From the Tierra del Fuego:

mamihlapinatapei - a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that neither one wants to start.

Okay, I guess I should have specified my intentions.

By selecting a random word, from a random language, I meant picking a word that's definition would make you think "they made a word for that?" Not so much the stupid translation of "shithead" into another language.

That's not the purpose of this thread.

My word, that's a perfect example of creating a word for something as trivial as a look shared by two people.

Another example:
Zenzizenzizenzic -- the eighth power or exponent of a number.

For example the zenzizenzizenzic of 2 is 256. It was suggested by Robert Recorde, a 16th century Welsh writer of popular mathematics textbooks, in The Whetstone of Wit, published in 1557, although his spelling had the last letter of the word as 'k'.

I'm not saying that English is a random language, but I have a word that's one of my favorites.

Defenstrate- The act of throwing someting or someone out of a window.

Yeah, "they have a word for that?"

I'd like to defenstrate the company cell phones sometimes. Nice smash from 10th story.

Perfect! Awesome example! "There's a word for that?"
