    well my g1 lovin bro came to visit today and we got into a discussion over the animated figures (he hates the look of them but actually thinks grimlock and lockdown look cool) and he was commenting about how figures were more posable now days

    his words were "man these things have way more..."

    and then i said "articulation"

    it blew his mind that i knew that word and he said, "boy where did you learn that word, i know i didn't learn words like that when i was in school"

    i then had a "timmy turner" moment and said "uh...internet"

    :lol  just though i would share that

    I feel exactly as your bro does about animated. Grimmy, Lockdown and Leader megsa are the only ones I like. Unlike him, however, I know the word "articulation". :)

    oh grief, of course it did. *L* I'm 31, and my HS was a central school for a county that the largest population center was merely 3000 people, and I learned a vocabulary much better than merely "articulation" :lol

    Funny anecdote & thanks for sharing it with us :lol 

    But maybe you can't blame him for being dumb-founded. since wayback then G1 TFs were bricks, so those kinda words aren't in much usage in those days. just my :2c:

    They wouldn't have been in much use in the TF fandom (not that there really was such a thing except in playgrounds), but it was still a word, and not exactly a complicated one...

    With an education like that, you could grow up to be an engineer because you're so bright.

    Assuming he went to school! (This was the least offensive of my original replies)

    I mean, 'articulation', it's not as if it's rarely used like 'flaucinaucinihilipilification'.
