I got one for ya all: "GRAVITAS" ... Sam Donaldson, the newsman from the planet Vulcan, threw that word around "voraciously" (there's another one off the top of my head ! ) back in the day.

Until fully awake and alert, there are those who remain recalcitrant to employ heterogeneous vocabulary before imbibing a jentacular cup of tea.

That was actually a commonly heard phrase in the late 60's hippy era. Although originally a term regarding the English Church and government, it began to be used as reference to ideology against conventional values and traditions. At least that's how I remember it. :)
