What Is Palidors?

See above.

Palidors is the catalyst that has caused me to recant my SDMB philosophy that no post should go unanswered.

Best guess is he’s a quantum physicist from New Jersey.

A “Palidor” is a double-line topic header.

Palidors (noun)
[probably from middle Greek, from palin back, again + dors back]

First appeared circa the other night

1 : an error in usage; especially to misunderstand the purpose of a tool. <what a ~, trying to turn a screw with a hammer!>

2 : a person oblivious to FAQs.

3 : a person who should learn to use a search engine, or could use a set of encyclopedias.

in high school

Palidors is a 13 year old high school freshman currently attending H.B. Plant High School. He doesn’t understand the point of these messageboards, as all questions he has asked so far have been to test your knowledge, he knew the answers in advance.

He got the name Palidors from the game Final Fantasy 3.

Any bets on how long it will take before this ends up in the Pit


Save water drink beer!

Well, Scoob, Satan started a Palidor bash in the pit 26 minutes before you posted, here.

Actually, Palidors is latin for “sack of doorknobs”

…or maybe a 33 year old freshmen in high school? last time I checked, most 13 year olds are not in high school yet…and Palidors certainly does not seem to be one who could be called above average. but…c’est la vie!

tipi :slight_smile:

I was 13 my freshman year of high school.

He’s a will-o’-the-wisp,
a flibbety-gibbet,
a clown.

Palidors is not an asset to the forum.

But, I would like to say a word on his behalf…

Palidors makes me laugh.

Flibbety-gibbet? That’s hilarious!

I love the sound of it, even though I don’t know what it means.


I’m going to work this in first chance I get.

thanks, Moriah.

If you can’t laugh at yourself,
make fun of other people.

Does D-Con make a spray for Palidors?

Does the Department of Agriculture have a Palidors elimination program?

This threat to public health must be stamped out!!!
