And of course all extra revenue should be earmarked for public transport, like flying pigs.

On Word Somewhat Powerful

If you hover over "Sunday" on their interactive calender, that weekend that Sunday is in becomes "this weekend", while the Saturday five days from then is "oxt weekend." So now this new, wholly unnecessary word can refer to the coming weekend instead of the weekend after the coming weekend. Oy.

Also, "Oxt Weekend" sounds like some kind of Midlands pagan harvest ritual. "What do you mean you didn't buy the Oxt Weekend biscuits? Now I have to run down to the corner shop and pick them up myself. If they have any left, that is, you barmy bastard!"
