Still-useful words

An interesting list of  "Old English words we should still use today," including this one that applies to my profession:

 Ultracrepidarian (n): "Somebody who gives opinions on subjects they know nothing about."

Lot of that going around these days. In fact, just call me the ultracrepidarians' page editor. I also like this one:

Snollygoster (n): "A shrewed, unprincipled person, especially a politician."

Lot of them around, too. And more than a few ultracrepidarian snollygosters as well.
