    Twilight Zone involved a character who found that everybody else's use of language was drastically changing over time, but he was stuck with the old meanings (it started when people in his office started saying "dinosaur" instead of "lunch"; he thought it was some prank or fad, but then he got a call from his wife saying that their daughter appeared to be sick and didn't eat her dinosaur). Some people have commented that that's exactly what some forms of receptive aphasia seem like.

    Banksters are harmful for the same reason neutrinos are harmless: neither are inclined to share what they've got (wealth and energy, respectively)
