Logarithmic Radial Harmonic Function with 7th order
Journal of Vision
Surely one of the best web based journals in existence ?  I love the layout.  I love the animated GIFs that summarize each research article.  And it's targeted at the perfect price point - yes it is free.

Wretched Writing Welcome
"It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents--except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness."
--Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, Paul Clifford (1830)

Holy Crap!

Repentence is Futile

(1)....a derogatory term for false speech in general, esp. knowing and deliberate falsehood and obfuscation.
(2)...a more technical and clinical term denoting speech (typically but not necessarily commercial or political) that employs euphemism, convenient vagueness, numbing repetition, and other such rhetorical subterfuges to create the impression that something has been said.
usage note:...spoken in a moderate tone of voice, it takes on sense (2) which long ago lost any vulgar connotations it may once have had. [but] is easily confused with sense (1) and deemed a vulgarity or even an obscenity. It is inherent in the mentality of ... bulshytt-talkers that they are more prone than anyone else to taking offense (or pretending to) when their bulshytt is pointed out to them. This places the .... observer in a nearly impossible position. One is forced either to use this "offensive" word and be deemed a disagreeable person and as such excluded from polite discourse, or to say the same thing in a different way, which means becoming a purveyor of bulshytt oneself and thereby lending strength to what one is trying to attack. The latter quality probably explains the uncanny stability and resiliency of bulshytt. Resolving this dilemma is beyond the scope of this Dictionary...
