You can always tell who was in an HBO early-adopter household as a kid.

Sniglets from Not Necessarily the News That Have Stuck With Me for Lo, These Thirty Bygone Years: A Partial List

furbling: the act of shuffling through the maze of all the line dividers in an airport or wherever, when you are the only one there

backsplatch: the mud/water/whatever that splashes up your back when you ride your bike through a puddle

meganegabar: the big line you write all the way to the end of the written dollar amount area on a check, to keep someone from writing "and one million dollars" to the end of it

cinemuck: the crud that covers the floor of a movie theater (combination of spilled soda, popcorn, candy, etc.)

I loved Sniglets! Favorite one was "bleemus": The disgusting film on the top of soups, puddings, and cocoa that sit out for too long.
