A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: Loss of the ability to sense weight.
From Greek baros (weight) + a- (not) + gnosis (knowledge). Earliest documented use: 1921. A synonym is abarognosis, antonym barognosis. The p-headed word is paragnosis (knowledge that cannot be obtained by normal means).
“Now that I know you have baragnosis, honey -- those jeans do make you look fat.”

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain. -James Baldwin, writer (2 Aug 1924-1987)
