New words I learned from my hyper-intelligent friend David:

tantalus: From legend of the King of Lydia who in Hades was submerged in a pool of water up to the chin with a fruit bough above his head, both of which pulled away or receded when he tried to eat or drink. Where we get our word "tantalize."

chimerical: (pronounced KYE-merical) product of unchecked imagination, fantastical or improbable vision or scheme.
