How about 'mote' in the same thread that one came from? That was a new one for me.

I reckon there's a word in the guardian I have to look up at least once a week, although sometimes it's more to remind myself because it's so rare, rather than I don't recognise it.

This seems as good a place as any to post a link to Spike Milligan's interview as a Word Pronouncer - from one of the Goon Shows. Not everybody's cup of tea, Spike Milligan's concept of humour, but it was good while it lasted. "Perspicacity, mate", I said.

That is a revealing admission.
In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads: Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Guilty as charged - that's the benefits of an Anglican education. Although I referenced "plank" instead of "beam" to compare to the mote... seems to be a confused mixture of King James and the RSV... and now I can't believe I've wasted spent 5 minutes looking that up!

There was an incident on BE years ago where somebody called somebody else a seminiferous tubule. It may have even won insult of the year.

Is the person still on BE that was called a seminiferous tubule? I don't remember this incident.
