If you've made it this far, then you know what we're doing here. Our goal is to get orbisculate into the dictionary, and the way words get into the dictionary is by being used in as many different places as possible. ​

So these are 50 goals, from the ordinary to the audacious and a few in between, for how to use orbisculate. Well, 44. There are 6 still left to be written. If you have any suggestions, shoot us an e-mail at squirt@orbisculate.com. And, of course, if you have any way to actually accomplish one of these, send us a message about that, too, because we have no idea what we're doing here.
