The affliction suffered by all pedestrians in the Boston, Massachusetts area. Symptoms include being completely invisible to car, truck, and taxi drivers whilst being visible to everyone else.
The zone of a Boston drivers vision between the left and right most periphery when applied to living objects through the windscreen.
Driver to Policeman: "How was I supposed to see him ? the guy was in my Invisiped zone!"
Driver on Mobile Phone driving one hand on wheel at 40 mph in the 25 zone towards the "State Law: Yield to Pedestrians" sign: "blah...blah....hey Buddy, Did you see that Sox game ? Ortiz really hit the bawl outah the pahk this..."
Driver : "Hey, did you hear that ? One of those invisipeds ! Anyway, you wanna hit up the Purple Shamrock tonight" <accelerates>
The taxi narrowly avoided crushing the most of feet of the invisipeds waiting on the corner as Omar uttered "نعم أنا الأم تعلم قيادة السيارة بشكل جيد" to his distant mother. "Calling card only 2c a minute for 8 hour call Algeria" he said to his white knuckled passenger watching the agonized faces of the flat toed bystanders as she wiped the beads of sweat from her brow.
An uncomfortable suspensionless former police vehicle with more than 1 billion miles on the odometer and with objects on the front seat more important than passengers. Usually driven by non english speaking persons with blue-tooth mobile phone implants that are permanently on, resulting in the inability of the driver to communicate regarding the fare, destination, alternative routes or how to turn off the loud advertising video.
Boston Taxi's are powered by gas guzzling pulse engines - resulting in the characteristic "on" "off" cycle as the drivers coax the vehicle forward with the characteristic on again off again pump action on the accelerator.
The Boston Taxi arrived. Only 3 of the 4 in the group could enter due to the front seat being occupied by a sandwich.
We pulsed from Boston to Roslindale, despite the destination being Milton.
An extremely boring and poorly constructed paragraph about a personal adventure. Often peppered with internet acronyms such as "LOL" in an effort to raise the interest levels from absolute zero to just above.
A badly thought through personal bloggers paragraph about their latest "adventure". Often so boring as to appear only 2-3 times after telling everyone they've started a personal blog then to disappear into the void following a complete lack of interest from peers and friends. In some cases paraventures can lead to premature death from loneliness or worse, facebook defriending and social network rejection or "hiding" by peers.
Paraventure's are typically about as mentally stimulating as the feeling in ones legs after the spinal chord has been severed just above the waistline.

Paraventure's are great aren't they? It keeps the bores off the street and out of the pubs as they cook up their next mind numbing paraventure. Keep wifi out of pubs campaign 2011: no proto-novellists, bloggers, or people who dont want to converse in person thank you. Anyone fancy a pint ?
