GRE Words of the Day! Mendacious, Pusillanimous, Penurious, Mettle, and Consonant

I just took a GRE practice test and these are the words I didn't know. If you click on the word to the left of the colon it will take you to the definition; if you click on the word in the sentence it will take you to a picture I found by typing the word into google image search.

mendacious: It would seem that the good people at find Bill Clinton to be mendacious.

pusillanimous: On the other hand, the folks at find Bush to be pusillanimous when it comes to dealing with corporations.

penurious: Nevertheless, John Franco has them both beat when it comes to being penurious about giving up hits.

mettle: Artist Richard Krause has them all beat, displaying mettle in his paintings and his puns.

consonant: But despite their differences, Bush, Clinton, Franco, and Krause are all part of the flow of the universe, just as in this zen painting chaos is consonant with form.

Hmm... You can just hear ol' Bill playing the part of Big Daddy...
"Mendacity. What do you know about mendacity? I could write a book on it...Mendacity. Look at all the lies that I got to put up with. Pretenses. Hypocrisy. Pretendin' like I care for Big Mama, I haven't been able to stand that woman in forty years. Church! It bores me. But I go. And all those swindlin' lodges and social clubs and money-grabbin' auxiliaries. It's-it's got me on the number one sucker list. Boy, I've lived with mendacity. Now why can't you live with it? You've got to live with it. There's nothin' to live with but mendacity. Is there?"

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

When someone writes an article he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her mind that how a
user can know it. Therefore that's why this paragraph is great. Thanks!

I do not know if it's just me or if everybody else experiencing issues with your site. It seems like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.
