To be watahable – to neither entertain nor bore the viewer.

The Guilt Trip wasn’t good, but it had watchability.Yeah, ‘watchability’ just hits the spot for movies and TV shows that aren’t good but aren’t so bad that you have to turn them off five minutes after they start – some programs just have watchability. We started saying this word after Coors Light proclaimed it had drinkability, which is right on: it’s not good beer, but one can drink it and complain only a small amount.

Ravel or Unravel?

Who let this happen?

This is the definition for ravel:
to disentangle or unravel  the threads or fibers of (a woven or knitted fabric, rope, etc.).

Now check out the definition for unravel:
to separate or disentangle the threads of (a woven or knitted fabric, a rope, etc.).

What the fuck?!?  It’s the same fucking word!  What’s with the prefix/no prefix edition?  And look at the definition for ravel – the assholes at Reference.com included unravel in it!  You can’t take the larger version of the same word and drop it in the definition!  I bet they define ‘impossible’ as “the opposite of that which is possible.”***  Assholes.

If you don’t want to go around telling people to “Please ravel the Christmas lights,” that’s fine, but let’s get rid of ravel.  Strike that archaic shit from the dictionary!

***(Oh, look, they do – I was just kidding around!  That’s so lazy!)
