    "Slacktivism" is such a great word; it's amazing "vape" edged it out to receive the honour.

    Its a freaking Irish publication. If thats not a punchline in itself, read the article. Its sheer mockery which the irish are supposed to bear the brunt of. More fitting for the funnies thread, honestly guys.

    As a moron noob, I may be inviting another lesson in the "oldschool" ways by "Sep 2012", but what is your point? Would you prefer an article with the pretense of gravitas? Here you go: Vape: Oxford's 2014 Word of the Year

    Look! It even has a graph.

    The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is ^^^ yes it is....
    The Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is… vape

    As 2014 draws to a close, it’s time to look back and see which words have been significant throughout the past twelve months, and to announce the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year. Without further ado, we can exclusively reveal that the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2014 is….
    vape

    Although there is a shortlist of strong contenders, as you’ll see below, it was vape that emerged victorious as Word of the Year.

    It may not be huge news but for every person who reads this, the association with the word can only be positive. Because it made word of the year it will hopefully lessen the ridiculous notion that vaping is bad by members of the general public. This can definitely help raise awareness.
    I don't blow clouds. I might if they bought me dinner and made me feel appreciated every now and then...
