sleep-eatEdit

Though this was originally a Wonderfool vandal entry, I actually do see a lot of citations for its usage as "sleep-eat". Let me see if I can find enough citations to support sleepeat. (sleepconduct is pretty funny though, I'd hate to admit) Philmonte101 (talk) 03:30, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Annnnnnd sleepeat is attestable, just barely, as an alternative form. I could've put in more quotations for it, as there were more, but I decided just to put 3. Philmonte101 (talk) 04:10, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
I killed the "sleepest" typo thing because that's just appalling. Bashing the wrong keys with one's fat fingers is not a matter of spelling but of motor control. Equinox 14:49, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

I don't think it's that important. Decision-making processes like RFVs should be archived for future reference, but user-page chatter isn't such a big deal. Equinox 19:50, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

WTF? Do you understand that message? --Turnedlessef (talk) 23:16, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Two jokes.Edit

Just like that one time when I did brown leaf, I also did sleeparrest and sleepsleep. Those the only joke entries I'm ever going to do (until April Fool's). Philmonte101 (talk) 10:56, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

There have been actual cases where a person has killed somebody in their sleep. One guy had been attacked by a youth gang, dreamed he was fighting them again, and woke to find he had strangled his wife. Must feel pretty awful. Equinox 00:18, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

orichalcumEdit

[1] The ‘sic’ was because the text calls it a ‘red metal’ but all the dictionary definitions say it's yellow. Ƿidsiþ 08:10, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

Okay. I've put it back. You can always undo my edits if you have a reasonable explanation for the edit summary! Equinox 00:16, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Oh sure, I would have done. I just prefer to raise it with an editor first in case I'm missing something. Ƿidsiþ 06:39, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

playstationEdit

I could've sworn I heard this used as a noun somewhere. I can't find anything in 19th century or 18th century Books, but I feel like I've heard it or seen it used before in the sense of "a station used for playing, of any sort" such as maybe in a sport? Possibly related to playground or playfield? In any case, this one's probably pretty rare. Could you help me out with this one? It would be hard to find cites for this because most of the usages of the word "Playstation" refer to the console. Philmonte101 (talk) 03:48, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Oh and see WT:Requested entries (English)#P 2016 for more info. Philmonte101 (talk) 03:50, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
I found a usage, but don't know if it's enough. It seems to be used to refer to (any) video game console in this 1987 textbook: "Depending on the beholder (and the motivations of the IT supplier), access to IT is through a versatile home computer, an intelligent audiovisual playstation, a display telephone, or an electronic kiosk in a public place."

In a completely different sense: (from 1931) "Number of municipal playgrounds, 29, of which number 23 are owned by the District government, 6 are owned by the Federal Government, and in addition to these there is one playstation operated" [3] which would mean "a station of any kind used for playing".
