Don T., I noticed with pleasure that you switched on your spelling checker. (About a year ago, we had a thread titled something like "Are Mudcatters political ignoramouses?" - you need not read it to imagine the content. I suggested a neologism "ignora-mouse", plural "ignora-mice", for a person too shy to acquire any knowledge about controversial topics.)

Your sentence contains some excellent $5ers, but some others are more in the realm of scientific terminology. Scientists are not profound, they are geeks or fachidiots - no longer cool, sorry. I think "oftentimes" sounds archaic (or am I mistaken?), which ain't cool either.
