Entry:    paralytically (adj.)

Definition:    In a paralytic manner; by, or as if by, paralysis.

Other:    You know, I’m not really sure why I included this term when re-reading Infinite Jest.  If I wasn’t so obsessive-compulsive about the project I’d just strike it out now – but once it’s been writ, it must be included.  I guess you could say that my ability to edit my own selections has been paralytically hampered.
