The New 100 Words

The New 100 Words

Here's the initial notice you received when visiting the recently redesigned 100 Words for the first time last year.

I'm not sure I 100% like the new design over the old design even now - the old one was charming in its own way, and more about the writing than the layout; the frills that come with it now. But they did squash a bundle of bugs, and it's both faster and feature-rich now!

So I do appreciate the new, until this too is old and views change, which in this world we skew... let's keep writing this through.

Screencap for posterity.

I done been writing for a minute now apparently. :)

Consistent writing count credibility in the form of incremental visual collector-based badge nobilities above - got the final badge last year.

A while back, this happened... and then it went back to normal.

That is all.


Is ripped good, and jacked bad? It seems you can use both of these words to say that for example you have a proclivity for visible ab muscles, but if you're jacked up then... you're in bad shape.

I've seen multiple forms of these words and combinations used in movies recently, as to denote both being gravely injured and/or looking good, so I figured I'd get to the root of it all here. Quick Google...

Ripped, definition #3 (of 3):
Having well-defined or well-developed muscles; muscular.

Jacked, definition #2 (of 2):
(Of a person) having very well-developed muscles.

The source here being Oxford Languages. Merriam-Webster has similar definitions for both.

Jacked up, on the other hand, traces back to the primary definition for jacked, of being physically or mentally stimulated from the effects of a drug or stimulant. (Oxford Languages)

It's not official, but in common slang it thus means: Wrecked, messed up.
As you would be were you under the influence of drugs as they were said to influence you with continued usage.

There's no similar slang for ripped up, though literally it means the same.

So there. Words: jacket of all trades.

Hard Drive or Harddrive?

Hard Drive apparently.

Even if the split wording doesn't make it sound at all like a computer component.

There's not a single search result for the latter though! Seems people haven't even pondered the distinction, or the correct way of phrasing; of potentially conjoining words... just me. Maybe it's my Swedish grammar logic seeping through...



Just so you know.
