Fun on Friday #24: Anomic loners

Picture the scene. You're giving a lecture and the words are flowing. It sounds something like this:

I think it's fair to say that we live age where we are surrounded by anomic loners musing over their fate. Alienation and ... what!? Why are you interrupting? I was in full flight...

You don't understand? ... You don't know what "anomic" means? ...


Let me Google that for you.

With thanks to Stephen Fry (yes, the Stephen Fry) for drawing today's Fun on Friday site to my attention.

Hi David,
nice one and a delightful photo.

Even better?

Disappointed that hover-control-command-d found no entry for anomic in the mac's dictionary.

I assume I was saying "Talk to the hand..." :-)
