today's wwftd is... antiscian
- the worthless word for the day is: antiscian
[fr. Gk anti, opposite + skia, shadow] /an TISH iun/
pertaining to those who live on the same meridian, but
on the opposite side of the equator, so that their shadows
at noon fall in opposite directions
"Those who live north of the equator are antiscians to
those on the south, and vice versa; the shadows on one
side being cast towards the north; those on the other,
towards the south."
- Webster's Dictionary (1828)
Southern brother, it's most odd to see
That your shadow's behind, as with me.
North and south-what a riddle-
The sun's in the middle.
We're antiscians, don't you agree?
- Robert (Bob) Hogg, OEDILF
this is (mis)defined on some word lists as 'someone who
lives on the exact opposite side of the world'
