xtinesinferno "I grok in fullness." The Dictionary.com word of the day today is "grok" [verb], which is defined as "1. to understand thoroughly and intuitively and 2. to communicate sympathetically." This word was coined by Robert A. Heinlein in his 1961 science-fiction novel Stranger in a Strange Land as a Martian word that could not be defined in Earthling terms, but can be associated with meanings such as "to drink" and "to live" and had a much more profound figurative meaning that is hard for terrestrial culture to understand because of its assumption of a singular reality.

Here are a few other words we've hijacked from science fiction: robotics (Asimov), zero-gravity (Clarke), computer virus (Dave Gerrold), cyberspace (William Gibson), and dystopia (John Stuart Mill). Thus, I grok in fullness the awesome power of science fiction to influence our culture. Read on and prosper. [Sources: dictionary.com, Wikepedia, io9.com]
