Word of the Day — Misanthropy

Ah, Sherlock Holmes.  One of the best places to hear cool words.  Especially the Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu  Sherlock redo, Elementary.  Gotta love a show where “John Joan” Watson is a gal who makes Sherlock think.

Okay, gushing aside, misanthropy was used in a recent episode and I love it.

misanthropy   [mis-an-thruh-pee, miz-]

noun

hatred, dislike, or distrust of humankind.
Sherlock was saying it was easier when he believed in misanthropy because then he could distrust everyone.  It was brilliant, and I think I may have to use that word just for the heck of it.
