First, and most obvious, is that temious appears to be a real word, not a modern slang attempt at expressing something lamely due to a lack of education in language arts.

Second, temious is more bare-knuckled and disrespectful - noble qualities in forum street fighting.

From the Urban Dictionary:

"Truthiness: The quality of stating concepts one wishes or believes to be true, rather than the facts."

"Temious: Made up, fabricated. Something which sounds true but has no basis in fact or reality."

In temious, one may, or not, wish a thing to be true... it's more of a cage match thing.


I find your discussion both truthy and temious. devil
