Apoc-Zen Project: Lithotripter

Apocryphal Zenzizenzizenzic is an old Latin phrase referring to someone who has the uncanny ability to define obscure words with pinpoint accuracy.

(read about the project and accompanying contest)

Day 12: Lithotripter: A person who stares mezmerizingly at colorful prints when in a state of chemical-induced Euphoria.

As of today, if you live in the state of AZ, your doctor can prescribe medicinal Marijuana. Godspeed glaucoma and cancer patients (or anyone else with a minor ailment that can be helped by this MEDICINE... all those sufferers of sprained pancreases can now get some relief). May the force (?) be with you.

We'll you've got my definition. What's yours? (leave it in the comments for your chance to win)


  1. I'm stopping by from the A to Z challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.

  2. It has been legal here in Montana for several years and we have been reaping the consequences ever since. They almost got it repealed recently but then our governor vetoed the repeal. So now hangnail sufferers will still have their drug of choice. Maybe I should lay the blame on the doctors who prescribe it to anyone complaining of minor aches and pains.

  3. As a graphic design nerd (and one with knowledge of copying and pasting from the online dictionary), I know lithography means "the process of printing from a flat surface treated so as to repel the ink except where it is required for printing." Therefore, if I worked on a printing press instead of in front of a computer, I would be a lithotripter, because I am clumsy and would fall onto the flat surface so that the ink required for printing is all over me.

    Yeah, I know it sucks. I'm losing steam here!

  4. My eyes are crying "spare us".

    LOL. Those are bright images!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog!

  5. Sylvia - thanks for stopping by

    Sherri - it will never be legal in Oklahoma, but I am sure all those who want it can find it some way or another. That's probably the case anywhere else in the US.

    Allison - you always crack me up :-)

    Eagle - I know, right? I'd swear the first one is a moving gif, but it's not.

  6. Lithotripter... a device used for biological procedures to crush calcium deposits. (Since I had a couple of surgical departments)

  7. Boo... I meant urological .... stupid phone auto spell.

  8. I just love your blog, you come up with the coolest stuff! I love that first one, haven't seen one like that since my bedroom in the 70s. We won't discuss what I may or may not have been doing back then ;-)

  9. I swear that 1st picture moved!
    visiting from the A to Z

  10. Lithotripter is a "exhausted , life-drained , fatigue-ridden jet-setter who constantly flits around the globe from one continent to the next" ha ! ha !


  11. Hahahahahahaha loved this post. Especially when I saw the point. ^_^
