Thank you, Riley. I know what you mean about that word. When I'm talking to myself, I just say "Triak".

I love the full title. Probably because it contains the letters "kont" which is Dutch for butt or arse. Ashamed to say this appeals to my simple sense of humor :D

If you want keep it above the belt, as it were, the "tria" + "kontam" makes me think of something being thrice contaminated.
