Here at the way of the geophysicist. We love neologisms. How do you like this one?
The Story of Sisyphus
Sisyphus is a figure from Greek mythology. He was a pretty smart fellow, tricking death several times. However, in the end he is punished with the eternal task of pushing a boulder up a hill. Upon almost reaching the top the boulder will always roll down again.
Have you ever picked and re-picked and re-re-picked a horizon or velocities? Then you know that feeling of being geophysyphus.
PS: Yes that IPA code is actually correct.
