    Regards,   Tom

  5. Bill Ward says:

    New word submission:  Superia
    This is the feeling you get when you see someone else doing something too slowly, or perhaps not in the right way, ACCORDING TO YOU.
    An example is when someone is trying to fix a jam in a photocopy machine.  When you are WATCHING someone doing their best to fix the jam, you have all kinds of IDEAS or WAYS that are different than what is being done.  
    The feeling you are experiencing, as an OBSERVER, is "superia".
    More details to follow, as needed.
    Thank you!
    Sincerely,
    Bill Ward
