Sleeping Dogs [Steam] Giveaway  

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Okay so I won the grandfinale in another FREEBIE (thanks BillOhio & Sonofjor-el!!!)but already bought Sleeping Dogs on Steam when it was 90% off.
I also have 20% off Medal of Honour Warfighter Deluxe Edition which I will offer as a potential runner's up prize but there's a chance I have accidentally locked it to my account (even though I haven't bought yet) so don't get too excited. rolleyes.gif

The Rules
All you have to do is make some sentences (that make sense) using the following words (variations such as overclock, overclocking, overclocks are allowed). If noone uses them all then the person with the highest number wins. If more than one of you use all of them I'll pick a winner by random.
  • besmirch
  • perspicacious
  • overclock
  • floccinaucinihilipilification
  • logorrhoea
  • sesquipedalian
  • lamia
  • callipygian
  • banausic

If you would like to highlight the words in bold it will be appreciated but not affect your winning chances.

CLOSES ON VALENTINES DAY

If you've forgotten to get a present for your special lady then I'm not sure this will go down too well but if you are a special lady this would be lovely. Or you can always just escape the real world for a little while smile.gif

GLHF!

P.S. There's a handy website with most of these on or you can try to have a guess first.

EDIT: Must have joined before Christmas 2012 with some lovely posts to your name.

Peter was very perspicacious accompanied by banausic, callipygian lamia who suffered from logorrheoa and always besmirched everything Peter said so he decided to overclock his weak computer to invent world she couldn't besmirch as he was sesquipedalian and ended up with "floccinaucinihilipilification" which successfuly shut her mouth forever and they broke up but she came back at the night and sucked all blood from Peter which resulted in his death.

a little boy is running toward his father's room terrified!

Father! It was terrible! the boy said as he trembles in fear.
I saw a besmirch and banausic lamia that's callipygian as well!

the Father smiled knowing that the boy is sesquipedalian due to him having logorrhoea
it was just a dream he said to the boy...nothing to worry about.

I knew you'd regard this as floccinaucinihilipilification when I say it to you, I wish you are more perspicacious on things that I say because she's now behind you!
the child ran away knowing the monster is there to eat him.
He never saw his father again, surely his father died but the child was nowhere to be found in the town called overclock the next day.

Il try to come up with something tonight

wasnt easy lol


When Discussing Overclocking in general, Be sure to keep your logorrhea in check and avoid using sesquipedalian terminology where a much simpler word can explain the exact same situation! Don’t go around saying things like “The floccinaucinihilipilification of this equipment is overwhelming!” while most people will Oo and Aww at your choice of words, the truly perspicacious find your words benausic at best, and they may potentially besmirch your name when you are not looking. In the end it just sounds like your just making words up, so while your at it, feel free to tell people that your Girlfriend is the callipygian Lamia and call it a day.

The perspicacious overclocker besmirched Overclock.net by posting false information on other websites.
The callipygian girl was talked among many men. However, one guy showed his floccinaucinihilipilification about her butt.
His logorrhoea kicked in and he talked about her for weeks.
The sesquipedalian word scared many spelling bee contestants. Many have said the Sirens from the book Odyssey were lamias.
The student wanted to get a banaustic career.
post #6 of 17
Even though I find the defense of oneself floccinaucinihilipilification, even if one is attempting to besmirch you, I will tell my tale regardless.

While walking past a woman, I turned to my friend and told him that that she is callipygian.
The perspicacious young lady turned and said, "You pig! Just because you are a sesquipedalian, doesn't mean that you can comment on a woman's body as she walks past. Your choices in conversation are simply banausic! Go read some Butler and Hasslinger you uncouth fool!"
Taken aback by her sudden logorrhoea, all I could muster was, "Oh my, apparently I complimented a lamia." She looked at me, sneered and walked off.
My friend turned at to me, laughed, and said, "Droviin, you need to overclock your lexicon before you engage in a duel of words."

...And I had just wanted to pay a compliment.

The author besmirched my good name by spreading slanderous rumors about me.
The perspicacious man was able to figure out which companies to invest in to make a profit.
Overclocking a computer requires much technical skill and advice from fellow experts.
Although you may find my advice floccinaucinihilipilification, I found it to be extremely useful in many situations.
His logorrhea kept me up all night, and I couldn't even cut him off for fear he would be offended.
I don't like people who use sesquipedalian words; it makes them look pretentious.
The lamia came at night to steal my money, but I was able to fend it off with some salt.
I love frequenting yoga classes because I can find many callipygian women.
All his furniture was purely banausic; there were no decorative items at all.

I would hate to besmirch the author of this post with logorrhoea. However, it is difficult to refrain from being sesquipedalian in a thread such as this. I usually visit this forum with intentions of overclocking something; be it my phone, tablet, computer, or calculator. I don't visit this website in hopes of meeting a lamia simply because most of them are callipygian. Those matters aside, most members and moderators here are quite perspicacious which makes reading their posts quite enjoyable. Few of them practice floccinaucinihilipilification, which I find very admirable. This shall be my last sentence, I bid you all the best of luck and to continue on living your banausic lives.

Doesn't seem like anyone else will muster up the willpower to enter so I will be closing the competition by 10pm UK (~5pm EST). I know the time difference isn't ideal for late entries but you've had a week and I think it should be finished before valentines ends here in the UK. Plus I've had a 14 hour day and am getting up very early tomorrow so not feeling too sympathetic tongue.gif Anyway. One final good luck to any Johnny Come Latelys wink.gif
