My fault for not mentioning the next entry, "wlonkful", which is
a synonym for "wlonk".  That has the same rhythm as "spiffy"; I'm
afraid I'm not competent to judge just-so-ness.

If we teach everybody, including, say, high school students, habits of
skeptical thought, they will probably not restrict their skepticism to
UFOs, aspirin commercials, and 35,000-year-old channelees.  Maybe they'll
start asking awkward questions about economic, or social, or political,
or religious institutions.  Perhaps they'll challenge the opinions of
those in power.  Then where would we be?	-- Carl Sagan
