You just learnt that word and wanted to use it at the first opportunity, didn't you?

de·fen·es·trate [dee-fen-uh-streyt] Show IPA
verb (used with object), de·fen·es·trat·ed, de·fen·es·trat·ing.
to throw (a person or thing) out of a window.
That´s an awfully specific word. Who thought these words were necessary?

it started a few wars (at least one) so i guess it deserves its own name

Nope. Learned it a long time ago. Just recently started thinking about it.

I'm sorry, but I really don't see how your comment is relevant.

Even if it was related to the content, the fact that you chose to use a 'difficult' word, and not just write "We should throw him out of a window" makes me doubt that you've known the word for a long time..
#8 to #5 - ohayougozaimasu (08/12/2014) [-]
My comment wasn't relevant? It directly answered your question. I don't see how it could be more relevant. Did you mean logical or something along that line? Because any other word would have been better.

Furthermore, why would I want to say "throw him out a window" instead of "defenestrate" when the latter is much more concise? How does using more advanced vocabulary in place of a more verbose phrase indicate the length of a person's knowledge of a particular word?

If we were discussing the topic of prison and I happened to use "recidivist" to describe a criminal who repeated his behavior instead of actually saying "criminal who chronically repeats criminal behavior", does that mean I recently learned the word "recidivist"? If anything, that's an indication that I'm either trying to sound smart or actually speaking eloquently and effectively. Your correlation between length of a person's knowledge of difficult vocabulary and using a difficult word is baseless.

Regardless, your accusations are false. I learned the word "defenestrate" and some of its variations more than two years ago, specifically on a TV Tropes page that discussed the very topic of verbosity and the shortening of sentences to make way for more complicated but concise language.

In short, you don't know me and you can't use any sort of logic wizardry to deduce my recent actions and thoughts from a mere word in a silly comment.

How can you still think I meant your second comment when I wrote "Even if it was related to the content, the fact that you chose to use a 'difficult' word..."?

And it's not the fact that you used a more concise word, but the fact that you went out of your way to throw it into a sentence, that indicates the length of your knowledge of said word.

Also, we're on an international website designed to have fun and not everybody's native language is english. I know you might have shortened the sentence and you think that it makes you sound intellectual and cool, but there's is literally no reason to complicate a sentence like that, and it makes you come out as a stupid neckbeard.

Your argument is pretty ****** shallow man. I just learned the meaning of the word right now, maybe I'll remember about it in a year and decide to use it for no reason other than I feel like it. Either way you don't have to go out of your way to be a dick because, like you're saying he is with being 'excited to use this new word' you're being overexcited to show off to this "international website" that you can apparently call out people on the reasons they have for doing something. Just shut the **** up and let him say his big words.

First of all, I never said my original comment was relevant. In fact, I fully recognize I used the word "defenestrate" on a whim. I didn't even use it to be concise. I just said it's more concise than saying "throwing out a window" because I was trying to give another reason as to why some people would use difficult words other than to sound smart or to use newly learned words. What I'm really arguing is that there's no way you would know how long I knew the word before I used it. Don't distort my arguments.

Again, where are you pulling these assumptions out of? That I "went out of my way" to throw it in a sentence means I recently learned it? How? By what logical process are you drawing this inane connection? Actually, what do you even mean by "go out of my way" in the first place? That phrase implies I tried especially hard to do or perform something. So I tried especially hard to ... type a few letters to create a word? Look at any dictionary; the phrase "go out of one's way" is always used in the context of putting extra effort into something, something which I did not do unless you imagine me as a feeble geriatric hunching over a keyboard. (Bet you think I recently learned the word "geriatric" too, huh?)

"there's literally no reason to complicate a sentence like that"
Yes there is, and it's called "conciseness", which was exactly what I was talking about. Although, when I was typing up that comment, I wasn't trying to be concise; I just thought it would be fun to throw in an obscure word that describes such a random act.

Oh and thanks for that oh so mature and original namecalling.
"Oh hey guys, someone said one of those big boy words so that must mean he's some fat slob living in his mom's basement, watching MLP and anime all day long! Hur hur, it's fun to not think and instead generalize people in the stupidest possible ways! Next, I'll call a female complaining about gender issues a landwhale. LOL, that will show her!"

Oh my god, I miss old FunnyJunk so ******* much.

Why? Did people then incorrectly accuse people of similar things too?
User avatar #102 to #92 - analleakage (08/13/2014) [-]
No, but people sure as **** wasn't as cringey as this. I guess they probably were, and I've gotten older, I don't know.

Anyways you haven't understood one single thing I've said to you yet, and you still say that I am distorting your arguments.

I'm going to give it one last try and this should be really easy for you to understand:
I'm not bashing advanced words. I'm bashing the context that you used it in.

Secondly, I've never called you any names. I say you are presenting yourself as a stupid (I'd like to change that to arrogant) neckbeard. But seriously though, do you sit in your mom's basement and watch MLP and anime all day long? I don't judge, I'm just curious.

Hopefully, you'll mature sooner or later and you'll look back at how cringe worthy you are acting. Unfortunately, you probably think everyone's elses behavior are inferior to yours, and you'll never see your own mistakes.
#104 to #102 - ohayougozaimasu (08/13/2014) [-]
Um...a...what?

Oh boy, here we go again. Let me just put this in list format from now on:

1. "you haven't understood a single thing"
Well I guess that's really up to the spectators right about now, because I could just as easily reciprocate that claim.

2. "I'm not bashing advanced words. I'm bashing the context that you used it in."
Actually, you are making an invalid logical deduction that just because I used a difficult word in an irregular context I must have recently learned it. I guess you're also bashing the context I'm using the word in, but since I never claimed that my usage was relevant, (Hell, I even said that I used the word on a whim) you're arguing against something that never even existed.

3. "I've never called you any names. I say you presented yourself as a...."
Saying someone is a stupid neckbeard and saying someone is presenting themself as a stupid neckbeard are damn near the same thing. It's still namecalling. I could say to you "your arguments make you look like a complete retard cocksucking faggot" and it would still be namecalling, even though I didn't directly describe you as such.

4. "I'm just curious"
Well I watch anime sometimes. I mostly play games. I use the computer in my bedroom. Thanks for asking, though.

5. "Hopefully you'll mature sooner or later"
Oh thanks, moooooooom. Gee, I never knew trying to create an intelligent, point-by-point refutation against a bunch of absurd arguments that (inaccurately and illogically) attempt to prove something that cannot be easily proven was a childish thing to do! Obviously I was just smacking my keyboard with my fists screaming "Euphoria! Check your privilege! Rainbow Dash!" or something equally as cringey instead.

Don't worry, I'll finish Middle School soon while you're completing your doctorate, you oh so apparently maturer fellow internet user!

I just saw someone get logic'd on FunnyJunk.

I guess there's a start to everything, right?
