Now that's funny

Recommended Posts

Just been browsing the site and found the following on the "Glossary" page.





A non-geocacher. Based on "Muggle" from the Harry Potter series, which is a nonmagical person. Usually this term is used after a non geocacher looks puzzled at a geocacher making circles with their GPS receiver, or when a non-geocacher accidentally finds a cache. Geomuggles are mostly harmless.




We just wondered what other funnies cachers could come up with.


To start off, a fairly obvious one :



One which is addicted to searching for plastic boxes containing nothing of any great significance.


Can usually be recognised by their furtive behaviour in woods and other country type locations and pretending that the yellow thing they hold is a mobile telephone.


There is no known cure and Betty Ford as yet cannot help either.


Group therapy might help ...

One at the bottom of the geocaching social scale. An ‘untreated’ Geoholic. Scruffy, dishevelled, possibly sleeping rough in dense woodland. Will do almost anything for a set of freshly charged NiMH cells. Sometimes seen wearing a funny hat.




Age and treachery will always triumph over youth and ability.

I can remember a similar dictionary search taking place in my family over 20 years ago when my father was about to buy a Westerley GK29 yacht. They were all named with words beginning with G & K (or G & C) such as Gilkicker or Globular Klusters (!) - how I would love to buy one now and call it GeoKache!!! icon_smile.gif




Don't you think that sooner or later someone will notice that its a mobile phone not a GPS your using???

I have been following a thread on the sci.geo.sattilite-nav news group - all things GEO. icon_rolleyes.gif



Geosmashing: using GPS-guided weapons to destroy a target

I coined it right here folks


Geospin: using GPS as an excuse to rail against something you don't

like, that involves the use of GPS.

I coined it right here folks


Exclamation at finding a fancy rock in a geocache site:

"Gee, a geogeode!"



Publishing an insult about someone along with their precise location.

U heard it here first!



Putting naked pictures of yourself in a cache.

The picture is taken at a cache site.

I coined it here, folks, and I'm sorry



Flushing your GPS out the toilet.


"Geohashing" - renaming all your waypoints "######" . . . . . .


Geoclashing: Two teams of geochachers arriving at the same time,

with different brands of GPSr.


Geocrashing: driving your vehicle into something or someone because you

rely on your GPS too much.


You mean that the little triangle on the

screen of my SP3 isn't REALLY my car?





Traditional form of Geocrashing involving an absent ferry.


Georashing: 1] hiking too many miles while holding you GPS reciever, so that you develop a rash. 2] being too much occupied by your GPS so that your girlfriend develops a rash. 3] very fast navigation using a GPS


Geomashing, aka Geocrunching: that noise you heard was your gps hitting

the pavement after you took off with it on your trunk, so you back up to get



Geowriting and geopainting: using geographical co-ordinates (for example

a track record) to create a geotext or a geordrawing.

Not only coined it but actually used on this NG by the undersigned



to complain annoyingly or continuously about something perceived as

relatively unimportant in a gps newsgroup (informal). e.g. "joe

mehaffey is a spammer"


The usual cause for geowhingeing is geospamming or goetrolling.


Ok, I'm coining "geohurl", a reflexive upchuck which occurs after being

subjected to one too many "geo-" words.


And I beg to differ: the usual cause for geowhingeing is a sticky

click-stick on a Garmin GPS receiver.


I'm afraid you may be about to geohurl.

I wanted to trademark geonut (as a mild version of gpsnut) but somebody

is already using it!!!

How about defining geoidol and geoidiot to make sure that nobody will

confuse it with geoid.



I'm geo-laughing my geo-*** off ;-p

That was really geofunny !!!!


GEODESIC DOME: A hat with geometrically determined GPS antenna panels.







Geoboring is drilling into the ground to find oil and other resources.

Please refer to your geodictionary.




GeoMoshing: Using your GPS to find the mosh pit.

1) Washing your Geo Metro.

2) Designating your shower as a geocaching site.

BrentC suggests the word Geotrashing as an original, but I'm sure he won't mind me pointing out that I used it in a post way back in December or January. Even then it was not original. There is a thread on the UK forums called Geotrashing, dated March 2002. I like the word. I think its a really good one for the Caching vocabulary. Lets keep using it (but on no account actually *do* it!!)


No trees were harmed during the production of this posting, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced....
