I read Pharyngula. I read it for several reasons. One of less noble reasons is the occasional (or not so occasional) opportunity to participate in an internet dose of shadenfreude. Like, for example, when a Republican website goes freaking crazy because of pesky people showing up to vote on their poll.
Come to think of it, shadenfreude is probably not the right term for this. It’s more like the feeling you get (we need another good german-derived word for this) when you just can’t turn away from a scene of disaster. You don’t want to look, but you can’t help yourself.
I will merely tease you with this description without giving you the full details. Click through to the link above and learn a new term: Pharyngulization
