Alps – Vir-ti-gi-nous

Weird, I always, thought that the word Virtiginous meant “Steeply sloped,” as in: “That’s a nasty virtiginous broken-bottle-strewn 10 foot drop, you wouldn’t want to fall down that. Dave.”

But actually: vertiginous \vur-TIJ-uh-nuhs\, adjective: … 2. Causing or tending to cause dizziness. 3. Turning round; whirling; revolving…

So, as one might feel having whirled, say, 15 times, clockwise, around a vertically-held paddle, as part of a race? Or executing three perfect backward tumble-rolls, all in a strictly downward direction, then landing carefully wedged in a tree?


Some games are obviously best left to the professionals.
