Lately I've had an infactuation with all things Madagascan, especially lemurs. I thought I heard a sifaka in the tree at my bus stop this morning, but it turned out to be the neighborhood's cat-of-the-week in heat.

A non-existent word that, no matter how many times you smack someone upside the head trying to correct them, they refuse to believe the word is actually pronounced "infatuation". INFA-TUATION, you stupid kids. Making me waste my time trying to reach you.
Jerkoff: "I thought I loved her but I think I was just infactuated. SIGH........"

Smarter person: "...I didn't understand a word you just said. I think you mean infatuation?"

Jerkoff: "No, infactuation. You said it wrong."

Often confused for infatuation, Infactuation should be recognised on it's own terms as being in the state of obsessively seeking the facts. People who try to win arguments by using either real or made up evidence are guilty of being in this state.
How dare you accuse me of infactuation, I'm only telling you what the report says.
