Word of the day

Embuggerance – a niggling and irritating barrier or obstacle encountered when attempting to resolve a problem; very minor problem; any obstacle (natural or artificial) that gets in the way of progress; a natural or artificial hazard that complicates any proposed course of action.

In tribute to  Sir Terry Pratchett 24.4.48 – 12.3.15 who used it to describe Alzheimer’s disease from which he suffered.

    Onwards please scientists. Someone dear to me needs you to do your work…fast.
