A Table of Over 125 Supernatural Collective Nouns in Text Format

I found a poster of collective nouns for supernatural and mythical sorts of creatures, though some are real now. It was supposedly from Wondermark, with David Malki as the only person’s name on it, without clear indication as to how he is associated with it all. However, I needed the information in text, and in a table, not a small graphic. So with a little formulaic help from Excel, I typed out a minimal amount of text and let Excel create the rest for me.

Below is a table of supernatural collective nouns, in text and alphabetical order for all the creatures, unlike the poster that grouped them so you’d have to know in which group something belonged to find it properly. It’s just easier in pure alphabetical order for them all.

There are some pretty cool collective nouns in this group, btw! My top 3 are:

  • An audacity of gargoyles
  • supremacy of dinosaurs (a term you can use quite often)
  • An eminence of centaurs.

What are your favourites?

Transformers G1 and Movie Facebook Friends Tagging Meme Posters

At the bottom are four Facebook friends tagging memes of the Transformers.

The top one is from the movie Revenge of the Fallen, while the others are from the old so-called Transformers G1 (Generation 1) cartoons. I grew up with the G1 set, but that is not why I like it more. There is just way too much detail in the new robots. There aren’t easy faces to recognize and all their parts are so detailed it looks like one good punch and the whole robot would fall apart.

The middle one is of G1 Transformers, Autobots and Decepticons.

The third one is of G1 Autobots.

The bottom one is of G1 Decepticons, to tag your BAD friends with.

The graphics used for the G1 tagging poster is from Botch’s Transformers Box Art Archive, probably the greatest collection of Transformers cartoons out there! Wow! I can spend days on that site! The detail and completeness of the collection is phenomenal, although I’d have added a bit more punch to many of the scans (i.e. a tad more contrast and saturation). However, if you’re thinking of introducing this site to your kids, just be warned that there is at least a smattering of expletives there which I have come across. That’s not so much my criticism as something to take note since I am directing people to the site.

Face Time Facebook Picture Tagging Meme

Please click here for a complete list of over 100 Facebook picture tagging memes on this site with which you can use for fun with your friends.

This is my latest Facebook 2.0 picture tagging meme or action tagging memes. It is named after the Web 2.0 concept, where it’s not just fun and games but result in real life actions. The latest one is to, ironically, get people off Facebook for some real life, face time, interaction.

You use this to tag people and let them know you’d like to see them in person. This is probably best for those who live near you but you haven’t seen lately, you don’t see often or often enough. Old high school, middle school, junior high or even elementary school friends we have on Facebook comes to mind. Same with those on past clubs, teams, work places and such. We have them on Facebook and it’s nice to be in touch again, but some we probably haven’t seen in person since. I know I have a few, and I know lots of people who do, too!

Here’s to “keeping it real” on Facebook!

Unlike most of the other Facebook picture tagging memes you’ve seen out there, it doesn’t really matter which icon you tag someone with here. It’s just to send a little reminder, in a fun way besides the other means like sending an email, to let you know you’re thinking of them. You can also take people off the list once you see them, as well as tag them again when it comes time to do so in the future.

Here’s how to get this Facebook picture meme to reunite in person, get some face time or just to see someone for some meaningful interaction:

  • Click on the picture to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!

Least Likely To Facebook Tagging Meme

After creating my version of the next generation of pictorial Facebook tagging meme in the Most Likely to version,the logical progression was a Least Likely To version below so this is original at the time of posting as far as I know it. While one can use this  poster in a pessimistic way towards tagging people for the future, to identify friends who would be least likely to do something, I meant it as a reflective exercise with the instructions being to tag friends who were least like to do something.

This is an exercise to acknowledge how people change in big ways we don’t expect, but that we should afford them the chance to in life, rather than blocking them in by removing their potential. I’m generally a positive kind of guy, though with a bit of a wicked sense of humour, at times, as you can see by some of my choices in the poster below. As a result, despite using the same poster as the Most Likely to version, I changed the picture text to be more general in some circumstances. We may dream or lift others to the post of president, for example, but in reality, just being a leader applies to far more of us than president, no matter what kind of president you want to consider.

Here’s how to get the new graphic for your Facebook fun:

  • Click on the picture below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!
  • Click the Back button on your browser to return to this post.

In case you don’t recognize some of these people, they are as follows, left to right:

  • Top: Peyton Manning, Wangari Matthai, Osama bin Laden, Paris Hilton, Jet Li
  • Middle: Pamela Anderson, Bob Dylan, Oprah Winfrey, the current Dalai Lama, Sue Johannson
  • Bottom: Claudia Schiffer, Martha Stewart, Bill Gates, Anna Nicole Smith, Barack Obama

I’m too tired to put links to all these people but you can Google them, and maybe guess why I’ve put labeled each as such.
