Hi Mark Nice meeting you. You must be short of dictionaries! Onelook lists 20 dictionaries with definitions. Also how is a cluon harmed? Just interested in the discrepancy.

See if they have a definition for "YHBT" (perhaps the oldest T in the book).

Hi Mark Nice meeting you.

Thank you, thank you. Likewise.
You must be short of dictionaries! Onelook lists 20 dictionaries with definitions.

Oh heavens no. I have three. And each of them is full of definitions. Still, no single dictionary has the word "gullible", which I'm sure you have noticed.
Also how is a cluon harmed?

By collision with a bozon, of course. Think matter and anti-matter.
Just interested in the discrepancy.

Not at all. Just one of the many disservices we proudly provide our customers, you know.

Not to my knowledge. What you seem to have failed to notice is that Mark is not at all serious. He's writing humor. The facetious statement that "gullible" is not in the dictionary is old enough to have a long, gray beard, and the stuff that you snipped is similar broad humor.
IOW, it's a joke, son. Relax and enjoy it.
