I have a new favorite word.
Yesterday, in the comments after my post on cranks attacking the concept of a scientific consensus, a reader named Craig wrote:
We don’t talk about consensus on these issues today merely because the consensus is so strong that only a dedicated guanophrenic would ever question them.
“Guanophrenic”? I love that word. It has the prefect combination of meaning, in essence, “shithead,” while having a delightfully clever implication of bats as in “batshit insane.” Of course, being a physician, I’d probably prefer the term “guanocephalic” proposed later in the comment thread. Either way, I’ll steal it.
