I need the word for “this”

Post by robinson »

At times I think about something, but either I am too old to remember the word, or I just don’t know it


Like that thought, the one right before this one


What’s the word for that?


Also, what’s the word to describe my reaction to the following tweet?



Google is worthless for these kinds of queries

I find my most common reaction is either to make a comic about it, or to just say “fuck it”

The word for that (the quoted phrase above) is "mind reading", where somebody tells you what you were thinking, like they can read your mind

Another word for it is "bullshit"

I find 1984 to have so every specific and useful words to describe what is happening in the western world

(Assuming what we see online is actual)

I need to reread 1984. It seems more relevant recently.



Incidentally, It really seems more relevant now, or am I just getting older?

Just read this, on a "skeptical" forum.

Also, what’s the word to describe my reaction to the following tweet?



That tweet revealed the low sentience of most woke people (and non-woke NPCs).

They have weak object permanence and related cognitives.
