Lately, when I'm bored at work (or more likely avoiding boring work), I'm here.

These are some of my most recent favorites:

acatamathesia: inability to understand data presented to the senses
adosculation: impregnation by contact alone or by wind
baisemain: kiss on the hand *sigh*
balanism: use of suppositories
barbarocracy: government by barbarians
bestiocracy: rule by beasts
blennoid: of or resembling mucus
calque: word or expression introduced into a language by literally translating it
carminative: expelling, causing or relieving flatulence
cebocephalic: having a head shaped like a monkey's
