I have yet to hear any argument for modifying the Constitution, that isn't based out of short term partisan thinking.  Which means if enacted, will bite us in the ass.

So, suddenly, you don't want to discuss "agnotology"...

Didn't know it needed more.  You responded very competently (you looked it up).

Well, "agnotology" wasn't exactly a household word while I was growing up, and I didn't major in semantics or philosophy in college.  On the other hand I do know what "perdincifying" and "crepuscular" mean.

My guesses are
Perdincifying: 1. The act in which one or multiple rednecks beautify an object, area, animal or person. 2. To make something increasingly perdy.

Crepuscular: A formerly thin, French pancake that has hit the gym.

I made up the first word.  Great effort on the definition though.

On the 2nd, I see your connection to "crepe" (the egg thing) and "uscular" (like muscular).  Couldn't have done better myself.  But "crepuscular" means "active at dawn and dusk".

Well done...
