Check this out: dumbdeviantart.tumblr.com/ These dA comments are honestly hilarious.

Anyway, I'm actually going to be helping my science teacher with class by making a palaeontology power point. :D He wanted me to include information on time periods and their life, extinction events and the evolution of birds and mammals. I'm quite excited about this actually.

EDIT: Oooh looky here! www.jplegacy.org/board/showthr… Ugh, and they still are going on about jargon? As I have said before, let people of all experience levels speak as they wish, and if there are problems, then they can jusk ask for the meaning. Ugh, why do I still bother!

"If you can Google a term and produce a more commonly known synonym, then it is considered jargon."

My version: "If you are reading a term and can google it and find a more commonly known synonym, please do so."

If you don't know of course. But yeah, still drives me nuts.

Also, logic fail. HOW much more common does the term need to be? If saying serpent is less common than saying snake, does this mean that serpent is jargon? :P

Yes, yes it does. Tyrannosaurus is also jargon because T.rex is more popular :P

We're doing geology and plate tectonics. Since palaeontology is connected to this subject, he figured it would be a good idea.
