comment British and American slang words for immigrants?
I didn't think that alien had this connotation? Is that for sure?

comment “Grudge” vs. “begrudge”
@FumbleFingers I prefer and... I don't really understand the desire to edit this. Based on the meta question it doesn't seem like the community formed a consensus that these changes should be made. :/

comment “Far side of the Moon” in fewer words?
I will consider adding it as an answer. I have to think of a better riff due to your good point above.

I did see that. I was attempting humor.

To Floyd-ian boon, you seek to shorten the dark side of the moon, if a portmanteau will do, I suggest posterilune.

comment Is “Canuck” offensive?
@Sam However there is a difference because Canuck describes those on the team, while Redskin describes a minority not particularly represented on the team. See Alain's answer.

comment Is there a word to describe a person who likes chaos?
Gadfly is another useful special case. Thank you. The portmanteau is amusing, and the dnd reference appreciated. I also considered CG, and part of the question came from that situation.

An amusing exemplification of why maniac wont work is manic organization. :P Also, unfortunately the other three add too much weight. Thanks though.

It possible you could claim that a person with the aforementioned traits is a bedlamite, but this is not what I am going for here.

Chaotic isn't quite right. To say a person is chaotic is different than those traits I describe above. But I do agree that mania does not imply chaos.

This is good. I do wish pandemoniac referred to a person rather than a setting, but I agree I could get away with this. I could be perverse and say pandemaniac ;) which is a good compromise among your answers. :)

This is amusing, and in a certain sense fine. But it isn't quite ok. I understand punning on entropy, but actually the latin doesn't translate the way we would like. en.wiktionary.org/wiki/entro

Both useful answers. To be honest, I had an even more nefarious connotation that mischievous. These are both great substitutes in the right situation.

Ya, I definitely am not thinking of anarchy. But I can see the relation.
