Tractable

verb, past tense

Followed a boy cow without actually seeing him.

See Nef Yoo's unending -ble definitions above.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
-- Philip K Dick

What happens when all the renewable energy runs out?

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Or cowboys for that matter.
Seriously this one is on you. If I walk up to someone and say, "suffix: -ble", I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE the first thing they say will not contain the word, "cow", nor the word, "boy", nor any combination of the two.
EDIT: I did some lookin', didn't see any hint in this thread of why -ble is important, not in Nef Yoo's posts anyway, and can't find any records of him saying, "boi" elsewhere (cow and boy are too common to be searched).
