    "Quantifying the resource of sharing a reference frame", S.J. vanEnk

    Okay, not that funny, but that's because it's not the original title. The author comments read, "Comments: Updated title as PRA did not accept the word “refbit” in the title: PRA accepts neither neologisms (=”a meaningless word coined by a psychotic”, according to Webster), nor novophasms"

    Obviously a "never give in" attitude. :rofl:
