You are trying to start your own language, aren't you?
Thanks for the thumbs up on Wilkie Collins. I don't mind Dickens's wordiness. Dan Simmons (the author of Drood) is the one who is too wordy.
Oh, and I was first. Everyone must be sleeping late.
Book Review #4 - Drood
Nessa is so right. Your definition gives new meaning to the word depilatory. I think I have a cute anecdote about depilatory but fortunately have forgotten it
I dont cair what kind of triky words you use I aint geting no harecut.
An effect sought after by women and denied by men.
DEPILATORY: something women use to rid themselves of stray eyebrows. That is to say, eyebrow hairs which have strayed to their upper lips and chins.
I hate shaving. I hate beards I can't win. it's the lesser of two depilatory evils!
"Marco? You OK?"

"You go see de doc?"
"Yeah. I tell him de sicka story, he tell me depilatory."
"But you no betta?"
"I'm worsa. I go de store, I aks, he tell. I no got de dinero for dis!"
Depilatory, one of the things why I am going to enjoy when I am born again as a man in my next life.
Doug makes up his own words now
Google finds JUST HIM.
No kidding, Doug, Google just came up with this post. Out trillions words there wasn't even one for which could be said, "Did you mean ... ?"
Have you tried hair growing since you were young?
I think we need Quilly here to break down the word into parts:
cio: similar to C3PO
gen: British slang for general information
Ic: short for ick
Short, hairy robots who are generally icky.
It could also possibly mean hairlessness, but I doubt it.
Apeciogenic - Schwarzenegger, pre-Governator. From pecio (Sp.), a shipwreck, aka Schwarzenegger, post-Governator.
I need a depilatory for the bathroom floors! They're not supposed to be carpeted yet too often they are!
(I bet you really wanted to know that.)
You could be on to something there, the amoeba. a~pecio~genic:
A genetic shipwreck
see, Sinead O'Connor.
Woman have depilatory affect on a man's head of hair I hear.
That made up word, well it's just not fair.
You bet, Nessa. I'm thinking of calling it Greek.
Haha, Pia. That probably is in the public interest.
Boy, you don't want to grow up to be a damn dirty hippie, do you?
Weirsdo, I gave up and just started using my beagle's head in place of my own.
Thom, I wouldn't mind shaving so much if I could do it without the mirror.
Must have been the strain, Amoeba.
Saves a lot of dye, Ariel.
Jim, I'm glad you're there to keep me honest. To your question, yes and I used to be better at it.
Karen, I think you've been a good pupil to Quilly.
Come on, Amoeba. Aka isn't a real word.
That was information rich, Quilly.
Karen, now I'm getting sensitive.
If you insist, Sauerkraut.
You hear correctly, Cooper, although men have the same effect on themselves.
