Snarky? Guilty as charged, I suppose. I didn't know people still used words like that. Then again, what are geeks for if not to maintain the usage of esotaric words.

To get back on topic: I concede that I have yet to find a red wedge anywhere, so the white wedge wins out by default.

Does anyone know how to make ANY of these kinds of keychains. That might make a difference to what is eventually made, if any.

Esoteric. Minus one for spelling.

Oh, like I'm seriously the first person to ever rush through typing a post and thereby misspell something. :roll:

I wish I was secretly a member of the Continuum. First thing I'd do is summon a fanfare everytime I enter a room.

There have been a couple of red-wedge images. They were here at the forums, back when the 5MV skin was really thorough. I'll see if I can dig them up.

The word is used a lot online right now -- I'm surprised you haven't run into it. Television Without Pity is probably the main reason, as they use the term extensively, even in their slogan. (Knowing TWoP, they probably also think they invented it.) Websnark.com uses it too, but a bit differently.

So it's not old-fashioned anymore... which is not to say I don't like being sesquipedalian (and other such folderol).

When used to describe someone else's posts, as I did here, "snarky" just means sarcastic or sharp. When embraced in describing one's own commentary, as TWoPpers do, it loosely translates to "I am an enormous prick."

Thanks for confirming my sanity. I KNEW I'd seen red wedges out there. It'd be nice to see them side-by-side for an objective comparison.

My definition of snarky is a bit different. For me, "being snarky" is basically the same as "acting superior with no regard for the feelings or opinions of others" or "being obsessive and condescending." Now you can call me a pedantic drone. :wink:

Enameled metal would be nice, but hard rubber would be good too. I'm still holding out for leather bookmarks though.

Well, that was underwhelming.

I expected some shambling, at least.
