What, no Unobtainium? How are we going to create (insert favorite gadget here)?

I can honestly say that I never ran across any of these words in either Imagination or Imaginative Tales. So who gives a rat's ass about them? Certainly not Mr. Alexander Blade or Mr. Adam Chase. Or Mr. Robert Moore Williams for that matter.

Pfui! What about the really important words or phrases like skiffy, zine, sensawonda, BNF, bacover, the usual (not the one you say to your bartender), femme fan, sep stapled, and on and on?

Um, I knew ten. I think mental floss might take away my geek status now. Shoot.
