ignoranti - The exact opposite of "illuminati." The ignoranti are an unorganized cadre of uneducated, uninformed or ill-informed, magical-thinking, irrationalists who have a belief system that depicts the real physical world or cosmos however they wish or have been taught by their peers, family, or culture -- that is to say, most of the general religious public.

e.g., On the subject of evolution, the ignoranti have extreme difficulty accepting the fact that humans and the other primates such as chimpanzees, gorillas, baboons, and orangutans had the same distant ancestor despite the overwhelming fossil and DNA evidence.

ignoranus - Someone who is both ignorant and an asshole. | A person who's both stupid and an asshole. (Washington Post Style Invitational.) | Eric Holder.

e.g., The new boss is an ignoranus. | Damn, I do get tired of ignoranuses incapable of presenting their position fairly responding to their distorted versions of what I said rather than responding to what I said. As Tom P said all those many years ago, "No, not in other words. If I had wanted to use other words, I would have used them." | If Ray cribbed this word from a newspaper without giving credit, does that make him an ignoranus? I think it does.

ignorement - Ignoring something or somebody. Corresponding to the verb "ignore," but different from ignorance -- which is derived from ignore, but has a different meaning, "lack of knowledge."

igry - Painfully embarrassed for or uncomfortable about someone else's incredibly poor social behavior or unfortunate circumstances. Descriptive of such behavior or circumstances. Over the past ten years, users have unconsciously determined the noun form to be either "igritude," "igriness," or just "igry." Update, from another creator igry adj. igriness, igrier, igriest [We in the puzzle world -- especially those of us who have ever spent more than 5 minutes reading the rec.puzzles newsgroup -- loathe the "gry" puzzle. So a bunch of us (John Chaneski, Peter Gordon, Kevin West, and myself, if I recall correctly) decided that we should make up a word, so that if anyone ever asked us the goddamn -gry riddle, we could just shrug and say, "Oh, don't you know? It's the word we made up. I thought everybody knew that."] "Igry" basically means "painfully embarrassed for or uncomfortable about someone else's behavior, or descriptive of such behavior." Like, say you're at a restaurant, and one of the people at your table summons the waiter by snapping their fingers. Watching this makes you die a little inside. You feel igry. (Or you might think, "What an igry thing to do.") Another usage example: "That was the igriest episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm yet." Some have argued that it feels wrong for the same adjective to apply to both the person feeling igry and the person doing something igry. To those people I point out the words "nauseous" (which means both "causing nausea" and "affected by nausea") and "suspicious." ED. Plenty of folks will object to the claims about "nauseous," but that might amount to no more than a quibble here.

e.g., "At that point I couldn't stop the goofy little guy from trying to impress the busty waitress, so I just sat there feeling igry." From LanguageHat, January 28, 2004: I generally have no interest in the cute coinages people keep coming up with, usually by blending two other words to achieve some strained and unnecessary meaning: beducation or whatever. Every once in a while, though, somebody invents a word that meets a hitherto unrealized need; such a word was Walpole's "serendipity" (first written down in a letter of January 28, 1754, exactly 250 years ago today!), and such a word (or prospective word) is "igry," invented by John Chaneski, Peter Gordon, Kevin West, and Francis Heaney some time back with the meaning "painfully embarrassed for or uncomfortable about someone else's incredibly poor social behavior, or descriptive of such poor social behavior."

igsanity - Igsanity is being in the state of careless or ignorant insanity. It was created out of necessity for a word to describe both insanity and ignorance.

ijulaikra - (pronounced ee-july-kruh; n.) 1. Uncovering the future (which is quite a bit harder than digging up the past) through hypothesis and projection. 2. Adopting, insofar as possible, the perspective of someone from the past as to later advances (or losses). 3. Imagining the excavation of our present “civilization” by future archaeologists. (Ijulaikra is archaeology pronounced backwards.)

e.g., I had the kids do an exercise in ijulaikra today in class: They had to come up with a hypothesis that future archaeologists might come up with given some modern artifacts, like soda cans, plastic six-pack rings, and a bunch of little plastic soldiers. | You know, speaking ijulaikraically, people from ancient Greece could recognize some of our technology for what it is; they might not be as primitive as you seem to think, believing all this to be some kind of magic.

iknoresteyu - (n.; ik-no-res-TAY-oo) a plot device---such as a fingerprint, a dna sample, a picture, a scent, or something---that somehow unrealistically, simplistically, or absurdly leads to a remarkable leap of logic, a quick solution, or an amazing realization. [From the play "The Libation Bearers" (Gk. Choephoroi) by Aeschylus, in which Electra, daughter of King Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, discovers that her brother Orestes has returned: This based upon her recognition of his footprint at her father's grave: in Greek, "ichnos Oresteou."]

e.g., "The 'evil twin' was a clone?" "Yeah, and before you say it's unrealistic, they went through the process precisely." "How did the clone get to be an adult?!" "Oh ... well, they sped up the aging process." "And that's credible science?---it's another iknoresteyu, man: it's ridiculous!" "Haven't you ever heard of suspension of disbelief?" "Sure: Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Biographia Literaria, 1817. I'm fine with suspending disbelief, but not hanging it by the neck until dead."
