Realize Magazine's 101 Coolest Words

Being a compendium of words divine, puerile, absurd, vulgar and altogether wonderful

Words that are either awesome to roll across the tongue, or of which it is startling to consider the meaning, or curious etymology. Or all of these things.  

I post the list, sans definitions and etymologies, for the pure enjoyment of the words themselves, for a moment of raw marveling at what is, IMHO, the most amazing language on Earth.
