+hairball45 Posted August 3, 2009 Share Posted August 3, 2009 (edited) I find myself thinking the term "muggled" to describe what has happened to the hardware from a device that is in our shop for repairs when it has disappeared. I don't use it with the other folks who work there. To me the term fits. As to the use of the term for outsiders, that's not all that bad either. Some sort of term is needed, and "non- participants" doesn't exactly roll off of the tongue real nicely. As to the concept of Harry Potter being a series of "kiddie books" well I'm not so sure. Yes, the were written essentially for children, but as the series goes on it gets deeper and darker. The characters grow into young adults without being involved in graphic openly sexual situations, possibly the only concession to the intended age of the readers. Murder, deception and dishonesty aren't lacking however. 600 page novels for "kids" isn't what one normally thinks of as "kids" books. Are the situations fantastic and pretty much unbelieveable? Sometimes. Ever read Stephen King? Yeah, I'll use "muggle" in conversations with other cachers, but I have no need of the term in geocaching related conversations with INFIDELS. Like that one better?
