Cool words: avuncular, bloviate, truthiness

I came across some cool words today while reading some amazon reviews:

"All this is done in a very avuncular style and I must admit I enjoyed reading the book, and trying out some of the examples/topics on my PC."

"Pages of windy bloviation about how XML doesn't understand tables but but precious little on how to use CSS."

I've started a list of cool words (not much in there yet--just the three I'd mentioned). If you find any similarly interesting and choice words, please add them to the list!
