Seeing as they posted one right after another, neither of them has taken their excessity it's to the point of being unique. Also, what is excessity? Do hipsters buy their excessities in the excessity department so that they can excessitize?

Excessity is the mother of invention.

I'm all about the simple bare excessities.

 

Seriously, poor form to pick at someone's small error in their second language (how many of us write in a forum in a language that's not our own, and flawlessly?), but actually I'm delighted by the accidental invention of this word.  "Excessities" is really what SF is all about: what we consider to be "simple", "getting the basics right" and indeed, "classic and timeless" - the mere baseline, that even in most formal office environments would be considered a vain excess: our "real ancient madders", carefully-selected merino suitcloth, our obsessively-sourced welted shoes and our care in choice of tailor, gorge and buttoning point.  Vain, obsessive, extravagant and irrelevant to the many, and yet somehow vital to the few.  

 

These are our excessities.  Brilliant word, well done.

Yeah, I felt like a dick as I wrote it, but I too enjoy the accidental word.

Ah, we all do it.  And it's great, isn't it?

 

I mean, I'm not saying that our blurring of what would be excessive to most into necessity for us, is actually wrong.  I think it's more a matter of knowing something, being unable to un-know it.  No matter what happens in life, I'm pretty confident I'll never buy a pair of glued-together shoes, or a jacket with massive armholes, or polyester trousers.  It's not snobbery...it's just progress, isn't it?
