I should smack myself for watching TV again. I can feel a brain cell dying every second I watch. Then again, I got to see what all the fuss was about from television personalities that were mentioned by more media savvy bloggers. Frankly, I don’t see why people are so fascinated with them except for the fact that they’re all so damn annoying.

1. Define ‘ectophensis’.

The first thing I thought about was ectoplasm and those really old photographs with ghostly appendages protruding out of the orifices of supposed mediums. Then again, it might have to do with some literary or grammatical construction instead of something paranormal. After all, it certainly sounds like it.

As Chad mentioned, “ecto” means outside. It’s a Greek root, and applying that reasoning to the other part of the word, “phen”, it would mean show (which originally pertained to illuminating gas, a.k.a. benzene–thus the modern chemical term phenol). Perhaps it does mean “outside display”, who knows?

2. But what does it mean?

Maybe swamp gas.

3. Have you ever thought about getting an amateur radio license?

No. But I had been a rather bad deejay at a not quite legal campus radio station before and have realized that running a radio station or maintaining anything of the sort takes up more time than I am willing to devote.
