    pulchritude - one definition is "physical beauty"

    learned from (michael parker-stainback's english translation of) sergio gonzalez rodriguez's "the femicide machine", a text on the crazy insane rate of horrific murder of young women in ciudad juarez

    Pulchritude. It means "physical beauty". I learned its meaning on an internet forum thread dedicated to words you recently learned.

    "Propinquity" - forming a bond between people with whom we frequently interact. Came across it whilst catching up on the Freakonomics podcast. I may have encountered before but I can't recall.

    Mahlneid. Means "meal-envy" in German, or as this article puts it, "coveting thy neighbor's restaurant order".

    I want to believe the words works for internet friends too and I think it should be the next 'hat'!
