phosphenes. New favorite word...
Random Fact, Definition, Color, Quote, Thought, Cool Word
what a beautiful word! When I listened to Annie it made me all dreamy over you. Very classy by the way, choosing the ballad that was not the biggest hit from the band. I could totally see listening to those songs and rubbing my eyes to see phosphenes in the hopes you might be there when foggy thoughts clear.
I thought I was crazy for the longest time.... I would see things with my eyes closed. Turns out, I am crazy but that's not why!
phosphenes n. the stars and colors you see when you rub your eyes #quote #quotes

myotahapea (n) the feeling of shame you experience on the behalf of another person or a character when they do something stupid or embarrassing #definition
Omg, THIS is why I cannot watch most rom coms. Because they are chock full of embarrassing moments, of characters doing stupid, stupid things and I always feel more upset for them than do for themselves (because they're fictional. But I'm still bothered for them).
Only always. If I'm watching a show or movie (that I own) I either mite it until the embarrassment is over, or I pause it to gather myself before moving on. If I'm reading, I close the book on my finger, take a deep breathe, gather my feels, and open it back up and skip that dialogue.
You know like what we felt when we watched celine dion doing air guitar and singing an Areosmith song. Ewww... some things just cannot be unseen.
Myotahapea - the feeling of shame you experience on the behalf of another person (I get this ALL the time when watching TV/Movies)
so this is that completely horrible feeling i get whenever i'm watching movies where people are doing something really embarrassing
This is what I do!! It's hard for me to watch certain scenes in movies and shows because because of this.
Word porn. Bridget Jones and Never Been Kissed evoke this feeling in me.

I now know life's greatest mystery. :D<---Now I know why my L.A. teacher did that. See, you usually write 'ex.' for an example, right? Well she wrote 'e.g.' instead and my entire class didn't know what the heck it meant. And you know what she said? "Oh, it's just another way to abbreviate the word example."
WHY DID NO ONE EVER TEACH THIS. The answers to two of life's greatest mysteries that no one ever asks about.

I found this word three years ago, and it is one of my favorite solutions to what I previously thought was a lexical gap
mamihlapinatapai - pronunciation | \ma-mE-la-pin-ya-ta-pI\ ... Can't say it, but it is definitely annoying and awesome when it happens...
This word should be exhibited in a museum. :-) • pronunciation | ma-mE-la-pin-ya-ta-pI • A slightly different interpretation of the meaning also exists: "It is that look across the table when two people are sharing an unspoken but private moment. When each knows the other understands and is in agreement with what is being expressed. An expressive and meaningful silence." • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ImIqL1swgc •
